Book Review: Dawn of Christianity How God Used Simple Fishermen, Soldiers, and Prostitutes to Transform the World By Robert Hutchison

Please note: This review was made possible by a review copy from Book Look Bloggers. All opinions are my own, thank you.

Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s Dawn of ChristianityHow God Used Simple Fishermen, Soldiers, and Prostitutes to Transform the World, by Robert Hutchison.

How did Christianity truly come to be?  The Dawn of Christianity tells the story of how the first followers of Jesus survived the terror and despair of witnessing the one they knew to be the messiah—God’s agent for the salvation of the world.

Using the most recent studies by top Christian and secular scholars, Robert Hutchinson, known for his popular books on Christianity and Biblical Studies, writes from all of the known accounts of these early resurrection appearances and follows the witnesses to the resurrection as they experience brutal persecution at the hands of zealots such as Saul of Tarsus and then become committed evangelists to the major population centers in Antioch, Damascus, Rome, and Athens—and ultimately across the world.

This book is a must-have this season. To find out more about this book, click here.

Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s And Still She Laughs: Defiant Joy in the Depths of Suffering,  by Kate Merrick.

Book Review: I Am: A 60-Day Journey to Knowing Who You Are because of Who He Is, by Michele Cushatt

I Am: A 60-Day Journey to Knowing Who You Are because of Who He Is by [Cushatt, Michele]

 

Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new book review and this time it’s I Am: A 60-Day Journey to Knowing Who You Are because of Who He Is, by Michele Cushatt. 

This book speaks to the pressure to do more, be more, and to have more than their parents before them from many women from all walks of life. A desire that has never been more intense. From online marketing, self-help books, movies, magazines and gym memberships. Even church attendance can be seen as a form of a lopsided social media stream. All of which leaves women wondering if they are pretty enough? Hip enough? Spiritual enough? Good enough?

This book deals with the typical self-esteem strategies and positivity plans weren’t enough. Instead, she needed a new foundation, one that wouldn’t prove flimsy when faced with the onslaught of day-to-day life with raw personal stories, biblical teaching, and truths on which to rebuild your life.

I Am reminds us that our value isn’t found in our talents, achievements, relationships, or appearance. To find out more about this book, click here.
