Image
FEASTING ON THE GOSPELSCYNTHIA A. JARVIS, E. ELIZABETH JOHNSON

With contributions from a diverse and respected group of scholars and pastors, 'Feasting on the Gospels' will include completely new material that covers every single passage in the New Testament Gospels, making it suitable for both lectionary and non-lectionary use. Moreover, these volumes will incorporate the unique format of 'Feasting on the Word', with four perspectives for preachers to choose from for each Gospel passage: theological, pastoral, exegetical, and homiletical.


HUBBY'S REVIEW:
There are two books I read volume 2 and I will say that this will help you very much in your study of the Bible. If you are a Pastor, teacher, these books are also very helpful and books that are just another tool to help you in learning. I got this book from netgalley.com.  I give this 4 stars.  Follow us at:

THE VALLEY

THE VALLEYJOHN RENEHAN

 “You’re going up the Valley.”

Black didn’t know its name, but he knew it lay deeper and higher than any other place Americans had ventured. You had to travel through a network of interlinked valleys, past all the other remote American outposts, just to get to its mouth. Everything about the place was myth and rumor, but one fact was clear: There were many valleys in the mountains of Afghanistan, and most were hard places where people died hard deaths. But there was only one Valley. It was the farthest, and the hardest, and the worst.

When Black, a deskbound admin officer, is sent up the Valley to investigate a warning shot fired by a near-forgotten platoon, he can only see it as the final bureaucratic insult in a short and unhappy Army career. What he doesn’t know is that his investigation puts at risk the centuries-old arrangements that keep this violent land in fragile balance, and will launch a shattering personal odyssey of obsession and discovery as Black rec…

They’re different as night and day…but it’s the right time for love.

Texas Montgomery Mavericks, Book 6

Porchia Summers was born into a family who gave her everything except affection. She acted out until her parents sent her to Whispering Springs before their high-society friends found out about her arrest record.

She builds a good life in Texas, but then the old boyfriend who got her in trouble tracks her down. Desperate to find a way to keep her past and present separate, she places a bid at a bachelor auction on the one man who’ll get her out of town for a few days.
Darren Montgomery is thrilled when Porchia wins him and a week of camping with his entire family in a charity bachelor auction. He’s also curious. He’s been flirting with the town’s sweet, sexy baker for years. Sometimes she flirts back, but she’s never let things go further than that. Darren’s not complaining, but he wonders just what’s going on behind Porchia’s pretty eyes.

COP ON HER DOORSTEPKAREN DOCTOR

In the six years since her husband was killed by S.W.A.T., Carrie Padilla has spent long hours at work, rebuilding a life for herself and her son. The little time she has at home is spent keeping her eight-year-old son out of trouble, but he is all too eager to try to be the man in the house. When a handsome cop shows up on her doorstep, her errant son in tow, Carrie's heart stutters. The sexy Italian cop sets off all kinds of bells in her system, and she knows there's only one thing she can do to save what is left of her family, her husband’s memory, and her heart...avoid her new neighbor at all costs.

S.W.A.T. officer Jake Stafani already lost one little boy to gang violence, the dead boy’s older brother is missing, and Jake's not about to let the same thing happen to a neighbor's son.

Trouble big as all hell.

Retired sheriff’s detective Al Quinn hasn’t spoken to his brother, Maury, in twenty years. When Maury lands in the hospital under suspicious circumstances, though, Al reluctantly abandons his quiet country seclusion to look into the matter. A second attempt to take Maury out drives the brothers back to Al’s lakeside home, where Al knows the territory, but they’re not alone for long. ICE agents demand that Maury rat on his silent partner, city cop Fergie Jergens comes investigating the murders of Maury’s lady friends, and someone takes a match to Al’s house.

Al soon learns his problems are only getting started—his brother’s in trouble on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Caught in a ruthless power struggle between the ICE and Los Zetas, a vicious Mexican mafia bent on ascendancy, Al learns the hard way who he can trust—and who’s willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

With everything he loves on the line, Al will learn jus…

     Last night Russell Westbrook put his name in the record book along the likes of Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, & Isaiah Thomas.  25 points, 20 assists, & 10 rebounds.  According to stats, this is the first triple double with those totals since Magic for the Lakers in 1988.  Westbrook was born in 1988.  Whenever you can be on a list with Oscar Robertson & Magic you know you did something special in Basketball.
    Here’s a name no one talks about in HOCKEY.  Andy Bathgate Hall of Fame for the N.Y. Rangers passed away in Feb. He played when there was only six teams and scored 272 goals.  That record was not broken until 73’.  He played over 12 seasons from 50’ to early 60’s.  Named to the All N.H.L. Squad 4 times when his rivals at right wing were Maurice Richards & Bernie Geoffrion of Montreal & Gordie Howe of the Redwings.  The Rangers were not very good and only made the playoffs 4 times when he was playing.     It was said, “That he was…
