“No greater priority exists for the believer than knowing Christ through the study of His word and the intimacy of prayer.” ~Beth MooreIn Whispers of Hope, Beth Moore invites readers to join a 10-week journey into God’s Word and the hope He offers. I asked my friend Kerry to read and review this book for me, because she's raved about Beth's other books and I was super busy with school.
If you are familiar with Beth Moore’s other works, you will find her familiar voice etched throughout the pages of Whispers of Hope. Her devotionals contain Scripture verses and teaching on the various parts of Scripture she has selected. She also includes research she has conducted into the meaning of words in the Bible, which adds depth to her devotionals. Her own personal life stories assist in engaging the audience and clarifying her point.
I was delighted that I found the devotions to be Scripturally based and insightful. The recommended prayer structure helped me to slow down and spend time with God beyond just making requests of Him. However, I did tend to pair the suggested prayer structure with other previously studied aspects of prayer. In my opinion, Moore accomplishes her goal of helping readers to develop their relationship with God, through their use of Whispers of Hope as a tool to delve deeper into God’s word and to spend time with Him.
