    Book Review

Reviewed by Helen Huini for Readers' Favorite

At one of my numerous Sunday school services, our teacher told us we were created to praise and worship God. This duty has stayed with me as a constant reminder, much like what Kim S. Kinney says in her book, Living for His Glory. Most Christians run to God or pray to Him when they have problems that are too big for them to handle. They then forget about God’s intervention once their hearts’ desires are met. When the Spaffords’ daughters were drowning, they all appeared braver than their mother, fully trusting in God’s ability and mercy to save them. Ultimately, their deaths marked the end of Horatio’s biological fatherhood, leaving him broken and devastated. Where and how will he draw the strength to remain in the faith?

My favorite aspect of this book is the author’s inter-textual infusion, which complements the narration and enhances our understanding of the discussion. For example, the symbolic application of Horatio’s disaster to Job’s similar disaster not only justifies the biblical teachings but also reflects that Christians still emulate Job’s decision to remain blameless and righteous. I loved the inclusion of Bible verses alongside the various arguments offered by the author. These scripture texts give Living for His Glory by Kim S. Kinney a sense of authenticity. The author's writing skills are clear in how she imparts biblical truths so that all readers can relate to and appreciate the message of God's Word. The texts can be read from random sections, depending on one's preferences. The chronological unrelatedness of the contents makes it a resourceful tool for Christians taking Bible classes. I recommend it to Christians who desire to dedicate their lives to serving God in truth and integrity. An excellent book for Christians to find daily upliftment and strength in God to combat life's adversities.
