The Battle Of The Old And The New
Delivered by Joy Ohagwu is a Christian contemporary suspense. It is the sixth book in the New Rulebook series but can be read as a stand-alone.
This New Rulebook series has been a cracking one. Delivered focuses on Pete Zendel. Delivered shows how God is the God of the new. He is the God of restoration. He takes the old version of us and begins to transform us into the image of His Son.
Delivered has many Godly themes including that of the importance of prayer. “So he went to God in prayer for direction.” Prayer is essential at all times. Prayer is just talking to God and building a relationship with Him.
Life is a battle against more than we can see. Life is a spiritual battle as the forces of good and evil vie for our attention. We need to keep our eyes fixed on God and make the right choices.
Although we are a new creation in Christ Jesus, there will still be battles with the old self. We need to make sure that the voice we are listening to is that of Jesus.
The novel deals with the theme of trust – trusting God, trusting others, trusting ourselves. We need to make sure that we have someone we can trust enough who will step in if we begin to stray from our walk with Jesus.
Families are important. We all need families who will pull together and look out for each other.
The New Rulebook series is a cracking one and I am now looking forward to book seven.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
