God’s Pursuit of Man

God's Pursuit of ManAnother great read by A. W. Tozer. In this book he tackles the issues man has with giving his all to God. A great companion to The Pursuit of God I remember reading this book soon after the former and falling in love with it. I recommended the book to anyone who would listen. It was just the thing I needed and got my thoughts turning over and over in my mind, processing what I had read. If you’re in a slump right now with your Christian walk, or just anyone really, this is an absolute must read. It helps you refocus on your journey and realize how small everything is in comparison to God. Great book, great minister. Easy five star book.

The Pursuit of God

The Pursuit of GodThe Pursuit of God is probably the first book I ever read by A. W. Tozer. I was fifteen and was absolutely amazed at how I was riveted to this book as much as novels riveted me. In my young mind it was dumbfounding. Since then I had always intended to reread the title but never had. I wanted to see if the book still had the same effect on me. Well it did. In my opinion this is the best book by Tozer – EVER. From front to back it’ll take you on a remarkable journey and teach very important topics. It’s a necessity in any Christian’s library. I remember comparing this to a theology course I was taking in high school at the time and wishing so very much that instead of reading A. W. Pink I was reading A. W. Tozer. Honestly, for any fifteen-year-old to want that, you know it’s got to be good stuff. This book had a pretty good impact on my life as I hope it continues to do so. Many thanks to Moody for bringing this title around again – great read, highly recommend.

Prayer

PrayerI’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – A. W. Tozer’s writings are the best. Like. For real. I’m absolutely thrilled with all the reprints Moody has been releasing over the last few years. Great content and beautiful cover art. Prayer tackles some issues that churches are dealing with today in that specific realm. Lately things have been kind of tough. The last two years especially. Sometimes I just didn’t know what to do, and, truth be told, I didn’t do what I should have done – pray. This is a great little book and timely too as we see everything that’s going on around the world and in our personal lives. It’s tumultuous times. Now more than ever prayer is needed. And sometimes our pride gets in the way. Maybe you’re like me and need to just delve into a book like this. At first I was like, people need to read about prayer? But then the more I read the more I realized every Christian needs to read this book. It’s an absolute fabulous read and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The Apache Wars

The Apache WarsMickey Free. Victim and…not so victim. His was an unfortunate lot. Trusted by few, the life of the mixed blood soul was entwined with those he met along the way setting a sometimes less than happy course in history. This is that story. With vivid characters like Geronimo and the Apache Kid this is a book not to be missed.

Riveting ready by Paul Andrew Hutton. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for a true story set in this time frame. I absolutely love the stories of the West, of human restlessness and stubbornness. The Apache Wars does not disappoint. The story flowed from the pages painting brilliant pictures for the mind’s eye. It definitely worth a read.

Dawn at Emberwilde

25863713Isabel Creston is settled. Finally. She’s mostly content though in her earlier days she had been somewhat of an odd duck. She’s teaching and caring for her sister, quietly. With her parents gone, she’s the responsible one now. Then the news of unknown relatives comes and the pair are tossed into a difficult world that will teach them valuable lessons and lead them down unexpected paths.

Sarah E. Ladd is definitely one of my favorite authors. Dawn at Emberwilde not only had a beautiful cover but an intriguing story to go along with it. It’s a great addition to the Treasures of Surrey. From the fabulous writing style, to the setting, and array of relatable characters it’s definitely worth a read.

Saffire

27876270I’m baaaaaack! So after a stint of craziness I’m back in the blogging world for a little bit. I went about a year and half without an internet connection in my home, and then moving and working all over creation, but for the present I’m settled and going to get back into the groove of things and take up all my crazy habits of getting lost in stories for hours on end. I’ve missed it so so much.
Danger constantly lurks as Saffire sets out to find her mother. Meeting James Holt wasn’t part of the plan. Together the two brave a world of adventure and chaos and learn valuable lessons.

Told from the point of view of James Holt, this book has all the charms of a Sigmund Brouwer novel. While this one didn’t hook me from the first sentence like previous novels by Brouwer it was still engrossing. With real and flawed characters and gritty story lines it definitely becomes the page turner that you won’t want to put down anytime soon. Considering reading Saffire but on the fence about it? Well if I were you I’d get a copy in my hands right now.

Evenings with Tozer

Evenings with TozerSo after my initial excitement over finding Mornings with Tozer when I then saw Evenings with Tozer everything just felt complete. Yes, I’m a booknerd, yes I love a pretty cover, and yes Tozer is one of my all time faves. A perfect complement to Mornings when you’re winding down after a long, sometimes hard, day at work this is just the thing to remind me that we’re not alone in this thing called life. I will say if you’re looking for Tozer’s customary “deep” works, these devotionals are a little bit more light, but then they ARE devotionals, which I feel are marketed towards people who have just enough time to get that daily entry in before heading off to work or ending their day. They’re perfect in that respect. Well worth the read in either case. An easy five stars!
