A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution That Changed The World - Review



Book Description:


When Pontius Pilate ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, he thought he was putting an end to the Jewish uprising that had been threatening the authority of the Roman Empire. What Pilate didn’t realize, however, was that real revolution was just getting started.

Based on the epic NBC television series, A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution that Changed the World is a sweeping Biblical narrative that brings the political intrigue, religious persecution, and emotional turmoil of the Book of Acts to life in stunning, vibrant detail. Beginning with the crucifixion, NYT best-selling author and Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah chronicles the tumultuous struggles of Christ’s disciples following the Resurrection. From the brutal stoning of Stephen and Saul’s radical conversion, through the unyielding persecution of Peter and the relentless wrath of Pilate, Jeremiah paints a magnificent portrait of the political and religious upheaval that led to the formation of the early Church.

Complete with helpful background information about the characters, culture, and traditions included in the television series, A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution That Changed the World is not only a riveting, action-packed read, it is also an illuminating exploration of one of the most significant chapters in world history.


My Review:

I enjoyed reading this book. It is filled with a great deal of history and easy to read. The first two chapters give history regarding the death and resurrection of Christ. The book goes into great detail to explain what took place. 

This book is based on the tv series, however I am happy I decided to read the book before watching the shows. 

There are many scriptures from the Bible which is used to support the text written. Another great reason to read the book.. you know you are receiving correct information.  

I highly recommend A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution That Changed The World. I'm sure you would enjoyed it also!! 






God Made You Special - Book Review




Another wonderful book by: Mike Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears - God Made You Special! All of my children (as well as myself) have enjoyed The Berenstain Bears for years. We were overjoyed for the chance to review another wonderful book about this sweet bear family! 

Book Description:: 

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
Matthew 5:8
In this newest 8x8 softcover title in the Berenstain Bears Living Lights collection, the Bruins join the Bear family for a cookout and bring their cousin Tommy along. It isn’t long before the cubs start up a game of baseball and Sister soon notices that Tommy doesn’t play like the rest of the group. When Sister asks about Tommy, Mama takes the opportunity to talk to Sister about how God makes each of us unique in our own way. And that we all have special gifts and talents to share with the folks around us.


We love this book! I believe it will help children to see that God made each person special in their own way. God loves each and everyone of us. And He wants us to love one another. 

I love in this book the way the children treated Tommy. God created him in a special way and the cubs learn to love him and learn from him.... to see his happiness and joy! 

This is another great Berenstain Bear book and I'm sure it will be enjoyed by many!!
