Totally a 5 star rating! A copy of Thunder - Stone Braide Chronicles was mailed to me for the purpose of this review. When it arrived I was not sure what to expect.

The River of God by Russell M. Stendal Review

The River of God (Front)

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. The River of God by Russell M. Stendal Review  The River of God by Russell M. Stendal is a great book that will break down the scriptures for you. From Genesis through to Revelation, scripture by scripture. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to scripture reading. I read my scriptures every single day. But, at times it is not easy to know exactly what the scripture writer (or God) is trying to get across to us. Each scripture has a deeper meaning and when you find those meanings your whole outlook on life can change. I love how well Russell M. Stendal dived into each scripture. He broke it all down in a way that had me understanding.....and questioning things about my life. I really loved this book. Russell M. Stendal gave me a deeper meaning of the creation and of Jesus Christ. It really is a great read and one of the best I have read in … [Read more...]
