This in-depth re-telling of the story helps to have a better understanding of Christ coming to the world to save us all.

Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary {Book Review}


Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary is an excellent resource if you want a deeper look into the Bible. I feel it’s important that every believer in Christ have a source such as this to aid in personal as well as group study of The Holy Bible. This dictionary is newly updated and has an enormous amount of information. I can definitely tell a lot of thought and work went into producing it!

Everything from full color maps, more than 500 hundred photographs, over 7,000 up-to-date entires, pronunciation guides, cross references to major translations, Visual Survey of the Bible from The Open Bible is packed in! The type is also enlarged for ease of reading. I for one really appreciate that I can read the words without glasses or straining my eyes.


There’s a very helpful guide that features five steps in how to better study the Bible using this dictionary! Having this included is a great feature. I think anyone using this book wouldn’t want to skip it!
P1170063I’m finding this dictionary extremely useful in my own personal study and can only imagine how helpful it would be to Pastor, Sunday School Teacher, or Community group Leader. I’ll be using this in Bible studies during homeschooling with my children as well. Highly recommend it!

Graham Blanchard & Callie Grant Books: Little Seed: A Life, Close As A Breath, and Jesus Saves Me {Book Review}

gblogoI was recently given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon and spread the news on three Christ centered books written specifically for children by Graham Blanchard & Callie Grant. Each of the three titles that were sent along my son and daughter enjoyed quite a bit. Each of the books each have a specific purpose and come from certain lines that in different ways nurtures and has potential to grow the spiritual development of a child. There’s nothing more important than for a child to come to know certain aspects of their Saviour whether it be just scratching the surface or going much deeper. I guarantee these titles will invoke many Christ-filled conversations. Continue reading
