Twenty years later, George Foss is still obsessed with his first love. I get it – he is nearing forty and has built a solid, quiet and utterly boring life.

Most romances develop in a predictable order: boy meets girl, they fall in love, get married, have babies and live happily ever after. That’s not what happens in Never Surrender to a Scoundrel. Here, everything transpires in a mixed up order and it’s quite a refreshing change.
We meet our hero and heroine during what can only be an exciting time in their lives, each envisioning a much different life.

I never thought about how to dismantle an atheist’s position. That’s where Norman Geisler and Daniel McCoy’s book, The Atheist Fatal Flaw, could have changed my experience.

In the introduction to his book, The Pastor’s Kid, Barnabas Piper writes two things that capture The Pastor’s Kid. First Piper describes the three objectives of his book: Give voice to PKs and their challenges, speak to pastors about how they can help their kids, and write to the church about how to “ease the burden of the pastor and his family” (p. 17).
