Waiting for Dawn

I received an electronic copy of Waiting for Dawn by Susan May Warren from Tyndale House Publishers for an honest review. The book is about Lacey Galloway, a contractor for the Department of Defense, who leads a rather predictable life. But news that Sergeant Frist Class Jim Micah is missing in action leads her on a dangerous trek overseas to rescue the man who secretly captured her heart. Although her DOD connections quickly cut through the red tape, she also enlists the help of her ex-boyfriend and Micah's bestfriend, Lieutenant John Montgomery. As they hatch a covert plan to find and rescue Micah, Lacey's feelings are once again torn between the two me. This book is filled with romance, adventure and is a page turner from the start. I enoyed the book all except for the way it ended. Ms. Warren said this book is a prequel to her Team Hope series. I just hope the story continues in her next book.

The Grace of God

I received a copy of Andy Stanley's The Grace of God from Booksneeze. Andy Stanley explores grace shown in the Old and New Testaments. He looks at grace by explaining the story of Grace: being Chosen by Grace, Surprised by Grace, Redeemed by Grace, Ruled by Grace, Rescued by Grace, Sustained by Grace, Puzzled by Grace, Accepted by Grace, Reborn by Grace, Filled by Grace, Saved by Grace and Commissioned by Grace. This book delivers great insight, inspiration, and simple truths in a memorable way. With grace comes faith. Such a strong statement in such an uncertain world.
