My goal for my blog is to introduce you to wholesome Christian books, whether fiction or non-fiction (with some cozy mysteries and articles that are important to me.)
Some time back I received a book that was not Christian. The plot and characters were good. The story kept my attention. The ending is what shocked me. The characters were left angry, bitter and vengeful.
Christian books I consider great are those that bring us closer to the Lord, bring Him honor, and help us all to be reconciled to Him and to reconcile with those in our lives. I want to offer books that will give you a future and a hope, as God does for each of us. We are not perfect people, whether readers or writers, but I would like to present books that help us grow in the gifts of the Spirit, faith, love, and truth.
With that, welcome to One Desert Rose – A source for Christian Book Reviews!
I’ve been an avid reader since I learned to read. I love sharing what I read.
I believe that I/you must be born again (new creatures in Christ through the Holy Spirit) in order to live eternally with God. Jesus died in propitiation for my/your sins and rose again to give me/your eternal life. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. For He so love me/you that He gave His only begotten Son so that when I/you believe, I/you will not perish but have eternal life. We must repent and be baptized, all of us, for the forgiveness of sin. Without the shedding of blood there is so forgiveness of sin. To as many as receive Him to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name. For God did not send the Son (Jesus) into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He is not willing that any (you or I) should perish but that all should come to repentance.
