“Ridiculous Faith” is the story of Shundrawn Thomas’ personal journey of faith. His story is based on illustrations on faith from real people introduced by Jesus in his teaching. Thomas presents the reader with a whole new level of understanding and a fresh perspective on important principles of faith exemplified by the lives of these Bible personalities. He provides guidelines for taking a spiritual inventory; self-examination and introspection for building trust, as well as exciting lessons on standing firm, and a challenge to” step out in faith to follow God.”
Shundrawn reveals the essence of faith in powerful, new ways as he processes the experiences of these Bible characters, their personalities, their abilities, hopes, strengths and weaknesses. I learned to put myself into their daily life circumstances to sense the unique ways that God dealt with their needs; needs common to us today. From the man born blind, I learned more of God’s mercy, love, and the importance of placing my confidence in the power of His word. I gained a new appreciation for the importance of complete dependence on Jesus as my Shepherd and a new level of trust. I also learned of the importance of listening for His voice through the lesson of the nature of sheep.
Thomas provides guidelines for application on the need to prioritizes and find a balance in a life of prayer, Bible study, worship, and service. He stresses the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus, and of allowing Him to orchestrate the circumstances in our live to reveal His truth and build our character in His image.
Thomas writes in a reader friendly style. “Ridiculous Faith” is stimulating, encouraging the reader to get more out of life while developing a rich, meaningful faith journey. Highly recommended.
Some of the Scripture seemed off. According to the author, "Paul realized that God ultimately causes the circumstances of life to benefit those who hope in Him (see Rom. 8:28)". According to the KJV version, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
The other challenge I had with the book is not supporting examples on some of the claims by the author. I do no have any specific examples to give.Read more ›
