Just Being Us

Just Being Us
Family, where we can be real, and feel unconditional love!

I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

     Our family loves to read.  We have so many books and bookshelves, some may think we overdo it a bit, but we just love books and reading! We were happy to hear we would be receiving and reviewing Pursued to Eternity by author John Riley and published by Covenant Books, Inc. We are always ready to read books that are wholesome and encourage us in our walk of faith.  

     John Riley has a Master of Science degree and worked for over 30 years as an engineer.  After retiring from engineering,  he and his wife Nancy, have been teaching subjects such as robotics and physics.  They have also helped students prepare for their SAT tests.  In addition to these, they teach courses on creation versus evolution.  Some of those courses, available on SchoolhouseTeachers.com, are also mentioned in this book.  His heart for teaching students about their Creator is evident in this book and in all he does. I am always excited to see others professing their belief and not afraid to speak about their love for God. 

     This is a soft-back book that is about 150 pages. It is geared towards teens in middle school and high school, but I feel parents and even some younger students will enjoy it as well. As a parent, I am always looking for resources that teach apologetics and this book is good for that.   


     Pursued to Eternity, is a book that describes God's pursuit of his children.  God wants us to search for Him as much as He pursues us.  He shows his great love for us all throughout history.  In this book, you will read about Conner and his brother Alan who are at odds with their beliefs.  Conner is a teacher and Christian who believes in the Bible with all his heart.  His brother Alan is an atheist and isn't interested in what Conner believes.  As you read through the story, you will see how God can work in the life of someone who doesn't believe and how He uses actual artifacts and history to do it. 

     My daughter and I are the ones who read through this book and we found it to be interesting, but sometimes it was a little hard to follow. We would suggest taking your time reading it and really think about what the author is trying to get across as the story progresses.  

     John Riley is clearly a man of God and wants others to see how wonderful His Creator is.  I am inspired by his creativity in this story and his passion for teaching Creation.
