Book Review: One in a Million

One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land
One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land
By Priscilla Shirer
B&H Books, 2010
English, 224 pgs.

Book Description:
The Egyptians in Exodus 1 were intent on enslaving the Israelites, wearing them down so that God’s chosen people would become disillusioned and not live up to their destiny. Of the original two million Israelites who received God’s invitation to enter the Promised Land, only two actually entered it!
Similarly, modern day Christians often hear and understand the promises of God each Sunday morning at church but then rarely choose to experience them in everyday life. In One in a Million, Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer invites us to change that pattern for good, living beyond our circumstances and expecting to see God move in miraculous ways day after day. Without a doubt, we can find and follow God’s purpose for our journey. We can make it to the Promised Land!

My Review:
I like the message behind this book, but I feel like I've heard this before. It's a really great book though. I've enjoyed reading it. I think it would make a good women's study book. There are lots of points that would make for great conversation starters and the chapters are not so long that you couldn't read each one and get prepared for a group setting.

I was provided with a copy of the book for review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review. Thank you to Shelby at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists for sending me the book to review.
