I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

  • "Great Book, definitely worth the li..."

    Overall

    This book was very difficult to read, considering it's subject matter. My parents were pastors, and I have attended churches both small and mega. Knowing the little I did of the behind the scenes drama and dynamics... this book scared me with it's reality. A Christian book about a pastor that makes mistakes that he doesn't think are mistakes. I found myself wanting his wife to cheat on him! However, the author only brings out this desire in her readers because she wants us to feel what the characters feel, and she sets the character and the reader straight. Very good book, very unsettling in its reality, but a must read for pastors, their wives, or anyone even considering going into the ministry... I wouldn't recommend this book for non-christians, as well written as it is, because of the harshness of the message behind it, and because I don't think they were this book's target audience.

    If you want to recommend a christian book to a non-christian, I'd highly recommend her other novel, Redeeming Love

    As for this particular audio version, I found that I didn't like the narrator. Her voice just sounded too old for most of the characters, and at times, in order to express certain emotions, she would speak REALLY slowly, especially with the older characters in the book. It wasn't bad, but it was just harder to get used to, but I eventually did. I considered giving this book 4 stars because of the narration, but it's so good as a piece of compelling christian fiction that I couldn't do it. Highly recommended. :)

    Energetic young pastor Paul Hudson rejuvenates a dying church and boosts attendance so high that a new building must be constructed. But in his eagerness to please the new devotees, Paul loses touch with what truly matters.

  • "Almost perfect"

    Overall

    I gave this audiobook 5 stars based on the novel itself. It's incredibly poignant, as well as controversial. I love how she handles everything from a strict Biblical standpoint, while still making the characters very very real. It's also a very hard look at modern day Christians (though the copyright is over 10 years ago0: hypocrisy, showing how Christians are prone to attacking their wounded, and how compromise based on pity and what's easiest is not always what's right. Incredible, heart-wrenching book.

    That said... I hated the narration. Ruth Ann Phimister is an excellent narrator, don't get me wrong... but I did not feel that her voice fit this book in the slightest. I could understand her narrating And The Shofar Blew, because the main characters were older, one even elderly, so I could understand... However, with the main character of this story being 18, with a lot of other young characters, her voice was just not believable to me, and took away from what I consider to be an amazing novel. Kate Forbes would have been a better choice (narrator for Redeeming Love).

    Overall though, I highly recommend this book. It pulls your heart in two directions, while gently steering you toward sound Biblical principles. A must read for any woman, or man for that matter.

    Story

    As a HUGE Francine Rivers fan, I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed in her two latest books (The Marta's Legacy Series). While good books, I felt they lacked the connection to the characters that I'd come to love about her other books. Whether it was the narration or the writing, I felt disconnected and disappointed.

    Bridge to Haven is back to the Francine Rivers I adore. Redeeming Love and the Mark of the Lion series are my favorites by her, and Bridge to Haven is in their caliber. I laughed out loud, I cried, and I sang along with the Hymns that I recognized. The setting is fantastic, 40s-50s California, with references to all the old stars. Aubra will connect to so many girls/women of today, who feel they need to change themselves in order to be loved, that they have to be perfect or be discarded. It's a wonderful, touching, at times tragic, and at times lusty (did I just say lusty in reference to a Christian romance!?).

    Francine finds a way to describe what Aubra goes through in regards to her search for love (ie: what normally are referred to as sex scenes but really aren't in this book). You experiences what she does, and are in the situation, without the graphic-ness that a secular book would have. If that's an issue, please don't let it deter you from the book. It's integral to the story, and is very tastefully written.

    It's the best book I've read in a very long time. Francine Rivers books are always a cut above the rest and have a realness to them, and a way of the workings of God that a lot of other Christian fiction books tend to ignore in place of their own agendas. Francine's books are there to show us God's love for us, and Bridge to Haven does just that in a well written, hauntingly beautiful tale of a young girl searching for love and her place in the world.

    HIGHLY recommended. Well worth your time.

    To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she' s paid to finally feel like she' s somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven.

  • "A Little Bit Gypped...."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    I never had any interest whatsoever in the Civil War until I stumbled upon "A Light To My Path". I have not only read the trilogy, but have been to Gettysburg twice! I also have devoured all of Lynn Austin's books and have started researching some of the other topics she has laid out. Her stories are faith-based and truly inspiring.

    I really like anything she writes, and I have to say that "Fire By Night" is my all time favorite. I have listened to this book a few times and hope to listen to it many more. Christina Moore does an outstanding job interpreting each character.

    HOWEVER: I read the paperback first (which I also loved) and noticed that the section describing Phoebe's brother Willard on the deathbed was omitted in the Audible version. To me this was a very important part of the original story, as it gave even more insight into Phoebe's character.

    Cancer is a short word for something that has such a devastating impact. Why would God allow it to strike Sylvia Bryan - and why now, of all times, when her mission work back in Nicaragua is bearing such fruit and beset by such needs? For Sylvia, the ravages of surgery and chemotherapy are just part of the struggle. There are the questions, the emotional upheaval---and through it all, one deep desire: that God will use her illness, and that she will glorify him through it.

The last thing Kien Lantec expects on his first day of military leave is to receive marching orders from his Creator, the Infinite. Orders that don’t involve destroyer-racing or courting the love of his life, Ela. Adding to Kien’s frustration, his Infinite-ordained duties have little to do with his skills as a military judge-in-training. His mission? To warn the people of ToronSea against turning their backs on the Infinite to worship a new goddess.

At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written.

    It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old.

    Shirley says: "You wish you lived there and knew these people"

    Bezalel is a Hebrew slave to Ramses II. An artisan of the highest order, Ramses has kept him in the palace even when all other Israelites have been banned. Bezalel blames El Shaddai for isolating him from his people. When Moses and Aaron appear one summer, and El Shaddai shakes Egypt to its core, Bezalel must reexamine his anger. Over the course of the next year, Bezalel's life becomes intertwined with those of an Egyptian child-slave, the captain of the guard, and especially a beautiful young concubine.
