Favor in the Rough: Discovering God's Favor in Challenging Times" is written by Dr. Debra D. Givens. This book is very well-written with a Religious-Christian plot, based on scripture from within the Bible along with personal experiences. It would appeal to all readers who are pursuing questions on scriptures and other religious matters. There are many heroes within the pages of the Bible that God has appointed to serve him in a unique way. Dr. Givens helps her readers understand their actions and purposes during good and bad times. Dr. Debra Givens is a pastor within her church and is no stranger in the field of helping to understood the word of the Lord. However, speaking the word of the Lord and writing about it are two different matters. It is often hard to get a person to visualize the words you are speaking aloud. For some, if the words are being read by them their own visual understanding takes place. That very thing happens when Dr. Given's words are read. Through this entire book she elaborates on the meaning of different scripture segments, the stories behind them, and how each can relate to every individual person in their own way.
Reading the book is like being at a sermon where the pastor is offering a question and answer session, but the reader has the ability to review what is already stated and go over it again if needed. The passages, scripture, scripture explanations, and the personal experiences of Dr. Givens have allowed me to understand certain circumstances in my life where I was previously lost. This book is a great self help book when the topic is understanding God and his ways.
