REVIEW: 41 Will Come: Holding on When Life Gets Tough—and Standing Strong Until a New Day Dawns by Chuck E. Tate
I liked the premise of the book about how 41 is a declaration of faith that things will finally come and be fulfilled. The author bases this idea on the biblical significance of the number 40. It is a number found all throughout Scripture.
For example in Scripture:
--It rained for 40 days and 40 nights
--The Israelites wandered for 40 year
--Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights
But the author proposes maybe even a more significant number is the one that comes next: 41. This is the number that represents a new day and a new hope.
While I enjoyed the notion of the book, and it was a new thought I hadn’t had before, the book seemed just a bit too lackadaisical for me. It felt as if it was just the author's sermons sewn together. However, the book’s overall thought is worth considering and the appendix of the author’s 50 favorite “40 verses” is a nice touch.
If you would like to read the book for yourself, I have a free copy I am giving away. Just make a comment below to be entered by August 31, 2016. The winner will then be drawn at random.
