Lazarus Awakening Book Review

You believe that God loves the world…
but sometimes you wonder if He truly loves you.

For many of us, moving the truth of God’s love from our heads to our hearts is a lifelong process. As we consider our inadequacies or grieve our shattered dreams, we find it difficult to believe that God cares for us personally.

In this life-giving book, Joanna Weaver shows you how to embrace the truth that Jesus loves you apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unbound from the grave clothes of fear, regret, and self-condemnation.

Love is calling your name.

Combining unforgettable real-life illustrations with unexpected biblical insights, Joanna Weaver invites you to experience a spiritual resurrection that will forever change your understanding of what it means to be the one Jesus loves.
Includes 10-week Bible study (adaptable for 8 weeks) for both individual reflection and group discussion.

My Thoughts

I actually read this book a few years ago, and ended up giving my copy away because I liked it so much. This book really draws the reader into the world of Jesus and how He loved people in the Bible. Weaver helps you realize how much Jesus loves you and throws in her own life stories. This book also includes a study in the back of the book. The video study also just came out that goes along with this book and another study book. You will look at Lazarus' life in a new way and how people really haven't changed that much since then. 
Highly recommend.

"I received this book from Blogging For Books for free in exchange for an honest review."
