All Manner of Things (Book Reviews)

By Benjamin H. Liles

           Susie Finkbeiner's book All Manner of Things has been a highly anticipated book of 2019. Before I jump into the review of this book I want to mention how dedicated of an author she is. Susie is the bestselling author of A Cup of Dust, A Trail of Crumbs, and A Song of Home. She volunteers her time at Ada Bible Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and she speaks at retreats and women's conferences throughout Michigan.

Soul Sins (A Soundbite)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          A lot of people believe that when they die they aren't going to Heaven or Hell, kind of a holding place somewhere between. God says otherwise. "The soul who sins is the one who will die. A son will not bear the iniquity of the father, and a father will not bear the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will fall upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked man will fall upon him" (Ezekiel 18:20, Berean Study)

Living Lies (Book Reviews)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          When I say that I truly loved a book it has to do with the way an author writes, the phrasing of what is said, the characters given and portrayed. I can say the same for Natalie Walters latest Living Lies, it is really a good read. The book is set against the southern town of Walton, Georgia where Lane Kent has a restaurant. It seems from the outside of the book she's seeking to move on after her husband's death. We see a woman, a bit of how she is--being depressed, and at the same time who ends up seeing a dead body.

Traits of Righteous

By Benjamin H. Liles

          When I think of all the things God has done on my behalf and throughout my life I can't help but lift my lips in praise and thankfulness to Him. Even on those days it seems hard to do the same I still look at Him as my source and my comfort. It is with this reason I'm going over a psalm I believe to be important. It's not just important to me, but to every one who reads it.

Less is More (Book Review)

By, Benjamin H. Liles

          While I mainly and always write what I know would please Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, I have to be truly objective when I talk about Chris Nye's book, Less is More. When I say what I do it's about our popular culture, such as Britney Spears, Pope Francis -- also known by the name Jorge Mario Bergoglio, before being crowned "Pope," and admittedly things pertaining to what all Americans desire after: prosperity. I applaud none of that, save Christ alone.
