Two Yellow Cabooses

I am not always sure what to expect when I read a book by an author I am not familiar with, but I got a great story out of reading Two Yellow Cabooses. Mickey Tucker has it rough in life and school. However, he finds help, and a friend, in Abe Loomis. Through his guidance, […]

Pastoring Small Towns

Small churches can get left out when training new pastors is done. Sometimes, it is because people don’t realize how different a small town can be from a larger town or city. Ronnie Martin and Donnie Griggs have done a great job of drawing out how being a pastor in these often rural areas stands […]

Dictionary of Paul and His Letters

Paul wrote a large chunk of the New Testament and his letters are frequently used for Bible studies. Though this is a revision of a previously released book, I did not know that this book existed. A collection of information about Paul’s letters would be handy to have for anyone that leads any type of […]

Writing for Impact

There are many different ideas about how to write well, but most seem to focus on the grammar and structure of the writing. While important, that is not going to get readers to stay engaged.

Social media is no different, but it can be much […]

Principles of Logo Design

As a graphic designer, I find logos to be one of the more challenging aspects of my work. Finding the balance between simplicity, meaning, easy to remember, and other factors is not always an easy task. When I saw this book, I knew that it would be a good read. In it, there is plenty […]

The Titus Ten

God gave men the role of protecting and providing; they are leaders. The meaning of godly leadership has been skewed over the years and we need to return to it. The Titus Ten lays out how men are called to live. Using the book of Titus, J. Josh Smith presents simple ways that men can […]

Adventuring Through the Bible

The updated version of Ray C. Stedman’s guide holds much information that is helpful to those of us that are far removed by time and distance from the periods in the Bible. There are timelines, pictures, breakdowns of both books and events, and so much more that can help you better understand what happened in […]

Negativity seems to be at the forefront. News headlines focus on the bad things that have happened, social media posts highlight what went wrong or who did wrong, and people in general can be heard to criticize people and things around them. Is this how is is supposed to be? If not, what should we […]
