It's no secret that the world is changing; in fact, change has become the new constant. In the midst of chaos, collapse and uncertainty on all fronts – social, moral, political and physical – humanity is reaching out for something stable to anchor itself to. Enter author Wallace Henley with a clear-as-a-bell reminder that the kingdom of God is unshakable and the perfect anchor in our crazy times.
I cannot offer the same praise for the format and writing style. The tone was more of a seminary lecture than the accessible chat-over-coffee format one might expect from a book purporting to offer encouragement, hope and practical strategies for holding ground amidst chaos. I saw the logic in his decision to break the conversation down by “sphere” but felt it gave the book a fragmented feel instead of providing the desired organization.
There was a lot of valid truth here, and it might be a good read for people in ministry who need to regularly speak knowledgeably to these concerns, but I would not recommend it to a friend for general reading.
