6 Verses

Joe Barnett's book, "6 Verses That Can Change Your Life", focuses on six attributes that are deemed to be essential - attributes such as joy, assurance, peace, and trust. Each attribute has its own section of the book, and each section is broken down into smaller chapters that offer personal stories, historical and Biblical references, and explanations from Barnett. The last page of each section is essentially a meditation of what you can resolve to do in order to implement the principles from that section.

I liked the premise of this book. When you truly break down the faith of a Christian to its most basic foundation, you will find those six principles. This book offers wisdom and guidance in developing and expanding our own personal understanding and implementation of these ideals. The historical and Biblical references are useful and relevant to the message, and the book flows well.

I also liked the fact that Barnett included a group discussion guide for each chapter, as well as what he calls, "Individual Action Steps", which are recommendations to further your understanding of the message through Scripture, self evaluation, and actions you can take to reinforce the message of the chapter.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone - I think it would be especially useful for those experiencing a hard time in their life, or those struggling in their own faith. Wonderfully written, and truly resourceful!
