The Adam Quest

The Adam Quest

MY TAKE: Did you ever wonder what goes on inside the mind of today’s leading edge Christian scientists? Do you love a good story, enjoy biography, and find yourself mesmerized by the way God speaks to people differently? Then The Adam Quest is a book for you. Author Tim Stafford, senior writer for Christianity Today (and not a scientist), captures the stories of eleven scientists who grapple with faith and the mystery of human origins. These men and women are from various persuasions between young earth creationists to Christian evolutionists. I found it an interesting read that...

The Divine Conspiracy

The Divine Conspiracy

My Take: Arguably the best treatment of the Sermon on the Mount and the Kingdom of God ever published. Dallas Willard hit it out of the park with this one. Warning: this is solid Biblical exegesis and will put meat on your bones. Don’t read it if you are not ready to be challenged in your thinking!  Having said that, I think very Christian needs to read this. The content covered is just too crucial to let slide. GBN Rating: ★★★★★   “A masterpiece and a wonder. The book I have been searching for all my life.” (Richard Foster)   Get The...

Jesus In Blue Jeans

Jesus In Blue Jeans

MY TAKE: I can’t say enough about Laurie Beth Jones. Her writing connects with my interior spiritual circuits more than just about anyone I have ever read. This was the first one—the book that introduced me to her. Laurie is down to earth, but she has a gift for encouragement and a prophetic picture painting that is out of this world. Don’t expect a systematic Bible study or a self help manual. Her writing is more like a spiritual jacuzzi. Treat yourself! GBN Rating: ★★★★★ Get JESUS IN BLUE JEANS on Kindle Beginning with the proposition that...
