    Book reviews on any books listed are my own opinions.

  • How to Win Over Depression by Tim LaHaye
    Tim goes over some of the symptoms, cycles, causes, and cures of depression. He reviews the place of anger with regard to depression. He concludes that the primary cause of depression is self-pity and offers concrete examples and methods of how to conquer self-pity and depression. I heartily recommend this book since using his methods in 1975 I got rid of an ulcer within two weeks that I had had for nine months.
  • The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
    This book tells how to express heartfelt commitment to your mate. Dr. Chapman tells how everyone needs to be loved through some variation of five different methods: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, Acts of Service, or Physical Touch. When we don't receive these from our spouse, we feel unloved. Likewise, if we want our spouse to love us we must relate to them according to the way they receive love, which may not necessarily be the way we want to be loved. Relating to others this way is different than the "in love" experience that people go through when they get married

  • Left Behind by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins
    This is a series, currently up to 11 books, that tells the stories of a group of people who were not Christians when Jesus took all the believers to heaven in the Rapture as mentioned in 1 Thessalonians:

  • 1 Thess 4:13-18
    But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    After accepting Christ as their Savior they form a "Tribulation Force" to fight the AntiChrist, and to try to win as many people as possible to Christ and eternal life.

  • Left Behind, The Kids  by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins
    Adults are not the only ones left behind, kids are also.  These are written at a child's level, and are in smaller, bite size chunks (i.e. it takes four of the kids books to equal one of the adult Left Behind books.

  • Final Gifts by Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelly
    This book tells about how to minister to the dying and terminally ill.  It tells about the stages one  goes through and how to make it easier.  It tells how you can tell the final signs of  dying and so forth.  I recommend it.  I learned about it on a pancreatic cancer discussion group. (I have chronic pancreatitis and was trying to find out all I could about pancreatic problems since some of the symptoms are the same.)

  • Bend in the Road by David Jeremiah
    This book by David Jeremiah tells about his life when he found out he had cancer, fought it into remission, and then had it come back.  It is a great support book for those going through physical problems.
