The Shelter of God’s Promises by Sheila Walsh

I’m not sure what I was looking for when I started reading Sheila Walsh’s new book about God’s promises, but whatever it was, the book exceeded my expectations. It was interesting and much more. Sheila Walsh pulls you into her world with the very first story. And then she keeps you invested by sharing about her childhood, her relationship with both of her parents as individuals, her marriage, her son, her career and various areas of her life as she encourages reliance on God’s promises.

This is a balanced, Word based, book. Sheila Walsh manages to build one’s faith without making snake-oil-salesmen claims. It’s not a cure-all encyclopedia. It is a challenging presentation of the faith-walk with Jesus Christ that sometimes leads us to places we’d rather not visit and keeps us longer than we’d like to stay. And yet, because we are with Jesus, we know it’s for our best, and His promises will carry us all the way home!

As you read this book, you can expect to be challenged to think more deeply about many aspects of your theology. There are plenty of stories from scripture. If you are a novice, you’ll get a great introduction to some classic teachings. If you think you’ve heard it all, you may be surprised by what you gain by taking a fresh look and spending some time there. I know I was.

I highly recommend In The Shelter of God’s Promises by Sheila Walsh. Her disarming candor and the encouragement of the message will leave you ready for more.
