Scatterday Bonus Book Review: Blind Hope

by Charissa Howe
February 12, 2011

This book actually arrived in the mail yesterday when I was feeling really sick and run down. I'm still feeling sick and run down, but on the mend more after the first round of antibiotics. Anyway, it's definitely a fast read, as I received it... [Read on]

Mere Churchianity - Michael Spencer

Mere Churchianity

by Charissa Howe
March 2, 2011

Mere Churchianity by Michael Spencer I will start off by saying that I am not the target audience for this book. Spencer's book is geared toward those who left or avoided the church because of the image it projects in today's culture: those... [Read on]

by Charissa Howe
March 8, 2011

I am so happy to have taken the time to read Churched: One Kid's Journey Toward God Despite a Holy Mess. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first picked it up, but was very pleased with what I found when I opened it. Turner has taken a humorous... [Read on]

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day - Mark Batterson

Wrestling Your Lions

by Charissa Howe
April 27, 2011

In a Pit starts off by quoting 2 Samuel 23:20-21. It's not the most well known of verses as it's a short little story that doesn't really seem to have much weight or trajectory as is. It tells of Benaiah who chases down a lion in the snow and... [Read on]

A Refreshingly Different Kind of Marriage Book

by Charissa Howe

This Little Prayer of Mine is a gem of a kids' book! I was thrilled when I opened it up and found it to be a Christian kids' book that had such substance and depth. This is not your everyday collection of watery kids' prayers. DeStefano leads... [Read on]

by Charissa Howe
June 28, 2011

To be perfectly honest. . . this book cracked me up. Seriously. It was enjoyable in the same way Churched was. It took no time at all to read and I loved every fleeting moment of it. Phil Callaway is a humor author who has other titles,... [Read on]
