Bethlehem Road: A Guide to RuthBethlehem Road: A Guide to Ruth by Michael Whitworth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Out of the immense moral darkness of the Judges period comes a story of romance, redemption, and hope. The tale of Ruth has inspired countless generations. But Ruth isn’t the star in this romantic drama; center stage belongs to God and his providence. Naomi and Ruth traveled the Bethlehem Road—one of famine, abandonment, grief, and loss—unaware that the Lord had gone before them to redeem their heartache.”

Living & Longing for the Lord: A Guide to 1-2 ThessaloniansLiving & Longing for the Lord: A Guide to 1-2 Thessalonians by Michael Whitworth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“The Christian life can have as many heartbreaks as “Hallelujahs.” Circumstances confuse us. Sin frustrates us. The devil likes to inflict pain on God’s children. Wouldn’t it be great if we could go to heaven as soon as we become Christians and skip the confusion, frustration, and pain?

Sadly, it doesn’t work like that; we have to learn to overcome this world while awaiting the Second Coming. In 1–2 Thessalonians, we are equipped to do just that. “Living & Longing for the Lord” will guide you through Paul’s letters to Thessalonica in hopes of helping you become more like Jesus until he returns.”

The Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-To-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the BibleThe Book of Revelation Made Clear: A Down-To-Earth Guide to Understanding the Most Mysterious Book of the Bible by Tim LaHaye

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The Bible’s final book, Revelation, can seem intimidating or downright impossible to comprehend, even for serious students of the Scriptures. Filled with complex imagery, vivid depictions of violence, and challenging spiritual references,, Revelation is often set aside by readers in favor of more straightforward, easier-to-digest biblical material. Yet the capstone of the canon need not remain a mystery.

Absorb this book and discover afresh – or for the first time – the richness of Revelation and its God-breathed, life-changing power to deeper your walk of faith.”

“Every day it seems the world becomes increasingly hostile to Christianity. Values are being scuttled, faith is scorned, and God’s people are being marginalized. These difficult times pose two questions to Christians. How can we be the “light of the word” in such abject darkness? And how can God still be in control of all things?”
