Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything
I loved this book cover to cover. It was full of her own spiritual journey and all the wisdom learned along the way. I am thankful that she wrote this book to help me understand myself better. I am going to recommend this book to others. I do wish the slant on spirituality was stronger and deeper, I found myself trying to grasp it and wanting to read more. Loved it. She speaks my language. It ...
Nine Ways God Always Speaks
Tyndale House Publishers, 2009
When God Speaks, I want to hear him!
Nine Ways God Always Speaks caught my attention immediately. I've pondered life's questions, big and small. I've pondered life's decisions, big and small. I've often wondered if God was speaking, and more importantly, if he was speaking directly to ME. In a way that's real and conversational, Herringshaw and Schuchmann outline the various ways that God speaks. Without being dogmatic or ...

Very professional. Faster than expected.
Very much quick service. Product quality is as said. i would buy from you again.
The Reason for God
I got this book because a friend mentioned how he thought without the Bible, Christianity basically has nothing to fall back on. This got me thinking and I wanted to find a book that would show a reason for God without using the Bible. I bought this book based on someone's review and on the overall customer review. Although I don't agree with everything in this book, I thought the author brought ...
Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit
David C. Cook, 2009
Mr. Chan has done it again in this book -- he helps God to become visible with Scriptural references that aren't laden with complex theology. He explains the purpose and power of the Holly Spirit as a person, who is to be respected equally with the Father and Son, not ignored as "It." He writes insightfully -- and is dead on with me -- about why many of us don't pray to the Holy Spirit, e.g., ...
Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

serious book for serious people
This book is not for the causual-feel good reader. This is a serious book for the serious seeker of God. He dives in to the heart of it. If your looking for a book that will challenge you to read Scripture for yourself and allow God to have it all, then this is a good one.

The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith
DUTTON ADULT, 2008
Book Review on The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller
Book Review By Jason Scott Prodigal God By Timothy Keller This is a well-written book by one of today's great thinkers. Keller takes an in depth look at one of Jesus' most well know parables, commonly referred to as the "Prodigal Son." However, Keller gives a few reasons why that title is a bit misleading. First, Keller gives the definition of the word "prodigal". " The ...
Their Eyes Were Watching God: A Novel
HarperCollins e-books, 2004
World class fiction, quick
The only speedbump in this maddeningly addictive read is Hurston's rendering of dialect, spelled just as it's pronounced. Once you acclimate, and once you know that her writing was based on her astounding academic work as a folklorist and anthropologist, it only takes a few pages before you realize that you're in the hands of a master. The hundreds of people who have taken the time to review this ...

The God Delusion
Houghton Mifflin, 2007
Thank God someone finally said what I've been thinking my whole life (irony intended)
As a person who came from a crazy background as a child-paternal side no religion (but not atheist) and maternal side-southern Baptist, I can tell you that I couldn't agree more with Dawkins. I tried on various religions as a youth but found them limiting and not logical. I choose to study Zoology in college and minor in religion to try and get a more informed world view of religion. What I ...
90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death & Life
I couldn't wait to read more!
I don't get a chance to read much. When I do read, I seem to never finish the book. In this case, I couldn't wait to read! 90 Minutes in Heaven is not only about what Heaven looked like, but the purpose for Don Piper here on Earth. I have read some other reviews and yes, the description of Heaven wasn't a vast majority of the book, however, the experience Mr. Piper went through after he ...
Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
Hay House, 2007
Incredible story of faith in the face of trial. She tells so much about the holocaust and yet you are able to get through it because she did! I usually can't finish books about so much devastation, but she tells the story with so much strength that you are able to see through her eyes the things you wouldn't usually be able to stand hearing. I LOVE this story and learned so much about myself ...
God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything
You don't have to be an atheist or anti-theist to appreciate this book.
I had came back from 3 years over seas and was welcomed in Norfolk, Va by the news that a group of religious extremist that are not fit to be mentioned here were demonstrating at the funeral of a young Marine who was to be buried at Arlington National Cemetary. In my 33 years I have yet to see religion contribute anything positive to society. To the men and women who are of religious belief that ...

Their Eyes Were Watching God
Zora Neale Hurston
Harper Perennial Modern Classics
A masterwork of American Literature
This book is so far ahead of its time, that it's incredibly painful to accept that Neale Hurston never received the sort of honor and respect she deserved as a master writer when she was alive. Mixing Standard American English and dialect and finely crafted figurative language, it may not be an easy read for some, but it is an elegantly crafted work of literature. The novel chronicles the story ...
God Don't Like Ugly
Kensington Books, 2006
Best book of the series
This is one book I wouldn't mind reading again. Although only a story it hurt my heart to endure Annette being molested for so many years and at such a young age by a man living under the same roof. Sadly, this story rings true in real life. But it was refreshing to progress through the story and watch her grow up and find some friends in Pee Wee and Rhoda. Even though they had major character ...
The Pursuit of God
Old LandMark Publishing, 2008
A Must Read - a practical concordance for seeking God!
So many of my favourite writers (Francis Chan, John Eldredge, Randy Alcorn, Dallas Willard) make reference to Tozer that I felt compelled to seek out his wisdom. According to the back of this edition, there are "over three million books by AW Tozer in print", and this one seems to be his defining piece of work. And wow - it's 90 pages (yep, that's all!) of power and Godly insight. This was ...
The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth
Public Domain Books, 2004
Boom food forever
"Bigger isn't necessarily better." Dr Ruth Westheimer This is one of HG's more popular books. This was made into a movie "The Food of the Gods" (1976) and closer to the book "Night of the Lepus" (1972) which was an early form of Rabbit Transit. As with all of HG's work this is more of a social commentary than it is a sci-fi story. A scientist finds a way or a food to keep growth from ...
