Mini-Reviews #11 and Book Giveaway

I'm back with another batch of mini book reviews. This time I review four books and have a special book giveaway (courtesy of Tyndale House Publishers).

Friday Five Interview – Chris Fabry

Today I’m privileged to interview author and radio host, Chris Fabry. Chris is a familiar voice if you’ve been a long-time listener of WMBI in Chicago or Focus on the Family or Love Worth Finding, the radio ministry of the late Dr. Adrian Rogers. Chris is also a prolific author. He partnered with Jerry Jenkins to write the Left Behind Series for Kids and The Red Rock Mystery Series. He has also written biographies with sports figures such as[amazon ASIN=”1414339437″] Drew Brees[/amazon] and[amazon ASIN=”1414325703″] Coach Jim Tressel[/amazon] of Ohio State University.

Chris is the host of Chris Fabry Live and a cohost with his wife, Andrea of Building Relationships with Dr. Gary Chapman. Both are broadcast on the Moody Broadcasting Network.

In 2009, Chris won the Christy Award for his novel, [amazon ASIN=”141431955X”]Dogwood[/amazon]. His latest novel, Junebug, was nominated for a 2010 Christy Award.

What I have admired about Chris, whether through his radio show or his writing, is his sincerity and authenticity. Recently, Chris and his family endured a grueling series of trials that forced them to move from their home and depend on God financially, spiritually, and medically.
