Book Review: The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer

The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer is a quick read for dealing with big problems.  I remember being overwhelmed by several papers during college and once I started writing, even if what I wrote was thrown out, the paper started flowing.  It was that initial step to get the process going that mattered.  However, many people are neutralized on the first step and fail to attempt what they really want to do.

Book Review: Googling God by John Cox

“Googling God” has a subtitle, “Searching for a faith you can believe in.” At first I thought it might be a possible book an unbeliever could read for evangelistic purposes. What I discovered is that it is much better suited for someone who likes to read, or young in their Christian faith, or has hit several bumps in the road and is questioning God. The last two chapters bring the book into focus. Continue reading

Book Review: National Sunday Law By A. Jan Marcussen

“National Sunday Law” is a book I received in the mail and it said 39. 2 million were in print. So with that many printed, I thought I would quickly read through it. It is printed by the Orthodox Christian Church publication ministry called New Life Publications and Marcussen is a Seventh-Day Adventist minister (researched after reading the book).

The book describes a warning to Christians to return to Sabbath worship and escape from the Catholic Church. While Marcussen uses Scripture for his arguments, Continue reading

Book Review: The Secure Home by Joel M. Skousen

This was the second book loaned to me to get my take on Joel Skousen as an author and projector of sound advice (the first was Strategic Relocation).  This tome (683 pages) is not for the weekend reader of fiction books.  Skousen is an expert on preparation.  He’s devoted his life to preparing for any situation, most of which has not happened and may never happen.  However, for those who may see smoke on the horizon, and a building project in the future, Skousen provides a plethora of ideas on how to be wise about your home investment.

Book Review: Strategic Relocation by Joel Skousen

I was loaned this book to read and found it most interesting.  Skousen seems to ask the question, “Considering multiple threats to our wellbeing…and the political, economic and social environments, where is the best place to live?”  Skousen doesn’t just point to a specific location.  Instead he gives a strategic analysis of global geopolitics, geography and climate, freedoms and politics, crime and standard of living concerns and prospects for war, invasion and potential terrorism.  This is not for the timid of heart. Continue reading

Book Review: Ultimate Questions by John Blanchard

“Ultimate Questions” is an excellent introductory book to the Bible and Christianity. I received it from a recent church I visited. It makes a clear presentation of many initial questions a new believer would have or someone who is searching for answers. The purpose of the book is “Who is God and how do you relate to Him.” Continue reading
