40 Verses to Ignite Your Faith Book Review

40 verses to Ignite Your Faith by Laurie Polich Short covers forty verses we may not be as familiar with as those we memorized as a child. For each verse, Laurie gives background insight to root the reader in the verse’s significance. Then she relates that situation to our lives today.

This is a thought-provoking look at God’s Word in a fresh, easily accessible way. One that makes application of God’s Word to our life. After discussing the verse, there are three verse-related questions to reflect on.

I was excited to see Laurie include Job 42:3. While it may be among verses some consider obscure or lesser known, it is not obscure to me. She states in this chapter, “When we see our sufferings in a broader context, it helps us understand the pain we go through differently. When Job says, “I spoke of things … too wonderful for me to know,” he is expressing newfound hope from what God has revealed.”

This is one small glimpse into the treasures held within 40 Verses; a book not to be read once and put on a shelf, but a book to be read over and over again.

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

I wish you well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
