Highly recommended!

"Withstanding the Storm" is a book that I recommend for everyone. They will see a bit of themselves somewhere in the examples given and, hopefully, learn to analyze their actions and take responsibility. Not only an explorer of the Christian faith but even the most devout Christian can learn or be reminded of something they need to embrace more fully. Throughout the book, Lambshead uses both Biblical and real-life examples to demonstrate his points and follows up with verses of scripture that are spot-on to his case. The chapter, The Wall of Thanksgiving, exemplifies our humanness. He shows that we constantly envy what others have and are never satisfied with all that we are blessed. According to Lambshead, such feelings come from possessing an ungrateful heart, much like the Israelites who had been given so much by the Lord--manna from heaven, water from rocks, pillars of fire by night and clouds by day as guides in the wilderness--yet Israel was forever murmuring, complaining and ungrateful. He references the scripture (I Thessalonians 5:18) "In everything give thanks..." Lambshead explains this does not say FOR everything give thanks but rather IN everything give thanks. Regardless of situation and circumstance, we should always be able to give thanks. One point that really resonated with me in Withstanding the Storm was from the chapter, The Wall of Grace. "When the people of the world point their fingers at us, often what they say is absolutely true. We are not perfect. That is why we need grace. That is why we need to be forgiven, just as they themselves need to be forgiven. This is fundamental, but we tend to forget it." This was a great reminder to me that we all need to give and receive the gifts of grace and forgiveness.

A little gem of a book!

by Andrea Lynn on 7/13/2007

"Withstanding the Storm" is a very quick and easy read, but really goes straight to the heart of matters that affect your spiritual walk. The book helps you to move past being an ineffective Christian by building your foundation on the Rock. Storms can and will come, plenty of them, as we walk this narrow path. Some storms are stronger than others, and the practical suggestions in this book helps build your faith so that even the greatest of storms won't knock you down. I truly believe that we Christians in America will soon be facing tough times. Times of real persecution. Will we be able to look someone in the face and say "Yes, I am a Christian!" even when it means possible ridicule, jail, torture, or even death? We all wonder what we would do in a trial like that. "Withstanding the Storm" helps to build the spiritual walls needed to protect you in such a crisis and enable you to stand before the Lord and hear these words we all so long to hear,"Well done, My good and faithful servant." If you are looking for some help to move forward in your faith, or help to move out of stagnancy and luke-warmness in your life, then pick up this little book and hearken to Nathan's testimony. You will be blessed, I sure was!
