Storm is yet another great read by Pastor and author Jim Cymbala. I found it insightful and full of wisdom for living in the world today. It will make my list of favorite non-fiction reads for 2014. I think the most surprising thing about the book is that Pastor Cymbala identifies several areas in which Christians have gotten off task when it comes to reaching the lost. If there was ever a time to keep the main thing the main thing, it is now!
My favorite parts of the book were the stories of life change. I love to hear stories of people experiencing the gospel and as a result their lives are never the same. The most inspiring to me was the story of Avril. Most of us would look at her life and count her as a casualty of her circumstances. However, Avril overcame and not by her own hand but by the grace of God and a Pastor who took the time to show her Christ’s love. His simple act of blessing her with furniture changed the course of not only her life, but the lives of so many people.
If you have time to read one more book this year, pick this one. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher n exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated.
