Still Book Review

By Benjamin H. Liles

          The first book this month I get the utmost pleasure of reviewing is Jenny Donnelly's book, Still. She has a wonderful way of telling stories and giving advice that centers around the point she's making. The graphic alone, for the book, looks chaotic and busy (just like how our lives work day in and day out). The whole point of that here is of what Jesus told the disciples as well as us today: "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid" (John 14:27, Berean Study).

          This brings me to the tag of the book, which says, "7 ways to find calm in the chaos." I personally like the tag, and she seems to know how to find a way to be and to get calm when storms come zipping to us. The big thing I will say is that God speaks to each of us even without the help of Jenny Donnelly. I'm not trying to suggest her book isn't needed, but that He gives us far more than our own words can give. I'd even say my own words aren't sufficient.

          What I can and will say about Jenny's book is that she gives great insight, as well as advice on finding ways to handle the stressful day to day, being balanced, finding the peace God desires to give us in His Son, Jesus Christ. What's in a name that demon's flee and mountains move and storms cease? The name above all names Jesus Christ of Nazareth, born in Nazareth, to die on a cross so that you and I have not only right-standing with Him, but to have peace as only He can give.

          I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review.
