Review of Questions about Heaven and Hell

In Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz’s book ‘Answering theToughest Questions about Heaven and Hell’ they begin by discussing what different religions believe about after life. This shows that God has placed in all humans a belief in at least A God and that they are eternal.

They also discuss what science: physics and biology show us about after life.

And that Jesus hated death so much He “killed it”.

Most importantly they discuss seven things the Bible says about death. And that Heaven and Hell are real places. And how often Jesus talked about both places.

After every question is answered, the authors list a few questions for the reader to think about.

I’ve read many books on Heaven and am always interested in learning more. This is a good reference book for Christians – not only for their own information, but to help them answer non-believer’s questions.

Bethany House gave me a copy of this book for my honest review.

Review of Do Baby Bears Have Mommies?

Do Baby Bears Have Mommies? has a list of questions your child might ask on each page with an answer. (I even learned some things!)

The illustrations are charming and both the questions and answers are in the form of rhymes, so fun to read to your children. And I like how it ends with telling the reader that it's God who makes all these unique animals and bugs.

This is the first in a series of Question books the authors are working on which includes the book Does God Take Naps. These would make a fun and educational edition for your kid’s library.

Eye-opening book on prayer

I just finished reading the book 'The Lifestyle of a Watchman - A 21-Day Journey to Becoming a Guardian in Prayer' by James W. Goll

This book was eye-opening. I had no idea there are so many “watchmen” praying 24/7 all over the country.

The author used examples of Biblical characters as well as current folks who pray God’s Word back to Him and explains that’s why the prayers are so effective.

He’s divided the book into 21 days, each chapter not too long, but filled with Bible verses and ending in a wonderful prayer. There are also questions for you to ask yourself to help you really understand and think about what you just read.

This book makes a good prayer resource for your library!

*I received my copy from Chosen books to write an honest review on it.
