Review of the Sex Spiral


There’s no better testimony than someone who has been there and done that, and that is how the introduction starts out; with a scene that could have been in a movie or even a novel.

I’m going to tell you why I personally don’t like porn. It takes something beautiful and spiritual that God gave us, and turns it into something so degrading that it’s almost enough to make you sick. Besides which, when I’m making love I want the attention on me and not on someone in a porno flick. That’s rejection.

Now, back to the book review I’m writing.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have copied and pasted the contents of the book in order to show you how interesting it is as well as to show the extent the author has gone to in order to help anyone who is addicted to porn, pointing out reasons and even triggers. If you want to be free from porno addiction, this book may be just what you need.

Review of The Call


The Call is about our need for a revival. So, what exactly is a revival? I mean, you hear people bandying the word about as if’s the end all and be all. But exactly what is it? Do we need it? Is it for today or was it only something from yesterday, you know, days gone by? So let's look at a dictionary. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, it means:

Definition of revival

1 : an act or instance of reviving : the state of being revived: such as
a : renewed attention to or interest in something
b : a new presentation or publication of something old
c (1) : a period of renewed religious interest
(2) : an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings
2 : restoration of force, validity, or effect (as to a contract)

So then, when in reference to Christians, it means a renewed interest in Jesus. This is a good thing. People who are Christians are all too often ‘politically correct’ in both their thinking and speaking so they don’t often speak the truth. You can speak the truth in love. Remember, God loves the sinner, but hates the sin.

We do need a revival, both corporately as the church and as an individual Christian. The Call helps us to see the truth. As it stands now, we are often called (labelled) intolerant over a number of things. I think it’s time we went back to foundational teaching and brought the cross, the blood of Jesus and the truth back to the church and into our lives.

If you read this book, it may help you do just that. I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a closer, truer walk with Jesus.

Here is the table of contents, which I copied from the pdf version of the book and pasted into this review. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The reason I copied and pasted the contents of this book is show you all the subjects the author covers. With all that said, let’s all have a revival in our hearts. Amen!

Review of I Can Stand on Mountains


When I was growing up in the mountains of West Virginia, I spent most of my free time roaming those mountains that surrounded our home. I felt at peace there; and little wonder with four brothers who were all younger than me.

I never really thought about mountains in the same way as the author of “I Can Stand on Mountains”, I thought of it as a peaceful place to be. No matter where I am, I can see the handiwork of God, and I find a kind of solace in that.

When I started reading this book, I was really surprised. There are many surprises in the Bible, which I personally believe to be the living, holy word of God. I never really thought about the meaning to each of us, of what God was telling us about the mountains that are mentioned in the Bible.
I do know that the Bible is a multi-layered book, because as you grow, you learn, from reading each book over again. You learn something new each time. I suppose you could conceivably equate it to school, as you move a grade, you learn more and more. And so it is with this book.

I recommend this book to others who are seeking to learn more about God’s mountains. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Review of the Mystery and the Masterpiece


 This is a great story! If you always wondered why God would talk about marriage between a man and a woman, and if sex really is just for ‘procreation’, then you’re in for a treat.

There are excerpts from other books written by other authors, such as “The Dive Romance” written by Gene Edwards. They all play a part in the story about us and God.

This book is written by Randy Blankenship, Sr and he brings some much needed light on this subject. He answers questions that are much needed, as well as show how God the Father sees us.

I recommend this book to anyone who is in need of answers, as well as those who want a better marriage.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
