The blurb about this book describes the theme as: \"When God breaks into your life\". James R. Edwards gives eight passages of Scripture which he re-writes in modern language, commenting as he goes. He shows how, repeatedly, God meets with people in varied ways, breaking into their lives and moving his plans forwards. Often this is despite human nature and failings!

I found it an interesting book, well-written and worth reading, although I wouldn't have wanted to read it in one sitting. As it was I read a chapter a day and found some of them quite thought-provoking, seeing afresh how various Biblical characters responded to God's intrusions.

On the other hand, it wasn't brilliantly inspiring. It's not something I'll be rushing to read again, although for someone who feels as if God's a long way off, it could be encouraging.
