Christian Fact and Fiction Book Reviews

Updated on April 8, 2016

Dwelling in the Land Bringing same-sex attraction under the lordship of Christ By Jeanette Howard

I was sent a free copy of Dwelling in the Land Bringing same-sex attraction under the lordship of Christ By Jeanette Howard for only my honest and unbiased review. I decide to review this book because I have a research project coming up in one of my classes and I was considering focusing on the debate surrounding same-sex attraction. This book gave me a lot of insight into the same-sex attraction debate and problems. This book was crucial in my decision to find a different topic to research after realizing just how much controversy surrounds same-sex attraction. This book is well organized and it makes it easy to find the information one needs. Overall while I personally found some of this book confusing I did feel that it was well written and that it would be of interest to people struggling with same-sex attraction.

Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa

I was sent Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa for free for only my honest and unbiased review.

I really enjoyed reading Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa. I liked the different perspectives in the book. My favorite was perspective was Annabel's. I also really liked the fact that Annabel was not alone in the bunker, she had a dog companion who came to love her over time. The book had a bit of a supernatural element to it. I won't tell you what the element is as it is the reason Annabel is hiding in the bunker. I would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys book on the supernatural, NCIS, police, CIA, and/or FBI.

Saints and Sailors The Dunbridge Chronicles By Pam Rhodes

I was surprised to find Saints and Sailors The Dunbridge Chronicles By Pam Rhodes to be the fourth book in the series. I did not know that it was not book one, my mistake. I really liked the Who' Who in Dunbridge page. It gave a quick run down of who everyone was in relation to each other. Here are two of the poepl on the page:
Irish Fisher- Reverend Niel Fisher's mother
Val Fellowes-Peter's wife

This page really helped me to keep track of who everyone was, it was very helpful. I found the whole cruise experience aspects of the book to be interesting. I recently took a cruise on the Allure of the Sea and many of the aspects mirrored situations in the book. For instance the way luggage was handles, the cabins, and the safety drill although I did not have to try on a life jacket. I found the book to be an interesting read. Though it is not a book I would read again. The speed of the book was rather slow, I tend to prefer a faster paced book myself.

I was sent Saints and Sailors The Dunbridge Chronicles By Pam Rhodes for free for only a honest review.

The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible Review

As an adult I found that The Lion Comic Book Hero Bible over simplified things to the extreme. In fact in making the comic book I believe they got several things wrong and gave readers the wrong idea. I may be wrong, but I don't remember anything about God creating giants. I also did not like how the book changed the names of key people like Adam and Eve there is no reason that the book could not have still been a comic book bible while still keeping everyone's names correct. I honestly found this book to be horrible I would recommend getting a child's bible not this thing that gets many events wrong, uses wrong names, and make bible events seem like some sort of joke.

A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser

I was sent a free copy of A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser.

A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser begins with a table of contents, acknowledgments, an introduction, and the chapter one. Chapter one opens with an amusing story about the author mistaking a family of foxes for kittens she lived in fear of them until she knew what they were. This example is a great way to explain how people fear what they do not understand. The author continues onward in A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser with a very journal like voice. The author writes as if she is talking directly to the reader. The book also has some mixed in parenting advice like how to make sure you and your child on the same page as far as what words mean and what expectations are. For instance many children don't see studying as homework they see it as studying, yet parents see studying and assigned work both as homework.

I would not say that I enjoyed reading A Woman's Guide to Knowing What You Believe: How to Love God With Your Heart and Your Mind by Patty Houser, but I would say that I found it an interesting read that provided me with new information that I did not know before.

Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson

I was sent a free copy of Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson.

Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson is a fictional romantic comedy. Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson begins with chapter one where the reader meets the main characters and learns about their lives. I have to say that I honestly did not enjoy reading Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson, it was just a little to flowery and perfect with how everything came together. I tend to prefer more drama and some fight in my books. I do not want anyone to think this is a bad book however. The characters are well written, there are no gaping plot holes, or anything like that it was just a bit too perfect for me. I did however enjoy the humor that the author wrote into the book it made me laugh quite a bit. Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson is a good book for any girl looking for some light hearted reading with some laughs mixed in. However if you are looking for a serious story with some action then keep looking.

I was sent a free copy of Called to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Called to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd.

If found Called to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd to be a truly inspiring book. Called to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd has so many different stories about how people's lives were altered and saved because of prayer. It shows that if you feel a need to pray for someone that you should it might just make all the difference. There was one story where a man was planning to commit suicide asked God for a reason to live at the same time a young Indian woman at the airport as God to send someone to help her. The two met the woman was helped and the man felt like he had a reason to live again. This book truly inspires you to the wonders of God I would recommend it to all Christians and those who don't believe as well.
