    I have been very disappointed by every book I've ever read, on evangelism.

    The only good book on the subject, a biography: The Heavenly Man by Brother Yun.
    He also wrote "Living Water" - a good "go out and harvest some souls for the kingdom" type book that helped inspire my work.

    " I have had an increasing burden to engage in some down and dirty, street evangelism." March 6, 2010

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    Matthew 22:9 NIV
    'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’

    A Shepard looks at Psalm 23

    Great book

    Default If I perish by Esther Ahn Kim

    What a true story of a Young Korean woman who stood tall for the Lord in prison in the days of ww2.Her faith is certainly off the scale as you read about her fears,loves,atitude and heroic faith in standing for what is right.A modern day Daniel 3:17-25--she refused to bow and paid a hefty price for it-5 years in cold dark prisons--and how she acted in there--wow.If you like martyr stories and books of faith,read this one you will not be dissapointed.

    Currently, I am reading "Night Watch," a Discworld novel by Sir Terry Pratchett. For those unfamiliar with the series, Discworld is a pancake-shaped world that sits on the backs of four giant elephants who in turn stand atop the shell of a giant star turtle casually traveling through space. The setting is a cross between medieval times and the Victorian Era in England, and the stories themselves are hilarious. Many times I catch myself laughing out loud.

    Wonderful book. It was given to me to read by one of the elderly ladies of our church after my mom passed away. It helped so much!

    The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty by Willie and Korie Robertson of the show Duck Dynasty. Great, heart-warming, easy read so far. I'm about three-quarters of the way through it. Great family and I love their show.

    I loved those books! I'm now looking forward to starting "Son Of The Underground" by Brother Yun's son, Isaac Liu.

    Default A collection of essay,s about the history and origin of the King James Bible

    This 164 page book "King James and it,s translators"by Laurance Vance is actually a collection of essay,s by different people some not seen in print before.
    There are 15 chapters as follows:
    1.King James and the throne of England
    2.The Hampton court conference
    3.The learned men
    4.The King James Translators at work
    5.The 1611 King James Bible
    6.Editions of the Authorized Version.
    7.Chapters,verses,words
    8.Purified 7 times
    9.Was the King James Version authorized ?
    10.The origin of King James Onlyism
    11.King James onlyism in Scotland
    12.A standard Bible
    13.The authorized version and the "originals"
    14.Word changes in the King James Bible
    15.Archaic words and the authorized version.

    This book is of a reasonable type size,well spaced andclear to read.It is however intricate and very complete in its coverage of what the King James Bible is and is not.It is not a pro King James book as much as it sounds,its simply a book about the King James Bible.If you want to know about the translators,where they met,their notes and want a complete history of the King James Bible origin in a small concise book this is for you. To me --some of it was dry,giving the ancestry of King James,and other places.

    There is also a complete Biblography in the back that is very detailed.

    One point that was not given I feel I must add to this book is the fact that the some Christians reject the King James Bible as the perfect word of God because they do not want an ultimate authority ruling over their lives.For example if the NIV was suddenly pronounced as the perfect word of God there would be many rejectors of that version as well simply because if there is no perfect version,then people can feel free to do what they want because there is no ultimate authority in all faith and practice.

    Started "Israel at War: Inside the Nuclear Showdown with Iran" by Joel Rosenberg last night. It's a short (100 page) kindle book published Oct 15 (and is only $3). So far I really haven't learned much new but it has some direct conversations between Rosenberg and Netanyahu. I'm enjoying it, and it's got all the information on what's going on in the ME in one little book. Also shows just how crazy and dangerous Iran is.
    and to wait for his Son from heaven,
    whom he raised from the dead—Jesus,
    who rescues us from the coming wrath

    It was interesting but not in the way that I thought it might be. Not much about the politics, mostly a detailed account of the life of a Navy Seal and what it was like, training for and being part of that mission, and exactly how it went down, complete with maps and drawings.
