Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rothschild, a regular speaker on the Women of Faith lecture circuit, offers a companion volume to her prior work Lessons I Learned in the Dark that reads like a charming invitation to afternoon tea. Her gentle, pleasing style first draws readers in and captures their imaginations. Only then does she deliver her more powerful punches, emphasizing that Christians should live by accountability, self-discipline and faith rather than emotions. Expounding upon quirky daily life occurrences as a wife and mom, Rothschild blends humorous tales with the poignant reality of being blind. Struggling with blindness day in and day out is tough stuff, she admits, yet she believes that faith grows best amid the thorns of life, providing more sustenance, depth, strength and inner change than "simple deliverance" ever could. Particularly compelling is her take on grace, which according to Rothschild is "by its very nature unfair." According to her, "God's grace is sufficient because it is both priceless and practical." Readers will also find spiritual provision in chapters discussing why courage is more valuable than confidence, how hope is life's essential ingredient and why risk taking is a no-brainer. Christian readers, beware: while this looks like a run-of-the-mill spirituality book, its pages contain the potential to drastically alter lives. (July)

I have read all of Miss Jenn's books and find her writings illuminating to say the least. She has such wit, such insight and knows the Master. I started the book and just couldn't put it down. She impressed me.

Lessons I Learned in the Light
By Jennifer Rothschild
Publisher: Multnomah
601 N Larch St
Sisters, OR 97759
[...]

Jennifer Rothschild is such an inspiration to many people, and I am one of those people. She is an author, musician, and in full time ministry. In this book she shares lessons that she learned, that we can also learn and benefit from. The amazing thing about the title is that she is blind, so the only light that she sees is God's light.

In starting out she uses God's word to show that he truly is the light. 1John 1:5 says that "God is Light" and Psalms 119:105 "lamp unto my feet, and a light to my path". God truly is light and she shows this in the twelve chapters of her book.

We need to cling to God's word, for it is our Sword of Honor. Scripture tells the story of Eleazar, and how he clung to his sword in the battle, and when it was over he could not let it go (2 Samuel 23:9-10). The Bible is something that we can hold on to today and use it in our battle field. To do this we need to spend time every day in it. When we don't it is an issue of pride. It is like we are telling God that we don't need him. We all have many excuses, but none of them are good enough. We are to cling to the word and use it and to do that we must know it; and to know it we must be read it and study it everyday.

Sometimes we are reluctant. The author says "Most of us feel a tinge of reluctance when it comes to change, because it means we must take a risk and release some of our control." What we need to do is release and trust Jesus. "It is no risk to trust the One who is totally trustworthy." Isaiah 26:4. You may not have the confidence to face the change, but God can give us courage.

Girls, we cannot encounter the Living God in His Word and not be changed! "Lessons Learned in the Light" is a call to arms... to wielding your Sword of the Spirit. It's endearing and real and shockingly vulnerable. It's gently and gorgeously written. But, above all that, it's steeped with Power! Enjoy and be blessed!

This book really spoke to me each day when I would read a chapter as part of my quiet time. I passed the book to my co-author, Kim Webb, and she adored the book as well! I highly recommend to all and I just ordered her newest book.
