Book Review: 90 Days with THE GOD WHO speaks by B&H Publishing Group

90 Days with THE GOD WHO speaks, is developed from “The Gospel Project: Adult Leader Guide”, copyright 2012, by Lifeway Christian Resources. I wish they would have given credit to their team of authors because I like looking up other works of authors and following different ministries. With that being said, I love books about how God speaks, and is still speaking to today’s generations. The table of contents captivated me. Each title reveals a different thing to reflect about how God speaks. The book is laid out as a devotional is meant to be used in any way that would best add to your current study. I like how each devotional starts with scripture and has scripture reference throughout the story or explanation. Each devotional ends with questions to ponder, or things to do, like reading specific scripture, or praying about specific things related to the day’s devotional. I think that this is a good beginners guide to hearing God’s voice. I am disappointed that this book only talks about God speaking in Scripture. I’m also disappointed that it leaves the reader more hesitant about prophecy, because the only mention of prophecy, is of a prophecy that was wrong. The book says nothing about learning to hear God’s voice to the specific individual through the Holy Spirit.

          There is no mention about God speaking through dreams today, or to the people through scripture. I have researched dreams in Scripture, and learned that there are about 90 times that the word “dream”, can be found in scripture. My favorite is found in Job, (Job 33:14-18 NASB Indeed God speaks once, twice, yet no one notices it. In a dream, a vision of the night, sound sleep falls on men, they slumber in their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, seals their instruction, That He may turn man aside from his conduct, keep man from pride; He keeps back his soul from the pit, his life from passing over into Sheol.) There is no mention about how our own voice is powerful. God created everything with His voice, and He created us in His image, so our voices are also powerful, and have the power of life and death. (Proverbs 18:21 NASB Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.) We need to be careful with our words, because we will be held accountable for what we say. (Matthew 12:36 NASB But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.)

          I would recommend this book to specific denominations that tend to believe that God does not speak through prophets or dreams today. I feel that the book could be much more encouraging and impactful in the reader’s walk, if it covered how God not only spoke through scripture, and to the people of those times, but how God still speaks today.

I am a seeker of Jesus, wife of Tim, homeschooling mom of six. I created Doodles in the Margin as a place for everything that I do while being a seeker or Jesus, a wife and a mom. I love to read and learn. I found the joy of reviewing books. This blog is where I have my book and curriculum reviews as well as things the the LORD has revealed to me to share. I love to learn about God and help others grow in their relationship with God by talking about the books that I have read. I spend a lot of time sharing with other parents what works for my kids in our homeschooling journey. I started Doodles in the Margin to share the home school resources that I have created. Right now I have my resources available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I started Overwhelmed Dreamer to share the notes that I have taken along my journey with Biblical dream interpretation. Songs by Jano is my podcast that I set up to share the music that I wrote. I also like to edit books, sew, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design and designing websites. More information can be found on the links in the menu.
