Besides having a "slight" addiction to collecting Bibles, I have recently begun collecting other spiritual books. I suppose it's not a collection as it is a "dream read" list and I just find all the versions of the Bible fascinating. When I was given the chance to try out and review Michael Gifford's book titled "Hope, Anchor of the Soul" I was excited, it sounded like a book that was right up my alley.
The book arrived and I started to read it, each chapter has a title along with a memory work quote or verse. There are a few pages of writing from the author, along with many biblical references you can look up yourself and then at the end is a few pages of questions meant to have you interact with the book. This question and answer section is titled "Exercise Your Mind."
In the Exercise Your Mind section you have true and false questions, multiple choice questions and fill in the blank questions. I have found this helps keep my focused on what I am reading. You know how sometimes when you are reading you can get side tracked and forget what you are reading or by time you get to the end of the book you forget the beginning of the book, thanks to this question and answer section you can interact with the book to be sure you are committing the information to memory and actually learning.
The book itself is very well written and made to be understood easily. I personally would recommend this for a small group, it would be a lovely book to do in a church small group or even a mom's group. Everyone can use Hope and this book certainly gives you plenty of hope.
You can find this wonderful book on Amazon, pick it up and see how awesome it is for yourself.
