Soul Tattoo A Life and Spirit Bearing the Marks of God Samuel Kee 2014 242 pages   I just finished reading Soul Tattoo: A Life and Spirit Bearing the Marks of God by Samuel Kee. I had it on my Kindle for months, but having a surplus of content, I hadn’t read it until now. I wish I had read it sooner because it was fascinating. The author uses the imagery of tattoos and makes comparisons with God’s tattoos on our life, for we are “marked” by God. The soul tattoos described come from Isaiah 43:1-7: But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.

Leonard Sweet offers his positive vision for the future based on his remarkably accurate read on the millennial generation. I love to read Sweet’s work simply to gain insight on culture and how to shape the Christian life and message to reach the current culture best. Soul Salsa is worth a read, especially if you want a fresh take on living well in today’s culture. I’d like to leave you with some short (Tweetable) quotes form the book: “Faith is an antibiotic for the spirit.”...

Unsucceeding: Waking Up from My American Dream A True Story of Trading Success for Real Life Kyle Drake 2012 150 pages Available from Amazon in paperback or Kindle editions. I read the Kindle edition.   I’m a little torn as to how to review Unsucceeding: Waking Up From My American Dream. I was grabbed by the title of this book, but I was disappointed to discover it was a biography with no real teaching content. Just because it wasn’t what I expected or what I was looking for doesn’t mean it isn’t a good book. Therein lies my dilemma. Kyle Drake was climbing the corporate ladder and became a vice president of a bank. When his wife gave birth to twins and one had severe health problems, it shook his life enough to make him reconsider what really mattered. Here it is in his own words: I was a church-going, active Christian husband and father striving for “balance” between work and home...
