My Blogs and I

My name is Retha Groenewald and I am a Christian who is passionate about the Bible, and am a permanent Bible student. Yes, I love to read, meditate on, and teach the Bible.

I have three blogs:

Bible Fascination – getting to know the Bible better

Discover Bible Treasures – Journey with other heroes and heroines and solve Bible puzzles and quests

Retha Groenewald – Author blog – Fantasy novel The Four Faces



Bible Fascination is my blog where we can get to know the Bible better. This is my second blog and I launched it July 2012.

The three main pages of Bible Fascination are:

Book Reviews

I love reading and began reviewing the books I read during February 2013. The books I read and review are Christian fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction topics that I read are not all Christian topics. My favorite genre is Christian fantasy but I read different genres. 

Under Book Reviews you will also find the different Reading Challenges I began taking part in during 2013. Have a look and join me with some or all of these reading challenges. I find the reading challenges organize my reading habit in a more productive way. For example there are a few challenges I am taking part in that focus on the books that I always wanted to read, but never get to.



Under general I post topics that are not  filed under Book Reviews or Gospel.



I love reading the Bible, and especially the Gospels. A few years ago I read the Bible chronologically. It was a great experience. Reading the Bible in the order that the events took place, instead of in the order of the books, made the Bible come alive for me in a different way. The characters in the Bible became real people living in real times.

The other great advantage of reading the Gospels in chronological order, is that you read what the authors had written about a certain event together at the same place. Thus receiving the full picture of what had happened.

I post about the Gospel in chronological order and have divided the different stages of Jesus’ life and ministry in different categories.

  2. My SA friends are in a few places. Cape Town, George, and Mossel Baai. My heart was left with some of the teens/girls I worked with in Mossel Baai. I am hoping I get to return there again.
