Carol Kent in her new book, “Unquenchable book coverUnquenchable” published by Zondervan helps us Grow a Wildfire Faith that Will Endure Anything.

From the back cover: How to burn with a wildfire faith despite the firestorms of life

Where is your faith today—first sparks of faith, bright blue flames, radiating heat, raging bonfire, red-hot coals, cooling embers, cold grey ashes? Is your love for God burning so brightly that you are consumed by its passion? Are those who surround you drawn to its radiance and warmed by its heat? Are sparks flying from you, spreading a wildfire faith that ignites passion in others?

Or has your passion cooled, your light dimmed, or your fire been quenched?

Throughout history God has chosen fire to represent his awesome power, his judgment and wrath, his protection, and his Shekinah glory: the flaming sword guarding Eden, the burning bush, the pillar of fire, the fiery furnace, the chariot of fire, the burning coal, the flame upon the altar, the lake of fire, and the flaming eyes of the Son of Man upon the throne—these are only a few of the images he has seared into our minds that we might know him more fully.

God is the source of that first flicker that sparked your faith and one day you will stand in his holy presence, look into the flaming eyes of Jesus, and see his burning love for you face to face. But between that first flicker and that heavenly meeting, there is life to be lived on this earth. The challenge we all face is that life can dim our fire or even quench it, whether by the soggy mist of the mundane, or the quenching downpour of crisis.

Carol Kent has discovered that God’s Word is filled with the secrets of nurturing his fire in our lives, sometimes painfully so, other times even undetected, refining, purifying, cauterizing, healing, and ultimately reshaping us into the image of his Son.
Author and speaker Carol Kent will take you into God’s word, and into your own story, to reveal the true power of the fire God has placed in you, to fan the flames of your faith, stir your passion, and embolden you to spark wildfires that will spread to forever change the landscape of this world beyond your wildest imagination.

God’s fire is in your life. Fan the flames. Burn brightly. Start a wildfire!

Jesus tells us that no man lights a candle then places it under the bed.  No, what he does is he places it in a candle holder and mounts it on the wall so that the whole room is lit.  On the candle holder, behind the candle is a polished bronze that magnifies the light of the candle.  Carol Kent wants us to be like that candle burning brighter and brighter so that we can never be put out.  However we have an adversary that wants us quenched because the darkness is his kingdom.  In many stories Ms. Kent shows us what faith can do in severe trials. We all need a boost to our faith to brighten our flames.  This book should do it.  I think that everyone should have a copy of this book and give it as a gift to friends and family so that their flame can burn more brightly as well.  Everyone will be better off for it.
