Three Recommended Reads

If you're always on the lookout for good Christian reading material, both fiction and non-fiction, I've got three recommendations for you. I had the pleasure of reviewing these three books for this month. I've posted the back cover copy for all three, and links to my reviews are included at the end of each blurb.

POSSESSION by Rene Gutteridge

Back cover copy:

In the aftermath of investigating the D.C. sniper case, detective Vance Graegan is burned out on life and love. Hoping to save his marriage, he quits the force and moves his wife and son to the other side of the country. But when the movers decide to hold his belongings for ransom, Vance is determined to ensure his family's new beginning is not ruined. Soon, though, losing his possessions becomes the least of his problems, as everything they are fighting for begins to unravel in the hands of Vance's past. In an unforgettable climax, a little boy's innocent faith brings a group of desperate people to their knees. What is at stake counts for everything, but nothing can prepare Vance for who is behind it.



Back cover copy:

The last time Dixie's Aunt Connie saw her fiance' was the night before their wedding. Now, forty years later, he's wrapped in pink cellophane and lying in Connie's flower cooler...

Psychologist Dixie Tanner has been recruited by her uncle to help prove her aunt's innocence in the murder of Aaron Scott. But when Dixie arrives home in Kenna Springs, she finds her loyal-but-wacky relatives have taken matters into their own hands and are determined to find the killer before anyone misses the victim. There are just two little problems...that pesky body in pink and the real murderer--who soon decides that Dixie and her aunts and uncle know too much for his own good.


SOUL PRINT by Pastor Mark Batterson
Christian Living

Back cover copy:

In Soulprint, Mark Batterson pours the insight and energy he's known for into helping you experience the joy of discovering who you are...and the freedom of discovering who you're not. The wonderful fact is that your uniqueness is God's gift to you, and it's also your gift to God.

A self-discovery book that puts God at the center rather than self, Soulprint encourages you to recognize and explore the five defining moments in your life that will determine your destiny. Along the way, you'll find that you're not just turning the pages of a book. You're turning the pages of your remarkable, God-shaped, world-changing life.
