My Review

When Jesus was born, His ministry was to tell all about God the Father and the relationships that people have with God.  However, there was no way that Jesus was able to complete that mission. Before Jesus Ascension into Heaven, he commanded the disciples to complete this mission.  This is our great commission.  As HIS disciples. We were all given this command – share.  Share God.  Ray Vander Laan’s Israel’s Mission, Becoming a Kingdom of Priests in a Prodigal World gives us practical ideals and takes us back to the Bible for ways to do this 

This DVD series starts with Sarah and Abraham and, and goes through Israel at Sinai, Jesus Renews the Mission, Seeking the Lost, The Lost Son  In a Far Country, The Seeking Father The Lost Son Returns.  All of these topics and going through each one of these subjects with great detail and great knowledge and Historical facts.  Imagine stepping back in time, and experiencing where Sarah and Abraham lived, and what their ministry had in store for the world during that time frame; Abraham experienced such a deep relationship with God and followed him unconditionally.  In the town where they lived Arad, Sarah and Abraham lived to serve others with everything they had.  They gave everything.  Abraham was so favored and trusted that by giving unconditionally, everything that they had to do God’s work, God provided everything that they needed.

This DVD/Bible Study goes into detail for all of this and so much more While I am reviewing the Bible Study for #Litfuse, I am going to go back and redo the entire study so that I have more time to do lots of the research, and the details as well as being able to soak up such a detail oriented study!

Designed for use with that the World May Know: Israel’s Mission Discovery Guide.

Filmed on location at these biblically significant sites in Israel and Jordan:

-Back to the Father’s House – Negev Desert
-Show Them the Way – Timnah
-Prodigal Sons and Daughters – Qatzrin
-Return from the Far Off Country – Jerash
-Welcome Home – Qatzrin

Like I said, I will be going back to redo the study in detail and to really study it.  I can’t wait actually.

The study proves to be a very insightful, in-depth, study of God’s expectations for us!  What a great way to spend my time!  Studying God’s word, learning more about Him and just soaking in the knowledge that others have researched and brought to you in a DVD/Study!

My Review

A Heart’s Promise (Book #5) picks up with Emmie, Amelia and Sarah all living at the Fort Laramie and getting along with their lives as soon to be moms.

I must say upfront, this is NOT a stand-alone book.

That being said, I loved this installment of the series.  Author, Colleen Coble, takes us on the journey of daily life at the post.

While Emmie is dealing with the struggles of her past, she gets to see glimpses of her future in some different ways.  In doing so her faith deepens and she understands how valued she really is.

It’s like the old cliché “don’t judge a book by its cover”

In the end you find that God’s healing is of course, the things that brings this small, tight-knit Post back to His mercy and Grace.

This part of the series is a clean, safe read.  It moves fast and from the beginning and keeps you interested through this small Novella.

I am going to be very sad to leave these characters with the last part of the series coming soon!

The Advocate – Randy Singer and a Giveaway

 advocate200

This book has many rave reviews.  I mean serious rave reviews I wanted to love the book, and as I did read it, going into it, the first 5 chapters, Part 1, The Student, I loved.  Understood and could follow.  Then, for me, it started getting difficult for me to understand and I’m not sure if it was difficult, or I just didn’t like the book.    I am very ADD and when I read the book, I was thoroughly confused.  What irks me about all of this, is even though this is a fictional book about an advocate who his first trial,

Altered the course of history and his last, will change the fate of an empire. (Direct quote from the back cover)

Okay about the book.  I made it to chapter 25 before I just couldn’t understand anymore about where I was in the story, or who the majority of the players were.

Now I got to the part where Christ was presented before Pilate after his night of being found guilty by Herod.

For me, I was not going to finish the book and knew this after about 5 chapters.  I tried to go further into the book but just couldn’t.  However, please do NOT let this deter you from the book.  Regardless of my review, for a normal reader that loves Christian Historical Fiction, this book should be a great read.  One that touches your heart and one that just draws you in from the get-go.

Had I had a map, something in writing with the characters and how they’re related (there was a list in the front of the book, for me it wasn’t enough.  Enjoy this book, know that it has huge responses and has extreme rave reviews.

The author has a study guide and a 4 week course on his website.

Book Description

Since I can’t review the book, here is the description of the book and the details

Follow what law and legal representation was like in biblical times with Randy Singer’s Christian historical fiction Advocate: He Defied an Empire & Inspired a Faith.

At the trial of Christ, Theophilus, brilliant young “assessore” raised in the Roman aristocracy, stands behind Pontius Pilate and whispers, “Offer to release Barabbas.” The strategy backfires, and Theophilus never forgets the sight of an innocent man unjustly suffering the worst of all possible deaths–Roman crucifixion.

Three decades later, Theophilus has proven himself in the legal ranks of the Roman Empire. He has survived the insane rule of Caligula and has weathered the cruel tyrant’s quest to control the woman he loves. He has endured the mindless violence of the gladiator games and the backstabbing intrigue of the treason trials.

Now he must face another evil Caesar, defending the man Paul in Nero’s deranged court. Can Theophilus mount a defense that will keep another innocent man from execution? The advocate’s first trial altered the course of history. His last will change the fate of an empire.
