You will have a difficult time putting this book down. As Gregory transparently walks you through her personal struggles, she captures your heart and soul and tears it wide open so that the power of Christ can heal you and increase your faith. Lately, I've read many books where the authors don't seem to relate to the reader at all...it spells: author has a contract and must meet deadline. Not so with Gregory. This author is a vessel for God's voice. He has gifted her through her own brokenness where she can be used by Him to save others.
Quite frankly, out of all the books I've read over the past several years, I cannot imagine a better book that I'd recommend...I'm certain you'll read it over and over (as I will) and you'll be looking for the release of Gregory's next book...let's all pray there is one!
One of the things that I really appreciate about Silent Savior is that the author does not use the typical Christian catch phrases that tend to wear me (and I'm sure others) down. Her explanation of our Savior is a unique one; one that I believe can reach people in a different way. I feel that this book would be beneficial for both believers and non-believers. Her observations and explanations are very easy to understand, but she digs deep to get the reader to rethink their relationship with our Savior.
Every Christian can benefit from reading Silent Savior and I really feel that non-Christians can be changed by this book. I think that the reason most non-believers are non-believers is because they have not heard about God in the way that A.J. Gregory explains Him. It's hard to believe in God when you can't hear Him and Silent Savior will help you hear Him.
(From the back of the book:) "There are times in our lives when it's not just hard to hear God - it's impossible. We've all been there. Knowing on some deeper level that God is present no matter how things look, but still feeling the trickle of doubt. And wondering why the God whose faithfulness is never supposed to fail seems to be turning a giant deaf ear toward us. It's not always like this, but silent seasons are common in the life of any believer... In Silent Savior, A.J. Gregory navigates that labyrinth of sorrow, pain, angst, and doubt on the way to a soul-deep recognition of God's infinite faithfulness and perpetual, if sometimes silent, presence. And she encourages you to keep believing he's there even when that silence seems deafening."
Gregory uses Scripture and experience (both her own and that of others) to point readers to the truth that God is always there, even when we can't hear Him. One of the points that sticks out the most from this book is her take on the story of Job. Even though Job has all but lost hope that God will ever answer him, he never stops talking to God. He might be screaming and yelling and completely off-base, but he was still trusting that God was there, even when God wasn't talking back. We need to have faith like Job, faith that keeps us coming back to God, even when we can't hear Him.
