A Year of Living Prayerfully

Jared Brock has showed us all how to revive our prayer lives in this funny and informational book on how and why people pray. A Year of Living Prayerfully by Jared Brock was great because he visited so many interesting places and people. While reading it you will thoroughly enjoy all the stories. It will make you think you are right there while it is taking place. Brock writes about his personal journey on what prayer should be with a variety of different religious and non-religious figures. He is a very unconventional guy that travels across the globe to gain a closer relationship with the Lord. 

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be entertained and challenged to grow deeper spiritually. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. 

My Battle Against Hitler Book Review

Dietrich Von Hildbrand wrote the book My Battle Against Hitler. Hildebrand was a German Roman Catholic philosopher-theologian who, early on, warned and wrote against the rise of Nazism. He was a very intelligent and driven man. Hildbrand was a Catholic who was opposed to the Third Riech. He personal story showed the true evils that were unfolding in his time, which is very close to what is happening in America today. The book was very educational, but also motivating the reader to be brave and stand up for what is right.

I would recommend this to anyone that has an interest in history. The book did start out a little slow, but it picked up. I was given this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
