The Shelter of God's Promises by Sheila Walsh

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Sheila Walsh and her publisher for sending me a copy of "The Shelter of God's Promises" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a Sheila Walsh book. And after simply thumbing through the table of contents of her latest project, I totally wonder why. “The Shelter of God’s Promises” is a book that should be read by every Christian. Not only is the average believer unaware of what God’s promises are, but the promises we think we know, we have a difficult time explaining to others. In this non-fiction work, Sheila Walsh opens up ten of God’s promises directly from His Word and applies them to daily life.

The in-depth Bible study found in the back of the book asks pointed questions that help the student to discover the truths of these promises for themselves in God’s Word. Sheila Walsh’s writing style is both candid and compassionate, having experienced what she is writing on the page and desiring to share with transparency how believers can overcome whatever the troubling circumstance happens to be and apply the truth of the Bible to their own lives. The text is easy to read and understand. This is a wonderful book to use for personal growth, a book group or a Bible study. I certainly won’t allow so much time to pass before I read another Sheila Walsh book.
