  • I just started a great book that Firefly suggested: Amy Carmichael - Selfless Servant of India.
    Thanks Firefly! So far I love it and I expect to enjoy it all.

    I just finished the 6th and final book in the Alaskan Courage series by Dani Pettrey. They're Christian fiction "action romance". Easy reading.

    Next on my list is a book by Terri Blackstock called Distortion.

Not only entertaining, but I'm learning about the history of Nova Scotia (AKA Acadia) and the French people who moved from there to Louisiana. The authors also work in great spiritual life's lessons that their characters have learned and share with others, or that they learn along the way.

      I was also looking in Wikipedia about things related to the books and discovered that "Cajun" comes from the name "Acadia." Interesting.



      Waiting for the library to get book #3 in!
      Finished the fifth and last book of the series. It was a wonderful series and I would like to check out some more of Oke's books!

      Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

      • Just finished book #2 in Terri Blackstock's Moonlighting Series called Distortion. #3 is called Twisted Innocence. I had to read through the first two chapters just to see where the last book left off.

        I also ordered two books by Dave Hunt called An Urgent Call to an Urgent Faith. I got two so that my husband and I could read them together. At least I'm praying he'll read it with me. When we're done I'll give them away...one to my dad and another to my sister. I'm hoping they'll read them as well.

          I am about 1/4 through it, and will be updating a thread, in the books and movies area, about it.

          The theology, so far, is Charismatic, which I am not, but provides the motivational engine for the story line. So far, the advice in the book is good advice for any and all of us, no matter what disasters we are, or will be, facing.
          I finally finished this book and I recommend it, despite the use of prophetic dreams to push the storyline along.

          The story is about three friends, two of them are brand new Christians, who discover that the US, as a civilization, is about to be destroyed by an EMP. They make hasty preps while trying to warn others, and when it hits, they make a hasty run for the hills (my expression). If you are interested at all in what may happen after an EMP (a man made phenomenon that will destroy electronic devices for hundreds of miles around a nuclear detonation), this book makes a good companion to the secular book "One Second After."

          • Elements of Prophecy by William Kelly, published 1867 by G. Morrish; Paternoster Square, London.

            Mr. Kelly wrote this book in rebuttal to two Reformed theologians who wrote in 1865/1866 pressing Replacement Theology against Dispensational, Premillennial teaching. The text appears to have some value toward eschatological discussions with those who oppose premillennial doctrines today.

            In the book Mr. Kelly does an excellent job outlining the doctrines of premillennial belief and shows fallacies in the Replacement position. Mr. Kelly was a superb Fundamentalist theologian and perhaps the most prolific author among the original so-called Plymouth Brethren. I truly enjoy Mr. Kelly's writings, but being a nineteenth century Englishman, he could often wax verbose.

            The book I'm reading is an original 1876 edition. I am not aware of any modern reprints. Original editions are quite rare. However, a good quality PDF scan can be freely downloaded at this URL: https://archive.org/details/elementsprophec00kellgoog]

            • The Son of His Love Papers on the Eternal Sonship, by W. J. Hocking, C. A. Hammond, London

              This Christology covers the Biblical texts underlining the Eternal Sonship of our Lord Jesus Christ. Eternal Sonship means the Son always existed in relationship with the Father from eternity. The book was written to refute the unsound teaching of James Taylor Sr., leader of the Exclusive Brethren from 1903 - 1953. Taylor taught that Christ became the Son of God until the Incarnation and denied that Christ was with the Father before then.

              The book has relevance today because the same heresy is held by those holding Oneness Theologies today. It can be read online at: http://www.stempublishing.com/authors/WJ_Hocking/

              • I just finished a Christian Fantasy series called "Books of the Infinite" by R.J. Larson. I'm expanding out from Christian Fiction/Historical Fiction on account of I've read most everything that is easy to get my hands on. I really enjoyed the Infinite Series so soon will start on a 2nd Infinite series from the same author. All three books in this first series were hard for me to put down.

                I'm in the middle of "The Oneness Cycle Series by Rachel Starr Thomson. There are five books in the series. The first two books were pretty good, the 3rd book wasn't as good as the first two... and I've got the last two coming through the library system...

                Meanwhile I've got Warrior's Song by Judith Pella from the library, it's the last book in the Lone Star Legacy series. I enjoyed the first two books very much and expect to enjoy Warrior's Song as well.

                • I recently re-read Larry Burkett's Solar Flare (1997 Northfield Publishing), a fascinating novel about how heavy solar-flare activity could knock out power around the world for several months, affecting also food, water, communication, heating, transportation, etc., resulting also in greatly increased gang activity, property destruction, looting and other crimes.

                  Focusing mainly on the U.S., it addresses how the president, his staff and other influential people deal with the crisis, with many endeavoring to help our citizens and some only interested in self-promotion, even at the expense of many lives.

                  The government relocates millions of citizens into much safer tent camps in the country where farming and rudimentary infrastructure can be set up (and to help protect the people from the gangs). The main relocation action focuses on one camp. This camp sets up water access, farming, schooling, church, Bible studies, legal structure and security. The book also includes scientific aspects, friendships, romance, media machinations and political intrigue.


                  BTW, Larry Burkett worked at NASA for several years, all the more reason to enjoy the scientific aspects of the book. For those interested, the below article also describes this type of solar activity. It focuses on an actual solar superstorm that missed the earth by mere days back in 2012 which could conceivably have caused widespread power outages, damages in the trillions and years-long repairs had the earth been in the direct path of the solar storm: https://science.nasa.gov/science-new...jul_superstorm

                  • God's Inspiration of the Scriptures, William Kelly - published c.1980 by Central Bible Hammond Trust, London; 602 pages

                    Originally serialized monthly in "The Bible Treasury" magazine between 1899 and 1903 it was first published together in book form by T. Weston circa 1904. This was one of William Kelly's last books wherein he presents a short synopsis of each Bible Book in both Testaments showing internal evidence supporting the Divine design of the whole Bible. It's an involved study that seems useful even in this day when science so-called is supposedly said to refute claims of the Divine inspiration of Scripture. The book has been frequently reprinted and is still available from certain dealers in hardcover and paperback. Used copies may be found for a small price. (standard disclaimers).

                      • Our Covenant God by Kay Arthur found it in a thrift store for .38
                        John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fatherís hand. I and the Father are one.

                          • Started "I Exalt You, O God" by Jerry Bridges. It's 31 short chapters to be used as a daily devotional type reading. I am enjoying meditating on the greatness of God. I am soon going to be starting a book with my 5th grader about missionaries to Iran.

                              • Joel Rosenberg's new book, "Without Warning," came out this week, so I got it on kindle yesterday. What a page-turner! Wish I could pass it around on here when I'm done and share with y'all!
