5-Star Review of "The Bible Promise Book for Hope & Healing"

Review of The Bible Promise Book for Hope & Healing

by Karin Dahl Silver


Barbour’s Bible Promise Books are perennial bestsellers, with millions of copies in print. Now, The Bible Promise Book is available in a brand-new hope and healing edition. Featuring dozens of timely topics—including Addiction, Rest, Peace, Forgiveness, Eternity, God's Love, Salvation, God's Power, Prayer, Comfort, and Perseverance—you will find hundreds of verses from God's Word that will speak to your daily needs.The Bible Promise Book for Hope and Healing is ideal for personal use and for ministries.

MY REVIEW:  Looking for hope and healing? This book is a wonderful resource for those who are hurting, abused, damaged, or broken.  Looking for a good devotional. This would be a nice book for that as well.  Using appropriate scripture to fit each subject, the author speaks to them in a Biblically accurate fashion.  Topics are arranged alphabetically and cover from A through W.  Some topics covered are:  abuse, broken-hearted, courage, depression, encouragement, frustration, grief, healing, joy, loneliness, provision, questioning my purpose, reconciliation, shame, trials, unworthiness, vulnerability, and worry.   Each topic includes a short devotional (maybe a couple of paragraphs in length) so that it can be read in a short period of time.   For instance, over a lunch break at work or over coffee at breakfast.   The topics then share a number of verses that relate to the devotional topic.   
      I shared several of the devotional topics with a friend this past week as I was reading them.  I read them aloud to her and she said that they truly spoke to her and were easily relatable to her to own life.  This is one of the best devotionals on hope and healing that I have read.   
      I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to those seeking hope and healing. 
     I received a kindle version of this book from netgalley and Barbour Publishing.
