Tyndale has entered the premium and ultra-premium Bible market with their Tyndale Select NLT: Select Reference Edition – a hand-crafted edition printed by Jongbloed. It has the 2015 edition of the NLT and is available in either calf skin or goatskin. Bother covers are available in black or brown, and with or without thumb index. I’ve been using the black goatskin edition for a few weeks now and here are my thoughts about its design and construction. Binding The cover is black goatskin. It’s flexible but not so flexible that I can’t hold it flat with one hand for...Read More
If you want to learn about nutrition The Busy Mom’s Guide to Family Nutrition is a great place to start. While there is a lot of information on the web and in various magazines about nutrition this book brings together the basics in one easy to understand book. It is written in a question and answer format and covers topics like: defining nutritional terms, understanding nutritional labels, purposes and sources of vitamins and minerals, and common sense approaches to losing weight. The weight loss sections of the book include figuring out what a proper weight should be, contributing factors (both controllable and non-controllable) to obesity, and practical solutions for all ages from toddlers to adults. I particularly liked the advice for evaluating diet claims and the explanations of the different types of fats, carbohydrates, and sugars. I have read quite a lot about nutrition and found this book to be mostly accurate, practical, and in keeping with a Christian viewpoint. It is not so “Christian” as to be offensive to those of a different worldview. Those who have studied nutrition quite a bit won’t learn new anything except possibly an easy way to explain things but this book should be useful for everyone else. Especially since it is marketed as “quick answers for moms on the go” it needs a better index to make answers to specific questions easier...Read More

Is the Bible Reliable? building the historical case from Tyndale Publishing is a 2-DVD and book set from the creators of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project. This is the second set in the TrueU series. The DVDs include five hours of classroom lectures which covers 10 lessons on archaeological finds and how those finds correlate to events in the Bible, showing the Bible to be accurate and reliable through external corroboration. The book is a companion to the lectures and includes questions from the lectures, archaeological facts, photos of archaeological artifacts, interviews with archaeologists, a glossary for each chapter, lots of fun cartoons, and more. The lectures are given by Dr. Stephen Meyer. They are well delivered and filled with fascinating information. Meyer uses visuals and shows what we find in Scripture, and then shows external archaeological evidence that backs up the Bibles’ claims. Meyer delivers strong evidence that the Bible is reliable from an archaeological standpoint. The companion guide is meant to help guide you through the lectures. It does contain some facts and photos, but there’s not enough in it to use as a carry-with-me defender’s guide. The real strength in this series is the DVD lectures. You’ll want to watch it several times and I recommend taking notes to build your own defender’s guide. I recommend Is the Bible Reliable? DVD set, as I...Read More
