Publishers Description If you are looking for a book to read that uses big words that need a dictionary or thesaurus to understand their meaning then God Moments In Time is not for you. However, if you are looking for a book to read that is simple, yet profound then this is a book for you. There are few books that can be read in basically one sitting. You will be captivated by the nuggets that Thomas Brewer brings to the surface in the Scriptures, but even more captivated in how he moved from thousands of years ago to present day life situations that we as Christians can apply to our lives. For example, in chapter five, one nugget was drawn from Genesis 24:10-20. This is the story of Rebekah drawing water for the camels of Abraham's servant sent to find a wife for Isaac. It was pointed out that there were most likely 10 camels and that a camel drinks up to twenty-five gallons of water each day. Rebekah physically drew up with a jug, approximately 250 gallons of water, for the servant's camels. The point in the story was to show the extraordinary kindness of Rebekah to a stranger. The chapter ends with a challenge that we can and should show kindness to strangers we meet every day. Throughout the entire book you will learn interesting and insightful facts about biblical culture and customs, but will be shown the practical application to your life through these insights. At the end of the book there are five questions for each chapter. Some of the questions will take you back to the Bible and others will challenge and motivate you in your personal walk with the Lord. God Moments in Time coupled with the questions at the end of the book would make an excellent six week small group study. Too often today Christian speakers and authors take a small portion of the Scriptures and shape the text to meet a perceived need in the lives of individuals. This type of speaking and writing takes little if any time to help the believer understand the Scriptures, but uses the Scriptures to jump off into what could be found in any secular self help section of bookstores. This does not happen in God Moments In Time. It takes you back to the story of Abraham's servant in Genesis 24 and teaches you how God uses events in life that can become doors of opportunity that shape not only your lives, but the lives of countless individuals many of whom you may never meet. God Moments In Time will not only help you recognize God moments, but will teach you how you can live a life that allows you to experience God moments on an everyday basis. It is refreshing to read a book that uses Scripture as the beginning and the end in teaching us how to open doors of opportunity through everyday events in our lives.

Do you want to be challenged? Jun 21, 2006
I was amazed with the story of the servant of Abraham. Throughout the pages of God Moments in Time, I was challenged by the actions of the servant. I have read Genesis 24 several times but I was amazed at the details of this story when you truly take time to look at them. Mr. Brewer will not only make you think about the details of this story but at the same time challenge you to live a life where you too can experience God Moments in Time. I have just begun to think about the impact my life can have on future generations if I too will be faithful to the doors God opens in my life.
If you are looking for a book that is challenging, motivating, and also easy to read, God Moments in Time is for you! Also the discussion questions for each chapter in the back of the book are a great bonus!! Theses questions are great for individual study and also would work great for small groups
You can learn that much from a servant? Apr 12, 2006
Many good lessons in life to learn from a seemingly (previously thought) insignificant character. The storyline and examples reminded me of my own "God Moments in Time" and how they have formed me to who I am today. The questions for each chapter add to the intimacy of one's quiet time exposing new areas of revelation within the story and one's own life.
God Moments In Time Apr 4, 2006
This book was a great inspiration to me personally as I am sure it would be to all who read it. I find myself in the place of the servant with what seemed to be a simple and non-rewarding task, but never knowing the influence it could have on the future. This is a must read for everyone who gets discouraged thinking " when is the great thing going to happen to me." Every moment could be a God moment in Your time so live it to its fullest and serve your master.
A Moment not to MISS Dec 20, 2005
This is a powerful book. As I read through Mr. Brewers description of a God-Moment, I took time to refelct on my past. The subject matter allowed me to alter my attitude and thoughts of past events in my life. I now look toward a more positive future and actually can't wait for my next God-Moment!!
Easy to read with great study questions Dec 17, 2005
This book is very easy to read. The story of Abraham's servant is brought to life along with the author's personal stories and illustrations of God's faithfulness. If you are looking for a book which has great study questions for both personal use and small groups this book is great!
