My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Not being a baseball fan, I came into this novella a little clueless. I still don’t really understand baseball, but you don’t have to enjoy the sport to enjoy this story!

Wow! I read the first of this series back in the summer, and once I finished it, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next one! (Though that first one was a bit of a heartbreaker … be sure to read these in the order they come. That is of the utmost importance.) But wow – what a great continuance of the first in the series!

Review of It’s Called Grace by Virginia Henderson

This was such a sweet, relaxing book. Don’t get me wrong – I love high-stakes drama and intrigue and intensity, but sometimes it’s nice just to read something that’s more everyday life. Even though there wasn’t much action, the character development and interactions kept me turning the pages.

Mini-review of The Intercession of Christ: Christ, A Complete Saviour by John Bunyan + Select Quotes

The Intercession of Christ: Christ, a Complete Saviour by John Bunyan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


4.5 stars

Bunyan’s commentary on Christ’s intercession for His children explored a glorious facet of the Savior I had never thought about in-depth. However, truly understanding Christ as Advocate on your behalf will bring about a wealth of peace and comfort. Bunyan goes into great detail, speaking to believers and unbelievers and explaining why every person needs Christ to intercede for them. While some parts of this book were quite thick and difficult to understand, there are many gems in here that speak to Christ’s nature. One of my favorites was on Hebrews 7:25: “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Bunyan explains how Jesus is willing to save, and He is also more than able to save – save to the uttermost – all who come to Him! I would recommend this book to any Christian – for we all need to know the benefits of Jesus, our complete Savior.

Review of Held Captive by Grace A. Johnson

Held Captive by Grace A. Johnson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ah, this was such a fun read! Rina kept cracking me up – I really lost it when she pulled out the bottle of rum like any good pirate and took a couple (or maybe more) swigs. She was truly a memorable character in so many ways! She was not this small, delicate woman like most Christian fiction heroines are. Nope, this girl was a pirate through and through! She was definitely my favorite character, but Xavier was also a good character opposite of her. His sense of humor won him some points there, and he was the type of guy to get along well with Rina. Not everyone can fall in love with a lady pirate, mind you – those are special sorts.
