This, all this
Bloodshot Salvation #4 - Jeff Lemire,Mico Suayan

Man, this makes me want more Bloodshot.  

 

Daddy's history sets up a new threat, as Daddy tries to right what he sees as a wrong with his brother Danny.  

 

And although Bloodshot appears to be dead, Punk Mambo provides a connection - and surprising revelation as to where Bloodshot is.   I kinda need issue five now.  Although I guess I can wait until next Wednesday...

Still loving this
Bloodshot Salvation #3 - Jeff Lemire,Lewis Larosa,Mico Suayan

This gets more complex, more heartbreaking, as Bloodshot finds and confronts Daddy, Magic's father, and the leader of a cult.   Bloodshot is furious over what Daddy's done to Magic, and how Daddy is trying to get Magic back, breaking up the family that Magic and Bloodshot have made.   

 

No doubt Daddy wants Magic to bring her daughter, Jessie, to the cult, and although she has no plans to do this, the mere thought infuriates Bloodshot.

Love this series so much!
Bloodshot Salvation #2 - Jeff Lemire,Lewis Larosa,Mico Suayan

Bloodshot Salvation has become one of my favorite current series.  I'm already sad this is only twelve issues long, especially since I finished three and four today.  That means I only have eight issues left.   What?  No, that can't be!

 

Bloodshot, Magic, and their baby, Jessie, are trying to live their lives, but Magic's father, who calls himself Daddy, is the leader of cult, and abused Magic when she was a child, keeps calling.   Ray/Bloodshot is determined to take care of Daddy, even though Magic says to let it go, that they're living their lives and they should ignore Daddy.   Bloodshot can't: Daddy has abused Magic, is threatening Bloodshot's family, and Bloodshot simply can't live with these facts without at least trying to do something.  

 

All three issues are bleeding together, so I'm going to leave it here.  This series is beautiful, haunting, heartbreaking and hopeful.   And I would expect no less from Jeff Lemire, the writer.   The fact that the art is gorgeous is a bonus, but I was in this for Lemire and Bloodshot alone. I was hoping for gorgeous art, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me.

Romans: Salvation for "All"
Romans: Salvation for "All" - George Wilson Knight

The Epistle of Romans is the most evangelistic book of the New Testament as the Apostle Paul gave to the church in Rome and every reader since a the best explanation of the good news of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection.  George R. Knight’s commentary Romans: Salvation for “All” not only gives the background of the book, but also a clarification of what Paul means throughout his multi-layered sermon.  Meant to be read alongside the Epistle, in which the reader can examine the Old Testament verses that Paul quotes extensively, this commentary allows the reader a deeper and all-encompassing understanding of the message that Paul is giving the reader in its correct context.  An excellent book that comes in at only 127 pages.

Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb
Salvation in Death (In Death, #27) - J.D. Robb

A priest drops dead in the middle of a funeral mass; COD: cyanide poisoning. Soon, it turns out, he wasn't really a priest, and while Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to figure out who the victim really was, the murderer strikes again. At another religious event, in front of even more people, but with the same murder weapon...

Who has it for men of the cloth (more or less) and why?


I found it rather hard to get into this book. Not because it was poorly written, quite the opposite in fact, but somehow it failed to really catch my attention...And my interest.

The truth behind the first body seemed a little far-fetched, the characters written especially for this story weren't that "appealing", I found the middle murder a little too misleading, and the entire investigation, the motive, and the one who pulled all the strings left me rather cold.

It was a solid, well-paced story with many twist and turns, yet nothing to really rave about.
