Best Time Travel Series for Christian kids, teens and adults

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

A Cross to Kill, Andrew Huff's Christian Suspense

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.

Author Steven James Books Are Great Christian Suspense Novels

ArynChristian Fiction3 Comments

I thoroughly enjoy Sci-Fi. You can call me a Trekkie and I wouldn’t mind. Shows like Sliders and Eureka are fun! But they all lack that thread of faith, of being able to trace the fingerprints of God. I also enjoy Crime shows like JAG and NCIS. They cover some awful stuff, but Justice wins. A little graphic sometimes, but satisfying to see the good guys solve the case. Steven James new book, Synapse, has the best of both of those, without any bad language or graphic displays that you have to cover your eyes for. While this is a … Read More

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
