Broken In One Peace
Broken in one PeaceI finished this book a little over a week ago. It was a great read and at times I had trouble putting it down. It is a great testimony to how God can bring us from any depths of despair into peace with him. It is vital that people understand that God can reach them and that they have not fallen too far from Him. It is worth investing in a copy for yourself or a friend.
You can also find out more about the book on outskirtspress.com. It is available for purchase there, as well as amazon.com and bn.com.

The Shack - Reader Beware
The Shack - Reader BewareThere is a book on the market that is causing a firestorm within many churches across this country and possibly further afield also. The book is the story of a man who goes through the heartache of having his youngest daughter abducted and murdered while on a camping vacation with his family. This drives him to blame and hate God for what he sees as a great injustice committed against him.

Several years later, he finds a strange invite from God to join him at the torn down old shack which was his daughter’s last place alive. With great trepidation he heads off for a meeting with God.

At first glance this book may appear to be a Christian book, but it isn’t. That is not to say that it is a bad book, but it is not a Christian book. The book is a work of fiction, ones mans opinion of what it would be like if…

Beautiful Boy - David Sheff
Beautiful BoyOne Sunday, a sister very dear to me runs up to me and tells me about a book she just finished reading that was heart wrenching. Now, my heart gets wrenched quite often as thanks to almost 20 years in CR, my empathy skills are well honed. She emphasized that once she had started reading the book she was virtually unable to put it down, completing it in one weekend.

It is hard to hear this and not have my curiosity piqued so she gratiously loaned me the book to read. She was right. It is a very hard book both to read and to put down.

I Don't Want To Talk About It - Terrence Real
Book review for I DonHaving been a disciple for 21 years and in recovery for almost all of those years, I was now seeing myself being totally overcome with anger and rage. "Losing my Religion" with my wife and children was becoming a daily event. I was constantly feeling a black cloud of rage and confusion hanging over me. I was reading and praying every day and never missing a service. What was it that God wanted me to see?

One day coming home from work I went into a book store to find a book on Church History. To get to the religion section, I had to walk past the self-help books. The name of this book caught my eye. How many times had my wife told me that I never wanted to open up and have deep talks. I bought this book instead of the one on Church History as I was hoping this could give me some answers.
