Jesus and the Beanstalk: Overcoming Your Giants and Living a Fruitful Life (Abingdon Press, September 2016)
What if a fairy tale and ten Bible verses could free you to live an effective, fruitful life in Christ?
We live in unsettling, challenging times. Everywhere we look, we see giant problems: giant obstacles to sharing faith, giant barriers to peaceful lives, giant strongholds of fear. But what if you knew eight small secrets to unlocking a strength big enough to overcome whatever obstacle life may bring?
Using allegory and a bit of humor, Jesus and the Beanstalkexplores a passage in 2 Peter 1 to uncover eight truths that will help you unleash a larger-than-life faith:
-Faith
-Goodness
-Knowledge
-Self-control
-Perseverance
-Godliness
-Affection for others
-Love
In this creative, refreshing perspective on spiritual growth, you will discover an unyielding strength when you tap the power of a God who is stronger than any beanstalk and bigger than your biggest giants.

And I thought...
Jesus and the Beanstalk was an encouraging read.  A reminder for us that our saviour is into the small things and the big things.  We all face giants.  Some bigger than others. 
This book gives you thought provoking stories and a bit of humor and keeps your interest.  Each section includes a fairy tale or story and scripture. 
 The chapters are short and easy to read.  And is written as a devotional
study with daily reading.   Each section ends with questions for you to dig deeper.
This would be an excellent book for a group study.   

I received a complimentary copy of Jesus and the Beanstalk  from LItfuse in exchange
for my honest review.
