WOW - this book is incredible - this author is honorable and is intelligent and interesting. I cannot tell you how moved I was. I found myself crying and didn't realize it until I needed a Kleenex. I felt what he had to say was mammoth to those who read it and life changing. He talked to about a mighty GOD and how we can come to HIM and why we should. He talked about JESUS and the beatitudes and the great commission. How this changed peoples lives including some prisoners lives in "The Rock" - it was amazing. Ya'll you would be missing out on a life changing book if you do not get this, this is a book that is for new Christians and those who have been Christians for a long time - I have been one my whole life - I am a pastors daughter and I was told several things - and one main important thing was that you do not take something that someone - a preacher or anyone that is telling you something - without Scripture to back it up you do not believe them - and two if they do give Scripture to back it up you make sure that you read the Scripture around it to make sure that they are not twisting the Scripture around it to fit what they are trying to teach you. Well this author is genuine - they backed everything up he was teaching me with Scripture and that Scripture was genuine - not twisted. I was very impressed, because most books the author twists things to fit what they are trying to get across. I loved this book. I received this book to read and to give you an honest review.
What ever your beliefs in life, this book will take you further, and will challenge your thinking. You will gain a new perspective on life. History proves that Jesus of Nazareth walked this earth, and whatever status we give him, we know he spoke words of power - and I am thankful that some can "interpret" his words into our culture, relevant for 2015, better than I can. I appreciate good books, like this one, to expand His teachings into my life. I often think that radio and TV interviewers (like Sheridan) have some common ground with Counsellors (of which I am one) in that they ask probing questions that help us go a little bit further into ourselves, and break out something that we were not fully aware of yet. This book does just that - like an interviewer, like a counsellor - some challenging digs, that for if we are ready, we will benefit. Love is the law behind laws, as Sheridan reminds us. Buy this book in multiple copies - for yourself and those close to you...........
This book is a great devotional based on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. It is split up into 90 "chapters" or devotionals, each starting with a scripture verse, then followed by Sheridan's commentary, and finishes up with a couple of questions to get you thinking and digging deeper into the Word. Sheridan's style of writing makes this book easy to read, whilst providing great insight and food for thought. You can read it straight through like a book, but I feel you'll get more out of it by reading it as a devotional and taking some time to ponder on each chapter. Well written, easy to read and a great take on the Sermon on the Mount. Buy the book and start reading. I'm sure you won't be sorry you did.
Resilient-your invitation to a Jesus-shaped life is one of those devotional books that you actually can't put down and end up reading continuously within one sitting. Every ‘chapter' pulls you in and either has you raising your hand in agreement or finally making sense of what you've been feeling/thinking and reading in the past. Based on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount; Resilient takes you on a journey of 90 readings with stories, scripture, insights from the sermon and life pondering questions. To bounce back from emotional, physical & spiritual storms we need resilience and quoting the book; ‘the blessed life is a resilient life, at its core is a heart for God'. Personally battling inner turmoil with grief and faith struggles for the past few years this book has repaired my relationship with God, finally hearing his voice again and knowing he'll use my strengths, seek my talents, let my light shine and shape my future into that blessed resilient life. It's really opened my eyes and heart to all aspects of my life and made me listen to that voice (God's) that perhaps I'd stopped hearing as my own inner voices became too loud. I recommend this book wholeheartedly for anyone struggling, anyone starting their voyage with God, devotional readers or just anyone who wants to be spiritually nourished. It is beautifully written; Sheridan uses his own life experiences, humour and knowledge to take you on a flowing journey of self discovery. An emotional rollercoaster of a ride that will lead you to resilience and a stronger relationship with God.
