Faith and Trees!!

In the book Reforesting Faith: What Trees Teach us About the Nature of God and His Love for us, by Matthew Sleeth, was a fascinating book.  I really was not sure what to expect when I was asked about reviewing this book.  Matthew Sleeth was an atheist, a man who had no need for God, but ultimately came to faith and his love for nature, especially trees led to this study and book.

Sleeth uncovers the hidden language of trees as we learn more about the nature of trees and their relation to biblical characters and our lives.  He reminds us that the Bible speaks of trees from the first chapter of the Bible to the last chapter of the Bible.  Sleeth explains why the Bible mentions them more than any other creation except people.  He shares his love for trees and their meaning and how that should make a difference in our lives as well.

Overall, this was a very good and interesting book.

I received this book from Waterbrook / Multnomah books in exchange for an honest review.

Christian Devotional!

The devotion, 365 Devotions to Love God and Love Others Well was a very nice devotional.  It is a hard copy with a ribbon to mark your page.  There is a devotion for each day and they are all one page in length, and take about 2-3 minutes to read.

Because the devotionals are short enough, they are a great way to start the day, or even a good way to end the day.

There is a presentation at the beginning of the devotional and a few pages in the back for notes.  It is small enough that it will fit into a purse or bag rather easily.

Overall, it was a very nice devotional and would make a great gift for Mother's day.

Christian Sci-Fi!!

American Omens is a Christian Science Fiction thriller.  It is based in the year 2038, not far from now, but in a very different looking world.  Christianity is a crime.  There is hatred, hiding, sabotage, a secret church and more.  The book is filled with usage of technology, which seemed pretty realistic with all of the progress made in our world. 

I never heard of Travis Thrasher, but he seems an up and comer in the science fiction realm.  If you are into science fiction, especially a Christian sci-fi book, then I highly recommend this book.

Celebrate Friendships

I was intrigued by this book, Better Together: Life is Best with a Friend Like You.  This is a great gift book given from a friend to a friend.  This book is a celebration of friendships which are different.  This is a picture book, with poignant saying on each page as well.

Every two pages contains pictures of two different animals who are together.  The theme is that our differences make us "Better Together."

There are quotes from the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, C.S. Lewis, George Washington, Bono and many more.

This is a hard cover, sturdy book, which would make a great gift from friend to friend.
