An Unexplainable Life – Book Review

An Unexplainable Life

An Unexplainable Life: A 10-Week Bible Study Of Acts 1-12 by Erica Wiggenhorn

Have you ever invested a good deal of time – perhaps several years of your life – in a relationship that came to an unexpected end, one that left you feeling confused, fearful, and uncertain about your future? That must have been how Jesus’ disciples felt after His death, before His resurrection.

They thought they knew what He was all about. They thought He was going to be their conquering king. They thought He was going to restore the kingdom to Israel – and then, their hopes were shattered.

So, what happened in the lives of these men that turned their lives upside down? What change occurred that made them no longer afraid to proclaim their relationship with Christ to the world? What transformed their lives so much that they were willing to give their lives for Him, for the sake of spreading the gospel?

The answer to those questions lies in the biblical book of Acts – and Bible teacher Erica Wiggenhorn has written an in-depth Bible study, An Unexplainable Life: Recovering The Wonder And Devotion To The Early Church, that takes you through Acts 1 through Acts 12 in 10 weeks!

The book of Acts is an exciting book to read on your own but, combined with An Unexplainable Life, you simply won’t want to put it down!

During your 50 days in this study, you’ll walk alongside the apostle Peter and see how the presence of the Holy Spirit can transform us from fearful, impetuous people to disciples who are courageous and mature in Christ. You’ll also witness the birth of the Church and many miraculous events in the lives of the early believers!

The Bible study is set up so that each day, for 5 days a week, you’ll work through a daily lesson that takes you through a portion of Scripture, provides you with rich theological and historical insights into what is happening, and invites you to dig into the text through probing questions and journaling exercises.

What I like most about this study is how personal Erica makes it for us. Just as the Holy Spirit transformed the Jesus’ original disciples into men who made living for Christ their greatest priority, she encourages us to do the same by challenging us with a series of questions:

  • What if Christ were to become my greatest reality?
  • What if His message and mission were my greatest desire?
  • Would my worry, anxiety, unrest, discontent, and angst be replaced by the abiding reality of the presence of the Prince of Peace ruling in my heart and mind?
  • Do I truly believe that losing my life for His sake results in the greatest discovery of all time?

An Unexplainable Life is an inspiring Bible study that you won’t want to miss. I highly recommend it to you and – when you have completed this study – I encourage you to complete your journey through Acts with Erica’s companion Bible Study, The Unexplainable Church.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
