James Donaldson’s Book Review – The Truth About Muhammad: Founder of the World’s Most Intolerant Religion

This book was a fascinating look into the life of the prophet Muhammad, founder of Islam, as written and detailed by a non-Muslim, author Robert Spencer.

James Donaldson’s Book Review: Why Are You Atheists So Angry? : 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless by Greta Christina

This is a little bit different of a type of book than what I typically read, being that I am still a “card-carrying Christian man of faith”, but I do notice the world around me, and I have noticed the influence of the church waning especially in today’s social climate.

James Donaldson’s Book Review – Awaken the Leader Within: How the Wisdom of Jesus Can Unleash Your Potential

I thought this is a very insightful book about leadership, especially comparing it to Jesus’ leadership style, one of self-motivation, vision, courage, dependence on God. Also, this particular leadership style shows how to nurture vision in others, make wise decisions, build a team, and put others first. We don’t see a lot of this type […]
