Bringing heaven to earth: a book review

Heaven is such a written about topic in the world of books and a very mysterious topic at the same time.  Do we need another book about Heaven?  Well, this book is much more than heaven.  First, Josh Ross takes us on a journey that is bigger than just a place where we go when we die.  Josh Ross writes about not just heaven, but the Kingdom of God.  The kingdom of God is right now, not in the future.  This book tells us how to live for God now and how he blesses our lives and what our lives are about.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing more about the Kingdom of God and the true meaning of the word heaven.

Searching for Sunday: a book review

Rachael Held Evans is a blogger.  To be honest I never have heard of her until I picked up the book she wrote: Searching for Sunday.
The best part of this book is her authenticity.  She is rough around the edges and I like that because many Christians wear masks and pretend everything is ok when it is not.
This book is her account of her life and journey with God.  She is a struggler and she lets us know.
My favorite chapter was the chapter she talked about the failed church plant she and her husband were a part of.  She talks about failure and i love that because often i feel like a failure and she talks about here life and the disillusionment she experienced with her failure.  and how God's grace and mercy helped her come back to faith in God.
I recommend this book to anyone who struggles in faith or life.  If you are a "perfect" Christian, dont read this book because it will bother you.  But if you are like me, you will love this book.
