Called to walk by faith, not by sight, you still need light! Jennifer Rothschild's path, darkened by physical blindness, is illuminated by scriptural truth. And now she shares the keys to persevering and "clinging to the Sword" no matter what your circumstances. Lessons I Learned in the Light is a powerful collection of Scripture, intriguing autobiographical sketches, and pointed Bible study with personal, practical application questions that will encourage you every step of the way.
Rothschild, a regular speaker on the Women of Faith lecture circuit, offers a
companion volume to her prior work Lessons I Learned in the Dark that reads
like a charming invitation to afternoon tea. Her gentle, pleasing style first
draws readers in and captures their imaginations. Only then does she deliver
her more powerful punches, emphasizing that Christians should live by
accountability, self-discipline and faith rather than emotions. Expounding
upon quirky daily life occurrences as a wife and mom, Rothschild blends
humorous tales with the poignant reality of being blind. Struggling with
blindness day in and day out is tough stuff, she admits, yet she believes that
faith grows best amid the thorns of life, providing more sustenance, depth,
strength and inner change than "simple deliverance" ever could. Particularly
compelling is her take on grace, which according to Rothschild is "by its very
nature unfair." According to her, "God's grace is sufficient because it is
both priceless and practical." Readers will also find spiritual provision in
chapters discussing why courage is more valuable than confidence, how hope is
life's essential ingredient and why risk taking is a no-brainer. Christian
readers, beware: while this looks like a run-of-the-mill spirituality book,
its pages contain the potential to drastically alter lives. (July) Copyright
