Book Review: Globequake by Wallace Henley

How can you survive in a world where every aspect of life is falling apart? How can you understand the times in which we live as well as know how to respond? What difference does the kingdom of God make in today's world?

Answering those questions is the theme of Wallace Henley's book, Globequake: Living in the Unshakeable Kingdom While the World Falls Apart. Henley divides the book into three sections. Section one gives an overview of the issues--the way in which the world is being shaken; understanding the times in which we live; the nature of the kingdom of God; and the areas of life where the kingdom can make a difference. Part two of the book goes into greater detail explaining how the kingdom of God can make a difference in six areas--person, church, family, education, government, and business/marketplace. In each of the areas Henley describes what each looks like and then gives instruction on how to strengthen the kingdom of God in each of these areas. Part three of the book emphasizes the importance of hope. Though we face a daunting challenge, we don't have to give up because the kingdom of God will triumph.

Henley is clearly an experienced author who possesses great storytelling techniques which relate his points to everyday life. As a journalist and a former White House and DC insider, and his experiences as a pastor and family man, he gives an insight few people can deliver. I feel this book would be an excellent resource for pastors who want to make their church a rock solid refuge from the storms of life. It is also a great resource for business, political, and education leaders who want to use Biblical principles to keep their ship steered in the right direction during turbulent times.His grasp of the Scriptures is profound. This is a book is a must-read for those who are concerned about what they see happening around them.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
