How I changed my about Evolution: Evangelicals Reflect on Faith and Science is a collection of stories about people who embrace both evolution and faith in God and the Bible. In 25 “minimemoirs” it tries to help you understand how people could reconcile the two views. The book is well written. They have done a good job of representing different starting points and varying occupations that would find this topic a major concern. They have writers that start by believing in both (with an unclear idea of how), either, and even (because they hadn’t given it much thought) neither....Read More
Graphic novelizations of the Bible are becoming more popular than ever. One of the companies leading this trend is Kingstone Comics. Kingstone Comics produces comics and graphic novels, and they even produce the complete Bible in three large volumes. In this review I take a look at a single comic book simply titled Noah. The story is a graphic novelization of Noah. It of course takes some artistic license rather than being word-for-word from the Bible (hence the ‘novelization’).

At ICRS we had the privilege of sitting down with Brian Wells, the author of The League and The Lantern. The book is the first in a series of five novels and follows Jake and his new friends Lucy and TJ on their adventures. The three meet at a school sponsored sleepover that gets taken over by an unknown organization. They narrowly escape and spend the next 48 hours trying to figure out what the group is after and why, who can be trusted, and how to survive. It has lots of twists and turns and beautifully balances humor...Read More
At ICRS we had the opportunity to interview Maureen Pratt about her book Don’t Panic!: How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough, which talks about dealing with crisis. Maureen talks about the various types of crisis that she’s been through, how she dealt with them, and her advice to others in dealing with their own situations. She talks about calling and depending on God, the purpose of crisis, commitment, building spiritual strength, shunning the cloak of victim, and much more. Don’t Panic! is a well-written book and is recommended for anyone going through a crisis of any kind. The book is available in...Read More
