Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation Find True Peace in Jesus
By Robert Morgan
I already had a decent understanding of what biblical meditation is before I picked up this book. It explains a lot of what biblical meditation is and why people should do it — but I was already convinced of that before I opened the book. What I found helpful was the prompts for biblical meditation near the back of the book, which offer Bible verses to think about and carry in your mind throughout the day.
Radical Spirit by Joan Chittister
I read and review a lot of faith books, and most of the time I connect right away. For some reason, this one did not really inspire me as much as I thought it would. The author makes a good point about the need for more humility in our world today, and she makes the case for how humility is tied to a radical faith. She speaks the truth, but the tone was dry for me, and I had trouble connecting with the writer’s voice.
One Pan & Done: Hassle-Free Meals from the Oven to Your Table by Molly Gilbert
I decided to request a copy of this book because one pan and done is exactly how I cook now. My favorite recipes take one pan – usually a dutch oven, cast iron skillet, or the trusty red crockpot. I figured I would get more ideas that already fit my way of cooking. So far, I have tried the recipe for broccoli soup. Honestly, I thought it was just okay, and the parmesan cheese was almost too strong for my personal taste. I would make it again and put cheddar cheese in the soup. Obviously, the recipe tastes a lot better than broccoli and cheese soup from a can. Browsing through the book, I see many recipes that I want to try, and I think they will taste great. Just because I was a little disappointed in the soup, I still think this book will have a lot of winners.
Really Woolly Easter Blessings by Bonnie Rickner Jensen
I wanted this board book specifically to read with my son leading up to Easter. The illustrations are adorable, and he has enjoyed sitting down with me to read it a few times already. This book has rhymes, Bible verses, and prayer starters. My son liked the illustrations. It is neat when these books have Bible verses in them because the book has something for the adult looking at it too. Of course, my son’s go-to books will always have cars, trains, or trucks in them – but this did hold his attention.
I received Radical Spirit and One Pan & Done: Hassle-Free Meals from the Oven to Your Table from Blogging for Books and Biblical Meditation and Really Woolly Easter Blessings from Book Look Bloggers in return for my honest review.
