The Shelter of Gods Promises- Book review

This is my very first book review ever! Book sneeze sent me a complimentary copy of the Shelter of Gods Promises by Sheila Walsh. This has been a while ago and I finally got thru this book. This book was not what I envisioned it to be. I found this book hard to read, in fact I found it a bit boring. Perhaps it is due to the fact that this is a completely different kind of book that I am used to reading. I am more of a fiction book gal. In this book Sheila Walsh is a storyteller using her own personal experiences with scriptures. Each chapter covers a different promise of God. There is ten promises of God. Sheila Walsh searches scripture for what God has promised us and in turn what these promises mean Whether you are going through the feeling as if you don't believe anyone can love you or you are afraid and feel alone. If you know God's promises but, not sure how they apply to you,. This book is for you. She reminds us that no matter what we are going through, we are not alone. This book can lift your spirits. Oh! and this book includes an in-depth bible study plan in the back. For me, this was extremely helpful. This book would be wonderful for small bible study groups. To sum it up I find this book honest, and challenging with biblical truth. This is not a book however I would read again unless I was reading it for a bible study.
I received a free copy of this book from Book Sneeze in exchange for an honest review.<>

  1. This sounds like an interesting book for me just because I like Sheila Walsh and remember her from the 700 Club. Thanks for posting about it.
