Book Review and GIVEAWAY!: Where God Finds You






 
 
“Have you ever longed to crawl into the pages of the Bible? To walk on the Judean hills or feel the spray of the Red Sea? To know what it’s like to confront a king or pour perfume on a Savior’s feet?
 
“In forty devotional tales, Where God Finds You breathes new life into ancient Bible characters. Through reflection on Scripture and prayer, you’ll discover a place in each of these lives of vulnerability, tenderness, truth and love – a place where you can find God….and where God finds you.”
 
Either on your own or in a group, live with and learn about more than forty Bible men and women
 
 
Book excerpts:
 
My dreams have blessed me, and my dreams have cursed me.
 
I rested my head against the rocky walls—my gloomy prison chamber—waiting for my death. Like the howling desert winds, in a fit of fury my brothers had swept me up and hurled me here. And where was here? This cistern must have a name, just as mine was Yosef. But unless I am rescued my name will be no more.
--From Chapter Two: Joseph, Son of Jacob
 
MY THOUGHTS
A wonderful book to read, sit back and relax a moment, take a moment to reflect, or read a chapter before bed.  Each chapter has a story, a Bible verse that correlates to it and questions.  This would be a wonderful book for a book club or a Bible Study women's group.  This is a book that will never grow old, one that you'll be able to turn to time and again.
