Stryper - Second Coming Album Review

So I have heard a lot about the band Stryper, but prior to this album I had not even listened to their music. Considering that I wasn't even alive during the bands initial run from '83-'92, I am definitely not an expert on their genre of music. However I thought I would review this album with a fresh perspective, without expecting them to sound like they did in the 80's.

Altar Ego Book Review

Best selling author and pastor Craig Groeschel challenges readers to explore who they really are in his new book Altar Ego. In this book Craig takes you on a journey from where you are to where God wants and knows you can be.

At first going into to Altar Ego I figured it would be pretty simple, probably something you have heard many times before just worded a little different. That was my honest impression before reading it. However God has proven to me yet again...don't judge a book by it's cover. I am so glad that I gave the book a chance and read it!
