There’s nothing more important (or intimidating, it seems like) than trying to figure out how to explain salvation to a child. Where do you start? What do you say? And if you’ve heard how critical the 4-14 window is, the pressure is on! One thing about salvation for kids (or adults), if they don’t understand what sin is (and its forever consequences), why would they want salvation? And there’s a difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge for sure! We can know something with our heads, and not accept it into our hearts. I have a couple of books to … Read More

Today’s topic, Christian Time Travel Series! I love books about time travel, especially when they have Christian values and messages woven throughout the story. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find yourself in another time entirely? This has always fascinated me. (And NOT just because Captain Kirk and Spock made a habit of it… or because I watched “Seven Days” a bit too often) Would you be able to maintain your faith? Would you be able to embrace the challenge of living in another time, and share Jesus Christ with those around you? Or maybe even … Read More

Happy Summer!! Of the many things I am thankful for, one is the opportunity to read amazing books, and Andrew Huff’s books, A Cross to Kill, and now Cross Shadow, do NOT disappoint. It’s a memorable and exciting series, and totally hilarious! A Cross to Kill challenged me, made me shake my head a few times, and had me laughing out loud more than once. It takes a really good author to manage all that and leave you counting down the days until the sequel comes out. Andrew Huff managed this very well! And now the second book is here. … Read More

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
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
