Praying with Jane by Rachel Dodge

Praying with Jane" is a devotional book based on Jane Austin's prayers. It is very personal and practical. There is a prayer first . Then the author explains how it is practical and then has a prayer. There are many topics Rachel reviews in this book. She says pride and vanity cause blindness. It is easy to lose sight of God when we are prideful. We need to look at life from God''s perspective. If we do not our pride can blind us to our weaknesses. Another example is Jane asked for the Lord's temperament to be infused into her. We often can be challenged by people around us and by having His temperament in us we can interact with His character around us and be more Christlike to others who challenge us. Another example is We are to commend ourselves to His goodness instead of worrying about our concerns. WE often obsess over situations we can not change. Proverbs 18:10 the name of the Lord is a strong tower. …

Lies men Believe

'Lies  Men  Believe' is   a non fiction book.  It  addresses the lies men   have in their thinking and    then directly    points to what the truth   what the thinking  should be. This  book   addresses the   concept that   We can not earn  God''s favor .   Our  standing with God  is  based on what God has done for  us in dying on the cross.   We are created in God's  image and not what others say.  Another lie is  I have a right  to be angry when  things do not go my  way. We  do not have a right to be angry.   This  book is  very freeing since  it   addresses many   ways  of thinking  that can put men in a trap and  keep them from  moving ahead in their  Christian life and their life in general.  It is  well written and personable   The  wife of the author  wrote  the  book Lies Women  Believe and this  book is the men's   version   .   I would recommend this book for  pastors,   any  Christian man.  It  will  help you  grown in your life as a Christian.    …

Faith in the Shadows Finding Christ in the Midst of Doubt by Austin Fisher

Faith in the Shadows reaches out to answer many questions about Christianity. So often people do not get their answers to their questions. The author says it is good to have questions. He addresses the problem of evil, hell, science and how God can fit with the questions in these areas. He encourages people to look for the answers and seek God in the midst of the answers. He tells believers to not stop believing when they have questions and God can meet us where are questions are. So often people stop following the Lord when they have doubts. The Lord can meet us where we have doubts and cares about our doubts. He is faithful. When we have the answers to our doubts we have a more secure and firm faith. This book "Faith in the Shadows" was given to me by the publisher and netgalley for review purposes only . I appreciate this opportunity to read and review this book.
