Book Review: Restoring All Things
In our culture, where it seems Christian values and morals are being swallowed by tolerance and a false sense of equality, we need the hope of God’s restoration now more than ever. Discouragement comes as easily as scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed, and encouragement often feels out of reach.
However, we are surrounded by hope and don’t even know it. In their book Restoring All Things, Warren Cole Smith and John Stonestreet shine a spotlight on the hidden hope in our society. They tackle hot topics such as unhelpful help, Capitalism, forgiveness, and suffering. They explain their viewpoint, and then share real life stories of people who are making a difference in our broken world. Stories of unwavering faith and steadfastness are told about ministries, organizations, and even celebrities.
The tagline of the book, “God’s audacious plan to change the world through everyday people,” inspires hope of change in and of itself. God does have a plan to change the world, and it is through everyday people like you and me. There is much to be learned and much wisdom to be gained through the inspirational stories displayed on the pages of this book.
