IT’S A GOD THING

IT’S A GOD THING

When Miracles Happen To Everyday People

Created by Don Jacobson and K-LOVE

This is a collection of 46 short stories of how God works in people’s lives. The stories are inspirational and show just how God is still able to work miracles. Those the miracles happen to write the stories, this makes the stories more meaningful and thrilling then having someone else write or tell their story.

I found the stories to be very interesting and agree with the author that wrote, “Miracles are not always big. Sometimes the small ones shout loudest of God’s love and care for each of us."

I enjoyed the stories compiled together in one book. It makes interesting reading and you can see just how God loves each one of us and will work in our lives. We only have to look to see the miracles that He does.

God is not dead, as some may say; He works every day in our lives and is always with us.

The Romance of Religion

THE ROMANCE OF RELIGION

Fighting For Goodness, Truth, and Beauty

By Dwight Longenecker

The first thing I want to say is that I believe that Christianity is a faith and not a religion. Now that I said that, I agree that a romance is loving someone, wanting to be with that someone and wanting to protect or stand up for that someone. If being romantic in the Christian faith is loving the Lord, wanting to be with Him and willing to die for Him then we can or want to call it a romance. However, to turn it into a fairy tale type of romance, I disagree. The author’s point of each chapter was understandable but I would start to lose interest as the chapter continued because of the comparison of religion to fairy tale romances and romantic writings. Many readers may find this book interesting because the author explains the meaning of being romantic and offer examples from many writings. The book, well written, and the author makes you realize that we need to look at religion in a different way than just a belief.

The author talks about heroes in fairy tales, romantic novels and movies, to me Jesus Christ is much more than any hero we can find in any story book or movie, Jesus Christ died for us and what we need to is love, worship and praise Him.

100 Tough Questions

100 TOUGH QUESTION

About God and the Bible

By Stephen M. Miller

We all have questions when it comes to God and the Bible, but you will most likely not find the answers in this book. The author explains that he is not a preacher that he graduated from seminary school but continued to be a news journalist. He says he has investigated information from scholars and beliefs to find answers to these questions. He does offer a variety of information, some of it is scripture verses, to most questions, but does not give a set answer. You are to choose the answer you think is right, rather like multiple choose. In my opinion, the idea for the book is good and the material been presented better. The selection of answers, he offers, will get your mind working but you will need a good understanding of the Bible and help from the Holy Spirit to come up with the right answer. The book is not really for someone who is searching for the truth, without any understanding of God’s word.

Some of the answers offered seem to be nothing more then someones, not the authors, fictional ideas. My opinion is if you want a truthful answer to questions about God and the Bible, there are other books that do a better job answering them.

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