A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

James G. Stavridis.  Sea Power: The History and Geopolitics of the World’s Oceans. New York, NY: The Penguin Press, June 5th 2018. 384 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a wonderful and highly informative book on geopolitics.  The author James G. Stavridis is an accomplished US Naval Admiral and among his many accomplishment was being the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO towards the end of his career.  His perspective is quite insightful and I would say unique!  He’s not only looking at this in light of analysis and history but also shares his personal “sea stories” that makes this book all the more interesting.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Can only God work wonders?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Only God can do great wonders.

To Him who alone does great wonders, For His lovingkindness is everlasting” (Psalm 136:4)

Satan can also do great wonders.

that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” this week’s review of a children’s book isn’t a Christian work but still something homeschool kids and parents would appreciate!

Geronimo Stilton.  The Discovery of America. New York, NY: Papercutz, August 18th 2009. 56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the first graphic novel in the Geronimo Stilton Graphic Novel series published by Papercutz.  I read this to my daughters and they totally fell in love with it!  When I read it to them at night they tell me not to stop; that’s how much they enjoyed it.  I love how the book is a story of the mouse Geronimo Stilton and his family and friends going into time in history through a time machine and along the way young readers will also learn about history.  I really like that as a parent!

This is a Christian Home School Lesson Series for first graders on the 50 United States.

I typically go over two states at a time since we teach our kids multiple subjects during the day and two states at a time seems to be enough.  However if one is teaching one subject at a time I think going over four states at a time would be just right.

Our series’ lesson plan will be in alphabetical order and go over four states at a time.

Are there any other interesting facts you would add for any of the states mentioned?  Feel free to leave a comment!

Had a lot of counseling and things come up this month pastorally while in the midst of working on preparing to teach overseas this Spring in an undisclosed location.

Please pray for my studies and preparation that I can get everything done and done well.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is the sixth book I read from the “Short Studies in Biblical Theology” series published by Crossway.  I have immensely enjoyed the other five volumes that I read from this series and this work is no different.  This particular work explores the Lord’s Supper.
