The Jesus I Never Knew

Philip Yancey

Price: $2.99

Yancey’s book will open your eyes and mind to a new way of thinking. He will challenge your stereotypes and expose you to uncomfortable views. He supports his observations with evidence and builds his case like Lieutenant Columbo; except, Yancey doesn’t bumble through the bible. Yancey is an expert communicator and articulates well his beliefs. I think you will find this book to be a good investment, monetarily and eternally.

Michael Naumann

‘There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.’
Billy Graham
Philip Yancey helps reveal what two thousand years of history covered up
What happens when a respected Christian journalist decides to put his preconceptions aside and take a long look at the Jesus described in the Gospels? How does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the ‘new, rediscovered’ Jesus—or even the Jesus we think we know so well?
Philip Yancey offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work—his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection—and ultimately, who he was and why he came. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey presents a complex character who generates questions as well as answers; a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who wants to radically transform your life and stretch your faith.
The Jesus I Never Knew uncovers a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. ‘No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same,’ says Yancey. ‘Jesus has rocked my own preconceptions and has made me ask hard questions about why those of us who bear his name don’t do a better job of following him.’

How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth

Gordon D. Fee, Douglas Stuart

Price: $1.99

As someone with a couple years of serious Bible study under my belt, I think it is worth pointing out a couple of chapters, which I found immensely helpful: (1) Acts: The Question of Historical Precedent, (2) The Parables: Do You Get the Point?, and (3) The Law(s): Covenant Stipulations for Israel. The chapter on historical precedent put into words something that I have been ruminating over for some time now, that is, the caveat that a practice as described in a narrative is not ipso facto normative and, therefore, binding. The chapter on parables forever settled an issue that I was confused about, namely, the nature of Jesus’ parables. They may be semi-allegorical at times, but never pure allegory. Lastly, the chapter on the Law is so informative! Stuart gives the big picture of the Old Testament in such a helpful way.
I’m sure there are many helpful books out there on how to read the Bible in a fruitful way. All I will say here is that, provided you are a conservative Christians, you won’t go wrong with this book. (I consider that an understatement, by the way.) There is a lot of content to be digested, however. Commit yourself to read this book a few times over.

Paleo Slow Cooker: 75 Easy, Healthy, and Delicious Gluten-Free Paleo Slow Cooker Recipes for a Paleo Diet

John Chatham

Price: $1.99

Wow! When my husband told me he wanted to go Gluten free, I was very skeptical. After doing some research, I came across “Paleo Slow Cooker” and this book is amazing! I love bread and the Paleo diet allows me to keep my dearly beloved sweet treats! Steamed Hazelnut Breakfast Bread, Banana Bread, Coconut Bread, Pumpkin Bread, Zucchini Bread! All of these are made without Gluten and they taste amazing! Oh, and if you like cake…they have those too! But what’s more is the variety of the main dishes.
I was very surprised when I saw the recipes for Mediterranean Beef Stew, Creamy Curried-Chicken Soup, Portuguese-Style Venison Stew, and Buffalo Drumettes with Paleo Ranch Dressing (I’ll never buy Ranch again!). The best part of this book is it utilizes the workhorse in my kitchen, my slow-cooker. With two kids and a man to feed, I need to be able to make something substantial that will fill their bellies and be healthy. We’ve wanted to eat healthier and get rid of the bloat and irritability that comes from wheat and processed foods. The recipes from “Paleo Slow Cooker” fit perfectly into my family’s lifestyle. This has definitely changed the way we eat in my household, and so much for the better!!
