A Holy Fear by Fox

Today is a day when many fears are evident all around us. They have always been there but these are strange days where fear abounds. Fear improperly placed is not good. Fear placed in the One who holds all things together is good. This book helps you to see and move misplaced fears to the right fear of the Lord. 

This book was very helpful taking the reader through the reminders of the goodness and sovereignty of God. It is a great reminder that any Christian needs today. It encouraged my soul to look to God instead of my own fears of the unknown. 

This book is an encouragement to any Christian in their walk today. It was an easy read and scripture filled. Any reader will grow from reading it. I appreciated all the truth of God's word that was included in each chapter. I also think if you read it with some friends it would be nice for encouragement and praying together. We need others to remind us not to fear things of this world. We need others to point us to the only Fear which is fear of God because we are in awe of Him as our loving and good Father who holds all things together.

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

Is It Abuse? By Strickland

This book is a must-read for the church today. Too often we have given good intentioned or naive advice to people suffering intensely in relationships without wisdom. This needs to stop now. God has a lot to say about abuse. We must know what His word says to be wise counselors to people in these difficult situations. That is where this book comes in hand. It helps show you what the word of God says and how to walk it out appropriately with those who are suffering. We must be able to do this well as a church to really help the hurting. 

As a biblical counselor, I recommend this as a must-read. I think it is a resource that will be used over and over again. Sadly, cases of abuse are on the rise so we need to know how to identify it and help. We are privileged to hear someone's story if they share it so when we do hear hard stories we need wisdom to know how to help instead of hurt. This is for everyone. Not just counselors.

I did receive a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher but also purchased my own because it is a book I will use over and over again.

Book Review - Habakkuk by Gresh

I had the opportunity to review this new Bible study. Habakkuk is my favorite book of the Bible and I like the author so it is no surprise that I loved it. 

The author takes us through the book while connecting it to other helpful parts of scripture to increase our understanding. It also has a helpful timeline that is important when working through books of the prophets that can seem more difficult to understand. 

The author made this book of the Bible accessible and understandable to anyone interested in studying the Bible. It offers great questions and charts that are extremely helpful to any learner. It can be done alone but would be best with a small group. 

The study includes the opportunity to listen to the author teach through a weekly podcast as well at no extra charge. 

Overall, I say it is a great study that would be worthy of your time for the sake of your growth in Christ.
