As Silver Refined by Kay Arthur

          In this book we have presented God as a refiner and us as a piece of silver that is being worked upon. Only unlike the silver we can  choose how the fire is refining us.. The silver is refined by being put in the fire. We on the same hand are refined by the fire of disappointment.
Part of the refining fire Arthur seems to say is a form of  warfare with Satan. She spends fifteen chapters in her style of presenting truth informing us that the sovereignty of God acts as an umbrella over the refining activity.
We have a choice when it comes to responding. We can act in disappointment and allow Satan to draw us away from God or we can allow the disappointment to be interpreted as God’s appointment to refine us into His image..
Arthur is a teacher who strives to plant her readers on the .foundation of the Bible. What does it say? What does it mean in my life? 
I find her style of presenting biblical themes and topics easy to digest. She informs and prods.
The information is presented in a cohesive appealing manner. It is presented in a tone that soothes and draws you to God. She even makes an appeal to the reader who isn’t in relationship with God to start up a journey with Him..
I would recommend this for small groups to study.
            I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multinomah Publishing for this review. I was not required to give a positive review. The opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and not of the publisher.
