Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus is beyond an entertaining or educational experience. It’s beyond a bible study. It’s the kind of book you keep close for reference, soaking in every word. Lois Tverberg writes like no one else I’ve read. Her talent and commitment for showing the truth in scripture with the authenticity and richness of Jewish culture creates a full experience for the reader. Understanding Jewish tradition and perspective are vital, and this book begins with a powerful invitation. “It’s entirely possible for a person to expend a great deal of energy getting to a destination, yet arrive there with their head and thoughts remaining at the original point of departure.” (Page 25).
Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus is the best investment I’ve made, and I give this book five out of five stars. It’s a must read.

Doctor’s Dilemma is another great medical suspense book by Dr. Richard L. Mabry. Since I listened to the audiobook version of the story, I can add that the narration was well done. I preferred the male narrator voice as opposed to the female voices that have narrated Dr. Mabry’s previous books.
You’ve got to feel for poor Dr. Tyler Gentry. Buried in student loans and in need of financial help, he’s found himself caught in a less than desirable situation. The option to be part of a booming practice seemed perfect for his dire straits. But as the saying goes when something looks too good to be true, it usually is. Murder, deception and the fight to survive kept the story high in suspense. I enjoyed Doctor’s Dilemma and would recommend any of Dr. Mabry’s books.

Julie Cantrell has told another outstanding story in her book, Perennials. I must admit I could not wait to read this one and I devoured it in no time. The heart wrenching story of a family torn apart over the years and forced to face hard painful trials.
I was rooting for Eva from the beginning and though there were times I wanted her to react differently, her strength in her quiet responses was what made her character so powerful. The love in the Sutherland family was incomparable. The kind of people you wish lived next door because they would provide a cup of iced tea and wisdom in every interaction.
Perennials is totally worth every single second spent reading it. Definitely a five out of five stars.
