In general readers of all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds and genders will appreciate the words of this book. The large font is not only easy to read- but the large size of this book will be a constant reminder to set aside some quiet time each day to read and to become inspired.

NKJV, Unapologetic Study Bible, Hardcover
By Emmanuel Foundation
Published by Thomas Nelson
This new bible, featuring the New King James Version, features easy to read font as well as relevant topics addressing important social, political and theological issues. Throughout the bible text are several relevant articles, thoroughly researched to suit the needs of laymen as well as bible students. Everything from suicide to taxes are addressed. Unlike traditional apologetic bibles and articles, the articles feature relevant modern issues as they relate to the field of apologetics. These articles will appeal to a wide range of readers no matter where they are with their bible background. Skeptics as well as Christians will appreciate the arguments and scholarly research of the selected articles. Color coded graphics not only add visual appeal but also help the reader to navigate the topics addressed. The bible is durable and will stand up to years of use. As a blogger I received a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review. For those readers who want to brush up on apologetics for their own knowledge or in response to debates with others, this is a great resource. The only thing is that I would like to see this bible available in the NIV translation in the future as the NIV will appeal to even more bible readers.

Author Paul Teutul, Jr. from the TV series American Chopper, builds custom "chopper" styled motorcycles. This book gives the reader, the behind the scenes back story of the popular series as well as insights into the author's own life as well as insights into the father Son relationship which also makes up much of the storyline in the TV show. Even those who are not into motorcycles will find insight and inspiration from Paul Teutul Jr's life story. Not only is this a story about mortorcycles as a hobby and lifestyle, it is also a book about relationships, family as well as finding one's niche or purpose in life. It is ironic, that from watching the TV show, this is the least likely TV character that one would expect to see an inspiring book with a message to all readers about perseverance, family and faith. This is what makes this book an effective outreach to reach all those readers out there who feel they are beyond the reach of a life changing experience. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Crown Publishing book for the purpose of writing this review. This book would make a great book for any motorcycle enthusiast or fan of the TV show as well as anyone else who needs inspiration.

Be the Gift
By Ann Voskamp
Published by Zondervan
The new book, Be the Gift by Ann Voskamp, is the perfect book for pastors and church leaders to distribute to parishners and church goers to encourage generosity and giving. This beautiful hardcover book is filled with serene picturesque photographs of nature and scenes of cozy upper middleclass life, and idealistic bountiful family gatherings, complete with unique ideas for gift giving and acts of generosity. For any pinterist fan and for those who have love to host get togethers and meals, this book will encourage people with means to think out of the box in order to encourage gift giving to those around them. The gift tags included in the book reinforce the book's purpose- to encourage gift giving and generosity of those with resources and time to spare. It is my opinion that the target audience of this book is for the upperclass socioeconomic class. Glimpses of traditional families, complete with their comfortable, quality clothing, and well decorated, quaint cottage homes, and complete meals that look like recipes from an upscale cookbook, will appeal most to those readers who are more affluent. Nevertheless, any reader will be able to glean some gift giving inspiration to show kindness to their neighbors and coworkers. As a blogger for booklook I received this book for the purpose of writing this review.

This book is suitable for more experienced believers who wish to fine tune their faith as well as skeptics and agnostics who are seeking truth and meaning and healing. The author brings light to topics that are normally hidden and seen as taboo. This book is a source of relief and comfort to all who take the time to read and reflect on its message. If you take the time to read this book and think about the message, not only will you make a connection but you too may find the healing you seek. This book was not what I expected, but I am glad I took the time to read it as it can be a life changer.

Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts
by Nathaniel Russell is a unique gift book with a larger social message. This unexpected book seems like an entertaining coffee table book, but within its pages is a brief commentary of the lack of purpose of life itself and modern society.
