nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Thought Provoking Wonderful BookSeptember 26, 2019nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mark Batterson has written an inspiring book with Double Blessings, How to Get It, How to Give It. This talented author gives readers a blessing with his book! Using stories from the Bible and real life Double Blessings shows readers the multitude of ways God blesses us and that we in turn can bless others.
This is an extremely well written and well planned book. The author's writing style is easy to read and flows effortlessly. He gives examples of passing along a blessing he has received (double blessing) which are heartwarming to read.
He uses Scripture freely to illustrate and teach. He uses the stories of Elisha and Elijah as well as Abraham and Isaac to show that we can receive and also give blessings that are from God. Sometimes a kind word or deed is a blessing to someone.
This is a thought provoking, encouraging book that will change your view on receiving and giving blessings. I highly recommend it to everyone. It definitely receives 5 out of 5 stars from me. A copy was provided from the publisher, but these are my honest words.
M_Fitzgerald5 Stars Out Of 5Double BlessingSeptember 26, 2019M_FitzgeraldQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Double Blessing is a Christian living book by author Mark Batterson. There are two parts to this book (1) How To Get It (2) How To Give It. The author suggests the book be read with a friend or family member.
My favorite part of the book was the Umbrella Blessing. The blessing of God is like an umbrella, an extra layer of protection against the elements (an extra measure of grace during tough times). It is not about health, wealth, and prosperity.
I also found the trivia bits dispersed throughout the book to be interesting. I learned that Leonard Nimoy, who played the role of Spock on Star Trek, got the idea of his famous Vulcan salute from his Orthodox Jewish upbringing. He used one hand, instead of two, but the Vulcan greeting, Live Long and Prosper, is an abbreviated version of the priestly blessing (p.50).
Even though some of what the author mentions in this book I have heard before I still recommend it to fans of Christian living books.
Chris5 Stars Out Of 5One of Mark's best books yet!September 26, 2019ChrisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One of Mark's best books yet! Mark does such a great job helping to explain and define what blessing is and isn't. And (spoiler alert) the "double blessing" is not the prosperity gospel...it's not if you do X, God will do Y. I love how Mark clarifies what God's blessing is in this quote from the book:
"What is the blessing of God? It's GodGod with us, God for us, God in us. To reduce it to anything less dishonors God and devalues the blessing. God with us is joy unspeakable and the peace that surpasses understanding.21 God for us is His favor, the X factor between the best we can do and the best God can do. And God in us is power, resurrection power."
