Inspiring Tales Of Those Who Changed The World
Eternity Through The Rearview Mirror by Annette Hubbell is an inspiring book of seventeen tales of ordinary men and women who lived extraordinary lives for Jesus and changed their worlds. “Have a vision, change the world” said Corrie ten Boom. Where we see injustices we need to stand up and declare that it is wrong.
The book is full of names that I have heard of. Why? Because they fought with faith to right the wrongs. There are many who stood against slavery including Abraham Lincoln. Sojourner Truth felt invisible until her Mama told her “There is a God who hears and sees you.” God sees and hears all and He sees you.
I think one of the saddest quotes was “Don’t you know that reading is for white folks?” by Mary McLeod Bethune. She received no schooling until ages eleven but went on to educate other poor folks.
I am sure we have all heard of C.S. Lewis. His Narnia books are famous. His conversion to Christianity is well known but he wrote many other books. I found this quote powerful and sobering “The safest road to Hell is the gradual one.” We need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and not stray from His path.
My personal heroine is Corrie ten Boom and her story is included. I find her to be totally inspiring and a wonderful woman of God. It is no surprise to hear that “Barrack twenty eight became known as the crazy place where there is hope.”
Eternity Through The Rearview Mirror is an easy book to dip in and out of. At the end of each chapter are resources listed to help you dig deeper into each of the individual lives.
This book is truly inspiring as we read of ordinary souls who changed the world.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
