Red Letter Words

THE RED LETTER WORDS OF JESUS
By Jack Countryman
Most Bibles published today have the words of Jesus printed in red. The red color is used to represent Jesus’s blood that was shed for us. In this book Jack Countryman compiles over 100 of those red-letter passages into a book that can be used like a devotional. The red-letter words are words spoken by Jesus and are important in our relationship with Christ. Jack gives an explanation and background facts about each chosen passage. The red-letter words teach us how to live, Jesus’s relationship with God and the Holy Spirit. They also reveal His love for us.
As an enhancement, an illustration has been added to each page that shows the red-letter words. In my opinion, this makes them more like a plaque you would want to hang on your wall, the illustration adds to the beautiful words.
The book is very easy to read and understand, a great addition to anyone’s library. I would recommend using this book as a devotional, Bible study help and as a discussion group topic and study.

Every Job A Parable

978-1-63146-548-2EVERY JOB A PARABLE
What Walmart Greeters, Nurses & Astronauts Tell Us About God
By John Van Sloten
Do you think your job is important to God? Does God think your job is important to Him? The answers can be found in this book about jobs and how they serve God. The author has compiled many stories from across the USA about the different occupations and vocations from the people that work every day for a living. Many of these people do not realize how important their job is and how much God is using that job and them for His glory. Stories from the high paying to the job that own pays minimum wages, every job is important to God. The book is written in four parts; What does it mean to image God?, What is a parable, and how is work a parable?, What does God reveal to us about Himself through our work?, and How can we more effectively and consistently image God through our work?.
A very easy reading and a lot of information in this book. The book can be used in discussion groups and other studies. There are sections at the end of each chapter called Lectio Vocatio, that has some discussion questions.
A quote from the back of the book; “John Van Sloten leads an innovative investigation of vocation. It’s a fascinating journey that illuminates how your work is a parable of God—as you work, you are an icon of grace.”
