Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration - that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession. But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere.

The basic premise of the book, that the word slave is somewhat mistranslated as servant is nothing new. But it does present a good background and explanation of what slave and slavery meant back in the day the bible was written.

The book also is used as a platform for MacArthur to make the case for Calvinism and it does present the case for the concept of Calvin’s TULIP very well and is backed up with appropriate bible verses etc. The argument for/against Calvinism is old and interesting and certainly one that Christians can have without coming to blows. I can appreciate this books presentation on the idea.

I for one have always like the Foundation Trilogy. I consider it simple and easy reading that does not require you to get a score card or journal in order to follow everything. For its' day it was a very cool idea.

If you could sum up Mockingjay in three words, what would they be?

a fullfilling end

What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

Not sure what I would compare it too.

Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

Katniss - I feel she had that character down very consistently.

Good story but...

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-02-10

I gave this only three stars not because of the story but because of the abridgment. Story is great and you learn much about Janeway. I just really dislike abridgments, I wish all the Star Trek book were not like this.
