Rooted by Banning Liebscher is a well-done study using the life of David to illustrate how God works in our lives. Instead of offering quick fixes, it calls for something more profound, more difficult, and ultimately more life-changing: patience, contentedness, and surrender to God.
This is not a book of theory, but a book of Jesus and faith. I personally appreciated the author’s focus on the personal journey with Christ, the personal journey of the faith walk, the personal ways in which God calls and uses all of us.
The book and its illustrations from the life of David offer a soothing balm to all who feel hungry for action, for the right now, by reminding us that God is working beneath the surface, and that this “underground” work occurring in our hearts is truly the work that matters.
A reminder that God’s timing is right and perfect, that God’s work is right and perfect, and that your surrender to your place in his timing and his work is necessary.
