FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Beauty Will Save the World by Brian Zahnd

Amy’s Take: Beauty Will Save the World is about how the intrinsic message of the Gospel is beautiful.  Author Brian Zahnd says that the Jews in Jesus’ time expected a benevolent ruler who would overthrow Roman oppression, but instead they got a God-man who died on a tree (and rose again).  To the Jewish people,Continue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Beauty Will Save the World by Brian Zahnd”

FIRST Wild Card Tour: Megan’s Secret by Mike Cope

Amy’s note:  My apologies to FIRST, the publisher, and the author for my lateness in posting about Megan’s Secret.  Due to my recent health issues (the most recent being the tooth infection that just won’t go away!), I completely forgot about this tour.  This is a great book, so take some time to read allContinue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour: Megan’s Secret by Mike Cope”

FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Passion to Action by Jay and Beth Loecken

Amy’s Thoughts: Due to pressing personal circumstances, I didn’t finish Passion to Action yet. However, what I read has intrigued me. I can’t imagine a family giving up the “American dream” for a Kingdom dream. However, that’s exactly what the Jay and Beth Loecken did. At first, I thought it was a little cruel toContinue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Passion to Action by Jay and Beth Loecken”

FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris

Amy’s Take:  Joshua Harris’ first book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, impacted me when I was a teenager trying to figure out the opposite sex and how to date guys while honoring my promise to remain pure until marriage.  While some of Harris’ ideas seemed a little archaic and laughable to naysayers, his book helped meContinue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris”

FIRST Wild Card Tour: The Blackberry Bush by David Housholder

Amy’s Super Short Take:  Honestly, I could not get into The Blackberry Bush.  I wanted to like it because I am always interested in what’s going on in teen culture.  However, the point-of-view changes between characters (Angelo, Kati, Josh) was confusing.  This book wasn’t what I expected.  Read on, and see if this book isContinue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour: The Blackberry Bush by David Housholder”

FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley

AMY’S REVIEW: A thrilling novel about humans, angels, and immortals, Breath of Angel is an interesting addition to the ranks of fantasy work by Christian authors.  From the start, I knew that humans and angels had to work together to restore the stairway to Heaven, so I was interested in seeing how a publishing companyContinue reading “FIRST Wild Card Tour + Review: Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley”
