Book Review: Awakening

I received Awakening by Stovall Weems for free for review from Water Brook Multnomah for free. This is a 21 day devotional focused helping you becoming more passionate about your relationship with God. The book is broken into 3 parts. The first part talks about what awakening is. Part two focuses on prayer, fasting (not from food, but from a worldly mindset), and coming to agreement with God's will. Each chapter has an "Awakening Story" to inspire the reader. Part three is a 21 day devotional. It has references to scripture, Bible reading plan, prayer focus, and a section for journaling. The devotional also has a reading plan for the first 2 parts of the book if a reader chooses to follow that plan to read the first 2 parts. There are also small group questions in the back.

The author is slightly wordy throughout the chapters, but has great content and strong scriptural support. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in growing a deeper relationship with God.
