crash this book
This book spoke to me from the first page as I saw myself as some one God couldn't use due to my endless character flaws. But only a few lines in each chapter.
Page 3 was good In every season of my life, God has sent reminders to confirm that he has perfectly designed me... He's called me to do.
The quotes before each chapter were good- keepsakes to be penned in my journal and shared with others in letters.
I was drawn to study the authors of the quotes and disappointed - the quotes were deep but not the authors.
some of the book shocked me how he said some do not know God speaks to them. He was referring to Christians, Can this be true, that his children do not hear or did I miss something. Lastly, Furtick wraps up his work with a reminder that we are more than conquerors in Christ. This does not mean that we can do anything we want to do, but that we can do anything God wants us to do
some of the modern speech turned me off. I do not think I would purchase this book but if it was 5 dollars maybe yet or rather better borrow it! But while there are some good spots, far too much of the book is simply not so good.
