Book Review – The Life Book by Carl Blunt

The Life Book, by Carl Blunt

(Just so ya know up front, this book was provided to me, for review, by the The B&B Media Group.)

I will not be rating this as it is basically a version of the Book of John from the Bible. I will, however, still review it using my regular questions.

My Review
Snackable? For the most part, yes. As much as the Bible is an easy read. It’s pretty much the Book of John with commentary by 4 teens and a youth leader.
“Lundie” ending? n/a
Best thing? It’s the book of John presented in a way that feels like a bit of a discussion.
Worst thing? I wouldn’t say it’s a “bad” thing, but it is definitely geared toward High School students (by design) not to an old “mom” like me.

Video Review – Diarmaid MacCulloch’s A History of Christianity

A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years
Presented by Diarmaid MacCulloch

Video 1 of this series was provided to me, for review, by The B&B Media group.

My Review
What I liked
  • I was a little disappointed when he said he wouldn’t be addressing Jesus, but I was glad about it as the video progressed. This video is a history of the Christian church as an organization.
  • It was fascinating! I got sucked right in, as I am prone to do with all historical fact shows. It’s weird to me how things can seem so boring by description, but can’t seem to turn it off once I start…
  • Totally agree with his observation about how Western Christianity might do well to take a lesson from the Church of the East, and learn how to LISTEN.
What I didn’t like
  • At first it was a little distracting because all I could think was that he sounded like Stewie from Family Guy, but that faded after 10 minutes or so.
