Religion - Christian Life
Ron Carpenter Jr. is able to explain difficult concepts a blunt and honest way while remaining positive, uplifting and encouraging. His writing style is very down-to-earth. He shares things he's learned in his spiritual journey. The concepts he explains express profound thoughts that will make you "Selah" - pause and think on that. Reading this book was much like reading a sermon a day. Carpenter's writing will encourage and enlighten readers, while challenging them with a new way of seeing why one face suffering, trials, persecutions, and difficulties.
“The Necessity of an Enemy” would make an ideal study for both individuals or small groups. Each chapter is loaded with solid biblical teachings and lessons.
There are three main reasons for bad things in life: (1) You are off track and God is helping you refocus on what is important; (2)You are on the right track and about to reach a new level with God but Satan wants to distract you all he can and discourage you; and (3) being persecuted is actually what it means to be blessed - if we are living as we should be, the world is going to hate us. I highly recommend this book, if you've been undergoing great conflict and difficulty in your Christian walk.
I wish to thank the great folks at Waterbrook Multnomah for the complimentary copy of this book.
