--ANN VOSKAMP, New York Times Best Selling Author of One Thousand Gifts
"Wonderstruck is a game-changing book. Feinberg's brilliant writing captures you as she points to the God who has captured her."
--JUD WILHITE, Senior pastor of Central Christian Church, Las Vegas, Nevada
"Feinberg turns exegesis into an art, delivering findings that invite the audience to touch, taste, smell, and see God's handiwork throughout the Scriptures and in their own lives."
--ED STETZER, President, LifeWay Research
"[Feinberg] succeeds in keeping the reader engaged, entertained, and edified . . . [She] raises questions that linger in the mind after the book is closed."
"We dangerously underestimate the power of wonder. . . Margaret recenters wonder at the heart of our relationship with God, with seismic results. This book shook my soul awake and made it impossible for me to continue following a God of my own design. Her work is captivating, staggeringly honest and refreshingly deep, stirring my mind, heart, sense, and soul to consider God in ways that are reshaping me."
--NANCY ORTBERG, Author of Looking for God
"Wonderstruck invites you to open your eyes to the delights, joys, and gifts of God all around. You can't read this book and remain the same--it will change you so you see yourself, others, God, and the world around you in a more beautiful, life-giving way."
--BOB GOFF, Author of Love Does

Through plumbing the depths of experiences from her own life, Margaret Feinberg invites us to reflect on mis-shapenness in our own lives. Are we harboring bitterness, too? How is our prayer life, really?
In a day when many Christian writers care mainly for their ideas, Margaret Feinberg obviously cares for her craft, which I find incredibly refreshing. I especially loved the way book elicited an easy-flowing attitude of prayer and reflection, like freely wandering the garden with God (rather than feeling like a note-taking student). The very first evening I found myself differently responding to memories and observations, captured by the wonder that would normally pass me by.
I especially love the way Margaret sets life contemplations on a firm respect for who God has revealed himself to be in the Scriptures and in creation. She experiences life just as we (her readers) do, shares deeply from her humanity, and shepherds us toward the Father as she struggles to hold tight to Him herself. Martin Luther once said that "We are all mere beggars showing other beggars where to find bread." For me, Margaret Feinberg's writing exemplifies the spirit of humility and the spirit of showing inherent in this quote.
More specifics about the book itself...
While I both enjoyed and was moved by Wonderstruck, I might have had my expectations a little out of place regarding how awed I would feel in the reading of it. Other than the initial chapters, rather than leaving me feeling awed, it left me ready to be awed.Read more ›
For those deciding which book to purchase, the Bible study (white cover) has five daily lessons, lasting about 20-30 minutes each day. You'll dig into scripture verses and apply the Wonderstruck lessons to the theme of the week. The book version (black cover) is a testimony of discovery from Margaret's personal experiences. Both books work well together and enhanced my spiritual journey. The stories are imprinted in my mind...I think my favorite is the old table and the lesson of hospitality!
Once again, I feel challenged to look beyond the commonplace, to look past my usual and actually SEE the wonder of God. He is, after all, Emmanuel, God With Us. He is the Creator. Looking at the oceans, the stars, the mountains, the valleys, the flowers, the trees, one can't help but realize that the One who thought up all this is pretty wonderful.
Having read the words of Wonderstruck, I am doing a little more looking past the usual and seeing the Wonder of God. That, for me, makes a book an excellent read. It has moved me from where I was when I started it closer to where I want to be.
for you. But don't think it is a quick little read-through...Oh, No, No, No! You want to take it in small doses and chew
on it and meditate on it and believe God for what He is going to do with it in your life. And believe me...it does not disappoint.
And it will re-affirm your faith in an Awe-Inspiring, Wonder-working, Ever-Loving God. The God who loves you more than
you could ever love him. The God who will open your eyes, mind and heart to His marvelous deeds...until, like the Apostle
Paul...you will be wonder-struck blind...so that you might more clearly see God's will, journey and love for your life.
This isn't actually a Student Workbook but they are available if you buy the Video Series also for $70.00.
I just wanted to do this Book for my own personal Bible Study...so, didn't want to spend the Seventy dollars
but it would be worth it IF you were using it for a small In Home Study Group. I do however wish that I could have gotten
my hands on a single workbook for my own individual use. Maybe in the near future this will be made possible. I am
sure people will be clamoring for one.
LET GOD USE THIS BOOK TO OPEN THE EYES OF YOUR HEART.....HIS WONDERFULLNESS IS ALL AROUND YOU!
YOU JUST NEED TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE WONDERSTRUCK!
Always Happy To Share Reviews of Fabulous Books!
