Crystal Paine’s new book, Money-Making Mom, gives needed inspiration to wives and mothers on tight budgets that they can help support their family by simply doing what they do best—and making a business out of it.
I recently completed listening to the whole Bible in a year while commuting. In years past, I had only read the Bible through. But listening was a marvelous experience.
This collection of 20 CDs, The Word of Promise: New Testament Audio Bible, offers a wonderful way to consume Scripture.
Most leadership books focus on the “how” of leadership—how to set goals, how to instill vision, how to be successful. But Brad Lomenick’s new book offers a more basic beginning.
The leader’s heart.
It didn’t take long reading this book and I felt like a man who wandered in to a women’s retreat. Whoops. Should I be here? Would this have anything to say to me? Maybe if I stand in the back no one will notice.
I’m glad I stayed.
We need more heroes—and more heroines. Eric Metaxas’ Seven Women: And the Secret of Their Greatness offers examples of those whose great lives came from great choices they made.
Good questions deserve good answers. They’re even better answers if they’re short ones. Clinton E. Arnold and Jeff Arnold have given us the best of both—short and good.
Their volume, Short Answers to Big Questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity, begins where it must if we are to answer questions related to God, Christianity, and the Christian life. Questions about the Bible must first find good answers. Otherwise, we have no basis of authority for answering other questions.
Each of the 50 chapters in this excellent volume uses a question as its title—and a subject as it subtitle by way of a topical overview.
True to form, Max Lucado has penned another fine devotional, this time with the book of Joshua as his springboard.
The idea behind Glory Days’ subtitle, Living Your Promised Land Life Now, is that God has purpose for our lives as Christians that many of us are missing. We have an inheritance we have failed to receive.
David Henderson’s book offers a new take on the classic principles described in Hummel’s The Tyranny of the Urgent and Swenson’s Margin. Tranquility takes its title from Ecclesiastes 4:6:
Better one handful with tranquility
than two handfuls with toil
and chasing after the wind. (NIV)
In other words, we have to make choices. A limited amount of time forces us to admit we can’t do it all and to choose what we will do with life.
It’s tough to synthesize God’s priorities for a balanced life. Trying to include every aspect of our primacies from every perspective is tough sledding. Any book that attempts it must, by necessity, skim the surface in survey rather than offer deep, abiding truths.
Your Blueprint for Life quotes liberally from God’s Word, sources, quotes, and stories to provide a general survey of how we should attempt balance—and therefore, it is suggested, satisfaction.
For years I loved the story of how Ben Franklin refused to take money when he listened to George Whitefield preach. So compelling was Whitefield’s appeal, Franklin would give. One day after hearing Whitefield preach, an empty-pocketed Franklin asked a bystander for a small loan so Franklin could donate.
Outside of this episode, I had never read much about the intertwining lives of these two men—until this book.
