Come hear the responding yes ringing through every verse of Hebrews.”
Everyone feels like quitting, at some point or another.
Add in the daily world events... it becomes hard to determine where to turn.
This sweet book reminds us whose we are and where we can turn.
Delving into the book of Hebrews with Stacey Thacker was like spending time with a friend.
The writing was understandable and not over my head!
Scripture references filled the pages, along with real life comparisons and personal stories.
There were so many nuggets of wisdom and reminders of just how much God loves us.
There is a Bible Study guide in back for going deeper into the Word.
I believe this book would be good for reading alone or as a group.
It's not one of those studies where you need to buy additional materials (videos, etc).
This book is part of “The Girlfriends' Guide to the Bible series” and I am looking forward
to reading those which follow.
I've already purchased a print copy of this gem (and highlighted so many key points).
Is Jesus Worth It will lead you through the book of Hebrews, igniting your faith, leading you to a place of listening and hearing the voice of God through His Word.
Very early in her book, Stacey asks the hard question;
“Oh, girls, he is speaking, but are we listening?”
This book is a wonderful resource taking you through the book of Hebrews, taking you where most of us have been, a testing of faith in hard times.
I highly endorse this book as a part of your Bible reading and study!
Is Jesus Worth It? is the first book in Stacey’s new series, The Girlfriends’ Guide to the Bible. I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment to The Girlfriends’ Guide to the Bible!
Overall, I liked this book and also really appreciated the study guide at the end of the book. However, there were a few things that hindered me from completely enjoying it. Her explanations of Scripture were very understandable and not too far-fetched, but some of the examples felt a little too trivial compared to the experiences of the people in the Bible. For example, "Hold onto Jesus like my kids hold onto my hand in the shopping mall so they don't get lost", in my opinion, is an unfortunate comparison that does not communicate the importance of holding onto faith.
Her style also was a little too much for me. She always calls the reader "sweet girlfriend" and often assumes that the reader shares her interests and values as well as repeatedly saying things like "since we are now girlfriends". She assumes a familiarity that simply wasn't there for me. I would have liked it better if the author hadn't come so uncomfortably close. But this is only my personal opinion. If you're okay with the style, you might really like it.
So I would recommend this book if you don't mind that the style is very personal. If you can, I would definitely recommend reading an excerpt before buying it.
