Jesus and the beanstalk by Lori Stanley Roeleveld



Jesus and the Beanstalk: Overcoming Your Giants and Living a Fruitful Life(Abingdon Press, September 2016)
What if a fairy tale and ten Bible verses could free you to live an effective, fruitful life in Christ?
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalk explores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith:
—Affection for others
In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.
My opinion: What a fascinating book! This book had an utterly unique concept and made me think about the story of  Jack and the beanstalk in a totally different light, i don't think I will every think of it lightly again! This book is such a fitting book for the day and age we live in and is very encouraging and mindful about faces the giants in ones own life and ways to overcome them no matter how large they seem to be. It was a perfect blend of humor. allegory and thoughtfulness and I loved it!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
