I received this book for free from Booksneeze to review over a year ago. The title is "Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World" by Dr. David Jeremiah. When I read it a year ago, I did not like it. I can't remember all the exact reasons, but I am remembering that it was boring. And since I didn't want to do a negative review, I put it on the shelf and forgot about it. At the end of 2012, I was going over the list of books I had read and scanning my bookshelf, I remembered this book. Then the guilt set in because I had gotten the book, agreed to review it, and not done it. So I reread the book. Here is the 2013 version of my "take" on the book. Some of the review will be a repeat of this paragraph~
Book Review for Booksneeze
"Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World"
by Dr. David Jeremiah
"I have read this book twice in the last year, before writing this review. The initial time I read the book, I didn't like it ~ maybe because I was hopeful that the current events would change and we would not have to deal with what is described in the book. Upon reading the book for the 2nd time, I realize that the world is still heading in a one way direction toward destruction, especially the United States. There are so many different philosophies being preached as Truth, that are very far from Biblical Truth. In the STAY CALM chapter, the author very clearly points out the Biblical truth for Salvation referencing Matthew 7:14, John 8:24, Acts 4:12 and 1 Timothy 2:5. These verses are not the ones you will hear being preached by most of the tv preachers, but they are Gods truth. In another chapter we are encouraged to STAY CONNECTED. On page 112, the author writes 'The church is not a building. No, it is not even the people. It is actually the living presence of a holy God in a fallen world. It is the tangible evidence of an invisible hope, dressed in the skin of all the people who have found that hope.' Wow! Each chapter of the book starts with the word Stay ~ as Christians we aren't to waver in our faith, hope, love of Christ. We are to STAY, CALM, COMPASSIONATE, CONSTRUCTIVE, CHALLENGED, CONNECTED, CENTERED, CONFIDENT, CONSISTENT, COMMITTED, CONVINCED."
I recieved the book for free from Book Sneeze in exchange for my review.
