Healthy Churches

Healthy Churches:God's Bible Blueprint for Growth by: Brian Johnston
Non-fiction: Religion, E-book
E-Book Count:20
Book Count: 109

I picked this up thinking it might be interesting to read another book with themes like "Rebuilt", but for a different place.  It's author is British and protestant, so they are dealing with slightly different issues.   It is clear that this preacher feels that it is important to note that they are a "Bible church" leader, by cramming the book with bible quotes, quite often trying to shoehorn them into their ideas, in ways that I have never heard anyone think that that is what it means.  He also misquotes St. Francis, because of course he did.

Lost: Lost and Found Pet Posters From Around the World:

Lost: Lost and Found Pet Posters From Around the World By: Ian Phillips
Physical Book Count: 83
Book Count: 100

A collection of lost pet posters from around the world.  It is divided up by pet type as well as having a map of where the posters are from and advise on what to do if a pet goes missing.  There is also  posters for a few weird things like a missing grilled cheese sandwich.  It also makes a note that all the posters were either given to the author after the pet was found or there was a copy of it made and re-posted, so this collection of posters did not stop people from seeing the posters when they were needed.
