This book.....OH, this book! I was moved, inspired and fascinated. This book reminded me that His love and grace is written all over the Bible! I couldn't quit talking about this book with my Women's Bible Study! I encouraged each of them to purchase it! Thank you Jennifer, you once again moved me and inspired my heart! This world needs to be reminded more of His love and this book does just that!
So many parts of this book completely wrecked me! I needed the reminders and I didn't even know how much! On page 52 Jennifer describes the Book of Ezra and it moved me in ways I can't even describe. After I miscarried, we decided to honor our baby by naming him. We named him, Ezra. Her opening to Ezra was, "In Ezra God's Persistent Love Restores Me". She then writes about Ezra and the Israelites and the slow process of restoration after the temple and the city of Jerusalem had been destroyed. Even through the slow process, we have to remember that God loves us and is rebuilding and restoring. After our miscarriage, I felt lost and broken. Since then, we have struggled with infertility and was reminded in this book of God's love during the restoration and rebuilding process. It's so easy to forget when you're in the middle of it but thankfully, He never forgets us!
This book is such a good way to understand what each book of the Bible is about and how God's love is exhibited in each of them. It can also be given to somebody who has a hard time understanding the Bible. I'm certainly not saying it should be read instead of but definitely in addition to the Bible. It's a good reminder of the love presented in each book! This is a must read and a book to keep on your nightstand for frequent revisits. Five stars all the way!
