When God Says Go, written by Elizabeth Laing Thompson, is a book dealing with women’s issues and spiritual growth. The author tells the story of people in the Bible who were called by God to do His will, to help the reader to choose to “go” when God calls. The books has 12 chapters that consist of a stories of people in the Bible such as Moses, Mary Magdalene, Esther, Samuel, Peter and Mary the mother of Jesus. The author also uses personal experiences and Bible verses. Each chapter ends with a discussion session, “Let’s go deeper”, which include reading recommendations for further study as well as items for consider for journaling and prayer.
This would be a great book for a Bible Study or discussion group. I like how the author tells the story of the people from the Bible and with their reactions to being called to do God’s work. The things that stands out the most for me in this book is that when God calls us, it is not about us, it is about God. When He calls us, He wants our all. Another thing that stands out for me is that we do not get to choose when changes will come into our lives, but we do get to choose how we respond.
