Book Review of God is Able by Priscilla Shirer
God is Able
by Priscilla Shirer
B & H Publishing Group
Reviewed by Clint Walker
Priscilla Shirer is a well-known speaker to women, and women's groups. She is also the daughter of well-known evangelical Tony Evans. Shirer has written several books, of which this is her newest release. Like most of her books, this book speaks to the power and potential that believers have in Christ.
God is Able is challenges believers, and especially women, to believe that God is bigger than their problems and difficulties, and challenges and inspires the women she addresses to place their difficulties in God's hands. Each chapter starts with a "T" (Shirer must like alliteration), and each chapter progresses in helping readers trust God with the desires of their heart, while at the same time letting go of wanting to control things that they cannot.
This is an excellent book for Christians needing a little encouragement and inspiration. And if this book strikes your fancy, there is a lot more out there in terms of video curriculum and books to read, as well as opportunities to hear Priscilla speak.
