I just received the Read and Share Stories about Jesus from Booksneeze. I was very impressed while I was reading through the stories of Jesus’ life that they were all very well written and also compact. The way this book was made makes it very easy to share the book with a child while you read to them. I love reading to my son and he loves being read to so this book was great! The illustrations in this book are great and very colorful which helps keep the attention of small children. I love that the pages are thick and cannot be torn so my son can touch the book and I don’t have to worry about the pages being torn. I would recommend this book to my friends to get for their children. The length of the stories are great because they aren’t took long that you lose the attention of children but not too short that it’s pointless to even read the story. I will be keeping this book around for all of my future children.
Book Review: Voices of the Faithful January 20, 2011
My book review of Voices of the Faithful. I was very excited to start this daily devotional because it is about the real lives of missionaries and help people see us as normal people. But I was slightly disappointed when I started to read some of the devotionals. These stories lacked biblical application since this was supposed to be a devotional and the stories that were told were very vague and lacking much of how the missionaries were normal people. As a missionary myself, I was hoping that some of these stories would show how these missionaries were normal people before they surrendered for the mission field. These devotionals seemed to be very simple and not really encouraging others to dig deep into the Word of God to find God’s direction for their lives. I don’t think I would suggest this devotional to anyone as a missionary or as a Christian. From my perspective as a missionary I would like people to understand that we are just like other Christians doing God’s will just in another country. As a Christian I would like a daily devotional to encourage deeper study of the scripture and helpful insight into God’s Word. When I read the introduction to the this book I was pretty pumped thinking it was going to be great stories of how missionaries are like other Christians doing God’s will and encouraging verses to help me grow in my daily walk. I’m slightly disappointed because this is a Beth Moore book and all I have ever heard about Beth Moore is that she has great bible studies available. So my rating of this book would be one star out of five. BookSneeze® has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
