For those of you who missed the post, or aren’t aware of how Busy Books are designed, they work on a point system. Kids bring the books to church with them, and earn points by listening to, and checking off key words during the sermon. This teaches them to pay attention, and listen closely. They also earn extra points if they read their Bible during the week, if they bring their Bible to church, if they pray in the morning, etc. …

Spend Some Time with Tozer

March 8th, 2011 Viewed 1388 times

Mornings With TozerOne of my all time favorite authors is A.W. Tozer.  I was first introduced to him in college when I was given the assignment to read different entries in the Best of Tozer compilation works.  From there, I added him to my daily devotions, and it’s true what they say, he really does make you want to read your Bible more.

Mornings with Tozer is a devotional with excerpts from different writings and sermons from Tozer on a given topic formatted to be read each day of the year.  That means there’s 366 entries, just in case it’s a leap year.

Caption Contest 6 – Translation Needed

June 23rd, 2008 Viewed 1754 times

carnival de ovar 1This caption contest is easy– just figure out what it is that is the caption for the book.

No, I don’t have any clue what language that is, and that’s what makes it more fun.

No, I don’t know what culture dresses their children up as books.

Yes, I do think that this child colored the book herself.

Bonus points if you come up with the context for this occasion and can tell me what the boy in the red is thinking about the girl in the blue.


Update– The language on the front of the book is Portuguese, and though there is some discrepancy as to what the translation of the actual words on the book are, come up with your captions regardless of what it really says!

I’m just about finished with the last of the Left Behind Series (yes, I know that they’re coming up with another book, but this is the last one dealing with the Tribulation).  Some comments, as I’m thinking about it:

  • This book contains probably the most Scripture of all of them.  I won’t get into the details of why for those that have not yet read it, but it just oozes with it.
  • Some of things seem pretty dragged out– but that’s considering that I’ve always thought of them happening “bang, bang, bang” and they are trying to account for the what if cases.
  • A lot of time is spent trying to tie up loose ends, which is fine.
  • The portayal of Satan is interesting and changes.

What are your comments?
