Lately I’ve discovered that I have come across some really great Christian books and I’ve been wanting to find a way to share them with others. What better way to share them that to start an online book club through my blog! I’m really excited about this project and I hope that I can get others ( like yourself on board with me.)
So for the first book club session, the book that we’ll be reading is:
Healing is a Choice by Stephen Arterburn
Synopsis ( From Amazon)
The power to heal—physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually—is in God’s hands. But the choice to be healed is yours. Everyone, at some level, needs healing. You may have prayed for healing many times, for many years. Perhaps you have lived with your brokenness so long that you have become accustomed to it. Maybe you wonder just when God is going to take all the hurt away.
He can. But you also must choose to let the hurt go and let the healing begin.
In Healing Is a Choice, author Stephen Arterburn offers ten choices crucial to receiving healing. Embracing these choices means rejecting the lies we often tell ourselves. These are not hoops God requires you to jump through to earn your miracle; they form, instead, the journey He desires for you. He can—and will—walk with you. But you must put one foot in front of the other and choose to let the hurt go and let the healing begin.
“His Word affirms that God wants us to experience His healing, but many times we make choices that stand in the way. Healing Is a Choice is a helpful resource that lays out the path of healing God’s way.”
Here’s a helpful list of where you can find the book to join in on the discussion of healing:
I’m sure there are other sites to find good deals on books, but the ones I’ve listed are more popular. Also these websites offer e-books for Kindle and iPad users. If anyone else has suggestions of where else to find the book and get a good deal, feel free to comment and share with others.
Also don’t forget you can always check the book out at your local public library and used books are always an option.
The official discussion will start next Friday, July 25th. Each week we’ll go through the book chapter by chapter.
Every Friday, I will post a few of my thoughts and then a few questions to get feedback from other readers.During this time feel free to share your own thoughts on the book, or even revelations God has given you while reading etc. I really want this to be an open forum, where we’re able to be open with one another and really venture into the journey of true healing.
On July 25th our discussion will begin with The Introduction
I know most people skip over the introduction, but this introduction is what really drew me to the book. I hope after you read it for yourself, you’ll understand why I don’t want to simply skip over it.
Also I wanted to note, it’s okay to read through the book at your own pace and chime in whenever you wish to share. I understand that people have their own schedules of life. But I also know some people like going through it chapter by chapter and sharing that way. Either option is available, whatever works best for you.
Please join me in this journey of reading Healing is a Choice. I would really enjoy hearing feedback from others. Because I read a little bit ahead in the book, I know good things will come from sharing with others.
