Review: The Red Letter Words of Jesus

The Red Letter Words of Jesus

By Jack Countryman
Published by Thomas Nelson

Book Description

The words of Jesus—red letter words—are the most important and life changing ever spoken.
Discover the things Jesus thought were most important.
What He says about how to live.
His relationship with God and the Holy Spirit.
And His overwhelming love for you.
More than 100 passages from the Bible are considered with illuminating explanation and background facts. Most of all, discovering Jesus’ words will breathe life into your relationship with Him and help you draw close to the One who knows you fully and loves you completely.


The Red Letter words of Jesus was a fantastic read with 217 pages of delight. Each area is a total of two pages, one that is graphics as you can see, the other page is the scripture but written in a way that you can truly understand. My daughters enjoyed me reading this to them every night , they also had question about some of the scriptures and honestly we learned together about god's words. This is one book I am happy that I had the chance to review because it is written in a way that my two daughters and I could understand. 

I reviewed this material free in exchange for my honest opinions of the material I have received.

Hi Mom Book Reviewer,

I couldn't find a way to contact you directly?

Could I send you my middle-grade fantasy book for review with a Christian message? It's about an unbelieving boy who begins his adventure to faith, teleported to a grim fantasy world. My book is currently available on Amazon called “Alfred the Boy Who Would be King.”

For an honest review, and if you love it, I could:

Offer you a hard copy to raffle off to your followers?
And / or : Offer you 3 e-books to raffle off to your followers?
Give all of your audience a linked code to allow them to download the first half of the book for free? (If they email me your code, I can send them a free 180 page e-book of the first half. As well as give you their emails.)

Thanks for your time,
Ron Smorynski, author
Alfred The Boy King,


Some book bloggers have read the first outing and are giving it high praises:

The story captures the pure adventure and action so longed for in fantasy adventures while also tackling growing up, history, and family struggles. To me, it brings to mind such classics as Narnia and The Castle in the Attic.
~Emerson Rose Craig

Seeing him somehow figure out how to manage everything and rule his kingdom at such a young age. It was so inspiring to witness, as a reader. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves middle-grade fantasy books.
~Laila Tarek,

If I would describe this book in one word it would be Magical. Yes you read it right, Magical, this book is full of magic...

This story is a gripping and exciting one for fans of J.K. Rowling and Rick Riordan.

This indeed was a fun read! It had well balanced ingredients of grimness, hope, humor, and suspense. Great detail in the combat exchanges from clashes and gashes to fears and tears. It's a thoughtful look into the toll of being a knight, and carefully takes a kid with a computer to a kid with a kingdom.
~Alfonzo Rachel,

My name is Wendy Saddler, with Authors Large and Small, and we are a company that promotes up and coming authors. We have several authors in poetry, memoir, science fiction children’s, and more, that will greatly interest you. In particular, we are featuring a wonderful author, that is a Christian named Larry Higdon, who has written some VERY powerful and thought-provoking books that you don’t want to miss out on!! Check out these books below, and see what I mean.

Larry Higdon's The Storms of Deliverance. (Christian novel) Tale of an ex-Atlanta Braves player who wakes up broken down by the side of the road, unable to remember the past 27 years of his life. Story of how he puts everything together and overcomes the alcoholism that has led to his memory loss. Suspense and human-interest story, author has been compared to Nick Hornby. Higdon is a lawyer who has served as an elementary school counselor and certified play therapist.


The School from Hell explores the deterioration of public education through the eyes of an elementary school counselor. Katy Nguyen, riffed from her job at an affluent charter school, goes to work at Horseshoe Farms Elementary School in the north Georgia mountains. She finds a building with busted out windows, leaky pipes, puddles of water on the floors, an infestation of rats, plumbing problems, and a nonfunctioning heating and air-conditioning system. Her principal cares about nothing except standardized test scores. The parents with whom she meets range from narrow-minded to poignant to wildly eccentric. Katy also has personal demons to battle, including her own bipolar condition and her daughter's drug addiction. At times her plight seems so overwhelming that she considers suicide. Throughout the school year, Katy counts the days until she will be able to transfer to another school. As a result of her counseling duties, however, she meets a first-grade girl named Carly. She learns from this child, who is determined to overcome all of her considerable obstacles. Life keeps knocking Carly down, but the child keeps getting back up. Her interactions with Carly lead Katy to a new and life changing perspective.

Given your web site/blog's focus I think a review of these books would be a good fit. Please let me know if this interests you and I'll have the authors send you a copy. If you have any questions, please contact me at, or
