A Teaser And A Recap
Rest by Joy Ohagwu is a contemporary novella. It is the eighth book in The New Rulebook series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Rest recaps on some of the previous action as well as setting the scene for what is to come. It is both a teaser and a reminder to the reader.
It is wonderful that the reader gets to see the family relaxing and interacting together, after all their adventures. The reader really ‘sees’ the human side to the characters.
A great little read which I enjoyed. I am eagerly awaiting the ninth book in the series and looking forward to the family’s next adventure.
Freedom by Joy Ohagwu is a contemporary Christian suspense. It is the seventh book in the New Rulebook series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Freedom continues the story of the Towers as Robert is fighting a presidential campaign. God is very much at the centre of the novel. In Him we are new creations, no matter what our past. God has redeemed us and if we recognise His calling on our lives, we will be much richer.
The past has the power to affect our future. Joy Ohagwu shows how we need to rob the past of its power by submitting our lives to God. “I won’t clutch the rags of my past when a glorious future awaits at His feet.” We need to trust God and follow His plan for our lives. We need to be “trusting God in chaos.”
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.
Fighting In Prayer
Rescued by Joy Ohagwu is a Christian suspense novel. It is the fifth book in the New Rulebook series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Rescued has the theme of faith and trust in God. In desperate situations where we see no answer, the answer, the answer is to trust God. “Trusting God completely. No more fear.” Faith and fear are opposites. If we have faith, there is no need to fear.
Prayer is important. “Faith grew in her heart the more she prayed… she trusted God.” Prayer will help to strengthen our faith and build a relationship with God. God always hears and answers prayer but not always in the way we want or when we want. In times of difficulty being able to mobilise a prayer team is vital. “The prayer team members formed an emergency prayer line.” Just knowing that others stand with you is a comfort and fighting every battle on your knees is a must.
