Enough: Finding More by Living With Less by Will Davis Jr.

We all know of the rat race, or what many people call the American Dream. We spend more, we work more, we stress more. We never have enough money, or enough stuff, do we? Luckily Will Davis Jr. is not only a man who has noticed the insufficiencies that us Americans believe that we face, but he is also a disciple who is obviously deeply saturated by the Words of Jesus Christ. Davis asks his readers, when is enough enough? When and where do we draw the line in what we own and what we allow to own us?...

Handy Guide to New Testament Greek: Grammar, Syntax, and Diagramming by D. Huffman

Weighing in at over 300 pages, I must admit that Belmonte’s text is weighty. Don’t be afraid though, as historically-driven as this book is it is far from those textbooks you remember from high school. Rather, this book is devotional in nature. It shows how God has never given up on His people and how God has continually refining us believers since the creation of our world (see the first few chapters). He traces that same theme throughout history, through the early church fathers, the Reformation, even early presidents of the United States and so forth. God isn’t done...
