Jesus and the Beanstalk by Lori Stanley Roeleveld - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Use the hidden gifts in 2 Peter to topple the giant challenges in your life.

We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith:

· Faith
· Goodness
· Knowledge
· Self-control
· Perseverance
· Godliness
· Affection for others
· Love

In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.

My Thoughts:
I will freely admit that the title is what drew me to this book outright.  I will also admit that I was unprepared for the depth, the boldness, the Biblical teaching and the rich relationship that I have developed with this book!  I will confess that I am blogging about it before I have completed the book, but I plan on spending a lot of time with this particular volume, and I simply refuse to rush through it, because I don’t want to miss a single thing!

Readers, if you are looking for a book that will both teach you and inspire you to pursue God’s truth and His Word so that you grow in your relationship with Christ, look no further!  This book will send you in search of God’s voice and truth and will stretch you in meaningful and profound ways!

Each chapter builds on the previous one.  The chapters aren’t particularly long, but they all end with a series of questions that send you deeper into God’s Word to mine the teaching in a way that becomes personal and transformational! 

In other word…DON’T MISS THIS BOOK!!  I am prayerfully asking God if this will serve as the foundation of my Spring Small group!  This is RICH!!  I’m very excited to recommend this to EVERYONE!!
