I know it has been a while since I posted something, but life has been somewhat hectic in recent months and the blog has had to take a backseat. I will try to post more frequently, but my schedule is still pretty well packed for the next few months. Nevertheless, I felt the need to say something about the books I have written, and just say with a grin that if you are still looking for that last minute gift… you could always purchase one of my books from Amazon.com
Rules to Live By: Sermons on the Ten Commandments
The contents of this first book are pretty self explanatory.
Starting Over: From Ruins to Rebirth
This second book I wrote for my teenage son while I was out of the country for an extended period of time. The book deals with a range of topics from a Christian perspective. The story follows two siblings traveling alone across what used to be the United States. The world as we know it today had been ravished by war and only small pockets of people remained. As this brother and sister pair travel along they run into various situations and have numerous conversations that lead to discussions of the Christian faith. There is some violence in the book, but there is no foul language, and there is plenty of content to encourage further discussion about the intersection of Christianity and the world around us.
Traveler: One Girl’s Amazing Journey of Spiritual Discovery
This final book was also written while I was out of the country. It was written for my daughter and is aimed at the 10-12 year old age range. The main character of the book travels to various places around the globe thanks to a very special playhouse in her room. Along the way, she is exposed to Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. In her conversations with people from other countries, her Sunday School teacher, and her parents, she learns something about culture, other world religions, and how Christianity stands apart. The book is a great tool for conversation around the dinner table. If you would like to read a review of the book, click here.
Until my next post, have a Merry Christmas!

Great news folks! Christianaudio.com offers a free download each month to registered users. This month, the audiobook is I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist. This is a spectacular deal. Frank Turek and Norman Geisler do a superb job in this book of laying out a case for the Christian faith. I had the pleasure of reading this book, along with J. Warner Wallace’s Cold Case Christianity (Amazon.com or Christianbook.com)this past summer, and I must say that I enjoyed both books tremendously.
Christianaudio.com is a wonderful source for all sorts of Christian audio books. If you like, you can sign up for a membership and receive a certain number of credits each month to put toward audio books. However, if you just want to purchase an audio book, and do not care for a membership that comes with a monthly payment, then you can always make single purchases.
I am in no way connected with the website, but I do feel it is important to let people know of such businesses. The one beef that I have with Christianaudio.com is that they do not have an Android app. This was a huge turn off before I got an iPhone, which they do have an app for.
Anyhow, I hope that you take a moment to check out the site and consider downloading the book.
