Editorial Reviews

Review

"Submitting to the order God has in mind for us figures heavily in this sweetly narrated lesson on how to handle interruptions in the ideal life we make for ourselves. The author, who has written other spiritual guides, is a wife, mother, broadcaster, and minister who uses biblical stories, especially that of the prophet Jonah, to show how unexpected setbacks are God's way of redirecting us toward a destiny that is more suited to our true nature--and His will. Though many of these parables and lessons could drift into sentimentality, Robin Ray Eller's narration elevates them into the realm of memorable inspiration. Even with her youthful speaking voice, she makes a mature and appealing case for the author's message."

Unexpected interruptions in life and schedules...truly the story of my life.

In writing Life Interrupted: Navigating the Unexpected, Priscilla Shirer has practically written much of the story of my life. And she has never even met me! How is this?! Apparently my life situations and struggles are not quite as unique as I once thought. What a comforting realization.

Of all of the books I have read in the past few months, I would say this one speaks most specifically to me. As a matter of fact, I believe that you may discover the same for yourself if you so choose to venture into the waters of Jonah's story as told by Priscilla.

Jonah's story may be a bit familiar to most who have read the Bible or even heard Bible stories throughout their life. However, I have never read nor thought of Jonah's story in quite the way Priscilla Shirer presents it in Life Interrupted. For probably the first time ever, I actually found myself identifying with Jonah rather than judging him.

Have unexpected, even unwanted interruptions come your way causing your life course to be frustratingly altered?

Have you had a very large virtual fish swallow you in order to force you back on a path or mission you were trying to avoid and even run from?

Then I share with you something Priscilla says on this matter,
"...No matter how remote and relaxing, nothing fills the void of the abandoned purpose. Nothing feels the same anymore when you're running from God."

Have you made a mess of your life in the past?

Then, I echo a quote Priscilla shares by a lady named Carol Kent when she says,
"My mess has become my greatest message.

I have only just completed week one in this study and find myself actually looking forward to reading it. I use blueletterbible.org to look up the scripture passages as it saves time. I find that this study is easily applied to daily life as a woman challenged by the pace of today's world and someone sandwiched between the needs of the elderly and the needs of the very young. I am a professional christian counselor who follows a biblical model for healing. I have a Master's Degree but I do not desire yet another exhausting woman's bible study that could require hours of work on my part. We are also watching the videos that come with this study. Twelve woman's groups meet in our sanctuary every Wednesday. Good study so far! Workbook format.

Priscilla is one of my favorite speakers! Her book, Life Interrupted, did not disappoint and actually spoke to the deepest parts of my heart! I love her take on the story of Jonah. She brought such insight that I had never thought of.

We are thrown all sorts of curve balls in our lives - things we never expected or wanted to happen. But, Romans 8:28 tells us that all things work for the good of those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose. This has reminded me and challenged me to see the unexpected as an opportunity.

Format: Paperback
I've been participating in the group Bible study format using this book. Unfortunately, I have been disappointed with the material.
The study lacks content as a book as small as Jonah is stretched to six different sessions with five days/lessons in each. Consequently, Schirer repackages the same question, "How are you currently rebelling against God?" over and over and over again with only slight variations. She also tends to import a smorgasbord of content from other Bible passages, some of which tends to very loosely relate, contributing to the feel that she lacked the content necessary for this length of a study. The smorgasbord of imported scripture also results in so many tangents, that it is easy to lose sight of the central message of Jonah and the beauty in the story's simplicity. Shirer's illustrations further muddy Jonah's message as they are often quaint and lack gravity (I.e. Driving the wrong direction down the freeway = rebellion from God).
The study assumes a struggle with God's will and leaves room for nothing else, which makes it difficult to relate to if you feel that you are currently at peace with God/not overtly or knowingly rebelling. The primary conviction Schirer focuses on is a conviction of sin. Conviction of God's love feels like a sidenote, which is unfortunate because it is perhaps the most effective antidote to sin.
If you are in a season of life where rebellion and struggle with God's will rings true, than this study may be just the thing for you. If not, you will struggle to relate, and feel frustrated by its lack of depth.

I had heard so many great things about Shirer and this book, so I splurged and bought it. It started out wonderful, but then in the middle it seemed to just be repeating everything it had already said. So I still think it's a positive book, but it almost seemed like there was a word limit so she kept repeating herself to fill the spaces maybe?
Very good, true stuff in that book though!

Especially good to read if you are currently feeling like your life is just not turning out like you planned. Good and bad interruptions can be Divine interventions and when looked at that way your whole perspective changes. Great for a book club.
