BFB Reviews: The Chamberlain Key by Timothy Smith

What started out as a strange coincident turned out to be something much stranger than Timothy Smith first considered. A simple Bible story suddenly became a rabbit hole type mystery that sent Smith on a wild journey, unlocking a secret code that would rock his world in ways he never dreamed.

But is it true? The question one asks themselves when glancing on the cover, pondering what “The God Code” will reveal, is how accurate are Timothy Smith’s findings? What will happen if they are true?

Sadly, The Chamberlain Key is not some great, lost mystery that has recently been unearthed. Rather, this is a book that should be left alone, itself lost and forgotten.

MyBookLook: The Dawn of Christianity by Robert J. Hutchinson

“What did Jesus do and say, in as little as one year and a maximum of three years, that could possibly have had such an impact? How did the community he somehow gathered together so quickly – made up of semiliterate fishermen, prostitutes, tax collectors, wealthy widows, day labourers, and even Roman soldiers – give birth to the spiritual revolution that became Christianity?”

What makes Christianity so special? What sets it apart from any other religion? These are important questions. But if you dig a little deeper, there are more interesting, more disturbing questions.

How did a movement that changed the world start, when the founder only worked for a maximum of three years? What did this Jesus do to have such an impact that has lasted for thousands of years? What did his followers do to spread this movement from a small Middle Eastern country to almost every corner of the globe? These are the types of questions that The Dawn of Christianity is interested in answering, and in a way that will truly set this book apart.

MyBookLook: Jesus Journey by Trent Sheppard

Was Jesus 100% God, or 100% man? Or did he have a mixture of humanity and divinity, some 50-50 mix? Or 60-40?

This has been a question that has bothered Christians since the days of the Early Church, with Christians falling on different answers. For most Christians, the answer is usually heavy on the divinity, with humanity sprinkled in. Trent Sheppard disagrees. Jesus was not some mixture of divinity and humanity, Jesus was 100% and 100%. But as a reaction to most Christian’s belief in Jesus’ overbearing divinity, Jesus Journey comes to show us how human Jesus really was. Continue reading “MyBookLook: Jesus Journey by Trent Sheppard”

The Red Rose: A Book Of Poems by Cassandra Rivett

“Will this road ever end? Will this road ever be clear? Will he make it to the end of this road, to his destination?” – from The Wanderer

A rose by any other name would still smell that sweet, and a book of poetry called The Red Rose is just as sweet as the flower itself.

Blossoming out of the life and experiences of Cassandra Rivett comes a collection of poems tackling the pain and joy, beauty and bleakness, solitude and community. Continue reading “The Red Rose: A Book Of Poems by Cassandra Rivett”

MyBookLook: Thank You, God, for Grandpa by Amy Parker

It is important to teach kids the importance of thankfulness and grandfathers. The attitude of being grateful for what you have been given is sorely lacking in our modern world, and will only be remedied if the coming generation learns it early. And the disrespect and mistreatment of the older generation has reached a fever pitch. The wisdom and blessings that grandparents, especially grandfathers, offer is something that should never be neglected. And, to do that is to teach children early on how valuable grandfathers are.

So, why not do both, in a large size, brightly illustrated book? Continue reading “MyBookLook: Thank You, God, for Grandpa by Amy Parker”

MyBookLook: How’s Your Soul? by Judah Smith

“In the journey of life, emotions make great companions but terrible leaders.”

‘How are you?’ may seem like an innocent enough question. And ‘I’m fine’ may seem like a perfectly acceptable response. But not for Judah Smith. That answer rang hollow. The pat answer of ‘I’m fine’ wasn’t the truth.

But not getting stuck on the issue of social niceties, Judah wanted to know what was actually wrong with himself, with everyone. If saying we are fine is a hollow answer, what is wrong? What is going on inside that we aren’t fine? How’s Your Soul? Continue reading “MyBookLook: How’s Your Soul? by Judah Smith”
