Not Just a Hearer But a Doer: Volume 2 by Yolanda Shanks

This book provides thirty-one days of hands-on training in living a better life the Christian way.  The book is geared toward those who desire to change their mind-set and actually live the lessons that the Bible teaches.

Each lesson is broken down into sections:

*The Lead-in

*Bible verses

*Background (historical period)

*Interpretation/Application

*Personalize Scripture Text

This book was easy to use.  It gave the reader great content to think about.  It definitely held to its topic of altering our thoughts of Biblical principles to include them in our day-to-day lives.  It’s wonderful to read our Bibles, but we need to apply what we’ve learned.

A lot of work went into writing this Bible study.  The author seemed to care a lot about her readers.  There were lessons on lessening your load and overcoming a burnt-out disposition, among others.  I felt these subjects worth delving into.

On the negative side, I sometimes felt the author was condescending.  She put in definitions of simple words that most readers can understand.

I also wish she had used the NIV of the Bible instead of the King James Version.  The NIV was created for easy reading of the Scriptures.  The meaning of the verse isn’t lost in the unfamiliar words.  I actually looked up every verse in my own Bible instead of struggling through the verses written in the book.

Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to anyone who desires to walk the walk of Christian faith.  The book highlights the areas we need to focus on.

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of the book through BookCrash.

 

I've been a Christian since 1991. I enjoy Beth Moore Bible studies and books about using your gift for God. I've been writing since high school. It is what I came to this earth to do! I also love reading books. I'm never without one! It is my wish to inspire others through my writing.
