Reviews - What do customers think about Perfect Trust?
perfect trust Jan 30, 2007
this is totally a book a christian can read and get alot out of it, but especially for someone searching or a non-christian could get something from it and find God through it. I intend to have several copies on hand to give to someone who needs a little comfort in knowing God is there for them and they are not alone.
Profoundly helpful Jul 14, 2006
This is an excellent little book of thoughts on the nature of trust. It's profound yet attention-grabbing; written in bite-sized chapters - which, taken a piece at a time, make encouraging and positive 'thought food' for a day. Well written and a good buy for the discerning reader.
Inspiring Reading Jan 20, 2004
"In order to trust God we must view our adverse circumstances through eyes of faith, not our senses," we're told in the first few pages of this wonderful book. Chuck Swindoll goes on to tell us how to do that. He describes people who reflect a quiet, peaceful calm as being those individuals who have cultivated a perfect trust in God. Such a mindset liberates one to be the distinctive person God intended.
Swindoll writes from a profoundly deep perspective. Only an author who has been tested himself could write the following: "God has trusted each of us with our own set of unfair circumstances and unexplained experiences to deal with. Can we still trust in Him even if He never tell us why?" He goes on to answer the question he posed by saying, "..it's good simply because God Himself has allowed it. Acceptance is resting in God's goodness."
Job of the Old Testament is used to illustrate complete acceptance of God's will. Job trusted God totally, although he did not understand what was occurring in his life.
Read the section on worry. He offers five problems associated with it that enable you to see its deceptive powers. He also helps you to overcome it. I strongly recommend this book. It will deepen your relationship with God if you read it with the proper mindset.
Always Trust in the Lord!!! Jun 20, 2003
To date, I have purchased a quantity of 35 of this wonderful, inspirational book! It has helped me in untold ways, and all those I have gifted this book to, have raved of its healing powers and beauty.
The message is simple in its reminder to always have perfect trust in God. Thank you Pastor Swindoll, for this beautiful gift you have written for us!
Not written by D, but another in household Dec 31, 2002
This book is inspiring in the way that it encourages people to trust God. Perhaps I should've given it two stars but what dissappointed me within reading the first two pages were the statements of"....we deserve judgement" and "he was a 'godly' fugitive". Perhaps being a little over-analytical or precise I would like to comment that man, himself is not godly. Thus, using the word "godly" to discribe someone who wishes to follow "God's ways" should not be described as "godly" due to its misleading implications. Second of all, the book should be precise on "we deserve judgement". Yes it is true that Jesus Christ is Lord of All and that this book has much good coming from it's pages, but one must wonder if the good that is meant to encourage can be ruined with inaccurate text that does not coalign with scripture. God is the righteous judge and although we do not deserve His mercy, He is a God most of all of Love & Truth. Please understand that I am not bashing this book. There are a lot of encouraging passages, but the "spider scenario" and other statements are misleading and do not rely all on scripture. One should still satisfy ones curiosity and may do so in "borrowing" this book. But in order for one to be a "careful" and "passionate" christian one should not be afraid to question what one is reading.
