Soul Tattoo: A Life and Spirit Bearing the Marks of God by Samuel Kee

By in Book Reviews, Perspective | 0 comments

Soul Tattoo: A Life and Spirit Bearing the Marks of God by Samuel Kee My rating: 4 of 5 stars Soul Tattoo will change the way you think about yourself, your relationship with God, and your Christian experience. It’s definitely worth a read, but don’t read it if you want to go back to life as usual. Author Samuel Kee 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. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will now drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD,...

Unsucceeding by Kyle Drake

Unsucceeding by Kyle Drake My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m a little torn as to how to review this book. 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 life. Until some finely-tuned suffering became an opportunity for me to learn something profound. There is no hole so deep as the hopeless emptiness of trying to have it all. Through my wife...
