Book Review: Eating with the King

Eating with the King
Eating with the King by Terri Rockwell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so impressed with this little book, especially because every page quotes Scripture! There are so many positive messages of encouragement in this book. Instead of making people feel guilty about their cravings, and their eating habits, or how their body looks, this book offers healing, positive attitudes, triumphant freedom, and constantly points the reader to Christ.

I think this book could apply to any craving or addiction, not just eating food. The messages in this book would help with anything that draws us away from God, forms a bad habit, or entices us to harm our health in some way. Continue reading

Review: The One Year at His Feet Devotional

The One Year at His Feet Devotional
The One Year at His Feet Devotional by Chris Tiegreen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has one page entry for each day of the year, but it took me two years to read it! haha!
I loved how insightful and deep each devotional page is despite being short. There’s a lot of spiritual information packed concisely into each page.

I liked that there is a quote from a famous Christian, apologist, missionary, saint, or preacher on each page that corespondents with the subject of the day.

Each paragraph really makes you think and reevaluate your beliefs, and at the end of each topic there is a call to apply the lesson to your life in a real and tangible way through prayer and action.

A wonderful devotional for those who don’t want spiritual “fluff”, but are ready for the “meat” of the Word!

Book Review: Living as a Christian: Teachings from First Peter

Living as a Christian: Teachings from First Peter
Living as a Christian: Teachings from First Peter by A.W. Tozer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tozer goes through most of the verses in 1 Peter, giving an overall view of what it means to be a Christian: what the true Christian believes, how the true Christian acts, and how the true Christian lives in a fallen world.

I found some of the writing to be wonderfully deep and insightful, but other parts were almost childish in their simplicity. There’s also a lot of repetition of the same ideas, same words, over again, and that got on my nerves.

The content is excellent with strong doctrine, but the writing is flabby and could use more editing. Continue reading

Book Review: The Peter Potential

The Peter Potential: Discover the Life You Were Meant to Live
The Peter Potential: Discover the Life You Were Meant to Live by Emily Freeman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this beautiful little devotion book! Focusing on the life of Peter and his most defining moments with Christ, this book paints an inspiring picture of what is possible in our Christian lives when we accept an invitation from the Lord.
Christ invited Peter to launch out into the deep and trust Him for the resulting fishing success. Christ invited Peter to walk on water, to feed 5,000 hungry people by giving the little he had, and to pray all night in the garden.
This book shows how God is always inviting us to a deeper relationship with Him, to realize our full potential in Him, and encourages and inspires the reader to accept those invitations from God.

The illustrations, photos, and layout of the book are delightful, and really make an impact as you read. This would make a perfect little gift book for anyone in any place in their Christian walk!
