NOTE: My recommending an author's book does not necessarily mean I agree with all that author's doctrinal stands..



You may wonder why most of the books reviewed received 3 or 4 cups; the answer is simple, I seldom finish reading a book unless it really grabs me.

I have started adding fiction reviews also. I will say that to my disappointment, many of the books that I enjoy reading have some content that I wished they didn't have. Often there is vulgar language and sexual scenes that I would rather not read, however, I think if I quit reading anything with questionable content I would not be reading much of anything. I just wish that good Christian writers would start publishing good fiction.
