A MONTH OF SUNDAYS;

Striding Toward Spiritual Refreshment With Good Food For The Road

By Paula Hartman

A collection of short stories that deals with things from everyday life. Paula starts by defining the Sabbath in her own words, how she had observed the Sabbath in her family. The author shares stories and situations from her life. Some are humorous others are serious; all tell a story and share a spiritual learning. The author offers over 100 of her family recipes, for each of the 31 Sundays there is a full course recipe, the entree and dessert and sides. The recipes are easy to follow and are simple and easy to make. Some of the recipes are what may be called comfort food.

This book will feel the soul and body. A very enjoyable and easy to read book.

I had an ebook for my review but the cover design is eye catching and colorful. I recommend this book even if you only use the recipes but hope you will read the stories.

I received this ebook free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggersbook review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255

KILLING US SOFTLY

Reborn in the Upside-down Image of God

By Efrem Smith

The author covers a subject in this book that need to be addressed in the Christian church. The subject of how God loves us and will make the changes in our heart after we accept Christ as savior. That the changes are done by Him and not by us. The changes of how we look at things of the world and things in the world. The author shares stories from of his growing up and his adult life. He shares stories from people he knows and scriptures that help us understand how these changes are needed. He uses a term upside-down world, how those views need to change and once Christ is in our heart they will start to change. How we look at others, not to accept the worldview on everything.

The book is very informative and easy to read. The examples shares will help you to understand that we are God’s children and that God loves us and wants us to be His. God does the hard word, all we have to do is listen.

I think this would make a great book to use working with new believers and in discussion groups.

HOW’S YOUR SOUL?

Why Everything That Matters Starts With The Inside You

By Judah Smith

When you meet someone, you usually say or they say to you, “How are you/” or “How are you doing?”, these are standard greeting used every day. What if you asked or was asked “How‘s your soul?”, how would you or others react? Our soul is the most important part of us and the condition of the soul is what we need to be concerned about. In this book, Judah Smith describes the soul, the importance of the soul and what we need to do to improve our soul.

The following quote is from the back cover of the book:

“A quiet soul is far more valuable than fame and fortune. A level soul, a balanced soul, a genuine soul—that is a gift from God.”

The soul is our connection with God and needs to be kept in a healthy relationship with God. Judah uses humor and offer examples from life that will help you to have a healthy soul. He offers scripture and an easy way to understand what is needed to improve your soul.

I found the book easy to read and interesting and believe it could be used in Bible study, group discussions and enjoyable to all.
