Review: Can I Really Know Jesus?: 101 Questions and Answers about Jesus, Salvation, and Prayer

Can I Really Know Jesus?: 101 Questions and Answers about Jesus, Salvation, and Prayer Can I Really Know Jesus?: 101 Questions and Answers about Jesus, Salvation, and Prayer by Carolyn Larsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Do your children, friends or yourself have questions about Jesus and what He has in store for us? This is a great book for children, teens and adults finding Christ and have questions. It's a colorful book, small easy to transport and easy to read. most questions that you'll find are actual questions that children or teens have asked. The answers have been carefully done using scriptural references without bringing any outside, or personal doctrine. I really appreciate that. Being a Christian based question & answer book, it isn't preachy. Ms Larsen answers the question using scripture references and then leaves it fir the spirit to witness to the person's heart.
There all three sections for the book. The first part is questions and answers about Jesus. Some example questions are: Is Jesus mentioned in the Old Testament? What was Jesus's most important teachings? Why was Jesus baptized?
The second part deals of questions about salvation. Some example questions are: Will I be different after I'm saved? What is sanctification?
The third part is questions about prayer. some examples of questions in this part are: Can God hear everyone's prayer at the same time? Could something be blocking my prayers? Is formal language necessary when praying? Is it really possible to pray all the time?

I received this book from Tyndale Publishing free for my honest review.

Review: The Secret of the Sphinx

The Secret of the Sphinx The Secret of the Sphinx by Samuel Bavli
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story is written more for pre-teens and teens, but I found myself drawn in and excited to read each day. It's a fast-paced adventure/mystery book. Jon is a modern-age boy, trying to help the soul of a vizier, from ancient Egypt, find his murderer.
Though the story is "short" 166 pages and fast paced, I felt like I was still able to get to know the characters and be part of the story of myself. The author did a wonderful job in give just enough information and detail, without being burdensome, that you can picture the story in your mind very vividly.
Samuel Bavli is one of my new favorite authors. Can't wait to read more of his works.

I received a copy of this e-book, from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
