Fast Facts on False Teachings by Ron Carlson & Ed Decker.
I picked up this book more out of curiosity than to learn anything, but whether I wanted to learn or not, I did.
Fast Facts focuses on the major religions in today's world, gives a brief history on how they got started and points out any major flaws in some religions. Fast Facts is not only a great way to learn about what other people believe and why, but you just might learn something about your own religion that you did not know before.
Fast Facts is not a story, or purely entertainment, it is however a worth while book to read.
In Fast Facts you will read about: Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Roman Catholicism just to name a few religions Ron and Ed write about.
I would highly recommend Fast Facts on False Teachings, it is a well written book, gets right to the point but gives enough details for you to understand or at least get a good idea about different religions.

Special thanks to Jill Williamson for providing me with an advanced copy of The New Recruit.
The New Recruit , Jill's latest book, I would give a rating of 4.5 stars. The New Recruit in my opinion is not her best work, but still is a good read. At the start of the book it is a little confusing and takes a bit to get into the story, but by the 2nd or 3rd chapter it started to grab my attention, then I was hooked.
Spencer Garmond, just a "regular" teenage guy, lives with his grandma. Because of his knack of getting into trouble, he has had what you could call a rough past. Even though he has been in a few tight spots, the only thing he really wants is to play basket ball. His world is flipped upside-down when he is told that he was "chosen by God" to be some sort of secret agent. But the other teens "chosen by God" to be secret agents are what Spencer calls "churchers" (that is christians). The last thing he needs is to be associated with the churchers, or worse still what if Spencer's friends think he is a churcher. Never the less Spencer is curious, exactly what do a bunch of teen churchers have to do with secret agents? So he decides (with a little persuasion from his grandma) to give the "Mission League" or the christian spy network a chance. Little does he know that his decision to give the Mission League a chance will change his life, for better or worse all depends on him.
I would recommend you join Spencer on his adventure with the Mission League.
The New Recruit Mission 1: Moscow, once you start the adventure you will be in suspense waiting to see just what will happen next.
