"Margaret Feinberg is a modern-day David. With eyes on the heavens, His Word in hand, and all her heart turned towards His, she tells the wonders of His love in ways you've never known. Who in the world doesn't need joy like this?"
--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

For example, after becoming newly acquainted with the tradition of Lent, she felt a desire to give it a try by giving up something—but what?
“That year I felt an overwhelming sense that God asked me to give up something rather odd: prayer. . . . My sense was that God didn’t want me to give up all prayer, but lengthy prayers. Giving in to the peculiar sacred echo, I committed to offer God only three-word prayers until Easter. The spiritual practice proved more difficult than I imagined” (Margaret Feinberg, Wonderstruck).
The insights Margaret Feinberg gains from this experience are really worthwhile. And I love the idea of three-word prayers! We all tend to waste words with God by reciting formulas and prayer-speak. Intentionally selecting the words that get to the meaning of our prayer is a discipline we could all benefit from practicing.
The book was loaded with practical insights gained from the trenches of life. The chapter on forgiveness held many gems of truth. Wonderstruck is definitely worth a read.
This review, along with additional book quotes, first appeared on my blog, ChristyBower.com.
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!
