Ok, I have some serious things to announce:


No, it's not a get-rick quick scheme. But some of the blogs I follow are having giveaways. One of them gives me an additional chance to win by mentioning their giveaway. One of them lives in my house, and I like to make her happy. So, here's the links: is giving away a copy of BibleWorks 8 this week! Check it out soon. Or procrastinate, since my chances of winning are better if you don't. You'll need to read the question about what new feature has been added in BibleWorks 8, so follow their link to BibleWorks to find out. (In case you're wondering, giveaways like this usually are a mutual promotion deal. is given the software to giveaway to drive their traffic, while BibleWorks has them structure the giveaway to drive traffic to their site. The hope being that if you don't win, you'll be super-impressed with what you learn looking up the features that you'll buy it. I would, if my computer would run it!)

The other giveaway:

My wife, Ann, has been doing book reviews for various authors and publishers. Right now, she's giving away a copy of Kathi Macias's book How can I run a tight ship when I'm surrounded by loose cannons? It's primarily a women's book, but, men, what better gift to get your wife than a book that's encouraging AND free? So, click through, read, and comment.

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
