Book Review: Graciousness by Crotts


This was a great book on balancing truth and love. It was convicting and helpful. It took the reader through stories of how people sometimes do one end well and are weak on the other. It was nice to see how too much truth without love is hurtful yet too much love without truth did the same exact thing.

The book also walks you through the Scriptures and examples of truth in love done well, God's way. Jesus, of course, is the perfect example of this and we studied His approach as well.

It is an easy read. A short book. It is beneficial to read and ponder then ask God for the grace in your life needed to walk this out better. We all need that!

I received a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

Book Review: Kiss the Wave by Furman


As a chronic pain sufferer, I found this book to be extremely encouraging. As a biblical counselor, I found this to be a helpful resource. This is a needed book for our time. There are too many resources out there about suffering that are not beneficial. This author is balanced. He takes a clear and honest look at suffering and the sovereignty of God.

He writes as if you are talking over coffee in a practical manner. It is an easy read while packed with edifying truth. It challenged me to draw nearer to God through my pain. Dave shares stories that are relate-able to other sufferers. But most importantly he guides us through the scriptures for courage in Christ through the hard times.

I highly recommend this book. It is worth your time to read if you are someone who is in the middle of some sort of suffering or if you know someone who is suffering. This book paired with his first book, Being There, would be the perfect set of books to offer to anyone in your life who is hurting.
