Overview


She wants faith, hope, and love.
She wants help and healing.
She wants to hear and be heard, to see and be seen.
She wants things set right.
 
She wants to know what is true—not partly true, or sometimes true, or almost true. She wants to see Truth itself, face-to-face. But here, now, these things are all cloudy. Hope is tinged with hurt. Faith is shaded by doubt. Lesser, broken things masquerade as love.
 
How does she find something permanent when the world around her is always changing, when not even she can stay the same? And if she finds it, how does she hold on?  
 
She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story. Every image points to the bigger picture—that God and His Word are true. Not because of anything we do, but because of who He is. Not once, not occasionally, but right now and all the time.
 
Sometimes it takes everything moving to notice the thing that doesn’t move. Sometimes it takes telling two very different stories to notice how the Truth was exactly the same in both of them.

For anyone searching for a solid foundation to cling to, She Reads Truth is a rich and honest Bible-filled journey to finally find permanent in a world that’s passing away.

What is She Reads Truth? In 2012, a group of online strangers began reading God’s Word together each day. To stay connected they created the hashtag #shereadstruth. The hashtag birthed a website, which grew into an app, & today we have this book & a movement that continues to climb farther upward. Hundreds of thousands of women come together through this online community to open their Bibles & find Jesus there, together. Aside from the many diverse ages & backgrounds, cities & countries of location, one common denominator remains to be the thread that links every single soul together: the belief in God’s Word as truth. And to continue believing, the reading & researching has to go on. She Reads Truth. The book in review is very unique in structure, as you find 2 authors, 2 memoirs, instead of one. Each find a way to bring their personal stories, joys & sorrows, & balance them on the scale that gives weight to the goodness, faithfulness, & hope in a loving God. You’ll find woven deeply throughout the chapters, God’s Direct Word. The authors engage you, but make a point to keep turning the attention from themselves & back to the God who never changes, regardless of our changing circumstances. This book is a very important read & should land in the hands of every woman who wants to take steps to remember the lens God views us through & for those who need the encouragement to hold tight to permanent in a world that’s passing away. ***** An overview of the book reads as follows: She wants faith, hope, and love. She wants help and healing. She wants to hear and be heard, to see and be seen. She wants things set right. She wants to know what is true—not partly true, or sometimes true, or almost true. She wants to see Truth itself, face-to-face. But here, now, these things are all cloudy. Hope is tinged with hurt. Faith is shaded by doubt. Lesser, broken things masquerade as love. How does she find something permanent when the world around her is always changing, when not even she can stay the same? And if she finds it, how does she hold on? She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story.

I have been a fan of She Reads Truth and their Bible reading plans and devotionals they have been putting out since the very beginning. I recently completed their Bible Study with a small group of women, so I was excited to dig into this book. The book is written from the perspective of both Rachel and Amanda, it's alternates between their two voices for each chapter. They share their personal stories of faith and what the Bible has meant to them and how scripture has carried them in their lives. While I enjoyed hearing their stories, I did find the back and forth in the chapters very confusing and keeping who's story was which was difficult for me and I didn't like the flow of the book. I still find it interested to hear everyone's stories of faith, so I enjoyed that aspect. If you're looking to hear some of the background of the founders of SRT it's an interesting read, I would have loved to hear more about how She Reads Truth came to be, and a little more background on that. But over all it was a good book.

You will find that you are she. In this ever changing world, we need to turn to the one thing that is never changing, God's Word. Raechel and Amanda encourage that.

“Place your foot on shale, and it will crumble beneath you. Grab a hold of a loose ledge, and your hand will slip. But hold tight to the mountain itself, and it will hold you up.” And with that start and introduction, you know this book is full of encouragement and Truth of God’s word. If you are at all familiar with She Reads, you’ll fully enjoy this book. If you’re not, I fully believe you still will love this book! What a encouraging, deeply felt and vulnerable memoir from both Meyers and Williams. They are so honest and open with the hard parts (and good parts!) of their journey, you can’t NOT come away from this book encouraged by the Truth of scripture and the promises of God and His goodness. Here’s three quotes that really hit: “Until then, she reads Truth – not just for answers or equations, help or how-tos. She reads Truth to find the perfect and permanent One. She reads Truth because she needs Jesus.” “God’s Truth gives our temporary lives eternal significance. It speaks forgiveness over our sin, hope over our despair, worth over our shame, and life over our death. In its light, everything matters.” “Our Savior does more than fill in the gaping holes of our brokenness. Our sovereign Lord does more than pick us up where we fall short. Our holy God holds all things together. He holds us together. His word is not something we add to our life to get us from dawn to dusk. His Word is life.” If you enjoy reading people’s stories, then definitely add this to the list! Do y’all use the She Reads app? (Thank you to B&H for a copy of the book. All views expressed are my own.) Originally posted at http://booksandbeverages.org/2016/10/26/reads-truth-raechel-myers-amanda-bible-williams-book-review/

I've never written a book but I can imagine that it takes a great deal of courage to put your thoughts on paper and then send it out to the masses where it will be judged. That's probably incredibly hard when you are doing a work of fiction but to write something very personal where you stand virtually naked before the world must take not only courage but conviction. Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams have both in abundance. She Reads Truth is open and honest while at the same time compelling and convicting. Both women take us through some very tough and defining times in their lives where loss seems to be at the center of the story. And maybe for a lot of people loss would be the center. But in their stories the consistent and permanent part of the unfolding drama is Jesus. Neither one of them were spared deep soul shattering grief but in every single scenario Jesus held them and allowed them to continue on. The hashtags for this book and movement are #SheReadsTruth and #SheIsMe. After reading the book I am even more convinced that it is appropriate. While the stories contained in the book belong to Raechel and Amanda they also have pieces of my story and probably yours too. And just as Jesus was at the center of their redemption stories He's at the center of mine and can be the center of yours too. If everything is falling apart around you or if everything is going along fine this book is for you! Through their circumstances you will begin to recognize just how central Jesus is to each of our stories. He hears, He sees, and He loves you. There is not a moment that you are out of His reach. I'm so grateful that Raechel and Amanda were willing to heed the call of the Lord to write these words because they were a wonderful reminder that all of this, the good, the bad, and the ugly, are just passing away. But there is One that is permanent that is worthy of everything. I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
