Once in a Blue Moon
If you enjoy a good Christian romantic fiction with a bit of suspense then this is your book. Leanna Ellis did a wonderful job in combining romance, suspense and keeping in line with Christian beliefs.
The romance wasn't too heavy, it was just enough. The suspense was great. I had no idea where she was going with it. And I am usually pretty good in figuring out what is going to happen before it does.
I loved her characters. Bryn, Howard and Sam were wonderful and felt real. Their stories were believable and had you wanting more for them.
This is definitely a page turner and once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down until you have finished reading it.
Chronological Guide to the Bible, Thomas Nelson, Inc.
The Chronological Guide to the Bible has taken the bible and broken it into nine epochs of time. The reader is given a reading guide to use, archeological information to bring the past to life, insight in the lives of individuals and various groups of people. It provides historical information that helps those studying the bible better understand what was happening when a particular book or passage was being written.
The guide has just enough information to stay interesting without overloading a person who has just started to study the bible. The colorful pictures, charts, reading guide, historical background and maps provide a person with a stronger understanding of what was taking place, giving the modern reader a clearer picture of the past. I personally enjoy reading archaeological information that brings the bible to life, so the editors of this guide did a wonderful job by keeping it easy to read and understand.
The fact that this is a guide to the bible and not a substitute is important because it's suppose to help the reader see the biblical truths of the bible while understanding the historical aspect of it. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing more about what was happening as each book of the bible was being written.
