I love religious books though I often struggle to read them quickly because I want to absorb every word. This was the case with this book, I absolutely love this book and I recommend it to everyone. It gives you a working knowledge of the wisdom found within the Bible that can and should be used in daily life. Reading this book doesn't make you feel pressured to believe in one faith over another it is a testimony of the author's own experience and that just happens to relate to a good 90 plus percent of us.
One of my favorite parts of this book is that it has reflection questions as well as prayers. The reflection questions can be done alone as a personal Bible study or in a group, male or female. They do not make you feel judged in any manner yet they really do a wonderful job of forcing you to look inside of yourself and be honest with who you really are.
I can't wait to read this book again and redo the questions and prayers as I know that as my relationship with got evolves my answers to these questions will change as well. If you have a spiritual friend this book would make an excellent gift for a birthday or Christmas. Just remember that "pushing" your faith on someone can really be offensive and not well received.
Revelation, Understanding and Practical Application is the heart of this book on Biblical Wisdom. His personal experiences and some of his failures are shared by the author along with scripture, prayer, and decrees. He also gives things to think on, exercises and tips at the end of each chapter to put wisdom into your life on a daily basis.
Kyle Searcy has written an easy to read and understand book; one that stirs up the desire to reach out for the wisdom of God either for the first time or like in my case once again! Its something that I had studied some in the past and had a passion for but let it slip. His book was NOT boring in any way which I know it could have been. Several things that I found interesting (just to wet your appetite) was his encouragement to embrace wisdom as a leading grace in our lives. Another was his explanation of the meaning of the word "wisdom" and that wisdom is the insight into the true nature of things. I'm giving this book 5 Stars- I enjoyed it that much !!!
I received this book FREE from Chosen Books for an honest review.
The Secrets of Biblical Wisdom is a wonderfully written book. I, personally, appreciated Kyle's insights and found them most helpful. Wisdom is no longer the secret it once was for me. This book is instructive and entertaining. I hesitate to use the word entertaining but the inclusion of so many interesting illustrations and applications make it so. You can read in days or hours what it took years to put together. I will say too that the book was a bit slow getting started but once it got going I could hardly put it down. Thank you, Kyle for this book on Wisdom. This was a complimentary book from Chosen Publishers.
This book really changed my life immediately! The Presence of the Lord and His wisdom are much more real to me. As I read this book, prayed and listened for the voice of wisom, heaven opened over me!! I began to apply some of the practical tips provided for the reader. Suddenly, I realized that answers to questions that I asked the Lord months ago began to come, prayers were answered! Ofen, even before I could ask, crystal clear direction came to me. Even people around me who needed more wisdom began calling with praise reports. They too had experienced breakthroughs as a result of applying the solid, Biblical approaches in the book to their lives.
