The Seasons of God by Richard Blackaby is a book that examines the seasons of life, and how what we observe and experience in nature applies to our lives as well. The book covers each season, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter founded on Biblical principles and fleshed out with many life experiences drawn from both the Bible and the author. The book is divided in three sections – Embracing the Pattern, Embracing the Seasons, and Thriving in All Our Seasons. This book, as in Richard’s other books, is very well done and will challenge its reader (as it did me) no matter their age. While some of the word usage will require a dictionary, Richard’s writing style flows with well throughout ideas, and is presented in such a way that you will not want to put the book down.
On a personal note – this book has made an extreme impact on my life. The timing of reading this book is nothing other than a divine appointment with God and the author. As I concluded each chapter I was prompted to reflect and respond. As a result I have a clearer picture of what season I’m currently in, and will respond by thriving in each and every season and moment of my life.
This book was an advance uncorrected copy and was received for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
