A lot of books get published each year. A few get read while the others are ignored.
In this blog I would like to present some book reviews of books I have read and feel are important enough for you to read also.
Feel free to suggest books which you feel I should review for you. I will consider them.
For people who enjoy
the easy writing style of Jakes this will prove to be a good addition to their
It has the subtitle ‘The
Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive.’ The contention being that we all have
instincts for what works well for us and what doesn’t.
Our instincts, he
writes, are the treasure map for our soul’s satisfaction. Following our
instincts can make the crucial distinction between what we are good at—our
vocation or skill set—and what we are good for—the fulfillment of our
He also notes-- instincts are the product of
what we have and what we want to have.
He adds-- they are the
inner compass guiding us from where we are to where we want to go.
This is not a how-to
book. It is not a one plan fits all. It is more on the line of an inspirational
thought providing look at potential and possibilities.
Some people are born
knowing what they want to do and tend to persue it. Others are not so attune to

book. Jakes doesn’t try to force you to any viewpoint. He just paints a picture
and allows the reader to join in on the journey.
We all need exposure
to activate the instincts that belong to us. The fact is that you can’t very
well be what you do not see. It is the exposure to the possibilities that

I offer this book to
all who know there is something more out there and they are willing to explore

questions and to seek answers. She is a minister’s child and knows her Bible.
So she isn’t looking at it from the doubter’s viewpoint. She knows whom she believes.
But when she sees around
her God healing and blessing some others she wonders why them and not her?
She postulates there
are six big questions of faith. In this short book she looks at and discusses
each dividing the book into six parts and 30 chapters.
I found this book written
in a style that is easy to digest. These are questions that are asked by all
thinking people. They have been asked for a long time and you would think God
gets tired of hearing them. But He doesn’t.
We are not the first.
Job asked. He got an answer. God is sovereign. We cannot know exactly why, but
we can know ultimately it is according to God’s plan.
