Review of FaithPath Workbook by Mark Mittelberg

Review of FaithPath Workbook by Mark Mittelberg

About the Book:Faith. Everybody lives by it—even skeptics and atheists! That’s right. Everyone you know trusts something they believe in but can’t prove or know absolutely. They take it on faith. And if you want to talk to your friends about your faith, it helps to understand what they believe and how they got there. Because badgering people to change their minds just doesn’t work. Based on Mark Mittelberg’s book Choosing Your Faith, this workbook (and the DVD it supports) builds on Mittelberg’s sensible, evenhanded approach to evangelism. Inside you’ll meet six fascinating people who looked at the world in six different ways before they embraced faith in Christ. Very likely you’ll recognize people you know—and you may even recognize yourself. Work through Faith Path and you will: Understand people who approach life differently from you Recognize the danger of paths that lead away from Christ Deepen your own faith in Christ and reinforce your reasons for believing Gain confidence in talking about Christ with others Relativists, traditionalists, mystics, authoritarians, and others.they’re all here. And after you understand how these folks think about faith, you can help them find a trustworthy pathway to truth. Because no matter what your friends… Read more »

Blog Tour Review of Jenna’s Cowboy by Sharon Gillenwater

Blog Tour Review of Jenna’s Cowboy by Sharon Gillenwater

About the Book:Can you ever get a second chance at your first love? Jenna Callahan Colby thought she was content. A partner on her father’s successful ranch, she is surrounded by family and friends. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town–the first guy she ever noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago. And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever. Jenna’s cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him–and become the man Jenna deserves. About the Author: Sharon Gillenwater was born and raised in west Texas, and loves to write about her native state. The author of ten novels, she is a member of ACFW and Romance Writers of America. When she’s not writing, she and her husband enjoy spending time with their son, daughter-in-law, and adorable grandson. She lives in Port Angeles, Washington.   My Review: This was wonderfully written. It is a touching story of friendship, first loves, and second… Read more »

Review of Tea Party Revival: The Conscience of a Conservative Reborn by Dr. B. Leland Baker

Review of Tea Party Revival: The Conscience of a Conservative Reborn by Dr. B. Leland Baker

About the Book:From Sarasota to Seattle, something incredible, unprecedented and heartening is occurring: People are coming together to take back their country. They’re saying “enough is enough” to big-government schemes that serve only to fleece our pockets. “Enough” to growth of federal power, and “enough” to the expansion of so-called “rights” that just add more layers of bureaucracy. Tea Party Revival: The Conscience of a Conservative Reborn is the essential guide to this grassroots and growing movement, which burst onto the national stage with the massive 2009 Tax Day Tea Party protests and 912 March upon Washington D.C. Concise, engaging and at times enraging, Dr. B. L. Baker shines a light on the worst habits of government and — most important — what we must do to salvage our ideals. Favoring neither Republicans nor Democrats, Tea Party Revival outlines how true constitutional compliance leads to smaller, limited government, which results in lower spending, lower taxes and greater freedom for all Americans. It explains how overspending has placed our children and grandchildren in fiscal bondage for the next century, while answering, “How did it come to this?” Through it all, Tea Party Revival arms you with the information you need to… Read more »

Blog Tour Review of Corrigan’s Pool by Dot Ryan

Blog Tour Review of Corrigan’s Pool by Dot Ryan

About the Book:Bitter with thoughts of the darkly handsome stranger who promised to marry her and then left town without a word, Ella Corrigan hastily weds a neighboring planter—a man whose cold indifference is merely a disguise for cunning insanity. His cruelty to his slaves horrifies her and, even though her family has owned slaves for generations, she questions the concept of human bondage for the first time while desperately missing her cherished Greenpoole plantation and Corrigan’s Pool … a beautiful phenomenon of nature that the slaves call “Conjuring Pool” for reasons they cannot explain when asked. The South is embroiled in a bitter Civil War by the time Ella Corrigan discovers that Corrigans’ Pool is much more than the exquisitely beautiful pond she had thought it to be all her life. But by the time she learns its dangerous secret she is deeply entangled in a secret of her own … one that has made her a virtual prisoner, hopelessly trapped in a world dreadfully different from her previous existence as mistress of her gentle father’s palatial plantation home along the Savannah River. Stunned by what she sees, she must harden herself to her new surroundings or perish …… Read more »

Blog Tour Review of Knit,Purl,Die by Anne Canadeo

Blog Tour Review of Knit,Purl,Die by Anne Canadeo

About the Book:Counting on each other… Meet the Black Sheep knitters — five smart, funny women who love to knit, gossip, and solve crimes. Gloria Sterling had it all — money, looks, and a new sexy young husband. So when she’s found floating face down in her own swimming pool, shock waves ripple through tiny Plum Harbor. At the Black Sheep Knitting Shop, Maggie Messina and her circle are devastated to lose their dear friend — a woman as colorful as her fabulous yarn creations. The police are quick to call it an accident, but sorting out Gloria’s final hours leaves too many loose ends to satisfy her friends. The vivacious, fiftysomething cougar had her French manicured tips in more than a few pots, and the threads of some inside deals stashed in her chic knitting tote. Who was the last person to see Gloria alive on that quiet summer night? Two empty wine glasses suggest she wasn’t home alone knitting the entire evening…. The Black Sheep need to know the truth and set out to unravel — stitch by stitch — the weighty secrets that pulled poor Gloria under.
