    Highly recommended

    I have read all her books and there is always something new each time I re-read them. Excellent group study book and wonderful conversation sessions.

    A Good Bible/Book Study

    I liked this book. While I agree with a previous reviewer that if you want to "learn" more about the Lazarus account you might be disappointed, I disagree that you will be bored. I didn't "learn" anything from a purely intellectual stand-point, but my heart and spirit did learn more about my own personal tendencies in regard to loving God, loving self, and loving others. The message of loving well is one that I think is always good no matter how many times a person hears it, and if ever I find myself bored with learning more about love it means I need to take a look inside me and find where the disconnect is.

    This is a book primarily written for women and the guides in the back make it very useful for group study and discussion.

    This is the third book in her series, but I don't think this book needs to be approached as such. I think it stands just fine on its own, apart from the other two, and a reader having not read the others would not be lost or confused or left wandering and wanting.

    Come Forth

    God doesn't want us to just live in him; he wants us to die to ourselves so that we can be resurrected in him! In Lazarus Awakening, Joanna Weaver shares how this ought to look in a Christian life. While we might have a tendency to just skim over this amazing story of Lazarus' resurrections, there is so much we can learn from his story. His story speaks volumes about God's nature, his will and how he wants us to live. God love us.he loves me.he loves YOU! He wants to be allowed to perform a resurrection in your life so that his will can be done and you can live and walk in His will. He is calling your name, just as he called Lazarus, and he is simply waiting for you to "come forth" so that he may work in and through you. Joanna's book takes this point and many others even deeper so that the reader can really understand how to take Christianity from a "head thing" to a "heart thing."
    I really enjoyed this study of Lazarus and how his story is applicable and relevant in our lives today. Each chapter takes an in-depth look at a portion of his story and gives application for our lives. I never thought I could learn so much about myself and God's love for me from such a short passage in scripture. This book is very well written and is easy to understand. There is a companion Bible study guide provided in the back of this book and I really think this would make a great group study; it would be great to be able to discuss this book in a group. The only thing I didn't really care for in this book is the randomly placed things inserted in each chapter. These boxes usually contain a short quote from someone or a deeper look at a portion of the chapter, but they are oddly placed and break up the chapter in a strange way.
    Disclaimer: I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to post a positive review.
