When God doesn’t make sense… Part Three

BOOK REVIEW: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE: Holding on to your faith during the hardest times: DR. JAMES DOBSON: 1993: 250 PAGES

  • Establish your foundation not on ephemeral emotions but on the authority of the written word. Our feelings about His inaccessibility mean nothing! His word is more reliable than our spooky emotions.
  • Don’t lean on your own ability to understand, and most importantly don’t lose faith. I believe this is the most aggravating part of the whole saga, cos as humans we rationalize everything, and when we don’t understand things, we are thrown into disarray. We should not try to understand everything, we should aim to trust completely.

When God doesn’t make sense… Part Two

BOOK REVIEW: WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE: Holding on to your faith during the hardest times: DR. JAMES DOBSON: 1993: 250 PAGES

It moves on to explain what the author terms the ‘the Betrayal Barrier’ – the point where Christians get to where they feel betrayed by God about the situation they have prayed, fasted, and called on men of God or a group to pray with them. It exposes the feelings which even Christian leaders and matured Christians face when God has not spoken to them about the matter and they have to watch things spiral out of control as they get or even give the sad news.

I am strong, God is Stronger.

 

DON’T LIMIT GOD: Imagine yourself Successful| Andrew Wommack| 2014| 118 pages

When a preacher of over 30 years gets a message from God, that despite his thriving ministry, he has been limiting God, he sits up to understand HOW? In his understanding of how he limited God, he is able to share through his book, ways by which we limit God and how we can stop it. I don’t need 30 years to know that I have been limiting God in certain areas of my life, so when I saw the title of the book, I was drawn to it wanting to know how to stop putting God in a box.

BOOK REVIEW: THE PARABLE OF DOLLARS – PROVEN STRATEGIES FOR YOUR FINANCIAL SUCCESS BY SAM ADEYEMI /PNEUMA PUBLISHING/2001/ 179 PAGES

The Parable of Dollars is a direct reference to the popular parable of the talents in the bible as told by Jesus Christ, only this time, the author Sam Adeyemi uses money – a universal language to illustrate in contrast to talents or God-given gifts as it is popularly related to. The use of dollars was to represent the universality of money which is the now the case study in this text.

the parable of dollars

The book has eight chapters and hard hitting questions at the end of each chapter that forces you to stop and think about the changes you need to make to change or improve your financial position. It speaks to mainly to Christians and strives to squash age-old beliefs relating to prosperity and finances. He writes like a trainer/lecturer making sure that the reader participates and gets the message.
