Introduction

Title: When God Stepped In: 51 Encounters that Showed Me God is Real and I Can Trust in Him

Author: Bill Fisher

Publisher: LifeRich Publishing

Publication Date: Oct 2015

Format: Paperback

Length: 192 pagres

OVERVIEW

Most people would find losing a spouse in a car crash to cause crippling doubts about God’s goodness. For Bill Fisher, it just made him realize how many times God had miraculously saved his life before. This book is his account of many times in which God protected him, healed him, or intervened in some way to accomplish things beyond Fisher’s wildest imaginations.

Whereas this book is presented as a memoir, it is structured and reads more like a Christian study book than anything else. Fisher’s stories are fascinating, but he focuses more on explaining what readers can learn from them than on describing each adventure in full dramatic detail. Readers looking for something to read slowly and to analyze will find this book very helpful, whereas those looking for lighter, faster reading will find it difficult to finish.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

3 out of 5 stars

Suggested Audience

Christians looking for study materials about modern-day examples of divine intervention.

Christian Impact

Each chapter has a brief story of a time when God intervened in Fisher’s life, a prayer thanking God, and a conclusion offering a Bible verse. This structure makes it ideal to read a chapter each day for devotions or personal study.
