Stealing from God – (Why atheists need God to make their case)

by Frank Turek

This is a book that every college student should have. Wait, let me rephrase that. This is a book that everybody should have. Frank Turek is incredibly informed and detailed when talking about the different arguments for atheism vs. theism. In this book, he actually shows you how it takes more faith to believe that there is no God, than to believe the God of the Bible.

Throughout the book, you will find many different debates with high profile atheists. He, and others, go head to toe with Richard Hawkings, Stephen Hawkin, Christopher Hitchens, etc… Fascinating to see all these brilliant minds and the conclusions that they come to.

Please pick up a copy because it is what you need to strengthen your faith and be able to defend it. Incredibly informative and clear. If you would like to pick up a copy, just click HERE.

Thanks, Tyndale, for giving me a copy of this book. As always, this is my honest review. Here’s to many more!!

Prepare

“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials…” James 1:2

“The verb used means we are to make a deliberate, conscious and careful decision to experience joy even in the midst of suffering. We are not to complain, shrink back, or express despair. Instead, we are to greet suffering with joy!” — J. Paul Nyquist

Having already seen and felt the persecution that is now upon us, this book was both convicting and like a soothing balm. How quickly our country has fallen from the basic, Biblical principles it was founded on. We are like the blind slowly being led to our deaths. Social changes come and embed in our thinking until we find that we are questioning the very idea that God must have meant something different when He blatantly opposes sins. We warp Him to be a God that we can understand and agree with. By doing this, the church is inviting persecution. It will be time to stand up for Him or flee. We think that won’t ever happen in America, but let me tell you, friends, it is here. It is now.

“When we suffer unjustly, we expect others to defend us. As we prepare for persecution from a hostile culture, we expect to be lovingly supported by family members and ably defended by our government, but the third counterintuitive biblical principle is that believers can expect to be exposed, not protected. This may not be true in every case, but as a general principle we shouldn’t rely on family or government to defend us when persecution comes. Often they won’t.” — J. Paul Nyquist (Bold is added by me)

Unfortunately, I know this too well. Standing firm in the beliefs of the Bible is not a popular thing to do. In fact, it is considered hateful. It will divide families, friends and neighbors. This book shows you how to prepare, how to pray and how to rejoice in it. Wonderful read. Please pick up a copy!!! Just head over here

Thank you, netgalley, for this wonderful read. As always, I have given my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!

Kidnapped by the Taliban — by Dilip Joseph, MD

with James Lund

kidnapped by the taliban

Christian Medic. Taliban Kidnapping. SEAL Team VI rescue. Count me in!!

Dilip Joseph is a man that wants to serve and show others the love, mercy and peace that can be found within a relationship with God. While serving in Afghanistan, his own faith was put to the ultimate test. Being held for ransom, he strives to trust God and show his kidnappers compassion and love. Of course, we now know that he was rescued by SEAL Team VI, but not before touching the hearts of those that meant him harm.

This book was not at all what I was expecting. I was amazed at the love Dilip had for his captors and the relationships he was able to build with them. God gave him true peace through such a frightening ordeal. Christianity could change the world if we could all show Christ to those around us, no matter who they are.

I would absolutely recommend this book and, in fact, have already done so. If you would like more info on this, just click here!! You can even preview it for free here.
