Grand Canyon: A Different View

One book from our library that I have really enjoyed is Grand Canyon: a Different View. This is a nonfiction book looking at the Grand Canyon through the eyes of Creationism. The photography is beautiful and it is worth a look just for that. But, the Biblical references and creationist explanations are clear and compelling. A great book!

Paul by Walter Wangerin

This book is a novel, but is based on the life of the apostle Paul viewed through the eyes of other people. It begins with the voice of Priscilla, a believer mentioned several times in the New Testament. She and her husband Aquila have just been kicked out of Rome and have yet to meet Paul.
I read this book many years ago and do not remember many details. But I do remember how absorbed I was with the book and how enriching it was for me. I recommend this book and, now that I have found it again, plan on reading it again this summer. Enjoy!

From the best-selling author of Monster, comes another outstanding work of Christian fiction, Frank Peretti’s The Oath.

It is only when hidden secrets of Hyde River’s past are exposed that the true danger of the evil lurking there is revealed.

Out of a wild and stormy night, came a disturbing visitor to the Murray household and beckoned Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend, Calvin to come with him on a dangerous and extraordinary voyage. It’s a perilous adventure that threatens their lives and the very universe we live in.
And then there is the issue of the tesseract or a “wrinkle in time”. But wait a minute, to tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Madeleine L’Engle’s most unusual adventure, A Wrinkle in Time.

The unknown Christian author also authored the book "How to Live the Victorious Christian Life".
The Kneeling Christian truly shows how prevailing in prayer touches God's heart and leads to dynamic, effective results. A great prayer warrior is developed, not by an instant choice; but, through patterns and habits that are disciplined and developed over time. It truly is a lifestyle and God's says the effectual fervent prayers of Christians touch God's heart.

This is not a feel good fluff book. It is one that leads you to scripture to ensure your peace, joy, and happiness are rooting in scripture and healthy, lasting purpose. The hope we have in heaven and in the triune natures of God help us to forgive and love both ourselves and others through prayer and a deeper scriptural understanding of purpose, peace, and fulfillment. Deeper read than you might think; but, deep thinking leads to change and ultimate happiness.

This book is a circular tale. It begins with a mouse wanting a cookie and as he receives the item, he wants something different. The story ends with us back at the beginning of the story with the mouse wanting a cookie again. This is a fun story and helps children predict what is going to be said.
