Fire of Delayed Answers Nov 14, 2005
Wonder why you are in such a tough place in your life? Well, here's your answer! God wants something from you and He will use your circumstances to get it. This book will change your life with its hopeful and reassuring revelations of the intent of God's heart toward His children. I could have stopped reading after the 1st chapter - it was so full of wonderful information - I took a week to let it sink in!! I was sad when I finished the book, but VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE!! I recommend this book to every single Christian in search of God's purpose for their life.
Growing Maturity in the Christian Life Jun 5, 2003
Fantastic book! If you are looking for a resource to help take you deeper into understanding the word of God and the workings of God, then this it. So many times throughout the book, Mr. Sorge captures exactly what I am thinking and saying as I go through my own "fire" in life right now. His writing on God's purposes for broken faith and broken strength make sense and bring me peace that I am right where God wants me to be. It helps me to know that God is pouring out his mercy and love on me at this time in my life to prepare me for His works and blessings. In short, this book is helping me get where I wanted to go, which was to grow in intimacy with God.
The only caution I have is that this is a very meaty read. It is deep spiritual work and highly thought-provoking. I'm not sure I would recommend it to new Christians because I think you need to have a certain level of maturity in your Christian life to really comprehend and incorporate the teachings from this book into your spiritual walk.
Overall, just a fantastic book!
The Fire of Delayed Answers Feb 10, 2002
This is another exceedingly hopeful book on living through the periods of testing mature Christians are called to endure. Sorge is the only author I've read so far who emphasizes the "delay" or "waiting" piece of this and why waiting is like going through the fire. Throughout the book he offers pithy memorable hopeful "truths" to meditate upon when the world looks at your situation and calls you deluded. This is a "how to" book, as well as an encouragement to those going through the fire. Don't give up.
For Serious Desciples of Jesus Christ Oct 20, 2001
If you find yourself in the heat of the refiner's fire and have exhausted all your traditional sources of comfort and answers, this book will give you a ton to think about as you develop a new sense of perspective about your journey toward Christ-likness. If you are in the heat of it right now and crave Biblical insights and practical suggestions get this book NOW. Mr. Sorge writes in an accessible style from his own personal experiences and helps serious believers navigate the rough waters. In the end, you still have to work through your issues, but "Fire" will give you the encouragement you need to hang in there. Just outstanding!
