I Sold My Soul on eBay - Hemant Mehta

Something for Christians to think about

by Paul Mastin
March 21, 2012

Now here's something you don't see every day. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever seen it: a book by a professed atheist published by a Christian publisher. WaterBrook Press stepped out into some interesting territory by publishing Hemant Mehta's I... [Read on]

When Work and Family Collide - Andy Stanley

Help for the type-A family man

by Paul Mastin
March 13, 2012

I think Andy Stanley is one of those type-A personalities: driven, prone to workaholism, success-oriented, perfectionist. Like most type-As, he's drawn to other type-As. When Work and Family Collide is the first book of his I've read, and he... [Read on]

Dinner with a Perfect Stranger - David Gregory

Clever and engaging introduction to the gospel

by Paul Mastin
March 4, 2012

On the heels of reading The Shack, in which a man struggling with his faith gets a written invitation to meet with God, I picked up David Gregory's Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering. In spite of the similar set-up... [Read on]

God Gave Us Love - Lisa Tawn Bergren; illustrated by Laura J. Bryant

A sweet and lovely little board book

by Paul Mastin
February 28, 2012

There are lots of kinds of love: the love Mama and Papa share, the love we have for Grampa, the love we have for pesky otters and pesky baby brothers and sisters, and, most of all the love God has for us, and we have for God. In God Gave Us... [Read on]

The Last Christian - David Gregory

Prophetic and suspenseful

by Paul Mastin
February 20, 2012

David Gregory's The Last Christian was another pleasant surprise: a Christian novel that is not cheesy, not preachy, but well-written and explicitly Christian. Gregory paints a convincing picture of the not-too-distant future, while weaving a... [Read on]

Fun fantasy for the young ladies

by Paul Mastin
February 17, 2012

Every now and then, I pick up a book out of my usual genre range. I am a sci-fi fan, but never have been much into fantasy. Karyn Henley's Breath of Angel, book one of her Angelaeon Circle, will appeal to readers of fantasy fiction, especially... [Read on]

A treat with a message, like a fortune cookie

by Paul Mastin

What a refreshingly entertaining novel! The God Cookie is a delightful read, with a bit of inspiration thrown in. When Parrish, a twenty-something coffee shop owner, decides to tell God he's "all in" for obeying him, he's not sure how to... [Read on]

Man Alive - Patrick Morley

Good starting points, not much else. . . .

by Paul Mastin
February 1, 2012

I had not read anything by Patrick Morley before, although his book The Man in the Mirror has sold millions of copies and has served as the inspiration for men's groups and discipleship ministries around the world. Morley has a great reputation... [Read on]
