manafest-fighter-bookChristopher Greenwood, AKA Manafest, is a recording artist from Ontario, Canada. his first book is Fighter: Five Keys to Conquering Fear and Reaching your Dreams.

it’s a wonderful read. it’s part autobiography, part self-help/advice/inspirational. it’s an inside look at aspects of the music industry. it’s part spiritual and Biblical. Fighter is an excellent book.

without giving away too much, the five keys, what Manafest calls the anatomy of a fighter, are courage, perseverance, mindset, discipline, and willpower. with stories and reflections on each key, Manafest shows the importance of each.

“The purpose of this book is to inspire you to conquer your fears and take action,” Manafest writes. his five keys are a great place to start on any journey.

read Fighter, be a fighter.

age of the spiritPhyllis Tickle is the author of several books, including, but not limited to, The Great Emergence and Emergence Christianity. her latest book is a collaboration with Jon M. Sweeney entitled The Age of the Spirit: How The Ghost of an Ancient Controversy Is Shaping The Church.

the book is wonderful. Tickle and Sweeney are a delight to read. at this point i’ll read anything Phylllis Tickle writes.

The Age of the Spirit is part Church history, part theology, part philosophy of religion. it’s deeply theological. it looks at the Trinity and the Holy Spirit through the time frame of the Church and the implications of creeds and councils.

read The Age of the Spirit.

brain SWITCH ON YOUR BRAIN: The Key to PEAK HAPPINESS, THINKING, and HEALTH was written by Dr. Caroline Leaf.

Leaf is a communication pathologist and audiologist. since 1985, she has worked in the area of cognitive neuroscience.

SWITCH ON YOUR BRAIN is well written, insightful, and Biblical. in fact, her application of Scripture is very strong.

the book features her 21-day brain detox plan.

her citations and research is exceptional.

SWITCH ON YOUR BRAIN is a wonderful book. i highly recommend it for personal health-care, growth, or simply an engaging read.

Fully Alive

June 30, 2013

9780801015304 Fully Alive: A Biblical Vision of Gender That Frees Men and Women to Live Beyond Stereotypes was written by Dr. Larry Crabb, bestselling author of Finding God and Inside Out.

Crabb is a well-known psychologist, conference and seminar speaker, Bible teacher, author, and the founder and director of NewWay Ministries. for additional information, see

Fully Alive is joining the egalitarian/complimentarian debate/conversation that the Church has been having for years. both sides claim Biblical authority. so… it’s not the Bible… it’s the way we read and interpret the Bible.

i am egalitarian… and i believe the Bible is too.

Fully Alive is another contribution to this debate. Crabb is a good writer and writes from the perspective of a psychologist, so that’s an interesting spin to this debate.

it’s well worth reading. check it out.
