I Declare War by Levi Lusko review practical advice for the Christian life

#I  Declare War# is  Lusko's   way  of  having us look at the areas  that hold us back  in our Christian life.  Paul  talked about  how He  wanted to do   something but   was hindered.     The    book is excellent and very personable.  He  warns  Christians to be ready   for the battle like a soldier is ready with his armor. He   talked   about how your   words  can be harmful  and like a weapon.  He   shared  his struggle with   bridling  his   tongue  after   having  difficult   middle school  years with bullying.  He   draws the reader into the book with such personal  examples.   He   talked also about how   we must train our  mind to be positive  like the navy seals are told.  They  view any  obstacle   from a  positive angle.   Lusko  goes on to teach  keys   to overcome  the battle with yourself which we all face.   There is  a DVD   series and a study   guide for the book.   The  book would  be excellent for a  Men's or Women's  Bible study  group. It  would  work …

Fearless prayer by Craig Hazen

Image
Here is the review about a practical and helpful Christian book    on prayer.

'Fearless prayer ' is written by Craig Hazen. . The author encourages the reader to climb to deeper levels with God in prayer. He addresses the barriers that believers may have in understanding who God is and the challenges that might keep them from a deeper prayer life. He tells believers to take advantage of the command to ask anything in prayer. He feels believers do not ask and believe in prayer. He also talks about what it means to live in the vine and have our nourishment from the vine and not ourselves. We are to be dependent on the vine and not leaning on our own strength. We are to lean on God first during our daily challenges and not look to ourselves. In America we get used to looking to ourselves to solve our problems and not look to God. Dr. Hazen is a professor on apologetics at Biola and encourages believers to know God for who …

The author is very open about all He has suffered with a father who never told him He loved him until He was dying. He tells the reader how moving it was for his dad to tell him He loved him and then He worked through the needed forgiveness He had to give his dad.

Hope in the Dark by Craig Groeschel

You will find the review   below of  Hope in the Dark  by Craig  Groeschel.
The book Hope in the Dark is a practical, personal teaching on how to approach trials. It is a very valuable tool for the Christian life. He uses the prophet Habakkuk faced trials as He watched the injustices in his country. He approaches trials in these steps: doubting, waiting, embracing and with God's goodness. He thanks God for who He is first and then thanks Him for all He is doing in His life. God's character ; such as , His faithfulness, sovereignty, kindness, mercifulness, slow to anger,, every present, all knowing, just, holy, loving is what the author tells the reader to focus on during trials. We can count on His qualities in our life even when things are changing and difficult around us. We can look to the Lord God to see us through the storms by viewing the trials through is character which is constant and unchanging. God h…

Unshakeable Hope by Max Lucado

Review of Unshakeable Hope  by Max Lucado:

 Unshakeable Hope is a very helpful and practical book. It draws the reader to remember all the many promises of God. There are promises for our weariness by coming to Him when we are tired . We are to stand and believe the promises of God are for us and can be used in our life. We are stamped with His image.W e do  not  have any condemnation since we are God's . We have been given victory over death according to 1 Cor. 15:54. God also does not like it when we are proud according to 1 Peter 5:5. He guides us to have a humble spirit . We need to know when we pray great things will happen according to James 5:16. He wants us to have an believing heart when we bring prayer requests to Him. Max showed how much He loved His unborn granddaughter before we were born as a comparison with how much God loves us. He also reminded us since people are made in God's image we should treat others with honor and respect since they are made in His image.…
