I am reviewing a copy of A Daring Venture through Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley:

Dr. Rosalind Werner is a biochemist in early 1900’s New York. She’s dedicated her life to crusading against waterborne diseases.

Nicholas Drake is newly appointed Commissioner of Water for New York. He is skeptical of Rosalind and her teams techniques. When a brewing court case throws the two in direct contact, he’s surprised at his reaction to Rosalind.

Rosalind and Nicolas wage a private war against their own attraction at the same time they stand on opposite sides of a battle that will impact many lives. The controversy grows more public and inflammatory leaving Rosalind the target of an unknown enemy, the odds stacked against the two rivals grow more insurmountable everyday.

Strategies and Prayers to Maintain Freedom

by Sophia Ruffin

Charisma House

Christian

Pub Date 01 May 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Set Free and Delivered through Charisma House and Netgalley:

It happens far to often that Christians say the sinners prayer only to fall back into the life of the sin they were saved from. Others fear the same fate as they struggle with resisting old temptations and habits. And we end up blaming God acting as if he didn’t save us completely! When doubts come to Surface we tend to think it’s impossible to stay a faithful Christian.

The truth is, the spiritual warfare you experience is not because you are free. You’re attacked because you are free. It is because you are now a threat to the darkness so the opposition increases. The enemy knows you are instrumental in spreading the gospel and advancing God’s Kingdom.

Sophia Ruffin uses her personal experience to put on the armor of God!

I give Set Free and Delivered five out of five stars!

Book Review: The Prayer Coin

Daring to Pray with Honest Abandon

Pub Date 17 Jul 2018

I am reviewing a copy of Prayer Coin through Discovery House Publishers and Netgalley:

In the Prayer Coin we are reminded that it wasn’t only the Lord’s Prayer that teaches us to pray but Jesus also taught us to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane. We are reminded too that even in the Garden where he knew the pain he was about to endure Jesus cried out in prayer.

It was in the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus modeled a prayer that will transform our prayer life. In the same sentence Jesus created two sides to the same prayer (Take this cup and not my will.)

I give The Prayer Coin five out of five stars!
