Christian Encounter Series - J.S. Bach

Review: 3.5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. Although I will joyfully listen to anything Mozart, weep at the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s Pathetique, and rejoice while listening to and singing along with Handel’s Messiah, my favorite classical composer, by far, is Johann Sebastian Bach. …

Book Review - A Year with God by R.P. Nettelhorst

It's a typical devotional book with 365 Old Testament scripture sections and the authors devotional written underneath.
