Book Review: Tongue Pierced

Tongue Pierced

How the Words You Speak Transform the Life You Live

Nelson Searcy

David C Cook

David C. Cook

Pub Date   Jan 1 2015

This book reminds us that Words are a gift from God and because they are we have got to mind how we use them.  We are also reminded that words have the power to either build up or tare down.  We are reminded too that the quality of our life is determined by the quality of our words.  Tongue Pierced reminds us of the important of choosing words of praise instead of being in a constant state of complaining. 

In Tongue Pierced we are reminded too that our most important words are the words of prayer we speak to the Lord...

This book reminds us to remember the Curse behind Curse Words and that we need to think before we speak because our words can indeed hurt.  Equally important to how we speak is how we listen.  Others need to know that we are taking time to listen and to hear what they have to say.

I think this book would make a great addition to any library.

Book Review: In God We Trust

In God We Trust?

A Challenge to American Evangelicals
Patrick Nachtigall
Warner Press
Pub Date   Jan 5 2015

This book is a call to American Evangelicals a reminder that America was founded on the freedom of religion.  This book also points out that although many look at the United States as the wealthiest nation some nations like China have more income per capita but they also have lower living standards.  And the author also points out the issues of the "prosperity gospel " but it also points out the fact that the American Church is often generous offering food and shelter to the down and out.

We are told to be warned about those who claim to know when the world is going to end because they cannot know the day or the hour only God himself knows.  It is also pointed out that American Evangelicals are called to spread the gospel around the world.

This book was both well written sand well researched and was full of interesting facts and figures.

Book Review:Beyond I Do

Beyond I Do
Jennifer Slattery
New Hope Publishers


Ainsley is engaged to be married to a psychiatrist and soon to be published author named Richard Hollis the only problem with that is that he has a need to always rescue her.  That is not the biggest problem though the biggest issue is that Ainsley is a Christian and is not sure if Richard is.

Beyond I Do is a story of romance but it is so much more than that, it is a story of making decisions that may very well hurt in order to be right with the Lord.  It is the story of Ainsley's growing faith and the love she feels with Richard as well.

I give this novel five out of five Stars.
