Kirkus Indie Book Review
A debut book presents a scripturally based approach to the promises of God in an uncertain world.
Coleman encourages readers by describing this place with God, a phrase she uses often to denote a believers personal relationship with God as a safe and comforting space in the midst of an often cold and cruel human reality. This place is characterized by four main qualities: acceptance, forgiveness, victory, and purpose. The author is careful to explain throughout her work that even though these qualities are often lacking in the world, the believer can be confident of possessing them within this place, this relationship with God. For instance, other people may or may not accept others for who they are, and any approval may come and go. Nevertheless, God loves and accepts individuals no matter whathis love is unconditional. Likewise, outside of this place with God, forgiveness is never guaranteed nor is at all possible, depending on what has occurred. In relationship to God, however, Jesus was crucified on the cross so that you could experience the benefits of true forgiveness. In an imperfect world, Coleman explains, believers can find a place of perfect peace with God. Throughout the book, the author deftly utilizes specific Scriptures and biblical stories to stress her point. For instance, Coleman underlines the tale of Josephs relationship with his brothers in the chapter on forgiveness; she highlights the story of David and Goliath in the chapter on victory. The authors writing is lucid and approachable, and her tone and subject matter should bring encouragement to those battling with everything from troublesome family members to difficult job situations.
A brief yet heartfelt and uplifting religious guide.
Felicia is an author who was called to write out of her heart and passion for the word of God. She was raised in a Christian family with parents and grandparents who taught her about God. Even though she got off track at times earlier in her life, she is a living testimony of Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. She believes that having a personal relationship with God is vital in life. Being an author was never an intended goal for her, but she yielded to the will and grace of God which has proved to be a life-changing experience.
