This book is one that at times I was completely lost while reading it. I couldn’t quite understand what the author was saying. It felt almost like a legal document that has all these unfamiliar words that confuse you. I am familiar with the subject in the book, yet I walked away not quite satisfied with the outcome. I wanted a book where the author would walk readers through different tasks that would lead them to what their gift was. Not everyone is a prophet and only God is the one that gives that gift . You can’t make yourself a prophet but if God has appointed you as one, he will provide the tools you need.
I appreciate all the hard work the author used to write this book. For me, it feel short of helping understand what points she was trying to make. This book would be useful for theologians and those who have studied this subject in-depth. I do remember at a church I attended, if someone felt they had a Word from God they needed to go to an elder or the Pastor first. I always appreciated that step so someone wouldn’t just come up and start saying things that were not of God. Pastors have great discernment and want to watch over their congregation. I’m sure you have heard about false prophets. We are to be careful of those who want to cause division in the Body of Christ.
I was confused what the purpose of the word clouds were. Although there were many subjects in the cloud, it felt a little off balance. I needed more clarity as to what the author was wanting readers to gain from the word clouds. Even though I was lost through most of the book, I can’t take away the valuable tools Bible scholars and Pastors could use from the book. Overall I don’t think this book is for the everyday Christian, but rather for those who study theology to gain wisdom in their journey to teach others.
I received a copy of the book from a Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
