The David Luiz Story by Alex Carpenter

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. A small amount of promotional advertisement is included in the following post.

Taking a little break from my July break to post this review. 

The story of David Luiz, 2010 player of the year and a rising star in international professional soccer, whose faith and success are inspiring to young athletes.

David Luiz has been impressing crowds since he was a boy. But it is his faith, not his fame, that drives him to greater success and keeps him "defending the line". David made his debut in professional soccer as a left fullback when he was just 19. He was then picked up by Portugal's Benefica team and named player of the year for the 2009-2010 season. As a star defender and vice-captain for the Brazilian national team, David shines both on and off the field, inspiring athletes around the world with his incredible soccer skills and his unwavering faith.

Do Not Be Afraid! by Messianic Rabbi K.A. Schneider

I received this book in exchange for my review, a small amount of advertisement is included in the post.

Do you live full of fear? This world is a very uncertain place, but...
You Can Live Without Fear!
 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 Everyone deals with fear; not everyone conquers it. Throughout our lives we all experience different kinds of fears. Unfortunately, many of us believe the lie that fear is something we have to live with. You don't! According to Scripture, God desires every one of His children to be free from fear-including you! In Do Not Be Afraid!, Rabbi K.A. Schneider shares personal testimony of how he struggled with, and experienced victory over fear-and how you too can walk in this same supernatural freedom. 
This book shows you how to:

I received this book in exchange for my opinion. The following post contains a small amount of advertisement.
