If God is who he says he is and can indeed do what he says he can do, why are so many Christians living mediocre lives? Beth Moore thinks that there is a simple answer to this question: unbelief. Therefore, in Believing God she challenges us to take God at his word, believe his promises and, as a result, live fuller lives. Don't be afraid to set aside your unbelief and experience the great blessings of God's promises.
Best-selling author and Bible teacher Moore, staunch Texan that she is, uses
all her homespun charm and folksy anecdotes to convince Christian followers to
throw off their characteristic unbelief and start "believing God." Moore is
bent on proclaiming a message of renewal and spiritual combativeness against
the defeatism so common in today's churches. With her typical can-do style,
she energetically espouses that the main reason God has kept his believers on
earth after their conversions is so they might "succeed" in the here and now.
Why then, are so many Christians living lives of mediocrity? Quoting Hebrews
3: 19, Moore says the primary reason is "unbelief." She uses the biblical
Joshua's story of faith, belief and courage to admonish contemporary
Christians. Moore also presents a five-point system to stimulate the
weak-kneed to victory, encouraging readers to speak the following statements
aloud throughout the day: "God is who He says He is. God can do what He says
He can do. I am who God says I am. I can do all things through Christ. God's
Word is alive and active in me." Bible study enthusiasts will flock to this
newest offering from Moore, a popular author with a sterling reputation. But
while biblically accurate, much of the book is wordy and repetitive. A little
restraint might have given this garrulous resource the zing it now lacks.
