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
Christian Action Heroes produces comicbooks and graphic novels with a message. Just like real life, the characters are not perfect and sometimes make bad choices.

Relevant Magazine calls it “The #1 Christian Superhero.” I’m reviewing a graphic novel called The Art of Warfare. There’s also merchandise available including trading cards, coloring books, an action figure, and even curriculum. The heroes are even available for live action performances. Clint Johnson is the...Read More
Rose Publishing’s How We Got the Bible is a 189-page book from Timothy Paul Jones that shows where the Bible came from and why it contains the books that it does. Dr. Jones takes this a step further by discussing why we have the Bible in the first place, which is something most never mention. It not only covers the historical events of writing the Scriptures but also shows how God spoke to others before the Scriptures were written, how He speaks through His creation, and as the Word made Flesh. He shows that God speaks to us through...Read More
Why Dogs Are… is written by Tana Thompson and illustrated by Marita Gentry. It’s a short story about God sending the first dog from Heaven to a little boy named Brian. Brian’s blind and deaf so God can’t show him how much he loves him through the things around him, like rainbows and bird’s songs. He sends Dog to love the boy and to teach him two things: to love without expecting anything in return, and to forgive those who hurt him. The story’s told half in pictures and the artwork is very pretty. In 2014 it was a...Read More
