Shaken, Not Shattered

February 5, 2010 | 1 Comment

I’ve just completed a review copy of Shaken Not Shattered: Finding the Purpose, Passion, and Power to Stand Firm When Your World Falls Apart by Matthew Hagee, son of Pastor John Hagee. This is a simple book, but it could be useful for group members who are seeing their worlds shaken. And these days, that seems to be about everyone, doesn’t it?

Hagee starts with principle and foundational truths for succeeding in these challenging times, and he encourages his readers to do the same. He says, “Do you want to know why we are shaking as a society? The simple answer is that we have forgotten who we are and what we were designed to be. We have lost touch with all that kept us grounded. We no longer have a sense of certainty about who we are and why we are here.”

He then sets out to set a standard for excellence, perseverance, integrity, character, and diligence in a somewhat systematic step-by-step approach. He challenges the double-mindedness of our era.

He says, “You were created in the express image of God. That’s no small thing. No matter who you are, and regardless of what you are going through, you have nothing to fear. The world around you may be trembling, but nothing in your life needs to shatter.”

If your group members need a bit of stability, this might be a good book to read.
