Lift Him Up Don’t Pull Him Down

Book review by Laura Martin

My book reviewed by Laura Martin.

Laura Martin, daughter of Christ, has diligently blogged over 850 posts proclaiming her understanding and love of God, Jesus, faith and Bible study. For this reason, I asked her to set aside some of her time back in May of 2015, to please review my book.

Laura’s positive response to my writing was much appreciated, so I decided to repost her review.  For those of you who have not yet ordered my book for yourself or a Bible study, her critique my help you with that decision for the new year.  

 My goal is to always transfer thoughts to paper as straightforwardly as Laura does. Thank you, Laura. Continue reading

James, Cephas and John, those esteemed as pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the circumcised. Galatians 2:9 (emphasis added) Continue reading

It made me  wonder what kind of message the owner was trying to shout at the customers. As Christians, there is only one way to view this tee – from outside the store! Continue reading
