This is just a delightful little book! Gratitude is (or should be) such an important part of our walk with Christ. I love that it focuses on the positive and doesn’t wander off into any heavy theology. This book would be a nice gift for any Christian woman who likes to be contemplative while coloring! I like to color in it while I pray or listen to a devotional talk. This book is sprinkled with encouraging thoughts and scriptures and has space for writing down your thoughts as you focus on the many things you can be grateful for in your life. I highly recommend it!

The Note-Taker’s Bible, King James Version is just what you’d expect from the title. This Bible has wide margins in which to take notes, and the pages are a tiny bit thicker than normal scripture pages are nowadays which is good so that the ink won’t bleed through quite as easily. It is a red-letter edition. This Bible has a concordance and no other reference material. Overall, this is a great Bible for someone who just wants to take notes while they read or study out of other material.
I think this Bible would make a great gift for teens or adults who like to take notes in their scriptures. The no-nonsense format would be great for someone who is new to the Bible as well.

I’m not new to the Bible or its characters. I thought I knew a fair amount about Abraham…but Charles Swindoll brings Abraham to life in his recent book, Abraham. This isn’t a book that you’ll struggle to read, filled with Old Testament names and places that sound totally foreign. If you’re like me, you’ll learn a lot about Abraham that you didn’t know. Beyond that, you’ll find a treasure trove of sound advice and rich insight in these pages.
With the wisdom only to be found in a long life, filled with the love of the Lord, Chuck Swindoll touches upon issues that face each of us throughout our lives. There are so many lessons to be found in the story of our Patriarch, Abraham. These lessons apply to us today. There are lessons about trusting God, lessons about falling back on our default defenses when we’re stressed, lessons on waiting on God’s timing and not rushing ahead…
This book is going on my “classics” shelf. There are a few books that can be said to be life-changing outside of scripture. This is one of those books. I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is so dense with wisdom! Whether you’re young or old, married or single, male or female, there is sage advice in this book for you. I am so grateful for men and women who have such rich spiritual insight and who are willing to share that insight with us. Thank you, Mr. Swindoll.
