Book Recommendation

I am astounded as I talk to people how much time is being wasted on frivolous activities. The Bible exhorts us in Ephesians 5:16 that we should be “making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” We need to redeem our time for the glory of God.


I found Tim Challies book, Do More Better, to be a real answer to helping us redeem our time for the glory of God. He gives you practical ways to be more efficient and to eliminate time-wasting activity.


If you want to do more for the glory of God, I would encourage you to get this book.

Worry seems to plague Christians just as much as it does non-Christians. But God has told us to be anxious for nothing. How do we be obedient to God, but still deal with the trials and troubles that come upon us in everyday life?

This month, I want to recommend Winfred Nealy’s book, How to Overcome Worry. Dr. Nealy takes a biblical approach to the problems of worry and anxiety and provides practical guidance in how we can find the peace of God in our lives.
