The Final Summit by Andy Andrews

I must first start by saying this; never read this book at night. You'll have a difficult time sleeping as your anticipation grows. This book did such a great job of capturing my attention that I wished I didn't have to work the next day so I could stay up all night reading it. What a marvelous book.

First, you are not reading a story; you are reading a journey. Each page, each word is captivating as you enter the world of David Ponder. What is equally amazing is that your mind and soul are being challenged and exercised and you don't even know it.

It is for this reason that I recommend every student graduating this year must make reading this book a priority. The lessons learned will take them far and propel them to new heights.

However, this book is not for students alone. I would dare say that message, which has been forgotten by many, needs to be retrieved and done so soon. It cannot be avoided anymore. Mr. Andrews is calling many to action: will they answer the call? Only time will tell.

Soulprint by Mark Batterson

Having just completed this book, I must say this: READ THIS BOOK. The challenges, insights, and honest approach of this book really get to the heart of its message: what has God created you to do?

Throughout the book Mr. Batterson weaves a masterful work using King David as his prime example. Batterson shows that David was created for a certain purpose and this was brought out throughout this life. It was his destiny; his soulprint.

To live your soulprint brings purpose to your life. This is why I was created; why you were created. Batterson makes this point and makes it well. Thus this book is a must read by those searching, those needing refreshing, and those who may have lost their way.

Sunday, April 17, 2011 Dating by Les & Leslie Parrot

"Online dating is for those who can't get a date the old-fashioned way." Phrases likes these, and other myths about online dating, are what Drs. Parrot & Parrot try to dispel in this book.

The Parrots show that, when used properly, online dating can be a very useful and effective tool for finding that "special someone." It is not to be looked upon as solely for the social misfits. Gone are the stereotypes of online daters being the Quasimodos of the world. Online dating sites are being used by managers, students, blue collars, white collars, university-educated, and high school dropouts.

It is for this reason that this book was written. It gives helpful tips on how to use online dating sites, some pitfalls to avoid, and if online dating is even right for the reader.

However, what I enjoyed from the book was its simplicity. Drs. Parrot and Parrot do not give all the answers but merely good, sound advice on how what online dating can do and what it cannot.

Time With God for Fathers by Jack Countryman

**I received this complimentary copy from The opinions and views are my own.**

This little book is a great book for those that would like some thoughts to meditate upon throughout the day. There is no poignant sayings or witty anecdotes. Rather the book is just some simple, but powerfully introspective-causing, thoughts about being a father. I would recommend that a father read this every morning with their personal devotions.
