The Grave Robber Book Review & $25 Family Christian Gift Card Giveaway


I have another book to tell you about, The Grave Robber: How Jesus Can Make Your Impossible Possible by Mark Batterson.  Yes, this book is about the grave robber himself, Jesus.  Batterson walks us through seven miracles or signs spotlighted in the Gospel of John, each revealing a dimension of Jesus' power.  You will recount Jesus turning water into wine all the way to raising Lazarus from the dead, He really is incredible.

Batterson tell us, "Don't seek miracles.  Seek Jesus.  And if you seek Jesus, miracles will find you."  I love this!  After all, Jesus is the source of every miracle.  Simple words with profound meaning.  I often become distracted in my Christian walk and it usually doesn't take long before I realize that I am ignoring the cornerstone of my faith.  How can I walk the path God sets before me if I am ignoring the maker of my path?  Seek Jesus.

Batterson doesn't just focus on miracles of the past but rather invites you to join Jesus in the present.  Miracles happen TODAY all around us both big and small.  Batterson helps open your eyes to it all.  He has a knack for drawing you in and showing you how miracles of the past are inspiring and relevant now.  This book is encouraging and life-giving.

Ready for an exciting giveaway?  One of you will win a $25 Family Christian gift card!  Open to US/Canadian residents only.  Enter below and good luck.
