The Shelter of God's Promises by Sheila Walsh

The Shelter of God's Promises by Sheila Walsh, ia an uplifting spiritual self help book, that addresses and offers biblical comfort for the real life circumstances and the unmet physical and emotional needs that many readers face.  Intoday's world we are faced with the frustrations of everyday life: lonliness, fear, financial uncertainty, and materialism, to name a few.  Walsh systematucally covers ten common emotion and issues, and expresses the biblical solution to unmet human needs and wants.  Regardless of our circumstances- whether mundane or traumatic, we can all depend on God's promises to strengthen us.  We can depends on God's promises with unquestionable assurance- and there is vast biblical evidence to porve this is true as indicated in the text of Walsh's book. 

Walsh draws on her own expreiences and anecdotes, to share with the reader, how God has followed through with his promises made in his word, the bible when it pertains to fulfilling our needs and helping us through troubles. Drawing on the bible: both stories from the old and new testaments, as well as specific biblical verses, Walsh illustrates how God is always present and always aware of our needs and of our desires to see his promises fulfilled. This book is sure to offer biblical comfort and hope for those going through difficult times in their lives.  This empowering book does not offer solutions to make one's problems or needs simply go away, but rather it offrers insight into how God works, thinks and acts.  This book isn't too theologically indepth and is written in simple language that can be appreciated by any reader- which is important, because in today's time pressed world, people are seeking solutions and help and may not have the patience or education required for indepth Christian authors such as Chesterton, C.S. Lewis or Spurgeon. 

This perfect is perfectly written, and I feel that it would be just the thing needed to uplift any reader who is discouraged or in pain.  In the end, is a bible study for those readers who wish to have a more indepth biblical study into the issues raised in the book.  As a blogger for booksneeze, I recieved this book for the purposes of writing this review.
