Unsinkable Faith by Tracie Miles

About the Book:

Forimage many people, remaining optimistic and feeling positive about themselves and their lives is a constant battle – especially when circumstances are difficult and life is hard.
For others, negativity is something that only sneaks up from time to time, yet still wreaks havoc in their hearts. Regardless of the root causes, once pessimistic thoughts permeate our minds, our feelings and emotions begin to control us instead of us controlling them.

Release Date: February 28, 2017

Publisher: Baker Books

ISBN: 9780801019418

Genre: Non-fiction / Christian Living / Spiritual Growth

If you’re like me, then you’ve probably grown up in the church, read tons of books on grace, heard sermon after sermon about grace, and perhaps even attended Bible college where you’ve heard about it all the time. We’ve heard it so much that sometimes we miss out on experiencing the grace of God or even sharing it with others.

Grace is Greater is not another book on the theology of grace. It’s more about experiencing the grace of God.

Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship

Edited by Charles E. Moore & Timothy Keiderling

Release Date: March 1, 2016

Publisher: Plough Publishing House

ISBN: 9780874867046

Genre: Faith / Witness /Martyrdom

I’m not even sure how to describe this book, except that I think everyone should read it. It really gives the reader to reexamine their faith.

I mean do we even know what persecution really is?

Here in America we tend to feel like we’re facing persecution just for being a Christian. While some of it may true, we still have freedom to follow the Lord. We’re lucky to be able to live in a country that allows us to choose our faith. Many countries outside of North America, especially in Asia and Africa, it’s forbidden to be a Christian. The reality of persecution and suffering is a reality. In fact, we hear about this all of the time!

Release Date: January 19, 2016

Publisher: Bethany House

ISBN: 9780764217272

Genre: DVPR Christian Life/Missions

This is a different kind of book so I’m not entirely sure how to review it. It’s a really neat guide and if you are interested in different countries or want to be a missionary, then I would recommend this for you. Brian C. Stiller shares insights on many countries that we have heard of, such as Kenya, China, and Korea, but also about countries that we never knew existed. For example, have you heard of Moziambique? Chances are you probably haven’t. I know I haven’t.

I Was Blind (Dating), But Now I See:

My Misadventures in Dating, Waiting, and Stumbling Into Love

by Stephanie Rische

Release Date: January 1, 2016

Publisher: Tyndale Momentum

ISBN: 978-1-4964-0481-7

Genre: Christian Life /Relationship Dating

Have you ever felt alone while it seems as if all your friends are getting married and having babies wondering if you’ll ever have that chance? Stephanie Rische completely understands. In fact, she found herself wondering if there was something wrong with her – was she not pretty enough? Not fun enough? Not datable enough? So she turned to God as she began to pray earnestly for God to bring the man she was meant to marry into her life.

Instead, she was given eight matchmakers.

I Was Blind (Dating), but Now I See is a true story about a young woman who tried really hard to find someone she could fall in love with despite the fact that she kept falling flat on her face. Amid the most cringe-worthy and awkward situations, Stephanie’s journey shows how God’s grace and love can meet us in ways we never could have imagined. We just have to open our eyes in order to see it.

It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke

Release Date: October 13, 2015

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

ISBN-10: 1400205417

ISBN-13: 978-1400205417

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Life / Spiritual Growth

The title is perfect when it comes to describing Jefferson Bethke’s book. It’s Not What You Think! Most of us have heard of the Gospel, but how many of us actually understand what it is and what it means? The Gospel is so much more than just a transaction between us and Jesus Christ. Jesus didn’t just die on the Cross so that we can go to heaven when we die.

Bethke guides his readers from the creation of the universe in Genesis to the celebration in Revelation. When we learn to examine the Bible from the beginning, we see a story so much more beautiful and compelling than how many Christians are telling it today. This was definitely my favorite part that he focused on. When it comes to the Bible, we can’t just take bits and pieces that we like. We need both the New and Old Testament because it shows us the whole story.

We live in a world where heartache and discouragement can create hopelessness. But when we find hope, we can overcome whatever it may be that is troubling us. Lee Strobel explains that real hope is so much more than just wishful thinking, blind optimism, or hopeful dreams. Hope is found in Jesus Christ. This hope gives us an overriding confidence, that no matter what comes our way, God is with us and is greater than any challenge that we may go through.
