I started reading “Sinners in the hands of a loving God” by Brian Zahd last night and couldn't put it down until I was done. It isn't a very long book but I guarantee it will stay with you.
The book talks about the multiple interpretations of the nature of God. It challenges the common practice of “Conversion by coercion” in the Christian religion. Shocking right? Well Brian Zahd is quite controversial himself, his book makes you question whether or not a God should be wrathful or loving towards those who transgress against divine law. The book intricately unfolds in 10 awe-inspiring chapters. I urge that you open up this book with an open mind and know that it's okay to question your reality.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. All opinions are my own. If you're interested in reading “Sinners in the hands of a loving God” keep an eye out for it starting August 15, 2017.
When reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins be prepared to get sucked in & taken along on a wild ride. The story has multiple point of views including your typical drunk, a cheater & a liar. How their lives intertwine is revealed throughout the novel with the use of dialogue, time sequencing & chapter structure. Hawkins does an amazing job focusing on action & plot movement as she shows us the daily lives of the characters. I found myself constantly flipping back & forth to double check the dates in disbelief. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this novel.
I've met the quackers, have you??
"Meet the Quackers" is a beautiful & bright children's book written by Tania Guarino & illustrated by Shane Crampton.
A special delivery arrives at the barn and is quickly disliked and unwanted by the rest of Farmer Fran's animals, until it's not. At the end of the book the delivery becomes just the right kind of excitement the barn needed.
