Ascent from the darkness


One of the most amazing testimonies I have ever heard of how God intervened and provided hope and light in the darkest of hours. This book is about a man who made a pact with Satan that caused a 20 year downward spiral that ends in triumph. Leehan was given a specific task by Satan, which caused a group of Christian men to pray for Leehan's soul, even when that task was revealed that Leehan's goal was to kill their Pastor. It is an eye opener to believers of the war that is wagered on our souls between God and Satan and the evil forces that we so easily let in. It makes you want to pray a little harder for those who are struggling and for our families and the wars raging in our worlds. I think this is one of the most gripping, gut wrenching stories I ever read, fiction and non-fiction alike. I'm certain that this story would make a non-believer think twice about the forces of good and evil that truly do exist in todays world. Excellent book, I'd highly reccomend this to believers and non believers alike. Be warned, it tugs at your heartstrings and hard to put down.

Gabby, God's Little Angel (Sheila Walsh) Review


In this children's book, Gabby is a guardian angel sent from Heaven to protect a little girl named Sophie. Gabby is a little clumsy and inattentive until she realizes just how important her role really is. This is also a great book to use for a Sunday School lesson along with the memory verse included at the end of the book “He will put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go” (Psalm 91:11 ICB). It will help children understand that God has angels watching over them no matter where they are, God is always there to help them and protect them. This book has a great moral and is very nice to read to children and would also make a great bedtime story. It gives the overall feeling of security and protection at all times. It also has bright, colorful illustrations!

The Grace of God (Andy Stanley) Review



The Grace of God review by Andy Stanley

Andy Stanley did a great job putting into perspective that while we are not perfect, God’s grace is sufficient for us. Not one of us is deserving of the reward of an eternal life beyond death but the author goes on to tell us that because of God’s grace the prize is rewarded to us, if we chose to accept it. This book was very inspirational and informative and opens the readers eyes towards God’s love and forgiveness backed up with scriptural passages. The author really opens the readers eyes to the gifts God is willing to provide us, if we are willing to accept.
