John Maxwell, the great leadership expert is at it again with his new book entitled “The Leadership Handbook: 26 Critical Lessons Every Leader Needs”¬†narrows the most important lessons that leaders need to 26 and places them in his book. As I began reading this book, I certainly felt like I had read the book prior. Had I, of course not. The book is brand new.

I have read several books by Maxwell, and although they tend … Continue reading Book Review: The Leadership Handbook by John Maxwell

Book Review: Jesus Continued by J.D. Greear

Before Jesus ascended up into Heaven from earth, He told the disciples that “a comforter would come.” Jesus even referred to this comforter as a “promise.” The promise as we all know is the promise of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is without question the most forgotten member of the Trinity (The Godhead- The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). In fact, Francis Chan wrote a book with that same title back in 2009 about the Holy Spirit. J.D. Greear released his new book last month entitled Jesus Continued by J.D. Greear. His discussion is centered around his … Continue reading Book Review: Jesus Continued by J.D. Greear

Book Review: From this Day Forward by Craig and Amy Groeschel

I try to read every Groeschel book that comes out. He has become one of my favorite authors. His most recent work From this Day Forward did not disappoint. In fact, it was a fantastic read. In his book, Craig and his wife Amy co-author the book. In each chapter, Craig writes and Amy closes each chapter with her thoughts. In the book, you will be laughing out loud at times, and at other times in the book filled with conviction. I want to share a quick review of the book with you: The make up of the book is … Continue reading Book Review: From this Day Forward by Craig and Amy Groeschel

Book Review: Beat God to the Punch by Eric Mason

Thanks to B&H Publishing for the privilege of receiving an advanced copy of the book Beat God to the Punch by Eric Mason. I had reviewed his last work entitled Manhood Restored and I was not going to turn down this opportunity. Beat God to the Punch is a catchy title that grabs your interest. It immediately grabbed my interest in that I wanted explanation as to what the title meant. It seems like an impossibility from the title, and I needed clarity as to what the title meant. The book is all about living a grace filled life.¬†Personally, the … Continue reading Book Review: Beat God to the Punch by Eric Mason

Book Review: The God First Life by Stovall Weems

When I was asked to read Stovall Weems new book The God First Life, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. I really did not have a reason, but it made me skeptical. I had this idea that this book would be a bit of a prosperity Gospel kind of book for some reason. These preconceived ideas ended up being a bit off and false. The greatest challenge for me came when Stovall began the book with a chapter entitled “Your Life, God’s way.” This chapter was about doing life God’s way. He mentions something very challenging … Continue reading Book Review: The God First Life by Stovall Weems

Book Review: The Dude’s Guide to Manhood by Darrin Patrick

It is quite obvious that masculinity is rapidly fading. In fact, it is very rare to find true manliness and masculinity in our culture. In his book The Dude’s Guide to Manhood, Darrin Patrick seeks to give men (Christians and non Christians) a road map to finding the path to true masculinity. In the first chapter, Patrick says “I hate asking for directions, most men do. Part of the reason we hate it is that we hate acknowledging that we don’t know.” This is so true. We pretend that we know where we are going, and what we are doing … Continue reading Book Review: The Dude’s Guide to Manhood by Darrin Patrick

Book Review: Letters to God by Cassandra Smith

When I first heard of the release of this book, I was immediately interested. Then, I had the opportunity to read the book and give a review on the blog which made it more intriguing to me. “Letters to God” is a book that details and fills you in on the feelings, the emotions, the joys, and the struggles of being a teenager. In fact, the book is a great representation of the feelings of students across America. The book was written over the years at youth conferences across America. The decisions at altar calls were put into book form … Continue reading Book Review: Letters to God by Cassandra Smith
