3 Stars: The Blessing by John Trent

I was really excited to be reading about the blessing for two reasons. I had just read "A Place Called Blessing" by the same author John Trent and that book was SUPERB!!! One of the best books I've read in a long time. Second reason is because my dad is always telling me about the promises and blessings that God gives to us. In fact, just the other day, he told me to learn more about the blessings. The first thing I thought of was this book. So I picked it up and started.

But the book was slow and difficult for me to read. I kept eagerly looking to find out what this blessing thing was all about and I couldnt find it. Halfway through the book, I finally realized what the blessing was and it has 5 aspects to it. The author gives one chapter per aspect. I do believe the blessing is important and something we should all use and could incorportate into our lives, but I think the author could have done a much better job writing about it. Because of the authors boring slow writing, I give this book 3 stars. It meant well, but its hard to get into it and really enjoy it. I also didn't find the authors writing style inspirational at all. How disappointing! What a drop off from the story-telling emotional writing that John Trent used in his book "A Place Called Blessing"

A disclaimer - I received this book from the publisher Thomas Nelson free of charge but I always give honest reviews. I want you to be able to choos the best book based on stars because I know you have limited time and energy to read. I would not recommend this book to you and your friends.
