Have you ever picked up a book and, as you read it, realized it was such a timely message for your life right at this moment? “Invitations to Abundance: How the Feasts of the Bible Nourish Us Today” by Alicia J. Akins was just such a book for me, because the concept of biblical feasting has been a recurring theme in my life for the last several months. None of the other resources I’ve read on the topic have been as deep and all-inclusive as this title though, and I am so thankful I was able to dive into this new release from Harvest House Publishers.

In the past few years, my family has been led to do a great deal of research, reading, and learning about Bible prophecy and the future, specifically the End Times. As to be expected, as we learn and study from various sources about this topic, many questions arise. That is why a book such as Charles H. Dyer’s new release from Moody Publishers is so helpful and relevant… Continue reading
“How God Loves Us: 40 Days to Discovering His Character in the Fruit of the Spirit” is a new book from Moody Publishers written by Jessica Thompson. This special little volume initially drew my attention because it takes such a unique approach to the Fruits of the Spirit as defined in the book of Galatians. Why? Because with Jessica as our guide, we step into the truth that it is because God loves us in these ways – joyfully, peacefully, patiently, kindly, with goodness, faithfully, gently, and with self-control – that we can love others in this way too.

I truly cannot think of a better way to start off the new year than by reading “Spiritual Intelligence: The Art of Thinking Like God”, a challenging and life-changing new book written by pastor and best-selling author Kris Vallotton. In this book, Kris utilizes solid Biblical teachings to unpack a simple question: “What does it mean to think like God, to have the mind of Christ?” Have you ever considered the answer to this question for yourself? Written in a warm and engaging style, this book overflows with profound teachings as well as practical applications to begin using SQ, or spiritual intelligence, in our daily lives. The results, as you will see, are nothing short of extraordinary. Continue reading
Erica Wiggenhorn has a special gift for bringing characters from the Bible to life, and making their stories, struggles, and strivings become relatable to our own lives. Her new book from Moody Publishers, “Letting God Be Enough: Why Striving Keeps You Stuck And How Surrender Sets You Free” is a bit of a deviation from the last three Bible studies she’s written; instead this book is written in a basic 16-chapter format. At the end of each chapter is a section to help us pause and reflect, apply, and pray about the content we just read. Continue reading
Have you ever had a book arrive in your life unexpectedly – maybe you’ve never heard of it before, or never read anything by that author – and yet it was exactly the book you needed right at that moment in time? This was the case for me with a new book by Sally Clarkson, entitled “HELP, I’m Drowning: Weathering the Storms of Life with Grace and Hope”. When I first saw this title, little did I know that by the time it arrived in my mailbox our family would be facing a huge health crisis, and our entire lives would be turned upside down in the space of a few weeks. And yet, of course, God knew… Continue reading
Whenever a new title in the Moody Bible Studies for Women series releases, it immediately goes to the very top of my reading list. The latest addition is “The Extraordinary Power of Praise: A 6-Week Study of the Psalms for the Anxious Heart” by Becky Harling. Doesn’t this sound like a book we could all use about now? Continue reading
“What If Jesus Was Serious About Prayer? A Visual Guide to the Spiritual Practice Most of Us Get Wrong” by Skye Jethani definitely has a title that captures your attention, doesn’t it? Published by Moody in the summer of 2021, this compact little book is overflowing with thought-provoking “If Jesus was serious” statements, followed by a deeper look into the ripple effect of taking that statement to heart. Continue reading
I have been following Paul Angone’s writing journey for many years now. I have always found him to be a very wise, relatable author who somehow manages to take concepts about young adulthood that are so real, but often misunderstand, and transform them into lessons about life and living that we all need to learn sooner than later.
So, that is why I knew I needed to read his newest book from BakerBooks, entitled “25 Lies Twenty-Somethings Need To Stop Believing: How To Get Unstuck And Own Your Defining Decade”.
If you enjoy any type of art, whether it be visual arts, music, film, writing, or anything else, “75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know: The Fascinating Stories Behind Great Works of Art, Literature, Music and Film” by Terry Glaspey is a must-have book for your shelf!
From the outside, this book has the appearance of textbook. And in some ways, it is something of a textbook, as it is filled with information to enrich your knowledge and understanding of 75 examples from many different kinds of arts.
