Release Date: March 2016

Publisher: BakerBooks

ISBN: 9780801017131

Genre: Religion / Church History / CLBG

This is a really fun book to get to share with you guys about. I originally got this book for my brother, Kris, because he’s studying to be a pastor and this one of his favorite authors. So, I’m having him help me write this review. Hope you enjoy and thank you for reading.

This book fully explains why it is important for the average person to understand church history and the reformation. Lutzer includes illustrations of historical figures such as John Wycliffe, Johann Hus, and Martin Luther who brought about different revolutions from the Catholic Church.

Release Date: April 5, 2016

Publisher: Bethany House

ISBN: 9780764213083

Genre: Fiction / Romance

Series: Walker Family, Book 2

Oh my word! Where do I even begin to describe this book of pure awesomeness? Melissa captures the reader’s attention from the very first page through an exchange of emails. It’s rare when the first page captures a reader these days so that’s saying a lot! In fact, readers will be flying through these pages as if there was no tomorrow.

Like Never Before is book two of the Walker family series, but it can easily be read a stand-alone without being confused. It’s obvious that Melissa poured her whole heart into this novel. It’s intriguing, witty, thought-provoking, and sometimes quite serious provided the perfect backdrop. Wisdom is found throughout the pages.

Have you ever picked up the second book within a series to find that it is really confusing if you haven’t read the previous book prior? You won’t have to worry about that with Hearts Made Whole. This is definitely a must read!
Jody Hedlund has been on my to-read list for awhile now and I was not disappointed. Hedlund has a way of story-telling that you keep you glued to the pages to find out what is going to happen. My favorite part was watching where each character started in the beginning and how they developed in the end. Many topics brought up were very realistic and relatable and will encourage readers.
