Unbelievable Stories of God's Love
If you have never believed in a God this book might convince you
that He is very real and present in your life. Small
coincidences that you may not have taken seriously may actually
have been God talking to you so as to direct your life.
I was amazed by the number of stories collected for this book.
These are incredible stories about how God speaks to us in our
modern age. In fact it is a little overwhelming to read all the
stories in one day. I loved the story of The Red Hat Society and
how Billy Graham became a preacher. I also loved the story of a
woman looking for red shoes who finds a pair by a designer with
her name. Small things like a phone ringing just in time to save
a man from committing suicide shows that God is also protecting
and caring for us. Most of the stories brought me close to tears
they were so incredible.
In my own life I've had numerous encounters with "godwinks"
as they are called. While traveling overseas by myself when my
parents sent me off to college I ended up sitting by a man who
knew my father. It was as if God was protecting me or showing me
I was on the right path.
At other times during my childhood things would happen when we
needed money or when we needed Christmas presents. God provided
us with more than necessities, He delighted us with spontaneous
gifts. Now as an adult God still speaks to me but in a very
interesting way. I hear and see words at the same time and they
make up sentences. Normally I'm reading a book while listening
to music or the radio. I also tried asking God questions and he
answered them. You may think that is crazy but it really happens
to me. One time when I was very depressed God brightened my day
and changed my life by sending the message: "But Hope I Am
So while reading this book you may recall many things from your
life that were more than coincidences. Recently while out with
my parents for lunch we saw women with red hats and purple
dresses. I knew it was related to a poem I had once read but
this book explained that it was a chapter of The Red Hat
Society. Often in my life things I see in real life will end up
in books I read within the week and in movies I watch within a
few days. This book just confirmed my belief in God even more! I
had a question and God answered it again. :)

The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul
Essential Reading, November 27, 2015
must know what it means to fight with God all night if we are also
to know what it means to experience the sweetness of the soul's
surrender." ~ R. C. Sproul
Most people who believe in God seem well aware that God is a God of
love. But what many don't seem to realize is that God is also holy.
R. C. Sproul goes to great lengths to explain this in detail. If you
have ever been confused as to why a loving God would create hell
then you have probably rarely considered that God is holy beyond our
limited imaginations. This book seeks to make you feel at peace with
the holiness of God.
This is probably one of R.C. Sproul's most creative books. The start
at least is very compelling. I also feel R.C. Sproul is one of the
deepest thinkers of our time. He argues his points so well it is
almost an art. By reading this book you will learn a lot about
justice and mercy. By the end of this book you will be convinced
that we all deserve hell and it is only by God's grace that we can
avoid going there.
So this is a book I can recommend to anyone who only thinks God is
love and has yet to consider the seriousness of God being holy too.
