A sceptic - enjoys
on 14 September 2010
I was recommended this book and was pretty sceptical. I think it is light reading that needs to be read lightly.
I realise that more conservative elements would nit pick some of the theology on offer here, i.e. the simple proposition that ou life on earth can never be our best life when the believer has the heavenly hope. However there are a lot in Joel's words that a warm and encouraging, but at the same time calling the believer to humility and service which reflects the teaching of Christ. It was also packed with numerous "war stories" which illustrates his points nicely and do not make this a pie in the sky book, which a lot of the American Word Faith people are accussed of.
I would give it three and a half stars.
