A weekend light reading review.

Scott Synder.  All-Star Batman, Volume 1: My Own Worst Enemy. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, April 25th, 2017. 192 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

What an amazing story.  The author of this book tells us the true story of how he helped over a hundred South Vietnamese escaped from their country in April 1975 when the Communist North Vietnamese militarily brought about the collapse of the South Vietnamese government.  Again this is one incredible story and I am got to enjoy this story near the forty second anniversary of the fall of Saigon (the capital of South Vietnam).

As I grow more in the Lord I discover the right motivation for obedience matters even more.

Actually wrong motivation for obedience can reveal a misunderstanding of the role of grace and works.  A wrong view of works can lead one to be arrogant and act like a Pharisee.

Here’s a witty ditty that keeps us remembering the right motivation for motivation:

Note: This is a guest post from our dear friend Michael Coughlin.

Matthew 7:1 (and other passages) instructs Christians to judge with righteous judgment and not hypocritically. The essence is this – be careful as you point out sin in another making sure you yourself are not committing the same error.

I have seen this title a few times in different setting and I thought I give this a read.  Since I did not know what to expect I must say half way through the book I discovered I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it.
