Enter the Ring by D.A. & Elicia Horton

978-1-63146-695-3Enter the Ring is a different book on marriage than some that I read in the past. This book approaches marriage as a fight in two ways: one in which the fight to be right commences and one in which couples should fight for their marriage. Being a married man I found this book a nice read to see that couples will have disagreements but to work out the differences because the marriage is worth it.

This book should be a recommended read for those who are about to marry or have been married recently. The information is real and raw and it will prove valuable to those who have the idea that marriage is 100% bliss and struggling is for those who are not “in love.”

Extraordinary Influence by Dr. Tim Irwin

bookI really enjoy reading leadership books. Recognizing the value of leadership, I strive to be the best leader I can. One area of weakness for me is developing the leadership traits in others. I can become self-focused and ignore the trait of mentorship to the next leader. This book focuses the reader on bringing out the best in others and how to go about doing that.

While the benefits of leadership have been discussed for some time, Dr. Irwin’s take is one of personal involvement which takes it from the realm of theory to the realm of real life. This realism is what makes this book a more powerful read and one that will aid any leader.

50 Life Lessons for Grads by Janet Holm McHenry

970460This little book would be a nice gift for graduates to use as a devotional or thought-provoking read. The 50 lessons are life lessons that are simple to learn but take a lifetime to master. Some of the topics speak on: money, relationships, faith, family, and destiny. While small in size, the lessons contained inside are larger than life.

KJV Minister’s Bible from Thomas Nelson

225_350_book-2529-coverThis Bible is designed for ministers in that it has the full edition of the Minister’s Manual from Thomas Nelson. This Manual has liturgical prayers, guides, and aids for ministers to use for various ministry activities. The Manual is placed between the two Testaments with a thumb index for ease of finding the Manual section.

Outside of this specialty, the Bible is a nicely bound KJV Bible with nice maps, a one-year Bible reading plan, and 30 Days with Jesus sheet. The maps are nicely colored and the reading plans are in an easy to read font.

Thus, this Bible would be a nice Bible to use for ministers who perform visitations of all types and for those who perform various ceremonies when called.

When We Say Father by Adrian & Steve Rogers

When We Say FatherThe Lord’s Prayer is the most well known prayer in the Bible. Often said as a bedtime prayer, at funerals, weddings, or in times of need many will recite this prayer. However, sometimes the profoundness of this prayer can be lost in rote repetition and artistic products.

Steve Rogers, along with posthumously words of Dr. Adrian Rogers, address the Lord’s Prayer in their book When We Say Father . Highlighting just what is meant and the significance of the words used, each section is explored so that the depth and power of the prayer can be understood. I found this small book to be a concise commentary on the Lord’s Prayer and it should be a good resource for those who desire to buttress their prayer life.

NKJV, Deluxe Reader’s Bible, Imitation Leather

225_350_book-2524-coverOne of the reasons that I enjoy reviewing books is that I sometimes get an opportunity to review some Bibles. Some of the Bibles I have review have been great Bibles with various specialities.

This Bible is a bit different in that most Reader Bibles are simply the text with no verse numbers and aid while this Bible has some verse numbers every so often and chapter numbers. While some may not mind this I find it a bit distracting for a Reader Bible. To me, a Reader Bible should be that: a Bible for reading like a book.

Having said that, this Bible does excel in its construction. A nice binding with excellent paper and typeface (10 pt) making it easy to read. There are two ribbon bookmarks which is also a plus. It comes in a strong cardboard display sleeve to keep it protected. In addition, there is a lifetime guarantee on this Bible. All in all, a decent Reader’s Bible that should serve many well for those who do not mind some verse numbers and some headings.

Be the Hands and Feet by Nick Vujicic

9781601426208 copy.png

Nick Vujicic was born without hands or feet but he doesn’t let that stop him from being used by God. In Be the Hands and Feet, Vujicic gives stories of his life as he seeks to take the message of Jesus Christ to the world.

Part autobiography, part inspirational, this book will show that God can use anyone who is willing to be used by Him. I was encouraged with the candor and passion that Vujicic presents himself in this book and how he presses on towards the goal of living out God’s love to all he meets.
