A Spiritual Battle
Hope In The Balance by Jim Baton is a contemporary Christian novel and the second book in the Hope Trilogy series. Book one needs to be read first.
Life is a spiritual battle. We do not always understand life but we need to know that there is power in prayer. When life is good – pray. When life is terrible – pray. Prayer changes hearts, minds and lives. We need to “pray with faith.” Pray believing God for an answer.
We do not need to be in a church building to be heard by God. He hears us right where we are. The church of God is the people and not the building.
A prayer walk for our towns is one of the best things we can do for others. We can pray for shops, businesses and residents.
The God of the Bible is alive and active today. He still changes lives and He still speaks through visions and dreams. We receive spiritual gifts from Him that we need to use wisely.
The novel shows lives changed by God. It deals with murder, corruption and lies. It is a powerful read showing that when God is on the move, there are also counter forces at work. But the good news is … our God is able.
This Hope Trilogy is an exciting one.
A word of caution: I found some of the language used not what I was expecting in a Christian novel. I do realise this was to make the novel more realistic but I am not a fan of bad language.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
