My Heart Will Not Be Troubled

...A Bible study pamphlet, this would probably be useful to church groups. It's well-presented, nicely formatted and edited and would work as a good starting point for discussion....

I saw the cover. I thought light reading. I saw the description. I cringed, thinking PLR. Fortunately it isn’t, although I’d have appreciated knowing this was a Christian tract before I picked it up. “The year of 2016 was one of the hardest of my life.” was one of the first sentences, and what kept me reading and I am sure many other readers will relate. However this is actually a Bible study tract rather than a full Christian testimonial, complete with study questions.

I am uncertain whether this was based on the views of a particular group of Christians e.g. Baptist or Born-again, which may conflict with the views of other Protestant groups. While I won’t go into them all there are a few issues, e.g. loc 85 covering marriage, divorce, and adultery mentions Matthew but not 1 Corinthians 7:15: “But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved”.

As a studyguide, this would probably be useful to church groups. It’s well-presented, nicely formatted and edited and would work as a good talking point even if the particular group did not agree with all interpretations. It will have very limited interest to others however.

  • The Christmas Angels
    The sentiments may be appreciated, but the formatting, grammar, and layout are not. Please get an editor or proof-reader.
  • Lost and Found, Stories of Christmas
    Overall this is a short book of Christmas stories, heartwarming, sweet, and designed to remind people that there are good people in the world. Perfect for the season.
  • The Nicest Guy in Hell
    For anyone expecting a humourous book, particularly given the cover and blurb, you will be very disappointed. I certainly was. Riddled with spelling, grammar, and formatting errors.
