Fast Five Second Book Reviews, rated with five thumbs.
The Grace of God, by Andy Stanley
An incredible work that is by far his best. You’ll be crying tears of joy here. Stanley goes through the entire Bible to show every instance of God’s grace. Not a wasted word. 5 out of 5 thumbs up.
Velvet Elvis, by Rob Bell
His seminal work before he became (in)famous from Love Wins, this one has some weird theology but it’s not a bad refresher. Bell is like the hipster David Crowder of authors, minus the beard and sound doctrine. 3 out of 5 thumbs up.
Multiply, by Francis Chan
I really wanted to like it because I adore Francis Chan, but it’s a bloated work with too much abstract writing. Couldn’t tell if it was for new Christians or veterans. It has possibly one good chapter. 2.5 out of 5 thumbs up.
Miracles, by C.S. Lewis
Not one of his best and lacks quotables, but if you’ve wondered about miracles, this is the one for you. Very dense but any Lewis is good Lewis. 4 out of 5 thumbs up.
Grace, by Max Lucado
Max is great at one-liners, telling stories, and using words that will hit your heart. While a little shallow, this is the perfect sunset book at a beach. 3.5 out of 5 thumbs up.
