Believe

_140_245_Book.2518.coverBELIEVE
365 Devotions
By Randy & Rozanne Frazee
A devotional that will help you with understanding your beliefs and why. The book contains a year of daily devotions divided into three parts: Beliefs, Practices and Virtues. The three parts or sections are divided into ten subjects. Each subject deal with the topic of that part. An example: Beliefs covers God, Personal God, Salvation etc., Practices cover Worship, Prayer, Bible study etc., and Love, Joy, Peace etc. are covered under Virtues. The authors give a scripture verse and a short devotion that helps you to understand the daily verse. You can follow each part in order or be adventitious and do the ten subjects in one section then change to another subject. The devotions are Biblical sound and will be a blessing to your daily readings. The writing in this book will help you understand what you believe and who you are becoming. The hope of the authors with this devotional is to help you to think more like Jesus, act more like Jesus and be more like Jesus.
I believe this book would be great for discussion groups, family Bible times and would make a great gift for young and old. I know there are many different devotionals available but if this one can help you with your beliefs that it would be worth adding to your library. There are no dates to follow, just numbers of the day (Day 1, Day 2, etc.) making it useable any time.

JOYSPRING
A Devotional Adventure with Living Water
By Kathy Woollett
This book is small but is inspiring and fun to read. Kathy start with a parable that she wrote, a story about a small spring that become a stream that travels down a mountain. On the trip down the mountain the stream encounters many obstacles that the stream has to overcome, with the help from others and learns to take those obstacles on head first. The parable tells the story how our lives are affected by different things that come into our life, like rough roads, boundaries and other blockades. It also shows how when we are guided by Christ those blockades and boundaries are easier to handle. Each devotion has a scripture verse, a short devotional story based on the parable and a few thought questions to help you understand each devotion. Each devotion covers a small part of the parable, taking you to the end of the streams travel. The results of the parable will help with a deeper understanding of God’s help and living a full life.
The author writes in her A Closing Word chapter:
“Passing through pressing, menacing cliffs and gorges or overcoming obstacles will happen many times in our journey of faith. Equally there will be many pleasant valleys and still water times too.”
There is less than a hundred pages but the book is very good book for discussion groups and would make a good Sunday school study.

The Age of Promise

_140_245_Book.2482.coverTHE AGE OF PROMISE
Escape the Shadows of the Law to Live in the Light of Christ
By Randy Robison – Cohost of LIFE Today
Old Testament teaching and New Testament teaching, do they go together? In this book by Randy Robison you will see how they do belong together and how they are relevant to our lives now. The book consists of ten chapters that covers some of the promises of the Bible and how they connect Old and New Testaments. The promises are; the promise of deliverance, sacrifice, the law, the chosen people, the priest the temple, judgement, the kingdom, the end and eternity. Each promise is covered in detail from the Old Testament to the New Testament showing the connection to Christ. Randy digs deep into scripture for the truth, which will give you a new understanding to many of the promises. The promise of deliverance was for all who will follow Christ not just those Israelites in Egypt. The other promises are as important today as they were when God made them in the Old Testament. Most of the information will be familiar and is a good review of the Bible covering many points that we should all know.
The book can be used in discussion group and would be helpful in introducing new believers to the Bible. We all need to understand that the Bible is meant as one book not to be separated into two. Randy’s book offers his view and needs to be read with an open mind as some of his points may differ from what you have read by others.

A Path to Restoration

A PATH TO RESTORATION

 

A Study Guide

 

By Lois Brittell, PhD

 

A guide that will help you on your path to restoration. The author has put together very helpful information together in four parts. The parts guide you to who God is and how He is a help to all who let Him into their life. You will learn what He has done, what He asks of us, what sometimes happens and restoration in Him. Each part is divides into three parts and will direct you through studies on His creation, His identity, loving Him, loving your neighbor, dealing with anxiety, depression and other area of life that need Him. Lois shares scriptures that will help as well as stories about her own life, her struggles and how God has helped her. Most of the sections can be read as a devotional and Lois has given questions after each short section that will make you think about your own struggles. Many of the sections can be used for Bible studies and some for your own personal problems you and/or family may have. Lois makes references to her other book, It’s All About Him, many times, so if you have a copy that will a plus for you.

 

This study guide will be a help in understanding the Bible and, in my opinions, a must read for everyone. I would recommend having a notebook for journaling, this will aid in answers some of the questions. The author is a licensed psychologist and a born-again Christian that hopes her book can help all who are seeking restoration.
