Welcome Reader Friends and New Subscribers to Telbat’s Tablet today for David Telbat’s book reviews on two top-selling Christian books, one fiction, one non-fiction, both favorites of his. (Retailer links are provided at the bottom of each review.)
Danger in the Shadows by Dee Henderson
Review by D.I. Telbat
Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense
Also Posted on GoodReads
Every once in a while, I read a romance. I’ve been hesitant to read anything but historical fiction—but I won’t hesitate any longer with Dee Henderson’s modern day suspenseful romances, like Danger in the Shadows.
Sara, the main character, has a dark past involving a stalker. A developing love interest keeps the fast-paced plot multidimensional, and her protective FBI brother is all hero. Great character depth!
The chapters flew by for me, and the realistic conflict shown through the character’s personal point-of-view gave me a front-row seat to trauma and relief alike.
I feel that Henderson has a rare skill where some others writers fail. Because of her, my own action-adventures will bear a little more heart—along with a story that still moves.
Though Henderson’s book was about a woman in search of love and life without fear, I found a Christian romance author who connected me to a great suspense, while at the same time, helping me become a better writer.
If you enjoy Christian romantic suspense novels, read Danger in the Shadows and fall in love. There are many books available by Dee Henderson in this series. (Keep ’em coming, Dee!)
The Soulwinner by C.H. Spurgeon
Review by D.I. Telbat
Genre: nonfiction, inspirational, instructional
“Great instruction for the Soul-Winner Christian”
Are you a soul winner? Because those who follow Jesus are made fishers of men!
This is just one of the topics Spurgeon—that beloved 19th Century preacher—talks about in this collection of essays and sermons on soul winning.
Do you know the qualities of a soul winner? Have you considered the types of messages that may win souls? What are the main obstacles to winning souls? These are three of the fifteen chapter titles of this deeply convicting and inspiring work.
Soul winning, Spurgeon says, should be our one business as Christians from which we never retire. I have read many instructional books on evangelism, but never a whole book on the analysis of the spiritual preparation for soul winning.
This book gets five stars from me. I am a soul winner, and after reading this, I realize I have to do more for my Savior and for that hell-bound man across the way.
Don’t put off learning what your biblical soul winning service should be for God. Read The Soulwinner!
