The NOTICER by ANDY ANDREWS

Monday, April 27th, 2009

What a book!  Andy Andrews has written one of the most inspirational books ever.  It is all about perspective and encouragement.  This book is helpful to anyone that will take the few hours to read it and each scenario can be self applied.  I use the word scenario, but this is bo0ok is based on a true story.

Perspective is the main thought and advice of Jones, the Noticer.  He appears out of nowhere in this small town to give advice and help to several of the citizens of Orange Beach, Alabama.  Usually one has to do their own thinking.  Jones only plants the seeds for thought.  This book is about everyday happenings, either to you or someone you know.

I will read this book again!  The book was very interesting and I could apply much of the content to myself.  I highly recommend The Noticer to anyone who may be having problems,  even to those that think they have the world by the tail, or if one just needs a good book to read.

CHRONOLOGICAL STUDY BIBLE

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

I received for review the New King James Version Chronological Study Bible.  This is my first experience with a chronological Bible and was not exactly what I expected.  I thought that each book of the Bible in its entirety would be put in order.  Of course, that is not the time sequence.

I look forward to exploring the Bible itself and the many notes made within the pages of the scripture.   In addition to this, information galore is contained in the Cultural and Historical Topics, over 17 pages of glossary, almost 200 pages of concordance and last but not least is the index of Scriptural passages.  Also included are several maps.

I probably would not have bought this Bible at a Book Store, but now that I have it, I will definately use it when studying my Sunday School lessons  and other times when I want to do more than read my Bible.

I would like larger print.
