Brad Brandt and Eric Kress. God in Everday Life: The Book of Ruth for Expositors and Biblical Counselors.  Woodlands, TX: Kress Christian Publications, September 27th 2007. 187 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a commentary on the book of Ruth that helps you not only with exegetical insight into the text but also connect to application for daily life?  This commentary is one you must have in your library!  The subtitle of the book says this is “for Expositors and Biblical Counselors.”  Reading this I can definitely see the authors’ attempt to gear this for expository preachers and Biblical counselors.  This is my first time reading a commentary that is expositional in nature that is also designed for biblical counseling.  I used this book as a resource for my preaching through the book of Ruth and after finishing this book I must say I was impressed.

One of the Christian books my family got to go through was the Answers Books for Kids Box Set.  There’s eight volumes total.  Here’s the links to the reviews of all eight books.  Each review has links to individual titles but for the Box Set from the Answers in Genesis store here or on Amazon here.

Does the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible point us towards Christ?  Here in this book the author Steven Teske shows us how in the very first book of the Bible the Savior of sinners can be found in its pages.

Jim Warner Wallace.  Cold-Case Christianity for Kids.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, October 1st 2016. 127 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is an apologetics’ book geared towards kids.  The publisher labeled the book as Juvenile Nonfiction.  Technically it’s actually a book that lets the readers enter a fictional story of being a cadet in a “Cadet Academy” analogous to the Police Explore program (where kids have the opportunity to understand how the police work) but with a twist: the detective teaching the class also present reasons why Christianity is a faith that is true.  The author is Jim Warner Wallace who in real life has worked for decades as a police officer and cold-case detective.  As a detective he became a Christian when he started to look into Christianity.  With his background he applied his detective skills in evaluating and later defending the Christian worldview.  There’s definitely a lot of good illustrations, examples and analogy that detective Wallace draws upon to make his point throughout the book.  I read this aloud to my daughters and they enjoyed this book more than I expected (my oldest is eight and youngest is four).

Purchase: Amazon

Are you looking for a book concerning how to parent young children biblically?  Specifically with the issue of toddlers’ problem of whining, misbehavior and being out of control?  This counseling “mini-books” is immensely helpful on this topic.  I highly recommend it to parents and those who minister to young parents.  Like the other three booklets I read in this series this one also turned out to be very useful.

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  Thought I post on comics after Tom’s recent post on DC comics.

Mark Waid.  Batman in Barcelona: Dragon’s Knight. New York, NY: DC Comics, July 1st, 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Usually we read of Batman doing his mission in his beloved city of Gotham.  But what is it like if Batman went to another city to fight one of his villains?  In this one shot story Batman goes to Spain to the city of Barcelona to fight the Killer Croc.  I love the premise that Batman is in Barcelona in another city and where the police doesn’t recognize who Batman is!
