Catch this FREE Book!

Caught Off Guard: Encounters with the Unexpected God is a book where the writer draws from various events in Scripture to show how God extended mercy to someone who didn't deserve it, or exhibited His power and might in unprecedented ways.

The book is divided into four major sections: God shows you his heart; God calms our fears; God provides what you need; and God radically transforms you. The book is written from a decidedly Christian viewpoint, as the author spends the bulk of each chapter discussing a certain passage of Scripture or a specific event. I found the footnotes helpful for following the portion of Scripture referenced. At times the author did a superb job in intermingling Bible stories with real life stories, dealing with the same scriptural principal. More often than not, however, the flow of a chapter was unnatural as he attempted to weave the Biblical principle into everyday life.

This book is best read in little chunks and with plenty of time to reflect upon what was just read. At the end of every chapter the author gives you four groups of questions to challenge you to own the chapter's content. For example, at the end of the chapter titled "Are you growing in humble honesty?," the author asks "What are some godly reasons to evaluate the negatives of your life?" This is an excellent question not only for the reader to meditate on, but also could be the beginning of a lively discussion with someone.

Armchair Interview says: A quiet read for personal reflection.
