Wonderful book that is encouraging for women who have established faith but seem to be falling away in discouragement. Timely and convicting and points one right back to scripture to see, believe and trust in God's word.
Every so often comes the book that has the end goal of setting your faith on FIRE. Unquenchable is that book. It comes along to prompt us to be on FIRE for GOD. I don't know about you but every so often I my fire gets extinguished and I'm not as excited about my faith, about studying my bible, about my relationship with God. And after reading this book I realize that I have to prompt myself to get on fire for GOD again. Because He's there ready and waiting to pour out the water. The thing is to never let your thirst for God be quenched. Keep fueling the fire so God can keep supplying the water.
Most of us yearn for unquenchable faith, faith that is unwavering whatever our circumstances. Realistically though, most of us have times when God seems far away, and we find our faith wavering. Carol Kent has been through the fire, and she can help us take that flickering flame and turn it into a blazing wildfire. Carols unquenchable faith is an example to us all. In this book, through her personal stories, the stories of others, and Scripture, she helps us learn how to develop our own unquenchable faith. This book is an excellent, well-written tool to help us develop our own faith into a bonfire that will draw others to the Lord.
Carol's metaphor of how one's faith is compared to the different aspects of fire describes all the seasons of one's faith. Each chapter brings a different, yet building perspective on how our faith stands the test of trials, anquish and how God uses these moments to heal our wounds and turn the embers into a wildfire of enduring, everlasting faith. Best use of a metaphor I've ever heard that describes faith from all of life's struggles. Many examples of how real peoples faith have been tested and endured over time. Highly recommend this book!
This was a book I didn't want to end -- "Unquenchable" was unquenchable! Carol's personal story went dangerously deep as I realized that none of us are immune to facing that feeling of separation from God that comes at times in the firestorms of life. Unquenchable is filled with riveting stories of life challenges that led to positive change in people who openly shared within the pages. At first glance, this appeared to be a book about suffering, not my idea of something to be savored, but it quickly turned to be a book of hope, reality and inspiration. "Unquenchable" kindles a fire of desire within and touches often neglected areas of the heart that need to be opened. It's a lesson in humanity, forgiveness and understanding ourselves and others on a whole new level.
