Noteworthy Books

by Kristyn Komarnicki

Hundreds of books cross my desk every year. We can’t possibly review all of them. The following recent titles caught my eye and, while I’m not able to assign these to a reviewer, I plan to read them over the coming months. If you read any of them, please send your review to me and we’ll do our best to post it on the PRISM blog. Thanks!

On doubt:

“You can’t be satisfied. Life is difficult. You don’t know the secret.”
“Through the transformative power of grace, Bakker discovers the God who loves and accepts unconditionally, freeing him to ask the hard questions and delve into one of Christianity’s greatest taboos: doubt.”

On service:

A Third Great Awakening awaits Christians who boldly and joyfully embrace broth planks of the Savior’s cross: obedience to God and service to others.
“For any and all Christians who want to bring hope and redemption to their communities.”
“This book is an invitation to create our own social experiments to answer the question ‘What is enough?'”
(Front Line)
“You have more to offer the world than you realize.”

On reaching children:


“Demonstrating the love of God…one child at a time.”
Their Destinies in Christ by Craig Hill (Charisma House)
“You were created to be God’s agent of blessing to your children.”

On the grace of God:


Dirty God: Jesus in the Trenches by Johnnie Moore (Thomas Nelson)
“Grace explained is helpful, but grace experienced changes everything.”
Victim of Grace: When God’s Goodness Prevails by Robin Jones Gunn (Zondervan)
“God, the Relentless Lover, has vigorously sought you. God has instilled dreams in your heart that are grander than you can imagine. But the route to their fulfillment often is through a path you wouldn’t seek.”

    Hi Kristyn. I’d like to recommend another book for your review. It’s a brand new book by Dr. Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, called “Kingdom Woman: Embracing Your Purpose, Power, and Possibilities.” It was their desire in writing it to “challenge women to look higher than where you are to whose you are, and to be transformed by the truth of being a Kingdom Woman.” The book encourages women to set their eyes on Christ and to pursue what God has created them to be. It is true to that goal. It’s an outstanding book for all women. They even have free devotional downloads and information at their website: I hope it blesses you as it has me!
