      Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

      Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

        • A collection of essay,s about the history and origin of the King James Bible

          This 164 page book "King James and it,s translators"by Laurance Vance is actually a collection of essay,s by different people some not seen in print before.
          There are 15 chapters as follows:
          1.King James and the throne of England
          2.The Hampton court conference
          3.The learned men
          4.The King James Translators at work
          5.The 1611 King James Bible
          6.Editions of the Authorized Version.
          7.Chapters,verses,words
          8.Purified 7 times
          9.Was the King James Version authorized ?
          10.The origin of King James Onlyism
          11.King James onlyism in Scotland
          12.A standard Bible
          13.The authorized version and the "originals"
          14.Word changes in the King James Bible
          15.Archaic words and the authorized version.

          This book is of a reasonable type size,well spaced andclear to read.It is however intricate and very complete in its coverage of what the King James Bible is and is not.It is not a pro King James book as much as it sounds,its simply a book about the King James Bible.If you want to know about the translators,where they met,their notes and want a complete history of the King James Bible origin in a small concise book this is for you. To me --some of it was dry,giving the ancestry of King James,and other places.

          There is also a complete Biblography in the back that is very detailed.

          One point that was not given I feel I must add to this book is the fact that the some Christians reject the King James Bible as the perfect word of God because they do not want an ultimate authority ruling over their lives.For example if the NIV was suddenly pronounced as the perfect word of God there would be many rejectors of that version as well simply because if there is no perfect version,then people can feel free to do what they want because there is no ultimate authority in all faith and practice.

          • Started "Israel at War: Inside the Nuclear Showdown with Iran" by Joel Rosenberg last night. It's a short (100 page) kindle book published Oct 15 (and is only $3). So far I really haven't learned much new but it has some direct conversations between Rosenberg and Netanyahu. I'm enjoying it, and it's got all the information on what's going on in the ME in one little book. Also shows just how crazy and dangerous Iran is.

              It was interesting but not in the way that I thought it might be. Not much about the politics, mostly a detailed account of the life of a Navy Seal and what it was like, training for and being part of that mission, and exactly how it went down, complete with maps and drawings.

                • Wilfred Grenfell bio

                  The bio on Wilfred Grenfell by Janet Benge is a refreshing take on a missionary doctor,s life.He preaches every chance he gets but also gives of himself as a medical doctor in the Labrador region of Canada.
                  This is a more ordinary Christian as opposed to the famous ones and was quite a change of pace to read this great man,s bio.
                  In this bio you read of the humorous story of Grenfell and Moody in which as a man was long praying Moody said to the crowd--"let us sing a song while our brother finishes his prayer"--this event so enamored Wilfred to the cause of Christ,he then totally dedicated his life thereafter.You will read in this book of Wilfred,s despairs and elation's as he endures hardship,despair,shipwreck and the extreme cold on land and on sea.
                  This book is of larger print,easy to read and enjoy--I highly recommend it.

                          • The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare .I'm looking for good books for my son and this is on the Newbery award list. He liked Sign of the Beaver by her. I may have him read this one later when we study ancient Rome.
                            Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

                              have him read "Hatchet", "The Cay" and if he's older than twelve, see if he can tackle "Watership Down"

                                I will check into those. He's almost 10 (4th grade) with a 7th grade reading level. So, he's got a wide range to choose from if they are at his maturity and interest level. The boy in Bronze Bow is 16 I think, but the book is at a 5th grade reading level. So far it seems alright. The boy is more intent on his hatred for Rome than in pretty girls.
