The Grave Robber: A Book Review

About The Book:

Our impossible situations are God's greatest opportunity to reveal His glory

Sometimes it's hard to believe that God still does miracles. We don't expect Him to move in miraculous ways in our day-in and day-out lives. Maybe we'd like to see miracles, but it's hard to see past our problems.

All that is about to change, like water into wine.


 "Miracles are happening all around us all the time, but you won't see them if you don't know how to look for them."
Mark Batterson, bestselling author of The Circle Maker, reveals the incredible power of the seven miraculous signs of Jesus found in the Gospel of John, showing how they are not simply something Jesus did in the past but also something He wants to do now, in the present. Mark shares true stories of people today who are experiencing miracles in their lives. And he brings to light the countless miracles, big and small, we take for granted every day--miracles that point us toward the One who healed the sick, calmed the storm, and yes, even raised the dead.

Nothing has changed since Jesus called Lazarus out of his tomb four days after his funeral. No matter how big the problem is, God is bigger still. If you long to see God work in miraculous ways today, you will love this faith-building, life-giving message.

My Review:

Mark Batterson has done it again with his most recent release, The Grave Robber. It is an amazing look at the miracles of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the Gospel of John. It is a lovely reminder that the miracles of Jesus are not just recorded in the Bible but are happening even today. We might not always realize it but they are. The power of Jesus happens as soon as we place our faith in Him. When we truly trust and believe, anything is possible. It may not happen they way we want it or when we do, but Jesus will allow miracles to happen in His time.  Batterson writes with a unique style, with honesty and rawness that is very refreshing and natural, and made me feel as though I was sitting in on a conversation with him in a conference or workshop. It was wonderful to be able to relate to much of what he wrote. A book that I will definitely pull out again down the road and dig deeper through. For those interested there is also a DVD study for the book, perfect for small groups or adult sunday school programs.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
