Book Review: It’s a God Thing by Don Jacobson
It’s a God Thing is full of stories about miracles, some extraordinary and some seemingly more ordinary, but in reality no less miraculous. One of the goals of the writer(s) of this book was to remind the readers that God’s guidance is all around us every day (from the introduction). I think they did an excellent job.
Some of the stories may seem like mere coincidences, but what I like to call God-incidents, and I am agreeing with the author(s) here that such things could be rightly called miracles.
Not every story has a completely happy ending but every story is truly edifying in its own way to some degree or another. Every story is also unique.
One of the very best things about this book was the very large variety in the type of stories, all the different topics of miracles that were included. They were not all about physical healing although those were included. They were not all about financial miracles although those were included. Some other topics were healing from addictions, salvation from natural or man-made disasters, and just plain old spiritual salvation, which as the author(s) pointed out could very well be the greatest miracle of them all. There were other topics as well, almost any topic you can imagine was included.
Reading this book didn’t exactly give me faith, since faith is not made from things that are seen or experienced but it gave me the desire to apply my faith to my life. That is what inspiring faith is all about. It can’t be imparted but it can be encouraged to be used. This book did that for me.
If you would like encouragement to apply your faith in your life this book is for you. If you generally like miracle stories this book is for you. If you are a staunch skeptic this book probably isn’t going to change your mind. No book, no story, no testimony is likely to change your mind. Only the touch of God will do that.
