Dee Brestin is a mentor and friend. She has been used in huge ways to grow me in my faith. I always praise God for her work. This is no exception. The book continues to bless and use God's word wisely. She tackles a hard to understand book, The Song of Songs, and makes is accessible to the everyday reader. Yet, keeping God as center view. You can tell she was passionate about this work. It comes through her writing.

I think this book would benefit the reader the most if it was done with someone else so you can discuss what you are learning. It truly is a Bible study and at the end of each chapter there are questions to take you deeper into the word and application. This can be done alone (which was how I read it) but a group of women would be best.

If you ever wanted to look into the Song of Songs in a balanced, God-centered way, get this book. It will bless you immensely.

I received a copy of this book free of charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

You can get a copy of the book from Amazon.com here.

This is a must read for our times! This little book is informative and helpful. It is informative because it exposes information about how technology really changes us--not just our phones. It also gives a brief history of technological changes and the effects they had on society. It is helpful by being convicting and offers solutions to help one be certain they are wise in the use of today's technology.

We are made to be worshipers. We all worship something. The age of the smartphone displays the priorities we value in our times. I am thankful for this resource for the way it is balanced in view and approach. It was life-changing for me because it aided me in the thought process of what our phones are doing to us and others by perception and the time we use on them. It can be productive or wasteful. Technologies always come as a two sided coin, one for good and the other for bad. I wonder how many people really just take the time to think about their smartphone uses and how it really is changing our minds, relationships, and worship?
 
Do read this. It is timely. It is needed. It is good.
