The Necessity of an Enemy by Ron Carpenter Jr.

This book is right up my alley. Discusses issues such as depression and bad thinking which are enemies from within. The author discusses these issues but oh so much more. If you’ve ever felt attacked by the enemy and have been left feeling confused and defenseless (and who of us Christians out there have not?) then this book is for you. “ To fulfill your purpose and stay true to your calling, you need to understand the reason for your enemies. If you do so, when they rise up against you, you will know how to battle back and see your enemies from God’s point of view.” Need I say more? Recommend this for Christians who want to know how to fight back, learn and grow from the “attacks.”

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group. I was not required to write a favorable review.

The Coming Revolution: Signs from America's Past That Signal Our Nation's Future by Richard Lee

I have to be honest. I have never been much of a history buff nor have I ever been one to get into politics. This book may just have changed this in my life!
The title caught my attention as last year during my time with the Lord He told me there was going to be a Revolution. I have thought He meant in my city! Indeed I have seen some changes in my city but now that I have read this book I find it means more then in just my city and has it yet even begun? The book will fire you up to stand up for what is right and even tells you can do in the last chapter. It speaks about Christians coming together and speaking out and changes being made due to this. A must read for every Christian and non-Christian alike.

I received this book free from the publisher through the Book Sneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. Freely I have been given so freely I give.

Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson

This is one of those types of books where you don’t have to get too far into it to begin to learn and retain things which help you in your walk with God. It seems there is life which you breathe in and it becomes a part of you sort of thing happening. This book has caused me to re-think my life. Am I living my life to be safe and secure? Or am I taking leaps of faith and living dangerously for the Lord! It has caused me to ponder…is this all my life is about? I have known there is something more coming up ahead for me as in my life’s calling which the Lord has created me for…but have I been on the right path in order to get there? Or have I been planning my life myself with what I consider (compared to God’s) having a pea brain. My thoughts are not HIS thoughts and my ways not HIS ways…this book will have you re-thinking your mind sets and desiring to get set straight and back onto the path the Lord has for you. I plan to also read the author’s other book called, “In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day.”
