UnDo It! by Dean & Anne Ornish

This book has over 500 pages and was published by Ballantine books, 2019.

Harvard University Medical School professor of genetics David Sinclair states “This book will change your life. After forty years of research,the Ornishes have distilled their findings and the medical literature into a fact- based, simple recipe for longer healthier life.”

This for me is not just another book to reccomend, but has and is a life changing book to maintain my heart health rather than undergo a quadruple bypass surgery.

I highly recommend this great book for men.


Spiritual Reformation

This topic has become in some larger churches a separate department.

I have researched and found two current books that help explain it.

Renovation of the Heart by Dallas Willard published by Navpress in 2002.

The second book is Revolution of Character [Discovering Christ’s pattern for Spiritual Transformation] by Willard and Sampson published in 2005.

In my counseling ministry I am using these book with clients who wish to go deeper in their relationship with the Lord.


Humility by Andrew Murray

I had a few minutes, so I visited an Ollies to check out their books. What I found was the above book. I can highly recommend this small book with a great message we all need to practice.

It is a classic published by Bethany House in 2001.


Cherish by Gary Thomas

I am presently reading and have found the book a great help for men who need to be a romantic husband with words.

I have now finished this inspiring book on Nov. 13, 2018. It is filled with ways a husband or wife can cherish their spouse.

Read it and it will bless your marriage.


The Heart of Addiction by Mark E Shaw

I have just finished reading this book and highly recommend it to anyone struggling with addictions or to any counselor helping an addict. There is also a Workbook of 88 pages that really helps to cover the book  that has 285 pages.

Mark covers the topic of addiction with clarity and at the end of each chapter there is an appropriate prayer.


Counseling Under the Cross by Bob Kellemen

I have read books about Martin Luther but this one I just finished is exceptional. What he has done as researched the letters and table talks of Luther and have discovered his counseling care for souls.Although he  wrote these 500 years ago because he was a student of the Word discovering scriptural principles based on the work of Christ on the cross is grace-saturated  and gospel focused.

This must read book  for pastors and biblical counselors is 246 pages and published in 2017 by New Growth Press.
