Book Review: "The Miracle in the Middle"

The Miracle in the Middle by Charlotte Gambill is a book about perseverance, about trusting God with all you encounter while traveling from point A to point B. Gambill explains the excitement of the beginning and drive we feel at the end, then shows how the middle tempts us to give up, turn back, stay put, or change course. Her purpose is to encourage us to continue on toward the goal.

Using Bible stories and life experiences, Gambill tells readers how to respond to a variety of possible experiences often encountered in the middle, ending each of the eleven chapters with thought-provoking action and prayer points.

Overall I liked this book which contained several useful insights. The analogies Gambill chose made her points clear and memorable. There were a few places where she tweaked the Bible stories to make her point, presenting her thoughts about what may have been going on in people's heads as Bible fact; this was a concern. But I still appreciated all of the encouragement I found to stay the course whenever I find myself in the middle.

Thomas Nelson Publishers sent me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
