Immanuel! God Is Still With Us!
John L., Jr. Hoh
Edifying Read ... Recommended ... 4 stars
The work consists of eight chapters covering 146 pages. Chapter one discusses the prophet Isaiah and Ahaz and the sign God would send as a fulfilling of his promises. Jahweh/Immanuel is the hope of mankind. Jahweh/Immanuel, origin of time, the universe and the world are covered in Chapter two. Chapter three discusses Jahweh/Immanuel, the creation of mankind, marriage, and why the world was created. Preservation of Jahweh/Immanuel God’s creation is presented in Chapter four. Chapter five offers the notion that Jahweh/Immanuel God is both powerful in addition to being compassionate and caring about us humans. Salvation and the role of Jahweh/Immanuel are the theme for Chapter six. Chapter seven reminds us that while we may not always see the providential hand of Jahweh/Immanuel God in our lives we may rest assured that he is always there. Temptations, challenges and blessings in which Jahweh/Immanuel God places humans is presented in Chapter eight.
"Immanuel! God Is Still With Us!" is not a story book, nor is it a classroom text book in the true sense of the word. The treatise is a study guide to pilot the reader into a further understanding of the Bible Jahweh/Immanuel God, and his plan for our lives. immanuel! god is still with us is the third book writer Hoh has produced. The work is easily read. Presented in scholarly, laymen writing style the book is filled with biblical references.
Writer Hoh is a technical writer who lives in Milwaukee. He attended Lutheran seminaries assists in the ministry of his local congregation. "Immanuel! God Is Still With Us!" is a well written edition in which writer Hoh deftly paints a keenly focused portrait of Jahweh/Immanuel God through carefully set out chapters. Thought provoking material relating to Jahweh/Immanuel God; his purpose, plan and place in our lives is presented with skill and understanding. It is obvious writer Hoh has completed more than a little study into his subject. Writing presented is to the point, comprehendible and highly lucid. I particularly enjoyed reading the authors understanding that Jahweh/Immanuel God has promised to not tempt any of us more than we can bear. Chapter 8 of the book offers the reader great hope during times of difficult situation, challenges or struggles we must overcome. Hoh offers that Jahweh/Immanuel God does not prevent challenge or struggle in the life of humans, however he does offer guidance and strength to face those challenges or struggles.
My only suggestion for improvement would be a larger type. Many of us who have reached ‘the delicate years’, words are those of my optometrist would benefit from larger type and would enjoy reading the work more were the print a tad larger.
Good book for the home, lay church leader and pastor library shelf.
Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend.
