It was never my intention to blog about books. Like most of you, I enjoy reading a variety of subjects, and none more than those devoted to deepening my understanding of God's word. A heap of them come-and-go from my life, but rarely do I feel compelled to recommend any one in particular.
Except this one ... "The Coming Economic Armageddon"
This is Dr. David Jeremiah's (ministry & bio info here) newest collection, and I encourage you to grab a copy (here). What a chilling, though hope-filled read!
In the span of a finely researched, well-documented and biblically cohesive 263 pages, Dr. Jeremiah delivers a non-extreme framework for the economic context in which we now live.
Nothing about the material will come as any great surprise. What it will do is shatter any illusions we might harbor about the dots connected between geo-political intrigues and economic mayhem. Those same dots are at the very heart of God's prophetic purposes.
I'm all for the grace and light (and light-weight) sides of life. I doubt anyone relishes levity & laughter more than I do. But sometimes I feel inclined to heft the weightier edges of life.
Dr. Jeremiah has placed in my hands a lead anvil.
I hope to place it in yours.
