James and Jude by John Painter and David deSilva

Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament presents … James and Jude by John Painter and David deSilva Pick up your copy at Amazon.com or Christianbook.com! I haven’t had the opportunity yet, prior to now, to provide full-fledged commentary concerning a commentary … but I am very excited to make this the first (though I did promote a shorter commentary-like text on the book of Ruth not long ago, this is a much more in-depth study of a book of the bible). Here’s what is really great about the commentary – the size and the approach to the Word of God....

Show Me How to Share Christ in the Workplace by R. Larry Moyer

Everybody is told to do it. Everybody wants to do it. But from the Great Commissioning to the sixth hour of an eight hour shift, some might say that the Scriptures are just not “practical” enough in showing us how to present the Gospel to our coworkers, to our boss, to the bus or cab driver on the way to work.

Book Bundle Giveaway! To be honest, Brave Reviews has been pretty busy lately. There has been a slow and steady transition from Christian Living material to what some would call “academic.” I am finding that a lot of people are much more interested in the books and resources that are going to change them down deep rather than fluffy, encouraging thoughts that’ll give them nourishment for a day or two. If you are into material as that of which I have just stated — I mean research and reviews that prove depth over distance (yes, stolen from a song...

Praying Circles Around Your Children by Mark Batterson

Prayer is a discipline that, I believe, is not practiced diligently by the present generation — the “millennials” as we are so easily tagged. There is something bizarre and, might I even say “spiritual” to praying that causes many battling through the Christian faith to shy away from it. Batterson has made it his mission to counter that belief. This is not his first, nor do I believe it will be his last, book on the issue. Check it out on Amazon.com or Zondervan.com  Publisher: Zondervan, 2012 Page count: 107 His target audience in this book? Parents. Scripture preaches to parents to...
