Glen L. Gibson's Not the Way You Thought It Would Be leads the reader in an exhilarating vicarious journey of faith through the life Abraham from the book of Genesis, chapters 11 through 25; including God's invitation to obedient faith through to Abraham's passing the torch and finishing strong.
Gibson's personal experiences and contemporary stories validate and strengthen the relevance and application of these lessons and principles from the Old Testament scripture. The chapters dealing with Choices and Consequences, Faith in Balance, and Addressing the Weak Spots offer specific challenges to the authenticity of our faith.
The "Questions for Reflection and Group Discussion" enhance the value of the book as they serve as an important study guide for personal thoughtful contemplation and stimulating group discussion.
Regardless of the juncture of your journey of faith you will find valuable guidelines and helpful direction for meeting the difficult questions of purpose, facing temptation, coping with trials, moving forward toward a deepening understanding of God's grace. Not the Way You Thought It Would Be offers positive motivation and guidance for a strong finish in your spiritual journey.
A complimentary copy of the book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
Spiritual TravelerCalifornia5 Stars Out Of 5Great for groups or personal spiritual growthMay 16, 2013Spiritual TravelerCaliforniaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Anyone who has questions about what the life of faith looks like or should look like will benefit from this book. Our church is using it in our home groups and it makes the spiritual life so clear and understandable. It is so practical in the way it addresses issues of faith and the Christian life and the discussion questions at the end of each chapter really help to process and apply biblical teaching to daily life. It's also great as a Bible study as it includes the Scripture passages at the beginning of each chapter.
