The God Chasers

From  Ginny Pisciotta
Author:  Tommy Tenney
The God Chasers 
Throughout history there have been God chasers – those who, according to the author, are not interested in camping out on some dusty truth known to everyone, but who are after the fresh presence of the Almighty. Tenney invites us to become God chasers too, seeking intimacy with God. He feels that most Christians are just looking to date God – to get what they can from Him without real commitment. Tenney believes that people are hungry for God, they are just not interested in the stale bread and crumbs the church usually offers. I highly recommend this challenging book. It will change the way you look at Christianity.

Thank God for Evolution

From Gina Scaglione:

I stayed up late last night again to read Thank God for Evolution by Michael Dowd. I highly recommend this book to anyone contemplating religion in any way. From the doubters to the highly religious, this book has something for everyone. It actually helped me to realize where I belong, which I had pretty much given up on prior to reading the book. Thank God for Michael Dowd:)

Golden Reads review

From Elaine Pasquali:

The Shack, by Wm. Paul Young

This is a fictionalized account of Mackenzie Allen Philips’ spiritual journey following the brutal abduction and murder of his youngest daughter, Missy. Engulfed by a “Great Sadness,” Mack is surprised to find a note from God. The note invites Mack to spend a weekend with God at the scene of Missy’s murder, the shack. Mack skeptically goes to the shack and seeks an answer to the eternal question, how can God permit unspeakable evil and pain to exist in the world? There are many twists in Mack’s journey and the end of his story is the most surprising twist of all.
