The Most Misused Verses in the Bible [Book Review]


I always hear people quoting Bible verses and know that many times they are either not in the Bible or they are misquoted. In fact you can find many articles on this subject. One thing I had not though a lot about is what Eric J. Bargerhuff writes about in his book, The Most Misused Verses in the Bible: Surprising Ways God's Word Is Misunderstood. This is a great journey through 17 of the most commonly misused verses in the Bible and Bargerhuff's explanations and arguments for why these verses are misused are easy to understand and follow.

This book is not meant to be a theological break-through that will change the world but rather a simple explanation into how to properly interpret the Bible and apply its meaning to our lives. Without properly understanding the context of these verses, we can fall into misrepresentation of the Bible and our witness and understanding of God's Word is hurt. Reading this book has helped me better understand how to put into context the verses that I am reading and then to look at them with news eyes so that I can properly apply them to my life and learn how they are applicable to my life.

This is a very good book that is easy to read and understand. New Christians or those who would like to have a new perspective on how to read the Bible should give this a try. It will help you understand the context of these 17 verses better and give you insight on how to begin putting what you are reading into context so that you can properly apply it to your life.

God on the Streets of Gotham [Book Review]



I love comics and the heroes (or villains, at times) that grace those pages. I love fantasy and seeing a whole new world brought into creation symbolically representing our everyday life. It allows you to look at yourself and the world around you in a slightly different way that helps you to understand the interactions that take place between yourself and everything else. Batman is no different as his story of fear, pain, failure, love, redemption, and so many more human characteristics takes us on a journey to discover our own paths in life. With the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, coming out I felt this was the perfect opportunity to review God on the Streets of Gotham: What the Big Screen Batman Can Teach Us about God and Ourselves by Paul Asay.

Love, Sex, and Happily Ever After [Book Review]


In a society where marriage is no longer as sacred as it once was, it is hard to know what to expect or how to get through marriage and partake of this holy matrimony to the fullest extent. In Craig Groeschel's book - Love, Sex, and Happily Ever After - the principles of a healthy beginning to marriage are laid out to help you be prepared for your future spouse. Although this book focuses strongly on preparing for marriage instead of those who are already married, it is very practical and can be applied to those who are single, dating, engaged, or married (even those married a long time). The guidelines found in this book will help you be prepared on how to treat your spouse and how to make the most of your marriage to each other by laying the strongest foundation you can - on God and His Word.

Quiet [Book Review]


Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain is a great book that helps to show the power of introversion and how those of us who are introverts can excel. This is a book that should be read by everyone, including extroverts, so that the workings of an introvert can be seen and more respect and understanding given. In a world where the extrovert rules, it is hard to see how someone listening instead of talking can be of any importance but we find example after example of how many of the most pivotal inventions and ideas of our time were done by introverts.
