Quality not Quantity

I have a confession to make. Every year I set myself a reading goal on Goodreads, I find it helpful and it also helps me track what I’ve read in a year. I also start off a thread on twitter that normally does after a few months because I forget about it. So, here’s the confession… I will not reach my reading goal this year. In fact, I’ll miss it by miles! And here’s why I’m ok with that…

Digital Dominion

Do you take control of your digital devices? If you’re like most of the world, then probably not. There are tons of Christian books out there on the digital world, some of them are really good, others are just ok. But most of them take a negative approach to technology, the thing I like about this short book is that the authors takes a positive, but cautious approach to technology. Let me explain…

Wishlist, facts, Seek and Find…

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year for many people. It can be a time of joy and a time spent with family members and loved ones. Many people still celebrate Christmas for the right reason, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. I have already done a Christmas review pile, but here is another one for you. Below are some books that will help different kinds of people see the real reason and hope of Christmas, for the smallest children, to whole families and for the non-Christian friends or family member too. Let’s start with the wee ones…

Into His Presence

Over the last few years I’ve benefited massively from reading the prayers of the Puritans. Godly men who penned prayers that are full of awe of God. Prayers that are full of rich theology and that give words to your own heart as you cry out to God in praise, in repentance, in dependance and in request that He would work in you. One of my favourite books, that I still use regularly is, Valley of Vision by Banner of Truth. So when I saw that Tim Chester has produced a similar book I was itching to get it!

It’s that time of the year (nearly)…

As a book reviewer, Christmas is a confusing time of the year, mostly because I start reading Christmas books normally in September. Each year publishers produce different Christmas books to help you think about Christmas. Some books are designed to give away to non-Christian friends and family, others are to help you over advent reflect more on the birth of Christ. I’d like to present four different resources for you, one to giveaway, and three advent readings (one for the whole family).
