Judgment Day - Wanda L. Dyson

Judgment Day: a nice little page-turner

by Paul Mastin
February 24, 2011

Life Without Limits: One inspiring bloke!

by Paul Mastin
April 23, 2011

Last year, a friend of mine won third place in a film competition, The Doorpost Film Project. That was cool, but I thought he should have won first place. (He did earn a job writing and directing a new feature film, Unconditional, scheduled for... [Read on]

Average Joe - Troy Meeder

Written by an above-average Joe

by Paul Mastin
May 9, 2011

The promo for Average Joe caught my eye: "Now we're older, with a wonderful wife and kids, as well as a mortgage, a minivan, and a fulfilling but not-so-glamorous job. What happened? All the dreams that once inspired us have evaporated into... [Read on]

Weakly argued, but challenging

by Paul Mastin

My friend Christina recently returned from a mission trip to Central America, where she and her husband joined a group building simple ovens for families who live as their ancestors have for centuries, cooking over an open pit in their hillside... [Read on]

The Daughter's Walk - Jane Kirkpatrick

More walk, less drama, please

by Paul Mastin
June 21, 2011

I have been taken in by tales of cross-country races, like the "Bunion Derby" of 1928, as told in C.C. Pyle's Amazing Foot Race, and the more recent Trans American foot race, as in David Horton's A Quest for Adventure. More recently, I followed... [Read on]

Primal - Mark Batterson

Looking back for the new Reformation

by Paul Mastin
July 17, 2011

First of all, let me say that I was pleased that Primal is not the book I thought it was going to be. It is not an attempt to find some kind of pure expression of Christian worship, faith, and practice, seeking to replicate the first century... [Read on]

by Paul Mastin
November 10, 2011
