“Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World”

“Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World” is David Jeremiah’s follow-up to “What in the World is Going On?” It is not a sequel per se, and I must admit I did not read “What in the World is Going On?” although I did purchase it.

I found “Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World” a very difficult read. It is overstuffed with illustrations, anecdotes and other material which seems forced and actually distracts from the author’s message as opposed to enhancing it.

The message of this work is an important one, and it is this – In spite of the mess this world is in, as Christians, we can live with confidence because of the promise of Christ’s return. That is an important message and one of which we need to be reminded, especially in difficult times.

On October 8th, “Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World”, was number five on the Wall Street Journal’s best selling list in the non-fiction category so, obviously, many folks are buying it.

It almost seems the text was a compilation of sermon transcripts. This seldom works without some editing, and it did not work (at least for me) in this case. As much as I love listening to David Jeremiah teach and preach, I cannot recommend this book.
