This is going to sound weird but I really like the feel of this book. Literally, I don’t know what kind of paper they used on the cover but it feels great. I am not a big eBook reader. I love the feel of the pages, cover, and a physical book in my hand. This book was especially comfortable. I don’t think I have ever mentioned the feel of a book in my reviews but there you go! The 21 toughest questions your kids will ask about Christianity and how to answer them confidently is a true help when it is hard to explain with wisdom filled answers. Alex McFarland put a wonderful resource together. As I began reading this book I decided to use it as a devotional for my children. I approached the 21 questions and supporting information as a mini-lesson.  You cannot read it to the child like a straight out devotional but rather plan the conversation out. Being an educator I appreciate the organized manner in which he lays out every topic, with key concepts, supporting scriptures and quotes, incorporated stories, common questions, and fill in the blank conversation starters to help get some interaction going instead of lecturing the questioning party.  He didn’t call the fill-in-the-blank section conversation starters but that is how I used them. He also includes in the” Key Concept” area a simple and quick “Hope-Filled Answer” that allows for a get-to-the-point answer when you need a quick one. This is not a one-time read type of book for parents; I believe it is a resource you can share with your child through all of their growing stages revisiting the answers as they grow in maturity.

Book Review: Advice for Seekers

Wonderfully pleased! What an amazing book! I am a fan of Charles H. Spurgeon for sure. This text, Advice for Seekers, is great for new converts and for seasoned believers as well. I really think this type of teacher is few and far in-between. I especially like Spurgeon because of the fact that he can be so simple yet kick you right in the rear at the same time. This is a short book that you will want to read over and over again as it continually puts you in your place spiritually. Reading the content makes you realize that if you pridefully think that you have your perfect-self in order, you’re not even close. In the same instance, there is a gentle check it puts you through if you are the type that believes you are no good and fall to short to be important to Our Father God as Spurgeon explains God’s unfailing love.Spurgeon at age 23.
