Book Review: Amazing power of faith by Merlin Carothers

Faith

 

Good evening guys ! I am sorry that I haven’t been posting as much, I am back at university so I haven’t really had the time to post!  Anyway I recently finished reading the book ‘Amazing power of faith’ by Merlin Carothers recently. When I bought the book I simply bought it because of it’s title, but I didn’t have many expectations of it.

This book is a really good book but I think the title is rather misleading as it wasn’t really discussing anything in regards to faith apart from the fact that we are saved by grace through faith. However I think it’s a great book for someone who has just been recently saved or for someone who is having a tough time in their walk with Christ especially regarding trials and temptations. As a child of God, trials and temptations will definitely come and sometimes when they do come you start doubting if you’re actually saved or not. In regards to temptations, we all fail sometimes and guilt comes knocking at our door and we then question that, if we are really saved and we really are children of God why then do we keep failing, and as a result we are then persuaded that we are going to hell. In this way I think if someone is going through a time of questioning, or a time of conviction do read this book because it will help you to put God’s word into perspective regarding temptations and trials. 

The message which the book focused on was a true eye opener for me because as children of God I’m sure when we first got saved one of the first verses which was mentioned to you as you were accepting Christ was John 3:16  which states ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, so that WHOSOEVER BELIEVES in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’ but a lot of people (or maybe just me) listen to the bible verse but overlook it and sort of think, well what next? So after being saved you still have the same temptations and you think, Lord, I keep making the same mistake, I keep falling into the same temptations, addictions and or sins. Through this some people will feel like, I’m not worthy to be called a christian and because I’m a sinner I’m going to hell and they completely give up. However these feeling and thoughts are from the enemy and I strongly believe that through reading this book and studying the bible verses it mentions, you will overcome!  Change your life today .

Stay Blessed.

Book Review: A new song by Pat Boone

WOW! So I really feel like this (excluding the Bible) IS the book I have been waiting for. I simply think that this book is amazing because although it was written many years before I was born it resonated with me on a deeper level.  Before I start reviewing this book let me just mention that I love reading testimonies. I love knowing what great works God is doing in people’s lives. This book is just a major testimony to me.

To summarise; the books sets the scene by taking us through Pat’s life from where he was born through to when he married his wife and when they had their children. The book then  takes you through the main issues that Pat had, as a son, a teenager, a husband, a music star and as a father. It also takes you through issues that his wife and daughters faced. Through this Pat receives the Holy Spirit and his whole life and well as the lives of members of his family just began to change in such an unimaginable way. If I tell you anymore about this book I’d spoil it, so I suggest that you read it if you want to see how the Spirit has affected other people’s lives.

Stay Blessed !
