    Right now I'm reading The Power of a Praying Husband and using it as my daily quiet time as well. I use my Bible in conjunction with this of course.

    Me and my wife together are reading the book Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend.

    There is a book in the Treasure Room here that I have been meaning to read for several years. Yesterday I checked it out and started reading. On a whim I searched google books and found that the entire book is there free to download and read. If you have an interest on the life of Christians in the past you would find this book of interest.

    The title is:

    An English Girl's Account of a Moravian Community in the Black Forest
    The book was published in 1860.

    The link is:

    Reed, D. R. (2007). Mission to Canaan. Enumclaw, WA: Pleasant Word.



    This fictional novel is self-published. I stopped by the author's booth at the Kentucky Book Fair (fall, 2008) and briefly discussed the research he conducted before writing the book. At the end of our discussion, he autographed my copy. A very nice, soft-spoken gentleman.

    Now, a few years later (like many book purchases), I am getting around to this book. The reading is light and exciting--good for boys and girls of all ages.



    The author wrote the following in the front of my copy.

    11-15-08

    Bob, I hope you enjoy this adventure story.

    D. R. Reed



    From the back cover of the book . . .

    Twelve men set out on a covert mission that would impact the future of their race. Commissioned by the great Patriarch Moses, Joshua and his men were to bring back reports on the land God told them to conquer, a land “flowing with milk and honey.”

    Based on biblical fact, Mission to Canaan elaborates on the story of the forty days these determined men spent spying on the Promised Land.Considered as bandits and suffering temporary captivity, the men faced constant danger. Day after day they moved quickly and silently through their destined homeland, gathering information about the local defenses in advance of the invasion by the people of Moses.

    They returned with tales of giant men, abominable religious practices, and abundant resources. The success of the proposed incursion was doubted by many of the men but Joshua stood firm––God’s promises were true.

    . . .

    In the style of Jack London and Edgar Rice Burroughs, author Dallas Ray Reed provides the reader with classic tales of a noble quest. His military service and many travels in Europe and the Middle East have given the former college professor an insider's feel for the adventure tales of Mission to Canaan.

    Religion / Biblical Biography / Old Testament
    ISBN-13: 978-1-4141-0914-5
    ISBN-10: 1-4141-0914-8​



    You can order the book direct from Pleasant Word or ChristianBook.com.

    One Man's War by Tommy LaMore.

    The memoirs of LaMore's experiences in WW II, first as a tail gunner in a B-17, then as a prisoner of war of the Germans, his escape and his travels with the Russian army until the end of the war. He was with a Russian unit that was largely made up of the Mongolian Terror Soldiers. You did not want to meet them in battle. Even the hardened SS were afraid of these soldiers.

    Courage To Stand by former Minnesota governor and potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate, Tim Pawlenty. I am about 37% of the way through it. A very interesting autobiography.

    About three quarters of the way through Arthur Schlesinger's The Age of Jackson. Just finished the chapter on the Jacksonian era and religion and on the maturing of the concept of the separation of church and state.

    This book has shown me how little I know about economics!

    Doctor Goebbels / His Life and Death by Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel.

    A biography of the Nazi propagandist. He was a real piece of work.

    The entire hierarchy of the Nazi party was a group of mental cases who gained power.

    I just finished:

    The Assassination of Reinhard Heydrich.

    Heydrich is still called "The Butcher of Prague."

    "The Story Tellers Daughter," by Saira Shah

    Tough read.

    Two reviews follow, one from a reader on Amazon and one from Publishers Weekly.

    Ever read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, by William Shirer? Should be required reading.
