Product Description

Just like you, Margaret Feinberg longs to live in such a way that makes her feel fully alive. She suspects she's not the only one whose sense of splendor and delight has faded with the demands of modern living. What do we do when holy awe is replaced by unholy indifference? When hope is diminished to a manageable emotion? When love becomes a fleeting expression in short supply?
In Wonderstruck, Margaret invites you to toss back the covers, climb out of bed, and drink in the fullness of life. Learn to unearth the extraordinary moments in every day life, recognize the presence of God in the midst of your routine, and discover peace in knowing you're wildly loved. You'll find it is possible to regain the missing spark of mystery in the day-to-day. Winsome yet compelling, whimsical yet profound, the stories from Wonderstruck will inspire you to fall in love anew with God.

Publisher's Description

Let’s be honest: it’s far too easy to go through day-to-day life without a sense of the mystery, the marvel, or the awe of God’s presence. Have you ever felt your relationship with God isn’t as vibrant as you want it to be? Have you ever felt like God seemed far away—even in the midst of devotions, prayer, and church?

 

You’re not alone.

 

We Were Created for Wonder

You were created and designed to experience wonder. Woven into the fabric of our humanity is an innate ability and desire for the wonder of God. It’s felt in the moments when you watch the sun melt behind the horizon, when you reach out to cradle a baby and smell the sweet scent of new life, when you can’t help but smile as you witness two wrinkled souls renew their vows to each other. Such moments remind us we were made for something more than deadlines and debt, carpools and coffee breaks. Yet despite such wondrous moments, we can still find ourselves going through the motions of faith.

 

Whether you’re:

 

A long time follower of Jesus or still figuring Him out

Unemployed, overly-employed, or an entrepreneur

A creator, innovator, or conformist

Grumpy, ebullient, grey-haired or bed-head

An average Joe or have-a-gym-membership-but-never-go

A superhero (of any era), supermom, superdad, super grand, super great grand, or don’t feel particularly super at all

 

No matter who you are or where you’ve been—if you’ve lived a life where you’ve seen it all, done it all, or feel like you’re past it all—God still longs to take your breath away.

 

Isaiah 29:4 records God’s desire for you: "Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder."

 

Do you see it?

 

God is busting at the seams to display His glory, power, and might in your life. And He wants to give you the greatest gift of all—Himself.

 

Yet why do we pass by the wonder of God unaware?

    Margaret is wonderstruck by her Creator. As she searched the night sky for the Northern Lights, it came to her that this was the posture we were to take in our spiritual journey. We are to live in holy expectation that God will meet us in beautiful, mysterious ways. We are to stay awake with eyes wide open.
    Yet we slumber. Instead of holy awe we have unholy indifference. “What are the wonders in your own life that you fail to marvel or even sleep straight through?” Margaret asks. “How often do you pass by God's presence and handiwork unaware?”
    She shares stories to show how you can join God in his miraculous work in others, making dry bones come alive, breathing restoration.
    Margaret hopes that by reading this book, “you will rediscover, or possibly discover for the first time, the wonders of God stirring in your own heart.”
    She suggests a companion Bible study, partnering with another, to begin sensing God's presence in places and experiences you never expected.
    Margaret ends her book with suggested activities for thirty days of discovering wonder.

    I think those last thirty suggestions are the strength of this book. I was not very impressed with Feinberg's story telling. I found no exceptionally well crafted sentences that captured my attention. However, the concept, being awake to the wonders of God, is compelling. The last section, with the thirty exercises to be awake to wonder of God is what makes this book worthwhile.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

    I want to announce the newest book I have read, given to me by Worthy Publishing. Wonderstruck by Margaret Feinberg.

    Our lives often lack wonder, because we do not open our eyes.This is what Margaret Feinberg is writing about. Her book is full of things that made me underline them, things that make sense. Her writing is bright, the word pictures are fresh in my mind from when I first saw them. Her book reminds us that we are in an Earth full of wonder all around us. She writes about the beauty of Creation, of relationships, of rest.
    These are some of the word pictures that she wrote:
    The evening alpenglow of a Colorado sunset when it looks like God has scattered thousands of rose petals across the snow for our pleasure.

    The woods of Scotland, looking like a forest in Middle Earth- dark, green, misty, and elvish, on a walking tour.

    The aurora borealis on an Alaskan night as you stand before a window when you should be asleep to watch the sky.

    A horseback ride through a pine wood where the trees are holding as much snow as they can bear, and every time you touch a limb you are powdered with crystals.

    These are the Wonders of life, the wonders that most of us miss. That is the meat.

    The bones to avoid include the fact that Margaret has defended the egalitarian position in the past. In 2008 she defended the nomination of Sarah Palin for Vice President in a debate on CNN against Dr. Baucham. I am a complementarian, and I hope I could defend why I believe in Biblical roles as timeless. The Biblical gender roles are eternal, and there are many applications that look different for each family while staying within those commanded roles.

    The second bone is three commentaries on Genesis, mentioned in this book, all written by evolutionists, one of whom also believes in homosexual "marriage." I am a No Death Before Sin Six Day Creationist, a position that even skeptical Theologians agree makes the most hermeneutical sense.
