The Shelter of God's Promises

I recently was given the opportunity to review the book:  The Shelter of God's Promises .  Here is my reveiw:

In “The Shelter of God's Promises”, Sheila Walsh takes the reader through some of the main ideas of promises in the Bible. She explores the ideas of peace, confidence, love, grace, and more. I'm usually a huge fan of Sheila Walsh's books, but this one didn't seem to be quite as good as some of her others, although it's still a very good read. It felt more of an instructional book than some of her other books which seem more like a chat with an old friend. That said, the story about her bolero and the missionary clothing drive made me laugh out loud and her personal tales woven into her books are what I enjoy so much about her writing. Having grown up in church, I can't say that there was anything new to me in this book, but sometimes it's good to be reminded of the basics that God has promised us. There is also a Bible study in the back of the book which would be helpful for either personal or group study. I did enjoy this book, and it would also make a great gift to someone who is struggling with – well basically – anything as it is a book of general comfort and encouragement.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.
