Book Description

How will you describe this book?  One reader called it "a glass of cool water to a thirsty soul."   Another said, "I find myself returning to this book again and again...even when I am at my best I profit from these words of understanding and encouragement. So wherever you are in life READ THIS BOOK."     

Timeless Truths for Troubled Times is a book of Christian meditations based on favorite Scripture passages.  It's not your average devotional book, though; it's deeply personal, I'm honest about my own struggles, and I don't sugarcoat the realities of life or promise that everything will be fine if you just believe.  I end each meditation with questions for personal reflection to help you go deeper and explore how God's Word and my words speak to YOUR life right now.  

Whether you buy this book for yourself, or as a gift for a friend or family member going through tough times (one reader has now bought 25 copies to give to others!), you'll be glad that you did.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Wendi Gordon has written a book using over fifty scripture verses, and she has added her thoughts at the end of each passage of scripture. She also adds several questions for personal reflection after each verse and devotional. All of the verses in this book are wonderful to go to when you experience times of trouble in your life. It is difficult to say which scripture is my favorites, but the best few are these: Romans 8:35 "Who can separate us from the love of God . . .;" Philippians 4:1 "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say Rejoice;" Matthew 11:28 "Come to me all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest."

"Timeless Truths for Troubled Times" is a wonderful collection of scripture verses compiled in one book. This would be good to use for Sunday school classes, small group studies, and individual Bible study as well as for personal devotion. These devotionals do not necessarily have to be read in the order in which they are given in the book, but can be read in any order. And there is a list of scripture passages at the end of this book to help find those verses you are looking for easily. There were no chapters in the e-copy I read, but the format of the book is different, sometimes making the reading seem a little jammed up. At some time in our lives, we all need help such as these scriptures can give, so I encourage you to pick up your copy of this book to have when you need help. "Timeless Truth for Troubled Times" will be a book you will want to keep around for reference.

From the Author

Thank you for your interest in Timeless Truths for Troubled Times!  I wrote this devotional book both to provide hope and comfort to other hurting people and also to help myself get through a difficult period in my own life.  At the time I wrote it, I had just been laid off and my husband had been unemployed for almost a year, so we were definitely experiencing "troubled times."  Focusing on the "timeless truths" of my Christian faith as I read and reflected on various Scripture passages and decided which ones to include in the book and what to say about them helped me make it through those difficult days, and I hope that reading the book will help you  meet whatever challenges you are facing with the hope and peace that God alone can give.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spirituality that is useable every day January 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
Wendi Gordon has the ability to take a incident from the Bible, write a short reflection that brings the Bible story directly into today and ordinary life. Wendi ends each reflection with a few very insightful questions to ask yourself. This book is gentle and wise. It can be used just be yourself or with a group. Enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest Struggle, Hard-Won Hope March 29, 2012
Format:Paperback
In this devotional book, Wendi Gordon writes specifically for those of us whose faith is wobbly because of the troubles we suffer. She writes from experience, not just of the global troubles that affect us all, but of long financial struggle, underemployment or unemployment, and a search for ways to answer God's call in her life. The author chooses texts that express our desolation as well as texts that offer hope. She is clear that God wants to hear all the cries of our hearts; Scripture itself challenges the popular view that one must never question God. Even Jesus (quoting a Psalm) cried "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Rather than closing each devotion with a written prayer, Wendi closes each with questions meant to stimulate thoughts and memories, to guide readers into their own prayer. This book is a glass of cool water to a thirsty soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Words of Encouragement! June 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
I find myself returning to this book again and again. Each time something "pops" out to be looked at more deeply. Ms. Gordon examines timeless bible verses in a contemporary world. Each chapter is thought provoking and easily accessible. A few pertinent questions at the end of each passage led me to some meaningful self discoveries. I find that even when I am at my best I profit from these words of understanding and encouragement. So where ever you are in life, READ THIS BOOK.

More About the Author

Wendi Gordon was a parish pastor in Pennsylvania before moving to Maui with her husband Steve in 2002. They have since relocated to Oahu, where Steve is a parish pastor and Wendi is pursuing her new career as an author, speaker, and life coach.

Her newest book, Timeless Truths for Troubled Times, is an inspirational book of Christian devotions that relates the words of Scripture to life today and offers encouragement and hope to all who are struggling. Each meditation concludes with reflection questions useful both for individual readers and for discussion at Bible Studies or book clubs. One reviewer called it "a glass of cool water for a thirsty soul."

Her first ebook, The Butterfly Principles: Nine Steps to Transform Your Life, uses BUTTERFLY as an acronym for a nine step process that can be used to achieve any major goal.

In her free time, Wendi enjoys exploring the beauty of God's creation while snorkeling or diving, going to Bruce Springsteen concerts, and reading murder mysteries.
