So Much Life Is Held Within These Pages

What a beautiful, unexpected, ‘overflowing’ book this was!  What do I mean by overflowing?  Well, there was just so much story, emotion, and ‘living’ held within the pages of this story, that it truly seems to overflow with it all – in the best way possible…. “By Way of the Moonlight” was written by the amazingly talented Elizabeth Musser and published by Bethany House.  It is the second book I’ve read by this author, and it cements my opinion that she is unparalleled in her craft as a writer of emotional, multi-layered fiction that is not afraid to dive deep into the longings of the human soul.   Continue reading

A Must-Read For So Many Reasons

It’s no secret, the book of Revelation in the Bible can be intimidating, confusing, and just plain hard to understand….  Unless, of course, you have an experienced guide to lead you through and help you make sense of this ever-so-important final message from God’s Word.  In his new book “Revealing Revelation: How God’s Plans For The Future Can Change Your Life Now”, Amir Tsarfati (along with co-writer Dr. Rick Yohn) takes on this task of being our guide, and fulfills the role admirably.   Continue reading
