A Cord of Three Strands by Diana Lynn SeveranceA Cord of Three Strands on The Upward Call Blog – Kim Shay is working her way through A Cord of Three Strands: Three Centuries of Christian Love Letters by Diana Lynn Severance. Kim says, “Letter writing is a lost art. Our quick e-mails, pithy tweets and texts, and greeting card brevity doesn’t make for good love letters. Does anyone write love letters any more?”

Words About God: To Help You Worship Him by Nicholas ChoyDanika Cooley Reviews Words About God – Earlier this week Danika Cooley (blogger, author, homeschool mom) shared her thoughts on Words About God by Nicholas Choy. Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

Words about God is a helpful resource – one that’s brightly colored, fun-to-read, with cute illustrations. It’s another must for the theology-for-little-people section of your bookshelf.”

“I have been so impressed by the “A BibleTime Book” series that I plan on purchasing Carine Mackenzie’s other series “Biblewise” for Christmas this year. I highly recommend these books to parents for their children. They are sturdy and well made and cost on average around $3 per book.”

Polycarp: The Crown of Fire by William Chad NewsomPolycarp: The Crown of Fire Reviewed on Home School Book Review – Wayne at the Home School Book Review blog gave Polycarp: The Crown of Fire 5 out of 5 stars. Here’s a bit of what he had to say:

Polycarp: The Crown of Fire serves two important functions for Christians. It not only reminds us of the spiritual strength of those giants of the past on whose shoulders we now stand and to whom we are indebted for so much but also illustrates for us the kind of faith and courage which it is so important for us to develop in case we are ever called on to suffer persecution for the name of Jesus.”
