I was sent the book, “The Next Great Move of God” to review. This is a book about “Christians Returning to their Hebraic Roots.” The book is written by Dr. LaSalle R. Vaughn who pastors New Life Christian Center in San Antonia, TX. Here is a quick overview from the back of the book:
Find the key to godly success in faith, family, finances, and fellowship with Him. Many Christians have understood the topic of salvation, but have never contemplated the Jewishness of Jesus. Understanding the culture in which Jesus lived will help you properly interpret the Bible. The Next Great Move of God: Christians Returning to Their Hebriac Roots will open your eyes to the Jewish world of Jesus. This profound book reveals that the Christian life is much more than salvation; it’s a lifestyle of obedience to the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation.”
You’ve received God’s salvation…but find yourself frustrated and struggling in certain areas of your life. Your new found obedience to previously hidden meanings in the Scriptures will transform your life.
Just a few weeks ago, my husband and I were discussing with my in laws how nice it would be to be able to take classes in Hebrew history,so we could understand the culture of Jesus’ time. It is just impossible to find the time though, nor the extra finances to take a college course in this. This book has been a great resource and arrived just in time!
This book is very easy to understand and made me think about Bible passages in ways that I hadn’t before. Dr. Vaughn writes about the Ark of the Covenant, Sukkoth, Yom Kippur, and lots of other topics in this book. There are Biblical references for everything he discusses, which is very important to me. I was not born Jewish and have no close friends who are Jewish, so I have never heard the history behind many of the Jewish holidays and symbols. It was very interesting to read about these things because I have always been curious!
Although I may not agree with every single one of his points and interpretations, I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who desires to learn more about the Hebraic roots of Christianity!
