Joanna Weaver in her new book “Lazarus Awakening book coverLazarus Awakening” Book Three in the Bethany Trilogy series published by Waterbrook Press gives us Finding Your Place in the Heart of God.

From the back cover:  For many of us, moving the truth of God’s love from our heads to our hearts is a lifelong process.

You believe that God loves the world…
but sometimes you wonder if He truly loves you.

In Lazarus Awakening, the final book in her life-changing Bethany trilogy, Joanna Weaver invites you to experience a divine shift in how you view your relationship with God.

Shattering spiritual formulas for performance-driven faith, Lazarus Awakening clears a path to sweet intimacy with Jesus. You’ll encounter the story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus in a fresh way as you open your heart to the truth that you are cherished—apart from anything you accomplish, apart from anything you bring. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unhindered by fear, regret, or self-condemnation.

This edition includes:
• a bible study guide for both individual reflection and group discussion
• a bonus chapter on laying aside everything that hinders your life with Jesus
• tools and resources for living fully and freely as God’s beloved
No more graveclothes, no more tombs… Love is calling your name.

At the beginning of each chapter Ms. Weaver has a page that provides the specific verses from John Chapters eleven and twelve that she focuses on in the chapter. This way you know what the Bible says before she expounds on it. Okay everyone knows Lazarus dies and then four days later Jesus called him out of the tomb. There is a lot of drama in the story of Lazarus. And then there is a lot of depth. When we look closely we can find a lot of Lazarus in each of us. There is a moment in the book when Ms. Weaver teaches us to pray everyday, “Lord, wake me every day”. Ms. Weaver provides fresh insights into a major event in the Bible. This is a book that we should read slowly so that we capture all of the rich detail that Ms. Weaver provides us. Eleven chapters that can help transform us. There is even a study guide at the end. I believe that this is a book for all of us that we might actually read more than once because of its richness. I also believe that this would make a great gift for friends and family so that they could be transformed as well.
