Anniversary Week: My Book Reviews & Free Giveaway

I love to read. I stated on Sunday that one of the main reasons I wanted to have a blog was to post reviews of the books I read. I do this for two different reasons. First, I want to be able to think through the book. Writing a short review of the book helps me grasp and understand and remember the book that I just read. The second reason I like doing this is that I want to help you. I want to be able to recommend good books and warn you if books are bad. I hope that has been helpful.

This past year, I reviewed 32 books. I anticipate at least that many the rest of the year. Below is an alphabetical list of the books I have reviewed on my site. As I always have said, if there is some book that you would like to see me review, just contact me (email) and I will see if I can get to it.

Here is what I wanted to do to celebrate my 1 year anniversary. I wanted to do a special giveaway. Here is what I am offering. The details of the giveaway are found at the bottom of blog post. But the summary is that I will give away 1 book of your choice (from any that I have reviewed on my site) to 3 different people. So, there will be 3 winners. Just follow the details below to sign up. The contest will run until Friday at noon. (So that you know, I am using a new software to run this giveaway, so I am hoping it runs smooth. I guess we will find out soon, huh?)

The Book Reviews:

In addition to these, please check out my list of top 31 books that have impacted me in my life and ministry: The Books!

Come Join The Giveaway Today!


  1. Hmmm...several good books...I think "Unbroken" sounds interesting!

  2. I would have to say that I am interested in "Young, Restless, Reformed".

  3. Thanks for the contest. Your generousity is appreciated. I am not sure what I would like to read yet, but "A Passionate Plea for Preaching" or "Tap" or the biography of "Spurgeon" all sound interesting.

  4. Just got the book "Unbroken." Sounds very interesting and look forward to reading. Would like for you to review the book "The Stoning of Sally Kern." This is the story of a congress woman who stands by her Biblical principles against a very poltically charged issue.

  5. With a 2 sons and a daughter, I'm thinking "Secure Daughters, Confident Sons" looks like a good one to start with!

    Julie Fuller

  6. With all the J Mac controversy I gotta read the "Young, Restless, and Reformed"

    Kyle Ostergren

  7. I haven't read anything by by Tullian Tchividjian ad I really want to read Surprised by Grace. I'm also interested in "Young, Restless, and Reformed."

  8. I think I'd have to go with Tullian's book, "Surprised by Grace"
