Praying For Your Elephants by Adam Stadtmiller – Chapter 1 and 2 Review

My skepticism was so massive I had trouble walking past people, because of the gravitational forces.

Get the book here: Praying For Your Elephants Adam Stadtmiller Just finished the intro, chapter 1 and chapter 2 of Praying For Your Elephants by Adam Stadtmiller. I went into this book with massive skepticism. My skepticism was so massive I had trouble walking past people, because of the gravitational forces. Everyone has seen them, the prosperity preachers like Joel Olsteen and Joyce Myer, diluting or out right lying about the Gospel and having millions of well meaning or hurting people thinking that if they just say it then God has to do it.

Divine Children book cover

Divine Children by Lucas Kitchen My rating: 4 of 5 stars There are books with complexity and depths best described as epics. There are stories that span multiple books in series.

At first it could have been any ...

|Book Review|Aaron Blakeley

The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Fair warning I am about to draw some odd similarities between authors. I have enjoyed H.P. Lovecrafts style of horror for sometime. Leaving the reader with a since of nihilism. This idea that we are so insignificant and that the things happening in the universe are so unknowable that upon knowing them you loose your mind.
