By Warren W. Wiersbe
OVERVIEW: Pause For Power is a revised version of Wiersbe's original devotional and includes three additional books of the Bible as well as updated reflections and prayers. This year-long study includes thoughtful examination of the Old Testament books of Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Isaiah, as well as the New Testament books of Romans, l and 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Hebrews, James, l Peter, and 1 John. Wiersbe's trademark voice remains the same throughout the book, and he continues to encourage readers to make personal application of God's Word to every situation of their lives.
AUTHOR: Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe, former pastor of The Moody Church and general director of Back to the Bible, has traveled widely as a Bible teacher and conference speaker. Often referred to as the Pastor's Pastor, Wiersbe has offered great encouragement to those with whom he hs shared ministry. he has preached and taught in churches and conferences throughout the United States as well as in Canada, Central and South America, and Europe. His published work includes the popular BE series of commentaries on every book of the Bible which has sold more than four million copies. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Gold Medallion Lifetime Achievement Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
MY REVIEW: This devotional book will help you discover spiritual insights through a simple yet informative approach to God's Word. I like the fact that Dr. Wiersbe's unique style while not overly academic it is theologically sound. He explains the deep truths of Scripture in a way that everyone can understand. I have been reading this splendid devotional every day since January 1. I just finished reading his thoughts for day 11 and it is excellent. The question he left for his readers to ponder is: "When were some times you could have avoided a lot of trouble if you had obeyed God in the first place?" That's a good question for all of us to ponder. It is not too late to get started on this year long devotional and study guide of God's Word.
