The God of New Beginnings: How the Power of Relationship Brings Hope and Redeems Lives based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
We hear it often, the gospel of Jesus is good news. If you don’t hear that often, consider why. The point is, in a world full of bad reports and churches that are neglecting the true work of gospel, we need to know what is real religion. The God of New Beginnings is a book which delivers this in a very personal and powerful way. The authors present real life moments where people came face to face with the redemptive power of Jesus. With great use of biblical precedent and a drawing from their own ministry work we are given a walk through of what is possible when people take hold of the passion Jesus has given them. The fact is I’m not big into books about testimony. I picked this book up with the hope I would at least have some basic inspiration or maybe a sermon illustration or two. What I came away with was hope. We live in a world that is increasingly removed from one another, a world which begs for being alone yet also craves being near to others. This book has redefined the term relationship in my heart. It has shown the need to be present and not just physically there. Without the practice of being involved in the relationship, the redemption shown in these stories does not happen. Churches must make the impact through relational ministry. This book will speak well to many people, even those who don’t like reading testimonies. It’s really the heart of Jesus on display through others lives into others lives. Pick it up and take your time going through, I’m sure you will enjoy it as well. *I received this book from the publisher through Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review. These are my personal thoughts.
