Every Thought Captive: Battling the Toxic Beliefs That Separate Us from the Life We Crave
Review Date: 12/14/2007
Helpful Score: 2


The author hits a wide range of personal topics that include having lustful thoughts about others while you're married, envy of others, and forgiveness of self. Extremely helpful to have a first person narrative, and such frank confessions of her own weaknesses. It makes the reader feel as if they're not so alone, and can find solace in the scriptures.

This is a small hardcover book of bible verses that is comforting when you are lonely and/or hurting. Geared toward teenagers, this book addresses topics such as stepparents, unanswered prayers, forgiving others, and even body piercings. After a short summary of the issue and how God plays a part in it, the book then has a few short corresponding bible verses.

Small, hardcover book. An amusing and dry look at how to iron, geared toward men. Covers the why's and wherefore's of the actual implement ("If you need a NASA manual to operate it, you iron is probably pure stupidity. Save your macchismo for an Alfa Romeo!") to the style of shirt ("Short-sleeve shirts are for grocers and exterminators. Wear one and people will look for your name in red, embroidered in script over the flap on your pocket").

If you have an older sibling or siblings, this will explain the dynamics of the special relationship between the birth orders.
Or, if you are the oldest, it will clarify the decisions you've made in life. These theories are logical and fun to read!
