Babel: 1 Man’s Imagining of Noah After the Flood

ArynChristian Fiction2 Comments

Have you ever considered much about Noah after the Flood? That Noah might have still been alive during the events of the Tower of Babel timeline? I can’t say that I’ve ever put those two things together, myself. I found this week’s book intriguing for that reason. In my mind, Noah ends at Genesis chapter 9, and I never calculated how many years later the Tower of Babel timeline fit in. The two genealogies in 9 & 11, while they give context and important information, break the flow of the story enough to confuse a casual reader (me)! Babel: The … Read More

#1 New Wizard of Oz Allegory: No Space Like Home

Swirling Starfield

I’ve encountered more than one Wizard of Oz allegory in my life, and more than one of them has been very Sci-fi in nature. I especially enjoyed the movie on the Sci-fi network a few years (decades) back. I have to say, though, that today’s book, No Space Like Home is by far the best. This book takes on a Wizard of Oz Allegory with both futuristic/spacetravel fun, and the Good Shepherd into the bargain. It’s like a perfect collection of my favorite elements! Were you a fan of the Wizard of Oz movie growing up? I’m sure the splash … Read More

ArynChristian Fiction, FamilyLeave a Comment

Yellow Background, Finding Joy: It's a Choice, It's a Lifestyle

“Finding Joy” by J.C. Lafler is a story about the challenge of finding joy in life’s most trying circumstances, and corresponding verses in the Bible that lead us to choose joy.

This book is inspiring, and filled with hope in the midst of trials. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a light read, willing to accept a personal challenge, and not afraid of a few tears!

Fun Light hearted books full of adventure

Well, Today’s #ChristianBooktober 28th already, and I’m not quite sure where the month went! I couldn’t put Aiming for Love down. It might have something to do with walking a baby who wouldn’t sleep, and I can still navigate the house while reading on my kindle. But I doubt it. I think it was the storyline. It was very compelling! Brides of Hope Mountain is a unique historical romantic comedy trilogy of funny light hearted books. I’ve now gotten to read both 1-2, and am eager for book 3 to come out.

Hashtag Rogue cover

Come and experience a lesson in how to stand by your convictions in the latest book from Chautona Havig: Hashtag Rogue. To have the courage of your convictions is not easy, but well worth doing! I’m a long-time fan of Chautona’s work, for several reasons. First, because everything I’ve read of hers (yes, even her one kids Christmas story that’s Santa-based) makes me think and grow as a Christian. Second, she writes well, and she writes a lot!! I think she publishes between 4-6 books a year. And she’s generous. Most Fridays she offers one of her books for free!! … Read More
