On 5/13 Joel Bremer wrote: Hey all, I have just finished a great book by Ian Morgan Cron called, "Chasing Francis." I read Cron's other book and was pleased to read this one.

On 4/25 Joel Bremer wrote: I have read "Clean" by Douglas Weiss. The Subtitle says it all: "A proven plan for men committed to sexual integrity."

A great resource for men everywhere!
On 4/12 Joel Bremer wrote: I love books on apologetics (defending the faith). This book is probably the best book on apologetics i have ever read.

Great book!

On 6/11 Joel Bremer wrote: When i began to read this book I could immeditly identify with the author. He was a discouraged and burned out pastor.

Great and powerful book
On 5/23 Joel Bremer wrote: Everyone has experienced Empty Promises from people and we have been hurt. Pete Wilson has written a book called "Empty Promises." The truth is, you've been lied to.
