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.

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