BOOK REVIEW: Living With Confidence In A Chaotic World
As a follow up to his best seller What In The World Is Going On?, Dr. David Jeremiah offers us more hope and encouragement in his newest book.
Living With Confidence In A Chaotic World gives us ten practical strategies on how to live, trust in God's Word and stay calm while we wait for the return of Christ.
Each of the ten strategies (stay calm, compassionate, constructive, challenged, connected, centered, confident, consistent, committed, convinced) are coupled with scriptures to solidify Dr. Jeremiah's teaching.
What I found most interesting about this book was that along with scriptural teaching and exhortation, Dr. Jeremiah included information and news which points to just how close we are living to the return of Christ.
In the first chapter (Stay Calm), he describes military manipulation of the biosphere which can now be used for eco-type terrorism. He states "both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use." "When we read what's coming, we feel like we're either hurtling into the age of science fiction or stepping into the pages of the book of Revelation."
For those who have accepted Christ as their personal savior and are looking for the rapture of the church, these examples of upcoming warfare should encourage us that our redemption is closer than ever before.
For those who do not believe in Christ - this book could be a useful tool in pointing out Biblical prophecy that has come to pass and *is* coming to pass very quickly and hopefully open their eyes to their need of a savior.
