I had the opportunity to review Lazarus Awakening. I am not really sure what I think about this book. I’m not sure if it is just because it wasn’t “my time” to read it or what as it seems to have a lot to say, but for some reason things didn’t seem to “jive” with me. I am guessing it might be because I was expecting something different – something more like a “Bible study” on Lazarus – whereas this is more of a “self-help / improvement / encouragement” type book. Not that that is a bad thing, it’s just different than I was thinking.
There are scriptures at the beginning of each chapter (as well as throughout). There are a lot of good thoughts and references all throughout this book. One in particular that I liked is her reference to “Flesh Woman” – instead of the old me or sin, as often heard.
It is easy to read but I was never really “drawn in” or sure of what the real point was behind what I was reading, but again this could have been because I was expecting something different. Would I recommend it? I can’t really say right now. I do know a lot of what I read seemed good, I’m just not sure why it didn’t seem to “click” with me.
