Book Review: “We Chose Life: Why You Should Too” by Anthony Horvath

Book Review by Mary Ann Kreitzer It’s a parent’s worst nightmare — hearing the words, “You have a very sick child.” For a dad, it’s particularly difficult because his job, besides providing materially for his family, is to protect his loved ones from harm. But when illness strikes a child, a dad often stands helpless […]

Book Review: Elizabeth Bettina and It Happened in Italy

For a homespun story of great historical value, I submit Mrs. Bettina’s It Happened in Italy. Given current trends in America, Europe, and the world at large, I greatly fear that a hundred year’s hence there will be need for books documenting humanity’s bravery in the face of unadulterated murderous evil. I suspect that here too the story will be the same: the most educated people on the planet created and carried out their calamities… and the ‘uneducated’ simple folks tried to stop them.

Breathtaking: One Woman’s Fight to Live and Find Hope in the Face of Certain Death. A Review of Amber Nicole Metz’s Book, “Breathtaking”

I have in my hands Amber Nicole Metz’s “Breathtaking.” Amber has been battling cystic fibrosis for her entire life. After nineteen years, her lungs were useless and needed to be replaced. The book is a collection of letters and emails documenting her time as she waited for the double lung transplant. One would expect that being so near to death for so long that Amber would have descended into a morbid outlook on life. The back of the book calls her personal testimony “A modern-day twist on C.S. Lewis’ A Grief Observed.” That book really was dark! Even if it was edifying and comforting, it was dark. Amber’s testimony is filled with hope and light. “Breathtaking” is an encouragement to all who struggle against circumstance and points the way to Amber’s source: God himself.

A Review of Antony Flew’s “God and Philosophy.”

This is not your normal review. I set aside my copy of Flew’s “God and Philosophy” to re-read for the purposes of writing this review and it has disappeared. 10 to 1, a certain other adult in the house ‘put it where it belong’ which is why I can no longer find it. So, I […]
