God of Tomorrow….

God of Tomorrow by Caleb Kaltenbach is Caleb’s second book. His first, Messy Grace was a great book to read that dealt with growing up in a home with same sex parents.

 

This book has to do with overcoming our fears and renewing our hope for the future.  God  holds tomorrow and knows all about it so there is no reason for us to worry and fret about what the future holds.

 

I am reminded of the older song that states, “I don’t know about tomorrow…. but I know who holds my hand!”

This book tackles many of today’s current societal issues.  It is broken down into reasonable chapters with questions that would be good for a Bible study or are good for personal reflection.

I did not feel that this book is as captivating as Messy Grace, but is still a good book

I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review!

Wonderful!

LULLABY ROAD by James Anderson it a tremendous book.  Twist, turns, intrigue, humor, drama…. it is all there in this book.

About the time you think you have it figured out where James Anderson is heading as he takes you down this winding, hilly road….. There is an unexpected road block that turns it all upside down.

The desert of Utah is the setting of this book regarding a truck driver and his customers and other desert rats along his route.

This is the second book I have read by Anderson.  Whenever a third one is available, I will certainly want to read it.

Terrible

Dr. Denis Leary wrote “Why We Don’t Suck.”  This book, although I attempted to read it, is full of more terrible language that I have seen in a long, long time.
After the first few pages, I put it down.  I later picked it up and attempted to read it again.  The language is so bad that I am not going to retry.

 

I was expecting political analysis with some perhaps caustic comments, but the words this author uses are over the top and not a part of my everyday vocabulary.  It should have an X-rating.

I receive this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.  It is a waste of paper and postage.

The Far Away Boys. Review

Lauren Markham as the author of THE FAR AWAY BROTHERS tells a captivating story that is based primarily on twin boys who leave El Salvador to come to the United States for a better life.

Much of the story is of their escape of their local community because of poverty and gang warfare. The trip North is told with gripping details of the many dangers of traveling with a coyote to avoid checkpoints along the way. The Flores boys are identical twins. They are part of a large family that is attempting to do the right things and avoid troubles. This is nearly an impossible task.

When they finally reach the United States, the twins journey is not done. The myriad of regulations stymie them nearly at every turn. The lack of knowledge of the English language is a huge barrier as well.

This is very well written and I enjoyed it! At the end of the book the author turns more political in expressing her views. This book covers from 2013 until early 2017.

If you know any who are struggling to assimilate into the US way of life as far as jobs, licenses, schooling and language, this could offer great insight into what they have been through and the inner struggles they are battling.

Chasing Phil

Chasing Phil by David Howard is the story of two green-horn FBI agents that got in way over their heads. An idea to investigate turns into an international investigation of swindling that reached levels the agents could not have imagined in their wildest dreams. Phil Kitzer, a charming con man, becomes someone that even the agents could admire.

The agents manage to become a part of Kitzer’s inner circle. This involved a great sense of trust by a man with an uncanny ability to feel betrayal and dishonesty. Yet they pull it off. Wearing wires in many places where they would have been executed if they were found out, adds to the nervous moments the agents faced.

The agents realized their mistake of using their own names and had to make calls to change their credit history to make them appear that they were much more prosperous than they were.

Lies, deceit and so much more keep this story moving along. You can feel the tension in the rooms when meetings are going on. The long hours and the amount of alcohol consumed add to the fatigue and the chance that these agents will be caught.

Chasing Phil reveals how a con man operates and how the cycle must continue to keep everything afloat.

Taking Aim by Eva Shockey

Taking Aim by Eva Shockey is quite the book. This book is an easy one to read and an autobiographical story of a young lady who has a career choice that is rarely traveled.

Eva Shockey tells of her journey from ballet lessons to traveling world wide hunting a wide variety of game. She tells of the resistance she has received by all sorts of animal rights activists and also by many who are hunters.

This is a great read for anyone who loves the great outdoors and cares for God’s creation. Any hunter would truly love this book. It you are on the edge and not sure where you stand on hunting and taking the life of a wild animal, you need to read this book as well.

Shockey goes to length to tell of the benefits that hunters provide to game conservation around the world. The numbers of animals in the United States that are considered big game have gone up dramatically under the guidance of Game organizations in all of the states. Wild game provides for food for many in underdeveloped nations around the globe.

I must admit, I am a hunter. Certainly not to the level that Eva Shockey attains, but one that enjoys the outdoors and putting venison into my freezer. As the temperature begin to drop, I am looking forward to deer season where I hopefully can harvest a deer.

Explosive! Sobering Testimonial!

I just finished reading CONVICTED by Jameel McGee and Andrew Collins!  The cover states that this is a story of a crooked cop an innocent man and an unlikely journey of forgiveness and friendship.

That only begins to tell the story.  CONVICTED covers racial tensions, anger, guilt, the pressures put on our local police forces around the nation and a look at life behind bars.  White and black.  Guilt and innocence.

This is written following the timeline in the lives of these two men.  A trip to the store leads to a 10 year sentence in a Federal Prison.  The pressure to be an achiever leads to false charges.

God steps in and slowly works in the lives of Jameel and Andrew.  No dramatic overnight changes, but slowly speaking to the hearts of each person.

This is an easy read.  CONVICTED is due to go on sale September 19, 2017.  I was given the privilege to read an uncorrected proof copy of the book in return for an honest review.  If there were a way to give more than 5 stars, this would be earned by this book!
