Major on Minors -- the MInor Prophets

The Unknown Prophets - Newsletter Promo from North Coast Church on Vimeo.

The Minor Prophets sometimes pose major problems to readers--at least until they get the whole picture. And what a picture it is.

Every book of the Bible reveals redemption and contributes to God's story as it unfolds in His book.

Read my article on the Minor Prophets in The Examiner here.

Let's keep on reading those books -- all 66 of them. They just get better and better. (I'm talking about the Bible, of course.)

Just A Minute

Here's a book that makes me shout one loud "Yes!", Just A Minute by Wess Stafford.

Wess Stafford is the CEO and president of Compassion International and since I'm founder and president of Orphans First, what could be more appropriate than to read and promote such a life-impacting book?

Just A Minute is a compilation of true stories and testimonies of people—ordinary people, celebrities and historical figures—whose lives were impacted for good or bad by someone who took “just a minute” to build them up or tear them down through words, action or attitude. The author also showcases the immeasurable reward experienced by those who pour encouragement, godly direction, affection, inspiration, hope . . . into the heart of a child.

You can see the trailer and read my complete review of Just A Minute here in The Examiner.

Read my review. More importantly, read this book. It could change your life and the life of children.
