The Coming of the Lord

By Benjamin H. Liles

          But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, ~ 2 Peter 3:10-11, NKJV

Sound Doctrine at the End


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. ~ 2 Timothy 4:1-5, New American Standard

Stones of Remembrance (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          When I read this book it read to me like a promise book. I don't just believe Daniel Amen's words that in living out the words of the Bible will help memory, but also elevate your quality of life. It has been proven that if you want to get some where you have to start walking. So it is with memorization, meditation, and in living out a rich and qualitative life in Jesus (sorry for big words). In other words, when we memorize scripture, when bad moments come we can walk through relatively unscathed and worse for wear as God's word is imprinted on our hearts.

By Benjamin H. Liles

Walking in Wise Counsel


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand on the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in Yahweh’s law. On his law he meditates day and night. ~ Psalm 1:1-2, WEB

Dani Pettrey's Blind Spot (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Dani Pettrey's latest book, Blind Spot, is non-stop action smattered with tender hearted Christian moments. As I read this book I couldn't help but not put it down. I had to re-read it a couple of times to understand.  everything. The one problem I had was trying to get my hand on her other two books in the series (to no avail) to understanding where she was going with this book. But that's not a real bad thing or even a concern.

Live Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly


By Benjamin H. Liles

          Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. ~ 1 John 2:15-16

Hinds' Feet on High Places (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I received a copy of this book from Tyndale for my honest and sincere thoughts on Hannah Hurnard's book she wrote many years ago. With it's updated look and illustrations it's hard not to put this book down at all. I have been reading this book and am amazed by how she wrote this book. I think it's a perfect picture of the Christian walk.
