Book Review: Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World




This is an excellent book by Dr. David Jeremiah, I really think it's wisdom is prevalent for today but would be just as important at any time in history.  



Dr. Jeremiah gives us a list of C's to help us stay on plan.  We are to stay:
Calm
Compassionate
Constructive
Challenged
Connected
Centered
Confident
Consistent

As we deal with all the current unrest and fear of the unknown in our country and throughout the world we are reminded to stay calm and focus on the Word.
In the times of chaos we tend to try to fix everything ourselves and want to hurry and rush on to the next thing when in fact we need to delve into the Word and focus on Christ.
Not only are the problems of this world sometimes beyond fixable, but maybe it's not important to fix it at all.  We are to let go of thinking that the world is our comfort when the world would and will turn away from us any moment, Christ is Christ, now and forever.
Any question that we need answered in the God's Word.  What this book does is point us to the scriptures that will guide us through.
Dr. Jeremiah is an excellent author and this book truly is a book for 'these' times.

Thomas Nelson Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
