With the Christian world today currently in a season of lent, the glories of the Spring are right around the corner. While so many saints are awaiting the annual celebration of Christ’s rebirth, many in the kingdom of believers are facing a much different season, a time a great paradox. For so many in Christendom feel farther and farther away from their personal walks of faith. While many believe that the moment we receive Christ into our lives, we step into a lifetime journey—a journey where we continually grow in right behavior. But for millions of Christians being in sync with this journey seems far from reach.
This is the premise of Synced: Living Connected to the Heart of Jesus, by Jennifer Kennedy Dean.
Author Jennifer Kennedy Dean, nationally acclaimed writer and speaker, believes that the way for believers seeking to perfect their walks of faith is to live synced to the heart of Jesus. That this practice of staging one’s day-to-day lives on the contingency of hope, manifested through daily devotion and prayer can bring the individual believer closer to Jesus than ever thought before via the Lord’s Prayer.
This book is both a well-researched edition, as well as a simple to digest, easy-to-read book, which will help even the fervent in their faith a fresh new example of the personal perfection that only the practicing of faith can provide. Dean’s simple model of prayer provides both a scholastic outlook as well as a practical, simplistic perspective that many would be hard pressed to find invaluable.
While this book is neither new nor revolutionary in it’s presentation (due to the nature of the books message), but this book is well written and would be of particular necessity and interest to those looking to bring the Lord’s Prayer into their daily Biblical study. This book presents a common tone- to know your faith is to know yourself, for you are without separation from the heart of God.
While one may not need to be reminded that faithful prayer, prayer so deeply rooted within your heart that nothing can ever take it from you, this edition does contain a message that would not hurt many to read. For to know that God loves you. And not only does he approve of you, He’s smiling over you, especially when in the word, in his prayer is an idea that never gets old.
