Penelope Wilcock believes that, deep inside us, we can come to recognize what is really, truly of God. Using the markers of Scripture, conscience, nature, observation, the faith community, and the faith tradition, Penelope helps the reader find God's road of blessing in regard to money, relationships, the home, and the acceptance of responsibility. The outcome may not bring prosperity, but it will probably include joy!
"Every now and then, I see something move, and I feel the reality of it, and I start to live it in the everyday; touch the live pulse of something that is more than a theory or a doctrine. A defining truth that gives structure and meaning to the relative chaos of my life.
"Then, when I've been on that trail for a while, and I know it works; know the truth of it down to the soles of my feet, know I can trust it--I want to share it. I don't mean just a bright idea: I mean the sort of truth you can trust so completely that you can rely on it for your income; the sort of truth you can trust your children to; truth that you can lean on when you have to decide who to marry and how to live."

As I started reading this book I realized that it is a way to help in our everyday Christian lives. When life is filled with so many choices and a lot of them are wrong for a Christian then we have to pray and rely on God to help us go down the right road.
There are four chapters and each one deals with our lives as the first chapter is titled "What Does it Mean to Follow the Road of Blessing?" As we being to follow the correct road for a Christian we have to leave out all the old habits and try to be a better person and pray that we can overcome the old things. We are all sinners but by the grace of God we can be forgiven. We only need to ask and believe with out hearts and God will forgive us and wipe the slate clean.
Penelope Wilcock is a new author to me and I think this books is a great one to study as we read out Bibles. She brings out some things that I have never really thought about.
A Great book for yourself and also a great gift book for a new or old Christian.
Thanks so much for Kregel Publishing for sending me this book for me to read and review.
