It’s not often that I get a contract for a review that isn’t in a book-like format. Most of my reviews, if not just about all of them, have been on books (both print and electronic) and audiobooks. So when this opportunity came up to review an online newsletter, I had to carefully consider the offer. The end result? This review…
For me, reviews need to have a benefit for any potential readership here at SG. That said, what I typically review can be either religious or secular, and I try to stay away from reviewing products that don’t apply at all. Being a believer in Christ, and writing about Christian/Judaic topics, it made sense to review this newsletter, which is designed to encourage believers in their walk during the week.
So does this newsletter accomplish its purpose? In a short answer, I would say yes. Perusing the archive of newsletters, I found the following topics to be relevant to a believer in a secular office:
- Gratitude as a business strategy
- Five ways to handle and overwhelming job
- Why is work so important?
- And more…
This newsletter seems to be, at least to me, a list of articles from thehighercalling.org website that the editors have highlighted as being excellent conversations during the week. it also features an audio message from Howard Butt and a new video from their site as well. Based off the prior newsletters I reviewed, these topics may be interesting, but I’m not a video/audio consumer when it comes weekly newsletters via email.
All that said, this newsletter holds promise of encouragement for believers, but when it comes down to it, you’ll just have to check it out for yourself…
PS – it looks like THC offers a RSS feed as well, and don’t forget that many of your favorite blogs, like this one, feature RSS feeds and newsletters.
