In My Mailbox #5

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. I love this meme because it's a great way for me to talk about all my books, not just the ones I am reviewing. This week's participants can be found here.

Here are a few things I got this week:

And because there is no cover page on the kindle:

 Late Christmas present (because Amazon screwed up...big time):
The Old Testament Study Guide by Chuck Smith (Goodreads) (Amazon)

For review:
Rebellion: The Outer Territory by S. W. Benefiel (Goodreads) (Amazon)

Jewish Heritage Calendar
(not a book, but close enough :))

I posted about The Old Testament Study Guide a few weeks ago, after Christmas, but now that I actually have it I thought it worth mentioning again. It looks really good. It has tons of information about verses, maps, charts, etc and at the end of each book, a set of questions for reflection. I always feel like I don't know enough about the Old Testament, so I asked for a study guide for Christmas...and I got one :D

Currently reading Rebellion. I read the first book in the series - Day of Sacrifice: The Prophecy - last weekend and will post my review of it sometime this week.

The Jewish Heritage Calendar comes from Gunn's Bakery (it's a Jewish bakery) in Winnipeg, MB where my uncle works. He sends me a calendar every year (last year he also sent me some really yummy cookies from the bakery). I really enjoy looking at the things in it too. It has three things I love to learn about: material culture, religion, and culture. Plus it's really neat to see all the month names and dates in two different formats.


What did you get in your mailbox?
