Jesus and the Beanstalk
What if a fairy tale and ten Bible verses could free you to live an effective, fruitful life in Christ?
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith:

In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.
My thoughts: We all have giants in our lives. You know, those things that we want to overcome but have a hard time doing so, or feel just too intimidated to know where to start. This book is an excellent source of encouragement! I love the element of fairy tale tied in with scripture and personal stories. It works excellent to read through or to use as a devotional. I enjoyed this book immensely!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
