A Street Dog’s Story

A Street Dog’s Story is a children’s book about Labi (short for la biche which is French for deer) the dog rescued by U.S. diplomats  Tracy and Eric Whittington Image of Eric and Tracy while they were working in Africa.

It starts off heart breaking but ends on a very positive note. It is a delightful story with fun drawings of Labi and her adventures.

There are books that are cute and fun to read, and there are books that bring awareness about things that shouldn’t be. A Street Dog’s Story combines both functions. It is written to bring awareness of the plight of animals that don’t have the security and love of having a family but it is done in a way that shows with love and care things can be better.

I enjoyed reading A Street Dog’s Story and believe animal lovers all around the world will find a special place for Labi and her mission in their hearts.

It is a short story only thirty-seven pages long, written for children, that adults will enjoy reading too.

All Through The Night by Davis Bunn

What does a Christian retirement community, a woman preacher, an ex cop, a wealthy philanthropist, and streetwise youth have in common?  Wayne Grusza, a former special ops soldier turned good Samaritan accountant.  The Christian retirement community hires Wayne as an accountant but he soon finds himself with a number of mysteries on his hands.

Plus,Wayne finds himself not only solving numerous mysteries but fighting his own personal ghosts from pasts wounds, and connecting with a lot of hurting people. As if all that isn’t enough to handle, Wayne tries to right some big wrongs before any of them gets any bigger.

I enjoyed the story and found myself drawn in more with each passing page.  There are many important characters in the story, but Wayne is the main one.  Jerry the ex cop, Foster the retired business owner, Easton the philanthropist, Tatyana the lawyer, Julio the street kid, and Victoria are all very important too.

Mr. Bunn weaves together a suspenseful tale filled with camaraderie, spiritual insight and growth, action, stress, fear, and romance.  Violence and murder are not things I like to find in a story but there wasn’t much of either in this one.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.

Behemoth by Jonathan C. Leicht

Two hundred and twenty-two pages of apologetics and science mixed with just enough fiction to wrap two story-lines around it all.  Two similar story-lines running concurrently and both well written. Main idea of the book is that evolution holds to the belief that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago and died out before man came on the scene.  Whereas the evidence given in God’s infallible word and science both point to something entirely different.  Even to the possibility of dinosaurs living today in places like the Congo.

Interesting, fast, and a pleasure to read.  Some things I just felt were going to happen with the story but one or two things caught me off guard.

The apologetics and science in the story were great.  I love the way Mr. Leicht worked so many truths in and yet did not compromise the credibility of his characters.  The professor was ready and willing to give anyone who questioned him real scientific examples to support what he was sharing and to prove that it is not a leap of faith to believe God’s word to be true.  I also like the way he brought out that neither Creation nor evolution has been observed so both are actually world views that require faith. In addition to all that Mr. Leicht answers a lot of the arguments that are thrown at creationists.

I definitely recommend this book to family, friends, and complete strangers.
