LysaTerKeurst knows what it means to walk in faith, starting from the cry she uttered years ago, "How do I take my broken life and allow God to use it for His glory," to her current position as president of Proverbs 31 Ministry.
Walking in Faith will change the way the reader...
- recognizes God's opportunities for growth
- hears God speak through His Word
- understands herself as a unique creation of her Heavenly Father
- survives life's hardest places
Lysa's new book is filled with stories, Scripture, and encouragement for readers to discover the deeper truths of God.
As a bonus, Lysa has provided a Bible study section to help readers apply the principles in Walking by Faith.
TerKeurst goes through the five phases of developing trust in God: leaving, famine, believing, death, and resurrection. With a friendly, personal style, nationally-known speaker and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries TerKeurst shows that, though the journey can be frightening, both she and God are there to help anyone brave enough to undertake it.
I believe God gives every woman a dream. When a woman begins to walk in faith toward God, He will give the dream, TerKeurst explains in the Introduction. Later, TerKeurst presents the structure of her book: In the following chapters, I want to talk with you about the five phases I've identified in the Bible common to people who have stepped out with God in pursuit of their dream.
Though TerKeurst's tone is friendly, and she tries to keep her ideas simple and easy to follow, the personal Bible study section at the end of each chapter can be intimidating and confusing. Instead of boiling it down to key points and questions for her reader to focus on, TerKeurst assigns several passages' worth of reading, giving only the general idea the reader is to ascertain from the reading assigned. The tone, style, and organization of this book are all pretty good, but TerKeurst has eliminated an audience for her book by failing to clearly explain the application section to readers. Readers who can understand vague instructions in their Bible studies and apply them with little guidance, probably don't need a step-by-step guide for following God in faith. I hesitate to recommend this book to a new Christian because of that, which is a shame, considering that Lysa TerKeurst shares her personal experiences genuinely in this book.

KarenLargo, FLAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Thumbs up for this one!July 13, 2015KarenLargo, FLAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4My women's Bible study is about half way through What Happens When Woman Walk in Faith. I have heard woman after woman say this book is meeting them right where they are. They are finding it interesting, practical, real and relatable. We've really seen the Holy Spirit work in many of the women this session, and feel that this book has been a real motivator to our group! The questions at the end of the chapter need a little tweaking, we've found, to make them a little easier for the women to answer in a way that is conducive to a small group format. We have done that, as we prepare for each session, so are good. But for someone without the willingness to take the time to do this for the group, they might want to consider this before purchasing. Other than that, I heartily recommend the book!
