Recommended Blog Post I Read

I enjoyed reading a fine blogpost about books by Scott Pauley here: http://scottpauley.wordpress.com/2012/03/13/a-few-thoughts-on-books/

He discusses his influences and where he is today in his thinking about a personal library. Then he proceeds to give advice. Since he is Vice President at Crown College in Powell, Tennessee, I'm sure he desires to impact students who will be in the ministry. Still, what he says applies to us all.

He gives pointers on sifting through options as there are so many books on any given subject. He reminds us where to keep the Bible in regards to the books we gather about the Bible. Then perhaps best of all, he offers suggestions on how to get the most out of your books. I encourage you to read his blogpost as he has said things that, in my judgment, need to be said.

And The Winner Is...

Pastor Jerry Thrower


Congratulations Pastor Thrower. You won a free copy of "Healing Your Church Hurts" by Stephen Mansfield" from the publisher. Please send me your mailing address.

I assigned each entrant a number (plus assigning any extra entries a person doing one of the things that qualified a separate number) and used an online random number generator to select the winner.

A big thanks to all who participated.

Since the review for the book "Healing Your Church Hurts", I have written reviews for 2 volumes from different publishers that some of you might find interesting:

"The Jesus We Missed" http://reaganreview.blogspot.com/2012/02/jesus-we-missed-by-reardon-book-review.html

and "How To Read The Bible Through The Jesus Lens" http://reaganreview.blogspot.com/2012/02/jesus-we-missed-by-reardon-book-review.html

It's worked out that I will be reviewing a few titles for Kregel and possibly Baker. These publishers publish some of the better Bible study books out there. These, with the others I'm working with, should provide me some great books I will in turn be able to tell you about in the days ahead. I still have some other blogs that I mentioned earlier that I will be putting on too. I intend to provide some more blogs from guest bloggers too.

Again, thank you for your support.
