Jesus and the Beanstalk: A Book Review

About The Book:


What if a fairy tale and ten Bible verses could free you to live an effective, fruitful life in Christ?
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith:
—Faith
—Goodness
—Knowledge
—Self-control
—Perseverance
—Godliness
—Affection for others
—Love
In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.

My Review:
Jack and the Beanstalk has always been a favorite fairy tale of mine, so it was very interesting to read Roeleveld's interpretation of this tale and contrast it to what the Bible says about overcoming the giants in our lives. I really quite enjoyed the book and loved studying more about 2 Peter 1. A well organized book and easy to read and understand. The book is set up in daily study with great questions ideal for both individual and group study. 

I highly recommend this book.
