The Jesus Story


Everything That Happens in the New Testament in Plain English

by Dr. William H. Marty

The story of Jesus is a very important story for all to read and know. I found this book very well written and easy reading. It is a great book for new believers in Christ and for non-believer to get an outline of what is in the Gospels. The book should appeal to all believers in Christ and give a refresher to the Gospels and Acts. Dr. Marty has written in story form the story of Jesus in the Gospels and the book of Acts. He has followed the scriptures and given a true rendering of them. The book is not meant to replace the Bible but to create interest in the Bible.

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.

“A Prayer of Commitment”:

Dear Lord, I believe Jesus is the son of God, and that He died for my sins and then rose from the dead. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart forever. Thank you Jesus for coming into my life and hearing my prayer. I ask you to forgive me for the wrong things I have done, I forgive those who have hurt me. I ask this in the name of my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.

“May You be Strengthened With all Power”:

11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy,
12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,
14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1 : 11 – 14 – ESV)

Turnaround God


Discovering God’s Transformational Power

by Charlotte Gambill

In life, we face times of frustration and feel like we do not know where to turn because of situations in our life and that these things will never get better. In her book, Charlotte Gambill, takes us through things that happen in life, hers, ours and the people of the Bible. She shows how God in His love for us is in control of all things, can, and will turn things of life around. God can turnaround our disappointments if we realize that He is there to help us and will if we only let Him. The book has many examples from the Bible and Charlotte does a great job of detailing and explaining these turnarounds. Trust in God because He is there to help us and will turnaround our life.

“Blessed are a Godly Nation”:

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! (Psalm 33 : 12 – ESV)

Check out this verse on Bible Gateway

 For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:14-21NIV
