 Book: The Shelter of God’s Promises
Author: Sheila Walsh
Genre: Christian life/religion
Pages: 224, paperback

Released: February 1, 2011

My rating: An excellent book of encouragement and comfort for those who need to know or be reminded about where God’s  promises fit in their lives.

I received this book from Book Sneeze in exchange for a review.

The Shelter of God’s Promises is both for personal use and for group study. I read it alone and really enjoyed it.

This is a book written by a woman with an open heart taught by God. Sheila Walsh speaks out of experience, and from a voice of love, teaching and inspiring the reader.

Her ten chapter topics are:
Promises, Promises/I Need Something to Hold On To;
Provision/I Don’t Have Enough;
Peace/I’m Afraid and Feel Alone;
Confidence/I Can’t See God’s Plan in This Pain;
Love/I Don’t Believe That Anyone Could Really Love Me;
Grace/I Have Failed;
Hope/I’m Broken;
Strength/I Feel Things Are Crashing Around Me;
More/I Know There’s Something Better;
Home/I Have a Future.

Each topic is skillfully and tenderly addressed as she shares in a one on one manner, sometimes in humour – sometimes from pain and vulnerability – what God has revealed to her.

For someone who is seeking some answers, this may be the book to read. For someone seeking comfort in a hard place, for someone needing further insight – at the back of the book is a study guide with questions to consider after each chapter. It’s divided into four brief sections: Discover; Believe; Live; Memorize (with a scripture verse to memorize that week.) Taken seriously, the questions will help to motivate a deeper walk with Christ.

Even if the reader chooses to not use this book as a study it will still be an inspirational read of comfort and encouragement.
