Jesus in the Courtroom by John Mauck Review

34002197
Have you ever thought of Jesus as a lawyer?

It may sound odd, but at times in His ministry, Jesus wore his lawyer hat. When he defended the adulterous woman, when he argued from Scripture that the disciples were fine to pick grain on the Sabbath, and in other instances, Jesus insightfully applied to uphold justice and promote goodwill.

The legal aspects of Jesus’ ministry have long been obscured or misunderstood, particularly his interactions with and attitude toward the law and lawyers. Jesus’ desire in his day and ours is to use the law to secure the rights of people to hear the gospel and to set humanity free. In other words, to be the best citizens we can be, we need to follow in the footsteps of the greatest citizen who ever lived.

Jesus in the Courtroom covers topics like:


Why we should care about the law
Strategic involvement with the law
How God has used the law to expand His kingdom
What can happen when we partner with legal professionals
How citizenship is part of discipleship

Christian citizenship in matters like adoption, abortion, minimum wage, foster care, and schools

We are citizens of two kingdoms, but many of us duck and run when it comes to civil life. For anyone who cares about their community—parents, teachers, pastors, you name it—engagement with our legal system can play a huge role in the health of our communities and in cultivating a context where the gospel can flourish.

Jesus in the Courtroom will help us understand not only why we have failed to appreciate the legal aspect of Jesus’ life, but also to understand and cooperate with his legal ministry to us and through us. If we are going to be faithful “citizen disciples” in this challenging new world, we need to look anew at how Jesus taught, thought, and interacted with the legal establishment of his day.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review -  If you first believe in Jesus and secondly have faith, then you can easily picture how the author presents the book.  To say that Jesus had many jobs and how each one would have been worked is a very entertaining idea.  When you add in the aspect of him possibly doing something with the law it becomes more realistic.  I feel like as a reader I was more curious as to how the author would go about presenting the topic and also more aware of they way it was written closer to the author's choice of view regarding how Jesus was perceived in his mind.  Is this worth the read? Yes, I think anything that can better help someone would be a great read, but maybe for older ages.

Finding Gobi by Dion Leonard Review

34460612Bring home the incredible true story of a friendship so strong that it crosses the globe! You will love the inspiring tale of Gobi, a lost dog who kept pace with an ultramarathon runner, Dion Leonard, across a vast desert. Follow their unlikely friendship through the challenges of an 80-mile race and Dion’s struggle to bring Gobi home for good.

Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey is the incredible true story of Dion Leonard, an athlete who was befriended by a stray dog while running an ultramarathon through the Gobi Desert. Named for the desert in which he found her, Gobi became Dion’s closest companion for 77 miles of the 155-mile race across China. The scrappy little pup ran mile after mile alongside Dion, through treacherous conditions and across raging rivers. He let her sleep in his tent and share his food, and eventually, his focus shifted from winning to the newfound friendship he and Gobi shared.

They crossed the finish line together—not first, but together—and Dion decided to bring Gobi home to Scotland. Just before they were about to leave, however, Gobi disappeared, setting off a worldwide search for the stray. In a town of more than 3 million people, the search seemed hopeless, but this tale of friendship will surprise and delight you as you find out what happens!

Join the almost too-good-to-be-true story of hope, friendship, and beating incredible odds in Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey by Dion Leonard. 

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-   I think that no matter what age, if you enjoy a story of friendship and trust, an especially dogs, you will feel a mix of emotions with this book.  At some points I was really cheering for Gobi!  I think that by reading this outloud, my whole family got to get in on the adventure and so this became a great read.  Well even if you have to read it alone, this is still a nice adventure with an enjoyable turn around throughout.

Safe Paw® Ice Melter and Traction Magic Feature @SafePawIceMelt


Ice melters are one of the least understood or known about markets.   It takes a chemist to understand what they are selling.  With names like Calcium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Magnesium Acetate, Potassium Acetate, Calcium Magnesium Acetate, Carbonyl Diamide, etc..., people have no clue what they are looking at. However, almost every one of them is a salt or chloride based product or a derivative of them. They are harmful and even toxic to pets, can damage concrete, and ruin property, and affect the environment.

Salts and chlorides do not disappear, instead they go into the ground and stay there, or get washed away and settle somewhere else…Forever!   The rising salt volumes around the country that have contaminated water is at alert status with ecologists freaking out!!


This season, buy the only 100% salt free ice melter on the market that is completely safe for your kids, pets, and the environment… Safe Paw® Ice Melter. It is unique in its compound and benefits without utilizing any salt as an ingredient and gives off no heat to melt ice. Safe Paw® is a patented dual-effect compound, made up of fertilizer based core infused with a secret sauce of safe ingredients that make this a safe powerhouse of an ice melter.

This non-corrosive composition gives Safe Paw a two-way timed-release action. The liquid component starts melting ice instantly while breaking its surface tension. This allows the crystal-core to quickly penetrate and destabilize the ice and speed up the melting process. Safe Paw actually attracts heat to make it even more effective but does not give off heat. This "endothermic" reaction takes advantage of solar effect and provides extra melting power during daylight hours. As an added feature, Safe Paw leaves an invisible protective shield that prevents ice from sticking to the surface for up to three days. This makes shoveling easier and saves work!

An informed buyer is a responsible buyer! Do your part this winter to make sure you, your kids, your pets and the environment are safe by using the only 100% salt-free ice melter on the market… Safe Paw® Ice Melter!

Safe Paw
Safe Paw® Ice Melter can be purchased nationally, in cold weather states, via hardware stores, veterinarian offices, pet supply stores and grocery/drug chains.

I received complimentary product.

August Books and Bibles for Young Readers with Reviews @Zonderkidz

9780310763147, Brave Beauty : Finding the Fearless You, Lynn Cowell

Brave Beauty
Finding The Fearless You
By Lynn Cowell

What will my life be like? Who will I be? Whether girls put these concerns into words or struggle anxiously with these thoughts, during this season of change, girls have questions. Sometimes these questions also come with fears and they need a safe place to process these fears. From Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and blogger, Lynn Cowell, comes Faithgirlz Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You. For girls 8-12, Brave Beauty brings tweens 100 courage-building moments to reflect on Scripture and find confidence in God, rather than in someone, some place, or some thing, as culture will all-too-soon tell them to. Lynn will also prepare girls to:

Overcome confidence-defeating thoughts and stand on who Jesus says she is.
Shape her self-worth on Christ and overcome the temptation base it on environmental factors.
Build a strong foundation to face the fickle and flippant opinions of others.
Find approval of herself even when she lacks the acceptance of others.
Find security by turning to Christ as she steps through the exciting, yet scary world of growing up
Formatted as theme-based mini chapters, these moments can be read as one-a-days, one-a-weeks, or at the reader’s own pace. Simple and empowering, Lynn’s voice is relatable and conversational, making it easy for girls to feel like they’re spending time with a friend. This inspirational read will be set as a gorgeously foil decorated hardcover, with beautifully formatted pages in line with the well-known and loved Faithgirlz look, and with an easy-reference index to look up any topic.

The Mission Walker By Edie Littlefield Sundby Review

30649501
When Edie Sundby was diagnosed with metastatic cancer and given only three months to live, she vowed to fight. She sought out the best care that the medical community could offer, and she relied on the faith she had inherited from her cotton-farmer parents. But Edie also found healing through movement. Edie knew that if she was still walking, she was still alive.

"The Mission Walker" is both an adventure story and a reflection on the universal experience of confronting our own mortality. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.

Edie’s story shows that the sum of a million steps is a life forever changed.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- I have personally dealt and continue to deal with cancer and even when you are hopefully fully healed there is always a chance it may come back.  I felt the power of this author's writing style and shared the depth that as a reader we crave.  I think anything is possible, but if you have been feeling down or are currently dealing with cancer, this book provides a story that will inspire.

The Gift of Heaven By Charles Stanley Review

33099453
Trustworthy answers to your questions about heaven.

The Gift of Heaven, Dr. Stanley’s first book on heaven, offers biblically based teaching and insights for anyone who has questions about God and what happens after we die.

God has traced the outlines of a lovely blueprint of heaven through His Word. Dr. Charles Stanley provides biblical insights to comfort and encouragement as he explores these questions and more:

How do I know I’ll go to heaven?

Who will be in heaven?

What is life in heaven like?

Take a moment to reflect on life beyond this world, and anticipate the greatest hope of all – the day you see the face of God welcoming you into His fullness.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review--  The author is knowledgeable about a topic most of us could not really understand.  Using the Bible to interpret things is wonderful, but I am not sure of the accuracy when someone chooses to take passages in theories.   I feel like this is an encouraging book that will help believers to find a place that will bring peace after death.

Some Bright Morning, I’ll Fly Away By Alice Anderson Review




Some Bright Morning, I’ll Fly Away By Alice Anderson


The incredible true story of one woman's journey to relocate the place inside herself where strength, hope, and personal truth reside.

After Hurricane Katrina, Alice Anderson has returned home to assess the damage to her beloved Mississippi coastline and the once-immaculate home she’d carefully cultivated for her husband, Dr. Liam Rivers, one of the community's highly respected doctors.

But in the wake of this natural disaster, a more terrifying challenge emerges as Liam’s mental health spirals out of control, culminating in a violent attack at knifepoint, from which Alice is saved by their three-year-old son. Afraid for her life, she flees with her children.

What ensues is an epic battle―emotional, psychological, spiritual, and legal―for her children’s welfare, for self-preservation, and ultimately for redemption. It’s an unrelenting battle that persists even as life goes on, finally coming full circle when the same son who saved Alice ten years before endures an eerily-familiar violent encounter at his father’s hands. Yet even as she confronts the harsh realities of high-powered Southern lawyers and an inadequate legal system, Alice forges a new life with her blossoming children and an ultimate reclamation of her true self.

About The Author

ALICE ANDERSON’s work has appeared in literary journals including Agni and New Letters and is featured in anthologies such as American Poetry and On The Verge. Her second collection of poetry, The Watermark, contains three Pushcart Prize–nominated poems; her first, Human Nature, was published to critical acclaim. The recipient of The Plum Review Prize, the Elmer Holmes Bobst Prize, and The Great Lakes Colleges Best First Book Prize, she also received the Haven Foundation Grant from Stephen King.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's  review-  The book is hard to read without the pain just pouring through.  At some points I have dealt with and connected to points in the author's life.  It is so sad to know the horrors that befall people, but her strength and ability to write about it is so pure and open that if you are in a bad way, this may be the book for you.
