Book review: Hank Hanegraaff : "Has God Spoken?"

I already own several books by Hank Hanegraaff and was anxious to read this one. This book is nearly 400 pages long with the last 100 pages or so filled with Notes, Bibliography and a Subject Index. Has God Spoken? demonstrates that God has indeed spoken. We CAN trust the Bible, it's trustworthy, true and transformational to our lives. He uses manuscript evidence, archeology, predictive prophecy, and much more to memorably demonstrate that the Bible is divine rather than merely human in origin. 

Hank uses acronyms a lot and I found that a lot of the words he says are hard to understand for the average mind. You'll need a dictionary to look up words almost immediately. It's a struggle to get through a lot of this book I'll be honest. It's nice for a reference but I'm not going through all of this reading it again. It's difficult and it's time consuming to look up the words. Your average person doesn't talk like this and most likely doesn't know anywhere near what he's saying. You need a lot of spare time to get through it. I don't recommend this book because it's just too much to consume and take in.

Campbells® Slow Kettle® Style Soups



I received a free bowl of the Slow Kettle Style Soup courtesy of Smiley360. I chose to review the Chicken Chili. This was pretty enjoyable, quite filling--all 15.7 oz of it! I made a meal out of this with some Saltine Crackers. I needed a little bit more salt so I added those in my soup. It had chunks of chicken in it, some spices, lots of beans and corn which I love!! I wish I could taste the Cilantro because I love it. I didn't taste it in the soup unfortunately. I could've done with less sauce in it though but otherwise, it was pretty good and I finished the whole thing. I would like to try the other flavors that Campbell's sells in the Slow Kettle Style Soups! Try Campbells® Slow Kettle® Style Soups and be sure to use this $1.00 off coupon! http://bit.ly/YVxW1D
