It’s Time To Be Bold (book review)
Michael W. Smith is a very accomplished Christian singer/song writer that has been singing for many years with many of his own songs. Many of his songs are well known by most believers and some have even crossed over to secular charts and popularity. He writes this short book giving a short view of what he believes in. Each chapter deals with a different area of life that is important.
He tells short stories of experiences he has had throughout his musical career. With each story he ties in verses from the Bible and from some of his songs. Overall, he shows what it means to be a believer and what it means to be bold and why it is important.
At the end of each short chapter, he challenges the reader in how to apply what he is talking about. His primary motivation is to point people to Jesus and to live for God by being His witness in this world. He discusses how to find your place in this world and going through tough times. Some of the topics he covers are never being alone, following directions, a listening Father, running into battle and more.
Michael uses many of his own troubles to show as an example of how even he has troubles. You can hear his heart of compassion for people and his desire that they know Jesus.
This is a very short and easy book to read. I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to grow in their faith and belief.
