Jenna Lucado Bishop – Love Is…

Now that I’ve finished this book, I have mixed thoughts. It was supposed to be read as a six week bible study, but I read it as a more intense read in just two days, so it may be partly… Continue Reading →

C.S. Lewis – The Problem of Pain

For centuries people have been tormented by one question above all: If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain? This is the question that C.S. Lewis is attempting to answer in this book,… Continue Reading →

Jonathan Falwell – 1000 Days: The Ministry of Christ

I’m in two minds on this book. On one hand, I feel like when I was reading it, I did find myself nodding in agreement with things that were said. But on the other hand, I started reading this book… Continue Reading →

Paul Williams & Barry Cooper – If You Could Ask God One Question

I’ve had this book on my Amazon wishlist for ages, and my lovely sister bought it for me for Christmas. It’s something that I’ve been asked a few times this year on the various courses I’ve done at Church –… Continue Reading →

Raechel Myers & Amanda Bible Williams – She Reads Truth

The anticipation for this book was immense. I heard about the book when it was first announced on the She Reads Truth website, I eventually got around to pre-ordering it a month before it came out, but Amazon made me… Continue Reading →

Steve Ross – Marked

I recently went on our Church Parish Weekend, and had the pleasure of helping out with one of the youth groups for the weekend. One of the resources given to each of the children during the weekend was a copy… Continue Reading →

C.S. Lewis – The Great Divorce

I don’t think I’ll ever fail to be amazed by the imagination of C.S. Lewis. The ideas that he has and the way that he approaches them are simply genius. I took this book with me on our recent Church… Continue Reading →

Confirmation and First Communion

Today was my confirmation at Church. Since coming back into my faith last year and starting attending Pudsey Parish Church, I’ve done lots of things that have made my life so much better, I’ve started going to a weekly Cell… Continue Reading →

Review: A. J. Jacobs – The Year of Living Biblically

I decided to read this book as a bit of an impulse. When I joined the library, I was looking around to see what kind of books they had, and I took a look at their religious section. This one… Continue Reading →

Review: Michael Mayne – A Year Lost and Found

Sometimes, a book comes into your life at just the right time, and this was so perfectly timed it’s untrue. I only picked it up by a random choice when I was browsing the religion section at the library. It… Continue Reading →

Review: C.S. Lewis – Mere Christianity

Like I said in my last post, I didn’t really know what to expect with this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. I’d only ever heard of the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis, so I didn’t know he’d written anything… Continue Reading →

Lent Reading: Rick Warren – The Purpose Driven Life & John Piper – The Passion of Jesus Christ

For lent this year (as well as giving up chocolate again), I’ve decided to re-read two books that I’ve read and loved in the past. The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. This book is handily split into 40 sections/days… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Rob Lacey – The Liberator

I’ve read this book a few times in the past (as you can probably tell from the tatty edges of the cover), and it’s one of my favourites. I’ve not read it for a while, and I found myself really… Continue Reading →
