Sheila Walsh’s book “The Shelter of God’s Promises” is a book about just that. This book contains 10 promises of God, and how they can be applied to life. It also contains a study outline at the end of the book that can be used in along with the book to do a Bible study. After reading through it I do not feel that calling it an ‘In-depth Bible study’ would be a correct description. I do like that it is at the end of the book and not stuck in between the chapters as so many books are now doing. It makes it more optional, and doesn’t interrupt the flow of the book for those who opt-out of doing it.
There were parts of this book that I found inspiring, helpful, and encouraging, yet other parts didn’t sit well with me, but I couldn’t tell you why. For this reason I recommend using discernment while reading this book. I don’t care for the quotes from the text being stuck in brackets in the middle of the page. They didn’t seem to have any purpose there and often weren’t even the quotes that impacted me the most. I do think that Sheila did a great job conveying Biblical truth. Overall it was a really good read, but I did have a little trouble staying interested.
