Daisy’s Review of the site:

With over 10,000 easily searchable Christian quotes by more than 250 different authors (including Billy Graham, Max Lucado, C.S. Lewis, Dwight L. Moody, Ravi Zacharias, etc.), this is one of the most thorough and beautifully laid out websites dedicated to the subject that I’ve ever seen. Each quote is made into a gorgeous graphic, great for use as an avatar, in a signature line, as a desktop background, as a screen saver, as a meme, to frame and hang on the wall, or printed out on homemade greeting cards. Included among the many quotes you’ll find here are a great number of wonderful Bible verses. I’m so glad I found out about this website; I know that I will be going back to it again, and again, and again! If I was to rate this website on a one to five star scale, I would give it five.

Thank you, ChristianQuotes.info!

There is no blurb available with it, and Amazon states it is out of print and hard to find, but I thankfully got a copy of this years ago from a church library sale– they were in need of funds and sold many little treasures such as this.

I liked this little hardcover book as it provided little bits of advice for the Christian to think on, deepening their walk with God. It offers advice on ways to make it a daily practice to seek His presence, and how to become a bit more effective in their prayer life. I was able to read it in one day, but it is surely one I will continue to refer back to. Here is a bit about Frank C. Laubach from the back of the book: “Frank C. Laubach, often cited as ‘apostle of literacy’ began his missionary career in the Philippines in 1913. A few years later, he worked out the first edition of the now world-famous picture-word literacy charts and, in 1930, originated the volunteer method of promoting literacy known as “Each One Teach One” campaign. Through these Laubach teaching processes, more than 60 million people speaking in 200 different languages and dialects have learned to read in their native tongues. Dr. Laubach is widely known and loved as the author of numerous books, most of which carry definitive inspirational emphasis.”
I found what he had to say, not only about his personal life, but also his career inspirational and fascinating.

Daisy’s pick:

3 *** stars

This is a nonfiction Christian book about lessons you can learn from women of the Bible, and how you can apply these lessons to your own life today. Each chapter is dedicated to a different Old Testament woman and one New Testament woman, covering Eve through Mary. Each chapter ends with a series of thought-provoking questions for either group discussion or personal reflection.

I liked the fact that this book brought to mind several Biblical stories that we have heard before, but may have forgotten about, and helps you to apply lessons from these stories to your own life. The questions at the end of each chapter were another thing that I liked about this book… I was up late at night pondering them.

On the downside, there were several things about the book I disagreed with or did not like. I did not like the fact that the author only used the corrupt NIV and New American Standard Bible in the book. The KJV or YLT would have been much better. I also did not like the fact that the author talks so much about divorce and remarriage and how it’s sad that the remarriage statistics for divorced women are so low, but does not mention that according to the Bible, unless under special circumstances remarriage after a divorce is wrong. And another thing that I disagree with is the author’s broad definition of “abuse”. She says that things such as a grouchy husband saying at every meal that his wife should have made it differently and complaining about everything she does is “verbal abuse”. The husband may be a rude grouch and hard to live with, but I would never consider that “abusive”!

Overall, I am in the middle about this book. Unfortunately, on most reviewing websites you can’t rate a book at 2 1/2 stars, though, so I will give it three stars.

To close the post, I will leave you with a video from one of my favorite Indie bands, Liberty’n’Justice, that have attracted many well known artists to record for them and concerts too, because, since Liberty’n’Justice are not beholden to any big labels, they have the artistic freedom to make music and write music exactly how they wish, and many artists find that very attractive. This song, is one of their softer ones (many have a ’80’s heavy metal vibe, which I like as well); this is one of my favorites by them, and this post reminded me of it.  This song, “Every Reason To Believe” was recorded for Liberty’n’Justice by Kelly Keeling of the band  “Baton Rouge”  and Kerri Kelli of “Alice Cooper”  for the “Light It Up” cd.
