God Wrestling Book Review


Genesis 32:24-25
So Jacob was left alone and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched Jacobís hip so that his hip was wrenched...

Genesis 32:26
...Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

Jacob continued his wrestling match all night to receive the blessing. This was his life changing event and as a result God changed his name from Jacob (the deceiver) to Israel (the one who struggles with God and overcomes) reflecting Jacob's character change.
Being blessed by God often comes from struggling through tough times. Itís when we have nowhere else to turn that we passionately hold on to God for the answer.

I never had a deep understanding of this Bible story until I read God Wrestling by Mike Evans. Yet the book has more to offer than a simple surface understanding of a Bible passage. Mr. Evans writes of his personal struggles and life changing meetings with God. In his book he takes the reader through steps to releasing the power of God in their lives and recognizing their own self-created obstacles.

God Wrestling challenges believers to give up trying to live a Christian life and let Christ live His life through them according to His purpose not theirs. Evans shows the vast difference between knowing of Jesus and having been with Jesus.
"One day, fully surrendered to the purposes of God, we will render more fruit than a lifetime of good intentions."

Is this book for you?
I would recommend it for any believer who is committed in his faith and is serious about developing a deeper knowledge of Jesus Christ. At 173 pages, this book is not long, but you should be prepared to spend time meditating over many thought-provoking passages.

About the author:
Mike Evans is an evangelist with a passion for the lost. He is an award-winning journalist, television producer and minister. He is author of the New York Times Bestseller Beyond Iraq and The Unanswered Prayers of Jesus.
