As Silver Refined | Book Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review Kay Arthur's "As Silver Refined".  Two words -- MUST READ!  I have never read any of Kay's books that were not encouraging, challenging, and spiritually thought-provoking, and this was no different. 

In today's world, I feel that with the subject of life and the disappointments that are all too common, so many are searching for answers...wanting to know why things turned out as they did.  How could this happen to me?  Why would God allow that to happen like it did?  With a world of hurt and questions because of the hurt, what a wonderful challenge to consider that those disappointments are really God's appointments that He uses to make you more like Christ, and to bring others to Christ.  What a challenge for our human nature perspective!

I love Kay Arthur's style of writing.  It is down to earth, as if she's talking one on one with you.  Very easy to read, but works even better if you take your time as you go through it and use the included 13 week Bible study! 

I rate this book 5 stars!  I have thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to all Christians and non-Christians alike!  I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The above opinions are my own. I was not required to write a favorable review.
