An Unexpected Revival Review

Book Review: 

This is an 8-week study of Ezekiel that teaches readers about God's goodness in times of disappointment and doubt. We see a unique picture of revival through Ezekiel's prophecies, and we see how that can be the case for us today as well. We see how the sins of that time are still prevalent in our lives, and how God's promises and lessons in Ezekiel still apply to us today.

Throughout the devotional, we learn how to listen and posture ourselves for revival, and to have the same resilience to share God's message with the world. We learn the things we do that stops revival, and the things we can do to invite it. There are activities, questions, and readings all throughout to help the reader understand and learn. God has already given us the tools we need for revival.

Since I read this for review, I did not to the activities and instead simply read this cover-to-cover, so I did not get much out of this book. However, I do think you might (and other reviews seem to agree) get more out of this slowly going over the lessons over 8 weeks. I felt the writing was a bit disorganized and sometimes didn't see the relevance in some of her stories. There was also some very basic information that was not correct.

I did not care for this study, and I gave it 2/5 stars.
