The Walk by Shaun Alexander

    What are the stages a person goes through in their relationship with God?
    Shaun Alexander in this book suggests five stages.  They are  Unbeliever, Believer, Example, Teacher and Imparter.He states that all go through them if they are striving to be committed to being a hero in God's sight. It has 245 pages.  Within these pages he has 214 of the main story, 12 for discussion, and the rest for an apendex of questions and notes.
    There will be disagreement on the last stage, that of the Imparter. I find it hard to belive that God still needs men to do sign and wonders. I hold that the signs and wonders of the book of Acts was for that time period before the whole scripture was canonized. So that would be one area of critic of this book.
    This is an interesting thesis and written in an easy to comprehend style. If used in a discussion group it will generate much conversation.
     I was given this book for free from WaterBrook Multinomah Publishing Group for this review. All opinions are my own and do not reflect the publisher.

  2. Thank you, Diane. Yes. It was an interesting book. I enjoyed reading the five stages. I am not so sure I agree with the author, but if I only read everything I agreed with, I would not be able to look myself in the eye and say I was well read.
    Yes, Happy New Year 2012
