Judge by R.J. Larson Book Review

Standard

“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 to the Infinite to worship a new goddess. (Taken From Chapters.ca)”

Honestly, I was absolutely ecstatic that this book was up for the blogger review program. I was so absolutely excited. Why? Because a while ago, there was a book that had come up called Prophet (Book 1 in this series) and I’ll be honest, girl main character and everything, really wasn’t my cup of tea, but the description of it sounded really good. When I read it, I was amazed and blown away by it, a book that captivates and draws you in to it. and then I found out there was a second book and I was thinking about how cool it would be  to read it.

So I was excited and I was even more excited when I found out I was getting Judge! The book is absolutely amazing. Though if you want to  read this I would recommend you reading the first book Prophet.

Such an absolute page turner! I was captivated by the whole book. Every detail of everything has been written down and I absolutely imagined this as a movie as I read it. R.J. Larson has written a riveting book that anyone would enjoy read that likes adventure books with action in it. I found nothing wrong with this book except a few parts where I was like *Gasp* I was definitely drawn to the characters and oh my, it was just a great book overall. Everything you would want in a book is in this.

As We See the Adventure progressing through the book, it definitely gets better. Sometimes I couldn’t put it down because I’d want to know what happens next!

A Definite recommendation for anyone!

Standard

“Fascinating Accounts of Modern-Day Miracles

Does God still play an active role in the world today? Readers are thrilled to discover that yes, he does, showing himself in countless miracles and unexplained events. In their signature style, trusted pastor Jim Garlow and writer Keith Wall tap into readers” fascination with miracles by gathering exciting, credible true stories of God”s supernatural activities in the lives of everyday people. These stories will encourage and inspire, making this a great gift or impulse buy.” (Description taken from Chapters.ca)

Do Miracles still exist today? Do we still believe in them? If the answer is yes, then this is a great book to read, as it just encourages you, and if your ever doubting about this topic, then take a read of this, and you might actually be surprised.

Miracles don’t always happen as the big even like  they do in the bible, they can be something small. They still happen. To anyone and everyone. You might not that something happening in your life is a miracle, but it is.

James L. Garlow and Keith Wall have collected some absolutely amazing stories from real people like you and me going through a whole range of topics. I just really like real life, true, personal stories because you can relate to them, maybe not to the exact event, but you can probably think of something in your life that’s happened and be like “Hey! that was a Miracle.”

Both of these men have done just an outstanding job collecting all of the stories here just like in another book that they’ve authored Miracles Are For Real. (Which I haven’t read yet.)

Real Life stories just bring things home for me, that I can relate to and like like woah. This book definitely moved me, and I definitely think this book will move you too.

James L. Garlow is the coauthor of Cracking DaVinci’s Code, with a half million copies in print. He is the senior pastor of Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego and a speaker at pastors’ and leaders’ conferences.

Keith Wall, a twenty-year publishing veteran, has served as an editor for Focus on the Family, Multnomah, and David C. Cook. He currently writes full time in collaboration with several bestselling authors.
