In My Own Words:
I'm married with a son who is 16. Neither of the men in my life like reading but they equal my reading obsession with football fanaticism.

I am a Christian and, although not into organised religion, I would consider myself devout and absolutely committed to my faith and to my God.

I love being with family and friends but I need my own space too.

Immediate Obedience: The Adventure of Tuning in to&hellip by Rod Loy
5.0 out of 5 stars Death to self, 12 Aug 2014
Challenging stuff!
Do not read this book unless you want to be seriously challenged as a Christian. It has been an uncomfortable read for me as it has shown me how far away I am from 'immediate obedience'.

The writer's normality and warmth shines through and it is very well written. I am so glad I have read this book and I recommend it to any Christian looking to commit fully to their relationship with God. This is fantastic stuff!
The 8 Great Debates of Bible Prophecy by Ron Rhodes

The style is straightforward, simplifying a fairly academic subject without losing the depth. You can… Read more
Psy-Q: You know your IQ - now test your psychologi&hellip by Ben Ambridge
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
This is a brilliant book. I absolutely love it. It is incredibly interesting yet great fun to read and do. It is packed full of exercises and they are serious psychology tests but they are presented in a fun way with an easy to understand explanation and evaluation. The writer adds jokes and real fun stuff. He is clearly very academic but he presents his material in a very accessible, informative way
