Review on Marry Wisely, Marry Well by Ernie Baker

Standard

Marriage as one of life’s most long lasting relationships affects quite a bit of the adult to later years of our lives. It is indeed wise and profitable to think carefully before jumping onto the bandwagon. However, the dilemma sometimes comes from our idea of the economic concept called “scarcity” – would the good vegetables be taken by the time I take too long to consider?

This book focuses on how to build up wisdom which is necessary for marrying well to avoid much heartache and complications well later on. I might say there is indeed quite a lot of wisdom here and the author does not give you pet answers, but gives you the tools and methods to evaluate and from the perspective of knowing who God is and how He provides, guides us and gives us wisdom. I love the wisdom found in this pages and would look forward to more books from this author in the future. Recommend those intending to get into marriage in near/far future to read this book and get wisdom from this really biblically-based book which has also been backed with author’s own working experiences both knowing God and in marriage.

Review on Good and Angry by David Powlison

Standard

“…In your anger, do not sin: do not let the sun go down while you are still angry…”

Are you troubled over your anger and wondering if you can still be a good and faithful follower of Christ?

You could do well to read the book Good and Angry by David Powlison.

I like how the author gives us guidelines on how to read/use this book, making the learning interactive and hence applicable and impact-inducing. Guiding questions are asked at end of each chapter to help you reflect after reading about others’ journeys and how the author digests/understands the situation. The language is personable and easy to relate to, perhaps just one suggestion, this book could reach an even higher potential if it has more bible content within. Perhaps in future releases or versions, the author could try adding this in. However, this could be not the author’s intention in the first place, and the book serves well as a view into the author, a fellow believer’s journey in handling anger in relation to his relationship with our Creator God. Read it like a journal and it will do you great solace, inspiration and help.
