Awesome book! I first read this book in early to mid 1990's. Fell in love with it right from the start. He doesn't pull any punches. It is something that just talks about things that I didn't think about, or may notice, or thought were a big enough of a deal to address. I read the book every few years just to keep reminding myself of what he spoke of. Later when audio books came out I bought that version on tape also and started to make it a bi-annual event to listen to it on the way to and... Continue Reading →
Very good introduction to Systematic Theology. Well written and easy to understand. I used some of it for my Doctrinal Outline settings.
Was the text book for one of my wife's college courses.

Nice book for a causal reading to get you to think about Heaven. Mr. Lucado's early work I liked, but was guarded about. His thinking is in no way aligned with mine. Knowing that I don't suggest this author for new born Christians due to the ability to be drawn away from the truth. For mature Christians I think his early works is a nice way of getting you to visualize different aspects of things the Bible teaches about.

Nice book on a subject taught a lot. Nice easy read. A nice amount of doctrinal information. Not as light a read as Wiersbe's "Be" books but not super hard to understand. I would say good for a 3 or 4 year old in Christ. Mr. Morgan has a lot of his stuff in writing and this is one of his best.
About the Author
G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945) was a leading Bible expositor in England and the United States. Despite a lack of substantial formal training, Morgan was a prolific writer and teacher. Ordained into the Congregational ministry, he was the pastor of Westminster Chapel, London (1904-17 and 1933-45). Morgan also conducted two very successful teaching tours in the United States, including work with D. L. Moody's ministry.
You might be wondering why a commentary is in a book review. Because you should read this set of books as though it is a book. It can be used as a commentary but it really is set as a reading book. It is very enjoyable to just read through his thoughts on the whole New Testament. Definitely a good read for someone around a year or two old in Christ. Good general foundational layout of the whole Bible. Nothing real deep but a lot of info.
Great Book, possible the best I have read this year so far.
At 43% I think it is the lawyer who killed Dad. Abby somehow found out and was killed, and it might be because of a crush on Mom. Taylor is looking into her dad. Jonathan could be it but doesn't fit as well. Zeke is a distraction.
At 64% it is mentioned that Pete has a great memory and been to places Taylor has been. Would have been too young to kill Dad. Are we looking at 2 different criminals.
I say this because she did an awesome job giving little tid-bits here and there on the case. You couldn't see everything too early but enough to keep going along with it. There are some other story lines that are hinted at in the book and I hope they are carried over into the next books if not the actual story.

Nice 2nd book. Nice carry over from book 1 in series, but I don't think reading book 1 is a necessity. Again I liked the interaction between the main characters. Little spoiler - I still am not too sure on my feelings about a novice criminal being able to tail a seasoned investigator without being noticed. If it was a full P.I. or ex-police officer it would be a turn off, but this guy is in a sense a nerd, not a field officer, even though she makes him out to be back up for FBI agent and ex-sniper guy. That's why I don't know how I feel about it. The story around the photographer was nice and real sounding. The reason they broke up was understandable and expected. Nice how the story wasn't only about them, the other people in the agency are evolved, and since we now have this book we have insights into the next books relationship.

Nicely done book.
I gave it lower than 4 stars only because of the type of people that were the criminals. I figured out about half way through that there were multiple criminals and that there was a stalker and a killer which were two different people. I didn't get that there were actually 3. That was fine, but at the end the 2nd stalker, which really was the 1st stalker, could ditch a seasoned-trained bodyguard (ex police) with ease, move through a huge church with security cameras. The killer could sneak up on a seasoned-trained bodyguard and actual police. This is unrealistic, I know it is a book, but if you go through the hassle of putting it in the real world, with real locations, with real police forces, it should be realistic criminals.
And they way that the bodyguards didn't do checks on things is amazing. They are suppose to be pretty good, but they don't even do vehicle sweeps. After someone tries to blow you up, you would think they are checking everything, but no. Even towards the end, they don't do a sweep of the boat even after there was an intruder on the property the night before. It was a real shame about these missteps because the rest of the book was great. But if you can't finish the book right then all the rest falls flat.
