Book Review: The Twelve by Parker Bradley - End of Review Summary
Hello everyone, welcome to our summary book review for The Twelve - A Transformational Journey Through The Minor Prophets, by Parker Bradley.
I thought I would do a summary review since the general review lasted a year. When I started the book, I thought studying each prophet for a month would be ample time, but that was not the case. Parker hit the nail on the head when he said that this study was just a tip of the iceberg. Even though most of the prophet books are fairly short, they are intense and packed with information that will take many reads, under prayer, to further unpack and digest.
What I like a about each study, is the reminder of God’s character. The Word, through the prophets, shows who God is.
God is love - through His allowance of repentance and restoration, through His Son - Jesus Christ.
God is patient - encouraging people throughout time to seek Him, not wanting any to perish.
God is gracious - He is slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness.
God is just - there is no counsel against Him, because He is the perfect judge.
God is faithful beyond our comprehension. The Word through the prophets showed God’s people unfaithfulness over and over again - yet God has remained faithful to His promise of restoration.
God is the ultimate divine authority - His power is immeasurable.
This study has not only shown how God’s character saved generations of rebellious people, but has enabled me to reflect on how that same character saved me, His rebellious daughter. Praise the Lord! God is good - always.
It’s seems only fitting that our next book review will be, The Names of God, by Marilyn Hickey. We’ll be doing the same schedule - one name a month. I can’t wait to delve into this study!
Thank you for listening to this book review. Until next time - peace be with you.
