Christian Book Giveaway: Jesus, the One and Only

<

bookI wish I had more time to read but these days I don’t have time to do much. I was asked if I would review this book, I would have loved to, but it didn’t fit in my schedule.  After reading the summary of this book I really do wish I had come quite time to read and reflect on the book but I wanted to make sure I posted about it and let one of my readers win a copy.

Jesus, the One and Only by Beth Moore

Summary: Bible teacher Beth Moore invites you to know Christ personally. Watch and listen as He breaks up a funeral by raising the dead, confronts conniving religious leaders of His day, teaches on a Galilean hillside, or walks on the waves and calms the storm. Like a ragtag band of followers two thousand years ago, you will never be the same again after such an up close and personal encounter.

About the Author:

Beth Moore is a best-selling writer, teacher and founder of Living Proof Ministries. Her numerous books and Bible studies, including “A Heart Like His” (B&H Books), “Breaking Free” (B&H Books), “Believing God” (LifeWay Christian Resources), “The Patriarchs” (LifeWay Christian Resources) and “James: Mercy Triumphs” (LifeWay Christian Resources) have been read by women in Beth Moore Bible study groups all over the world. Her Living Proof Live conferences have reached women in all 50 states in the United States.

As I said I think this book would be great to read when you have some quite time to absorb the message and reflect on the details. Would make a great gift for a young adult that is graduation confirmation class or maybe an adult that has just been baptized.  Check out the  book reviews on Amazon. They are so heartwarming to read.

The publisher, Shelton Interactive, is giving one lucky reader the chance to experience this book for themselves. US Residents only, ends 6/28.

The Spy Game by JD Holiday Book Review and #Giveaway

<

The Spy Game Book Cover_edited-1 for posting 9-13-12We are a huge book family. Reading at bed time is a must for us. Having a variety of different books helps keep bed time exciting. I was thrilled to get the chance to review The Spy Game. I have been watching the TV show, Burn Notice, and Cooper calls it my spy show. So this helped relate to the book.

About the Book

Eddie would love to have a puppy to play with. A puppy would pull on a rope. Catch a ball and lick your face. But his Uncle brings Eddie an older dog named after a famous spy. What can you do with an old dog? It probably couldn’t learn new tricks and the only thing this dog did was stare. It’s what they find to do together that makes them the best of friends.

My Review

This book is full of color and characters your kids can relate to. That is very important in a children’s book. The one downside of this book is I felt I had to add a few words to help with explanation a bit more. I knew what JD was trying to say but a five year old want’s sure. We have read the book several more time since we received it. Now Cooper adds his own version of “spy” to the book from what he has seen from TV or learned from his friends.
