Book Review: Enjoying God by Tim Chester

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

I doubt this review really does the book justice and so in closing I’d like to say that I found this to be a book that helped me understand more of what it means to commune with God and enjoy Him throughout everyday life. More than that, this is a book that I found changed how I lived – it changed my perspective. I will be returning to this book, giving it to many people and recommending it to even more. And I’ll start that now – I recommend that you read Enjoying God.

Book Review: Notebook for Eternity

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

This is a reprint of Wayne’s earlier self-published work of the same name, and Christian Focus has done a commendable job in producing it.

Before I tell you a little about what I loved in this book, I want to point...

Book Review: What Happens When I Die?

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

Marcus Nodder's superb little book is "must-have" for every household.

Preparing people for death is critical. Pastors are acutely aware of both the responsibility and privilege of this ministry.​

I have read many books, but "What Happens When I Die?" is the best one I've come across on the subject outside of the Bible itself.
