Every believer has a need for an understanding of systematic theology, but very few theology books present material in a personal, devotional format that appeals to th most popular level of believers. Dr. Thrasher manages to communicate the most academic biblical truth with the heart and personal connection of a pastor, achieving a depth of knowledge at an extremely approachable level. It's the astute wisdom of a professor packaged in the comfortable relatability of a friend.
Let me say that theology is not really something I get into a lot. Especially this way. I used to when I was in school and ministry training. But it has been awhile.
As of this book and author I have to say I did enjoy reading and doing some studying with this one. Being that it's format was more like a devotional it was different. And it made it more easily to get into it.
Author Bill Thrasher has a way of making you comfortable with studying and his book even encouraged me to dig in deeper to the Word of God.
So due to the above, if I could it would be higher, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of:
Five Clock Rating!!!
Disclosure: I did not received the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
