Fearless prayer by Craig Hazen
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 He is and not who we may think He is.. He challenges believer to higher levels in prayer with God . Will you allow God to bring you to higher levers! This book was give to me by ebook for review purposes by netgalley.

I just finished a new book called A Song of Home by Susie Finkbeiner. The book was released on the 28th. It takes place during the Dust Bowl era. The book shows the reader what the time period is really like. It is rich in detail of about the characters. The book is told with Pearl narrating the story and from her point of view. Her Mother is not always at home . At one point her Mother is gone and finally returns but she is pregnant . She eventually loses her baby and ended up in a depression .Her aunt and uncle show kindness and support to her and her brother during her time of need. The story has lots of Christian values and qualities woven throughout. I was sad to see the story end. There are two books in the series before this book.
This book is classified as historical fiction by the author. It is a voyage by Anath who tries to kill Leviathan. He prepares for his voyage for 3 years. Anath wants to get Leviathan back. The wise man in his town warns him to be careful of Leviathan and not take the voyage. He still wants to take this voyage and get some revenge. The pictures are beautiful . The story is taken from scripture and weaves in wonderful parallels with scripture. What will happen to Anath and will He be able to defend himself from Leviathan?
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.

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…
