I obtained this book for review from netGalley.
Mr MacDonald has a gift for expressing the love and mercy of God to the reader in simple, informal language. In fact, I sometimes felt his language a little too informal although it certainly makes this an accessible book for anyone – going through a difficult time or not.
The reader is introduced to five truths about God and five promises He has made. Mr MacDonald works through each one, drawing on his Biblical scholarship – this is an author who knows his stuff. Each section also gives some homework and suggests an appropriate Bible verse for memorisation.
As I’d not read any of Mr MacDonald’s previous work, I’d have liked to know a bit more about him. I understand he’s written more about his personal circumstances in an earlier book but maybe an ‘About the Author’ introduction would have been helpful. That said, I’ll be adding his other books to my wishlist just as soon as I’m finished writing this revew!
