Shaped by His Presence Called For a Purpose
by David Shearman
Publisher:River Publishing from Joining the Dots Distribution
This book is a really well written guide book to understanding what we are called to be and how we can best go about achieving this aim.
So Presence Carriers then? Taking the image of the bearers of the ark and those that witnessed it David Shearing shows how we can all be Presence Carriers, carrying the presence of the living lord within us and achieving this through actions as simple as listening, acting and doing that which we are called to do.
Whatís so good about this book though is the way in which it blends the biblical with the reality of now, the charismatic with the mundane, I like how we are not asked to place any on a pedestal, including the author, but are simply called to live in the active presence of the Lord and to reach out past our humdrum lives into the reality of stepping out in faith, something not nearly as daunting as perhaps you thought it was.
I found this book to be one that was easy to read, down to earth and that spoke clearly and without fuss. A book Iíll be sharing with my housegroup and would recommend to any newer Christian or one struggling with hearing and feeling God in their lives.
