Biographies are something we all need to read more of. Reading about a great man of faith who lived in a different time period than you should help cultivate humility in your life as well as encouraging, convicting, and challenging you in your walk. ... Read more

Hiding Place Book Review
Book Reviews / August 10, 2017

There are many books I’ll never read. Some I shouldn’t. Some I should have a long time ago. When I first cracked the cover of The Hiding Place, I couldn’t figure out why it had taken me so long to decide to read it. I also didn’t know that this very book would become one of the most riveting and absorbing stories I will ever read. ... Read more

Christian Book Review: Prototype by Jonathan Martin
Book Reviews / May 21, 2017

Christian Book Review: Prototype by Jonathan Martin I still remember. The complete ecstasy in the freedom I felt as a child, knowing I was completely loved by my father, completely adored by mother, and completely oblivious to the darkness of this world. Time has passed since then and the pain of this broken world is now no stranger to me. Depression and anxiety marked my soul early on, eclipsing for the moment any memory of my unadulterated childlike joy. Jonathan Martin, pastor of Renovatus Church, writes this book to call me back to that joy. And he does it well.     I hadn’t heard of Martin prior to reading this book, but I’m glad I have now.

Idolatry is prioritizing anything over God, and frankly, anything can serve as an idol. Idolatry is a counterfeit god. This may seem puzzling to the average person, as the mention of idolatry usually conjures a picture of statues and prostrated bodies. Yet, the bible writes that idols are actually in the heart. And the catch? They’re not bad things. ... Read more

Christian Book Review: In His Hands by Jason Webb
Book Reviews / May 21, 2016

The sovereignty of God is an anchor in the unforgiving thrashing of waves, a beacon of light in the dark of night. More than an abstract concept, the absolute sovereignty of God is a life-sustaining truth; a truth that Jason Webb had to embrace early in life. Cancer. Plant Explosion. Massive Auto Accident. Trial upon trial which thrust him to the feet of Jesus, leaning and depending solely on God. In his book In His Hands, Webb recounts vividly both his story of trauma and trust, of pain and his Provider, of suffering and his Savior. ... Read more
