Review by Mark Kelly

There are certain books that come along every once-in-a-while that change you, they take the straight line that is one’s thinking and theology and bend it so it’s heading off in another direction. The Grace Outpouring is one of those books!

From the beginning of this book you realise that you are dealing with a man that is like most other believers. This is a man just trying to get on with his life, enjoying family, earning a living and loving God.  And also in some ways this is also a man trying to ignore what God is saying until the pressure of the calling is too great.

Roy Godwin (of whom this book is focused around) is a man who finds himself running a Christian retreat centre in Wales based in a place called Ffald-y-Brenin. This centre becomes a place of revival, where the presence of God is tangible and very real. Roy, through this charge, discovers that God simply wants to pour out His blessings on those who wish to receive Him. In essence this is a book of prayer; how to pray and how to bless people (and places) through prayer and see the results in action.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION

The Shack

Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend...

Against his better judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack's world forever.

In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, 'Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?' The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!
