Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver
A GREAT Bible study! I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review and absolutely loved it. I'd read one of Joanna Weaver's earlier books, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World as a part of a Bible study and enjoyed it, so I was excited to receive this book by the same author.
The author uses the Biblical story of Lazarus to teach lessons of God's love for each of us, living in God's love, God's love at work in and through us, etc. This book really spoke to me on many different aspects, one of which is that God's love for me depends on nothing I can do or be. He just loves me. Not if I do something or if I am something, He just loves me.
There is a study guide in the appendix which is good for using this book as a part of either a personal Bible study or a group study. The other appendices are full of helpful information as well, such as "Who I am in Christ" and "Identifying Strongholds". This back section of the book is just as important to read as the body of the book.
I would certainly recommend this book for Christian readers. Even if you think you understand God's love, give it a try. I can almost assure you that you'll find it informative and enriching in your Christian life.
