I was recently contacted by author David Ramos with an offer to read his newest devotional Climbing with Abraham. After reading David’s brief bio on Amazon, I decided to give the book a try and I’m so glad that I did.
I appreciated the observations and insights that David shared from the life of Abraham. Clearly he presents a high view of God and also shows how God cares for and knows each one of us individually.
David has a very warm and engaging writing style that invites the reader into the story. As I was reading this devotional I found myself highlighting many sentences that jumped off the page at me. Here are a few items that I highlighted:
· God’s promises will not fail.
· God’s patience is more powerful than our stumbles, and His love is as strong as we are fragile.
· God knows your frustrations; keep on believing.
· God saw Hagar when no one else did and He cared for her when no one else would.
There were times when reading this book I felt like God was speaking to me. On a particularly hard day I was encouraged from the story of Hagar. David shared, “You are not stuck, you are not forgotten and you are not hopeless.” I needed that strengthening reminder about God on that specific day.
It seems like no matter how many times I’ve read or studied Scripture I can learn something new or fresh every time. That’s why I appreciate the insights that David shared from the life of Abraham. This is the first book I’ve read by him, but I hope it’s not the last one.
One thing I would have liked to have seen included is the actual Scripture verses instead of just the chapter and verse references.
I highly recommend Climbing with Abraham by author David Ramos. You will be encouraged, strengthened and challenged as you read through the life of Abraham, a friend of God.
I would like to thank David Ramos for the opportunity to read Climbing with Abraham in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
