Can God Be Trusted? review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED!

This giveaway is now CLOSED!! Congrats to Denise Reker, Sweeter the Berry, Erica G, kngmckellar, and dreamcleavers for winning. Winners chosen via random.org.


Full Description

Father Williams explores the most common obstacles that prevent people from trusting God, including personal betrayals, unfulfilled expectations, and seemingly unanswered prayers. He then explains what is reasonable to expect from God and offers practical tips for ways to grow in trust.

Williams is becoming a revered voice in the Christian community for his insightful writings on issues that really matter to Christians. In this new book, Father Williams will help readers understand, not only how to trust God in spite of doubts and confusion, but to truly know God can be trusted.

About Author

Thomas D. Williams, LC, ThD, is Vatican Analyst for CBS News and a professor of theology and ethics at the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome. He has also worked extensively for NBC News and Britain's Sky News, covering church and ethical issues, including the final illness and death of Pope John Paul II, the 2005 papal conclave, and the election of Pope Benedict XVI. Father Williams also regularly appeared in the MSNBC series The Ethical Edge and is author of several books and dozens of articles, both scholarly and popular.

MY REVIEW

Can God Be Trusted has a very good message. I found the book easy to read with strong biblical content. I enjoyed the quotes from every-day people found throughout each chapter. I think this book would make an excellent group study as well.

You can take a look inside the book HERE.

Thanks to Hachette Book Group for sending me the review copy of this book as well as sponsoring the giveaway.

I'd love to win and read this book. It's just the type of book that really appeals to me. I'm in the middle of "Decoding The Spiritual Messages of Everyday Life" by Dr. Paul DeBell. He offers ways to better understand the spiritual dimension in ourselves so we can find its effect in our everyday lives and learn to use it to improve our life.
