New Book Review 8/17/17

Still waiting : Hope for when God doesn't give you what you want
by Ann Swindell
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2017

Reviewed by Diane Busch

Have you ever wondered why God hasn't healed you from something?  Have you ever wondered why God seems to be silent about something important in your life?  Do you have disappointments you are holding against God?  Do you struggle with shame?  Do you feel like you don't measure up?  There are so many things in life for which you may be "still waiting".  I recommend this book for you.

Are you dealing with an illness, a deformity, an addiction, a shameful habit, something that makes you feel "different", a burden, a secret, a problem so big that only a miracle could fix?  Please read this book.

Ann Swindell has a way with words that leads you to trust God and hold onto hope even when you don't see progress. She uses scripture and the story of the "woman with an issue of blood for 12 years" to help tell her own story of waiting and to give you hope and courage.

These two quotes from the final chapter of the book help sum up what the author is teaching:
"Hope--when it is founded in Christ--will never truly disappoint us. Hope in anything other than Christ will fail."
"No struggle, no trial, and no suffering can keep [God's] unquenchable love from us."

A copy of this book was given to me by Tyndale House Publishers for review purposes.

New book review

Wow! The Good News in Four Words
By Dandi Daley Mackall
Illustrated by Annabel Tempest
Tyndale 2017

Reviewed by Diane Busch

What a great concept for a children's book. It makes God's plan of salvation so easy to understand and remember. The rhyming text makes it fun for children to listen to the story. The colorful illustrations give the children much to look at and point to while listening.  It is delightful and educational. 

At the back of the book there are listings of scriptures under each of the four words for further explanation. 

I highly recommend this book for families, church libraries, Christian schools, preschools, and   Sunday schools.
