Pathways: From Providence To Purpose – Book Review
Have you ever gone through a season that was so painful that you wondered whether God was somehow missing from the picture? Have you ever found yourself in circumstances where you found it difficult to see how God could have a plan and purpose for them?
In Pathways: From Providence To Purpose, Tony Evans – one of the most respected Bible teachers of our time – takes us on a journey through the biblical book of Esther to teach us about God’s sovereignty and His providence.
It’s a book that every Christian should read – particularly those of us who have ever felt that God has been missing in action during a crucial moment in our lives.
The book of Esther is unique among the 66 books of the Bible because it is the only book in the Bible where God is never once mentioned by name! Tony says that this teaches us an important lesson about God’s providence:
God will often stay in the background while controlling the activity of the foreground.
In Pathways, Tony shows us how to find God in the midst of the story of our lives – even when God seems to be silent, missing, and absent. Through the powerful lessons we learn in the book of Esther, Pathways provides us with powerful teaching that we need to hear!
I was hooked on Pathways from the moment I started reading it (I even found his football stories compelling and I am not a football fan!) There is much wisdom in the book – if you like to highlight and journal as you read, be sure to keep your pens and notebooks handy!
Pathways is a great book to read and discuss with your spouse, your best friend, your small group, or your book club. I definitely recommend this book from one of my favorite Christian authors to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
