The author has good insight

Doing Life God’s Way is written by David Beckwith and published by Dorrance Publishing.

I have to say I have never really read a book laid out like this one was. It starts with a story of what one might find during a typical day. Like the kids talking around the dinner table or finding flooding in your basement, each story centers on an incident that you may encounter in your lifetime. Following the story, the author lists some verses that apply to the principle he is trying to get across with his story. After you read through the verses he ends with a short devotional that include some questions to further your thinking on the principle.

The author’s insight on the subjects he touched on will give you something to think about. I enjoyed the short stories and verses that followed. I liked most of his expounding on the principle but found some of them to be abrupt and chopping in the style they were written. I gave this book 3/5 stars because although there was helpful information there was too much time spent on the stories and not enough time on the principle being taught.
