Fast-paced, witty, entertaining, and inspirational, the writings are modern day renditions of historical stories. In the short story, The Best of Everything, based on Hannah, you gain a better level of appreciation and thankfulness for what God has already done in your life, which will provide you with strength to endure in the midst of a crisis as well as give you patience as you await new blessings. Lust and Lies, based on Samson and Delilah, reminds us of the temptations of lust, the importance of honesty, the dangers of sin and the significance of repentance. Traveling Mercies, based on the parable of the Good Samaritan, teaches us not to place limitations on how and through whom God may send a blessing, and our responsibility to help people whom we often do not know.
Baby Blues, based on Abraham and Sarah, lets us better understand the importance of timing, patience, and consequences of operating in Gods permissive will versus Gods perfect will for our lives. A Sprig of Hope, based on Tamar, acknowledges that tragedy, sadness and betrayal are an unfortunate part of life, and yet ultimately there is healing, restoration and happiness if you place your trust in God. Sword of the Lord, based on Jephthah, confirms that your past cant define you if you give your future to God and that everyone at some time or another needs to forgive.
I highly recommend this book and it's stories packed with themes full of Godly wisdom.
You can also read the modern day stories of Samson and Delilah by S. James Guitard, of Tamar by Jacqueline Thomas and of Jephthat by Terrance Johnson.
It is an encouraging experience to read story after story of the grace, power and love of God.
I purchased this book because Victoria Christopher Murray was one of the authors, so I thought all of the authors were good. To my disappointment I wasted $17.00 on this book. Read morePublished 11 months ago by MERT
