What would life be like without the influence of Christianity? Would we know we were pitiful wretches living without even the hope of …hope. Revisionist history aside, our country was founded on Christian principles. Laws, created for the safety and betterment of society, were based basic Biblical ideas and are meant to serve all our citizens whether or not they claim faith in Christ. But if the laws you live by have no real moral basis, then there is no hope of justice, equality, of a better life.

I have been reading His Mighty Warrior with my five and three year old sons for the past couple of weeks. My five year old definitely responds more to the lessons than his younger brother does. However, they both ask for me to read this to them when they get up in the morning—a good sign for a children’s book. My older son will periodically ask, “Who are we, Mommy?” When I tell him he is a mighty warrior for God, his face lights up!

Do you remember the song that starts out, “Grace, grace, God’s grace. Grace that will pardon and cleanse within..”. This book reminds me of that song. The main characters in this book are all in need of grace or need to extend grace to others (just like real life). The drama unfolds as the people in the story deal with finding the grace they need to live their lives.

The book is very quiet. I do not know how else to explain it. When I am reading it, my voice is whispering even when I am not reading aloud. But I guess that is good considering the reason this book is written for. I would recommend this book if you intend to use it as a retreat tool. However, if you are looking for a Bible study, you should check into some of Jan Johnson’s other works.

Starting with the "all good people go to heaven" belief, Mr. Stanley breaks it do to see the problems with this line of reasoning.
The last part of the book exlplins why Mr. Stanley, and we as Christians, believe that good people do not go to heaven, but forgiven people do.
This book is easy to read. I know many churches and individuals give this book to those who are seeking their way to heaven. It is a good starting point if the person you are giving it to can acknowledge there is a God, heaven, and hell. This is not a book trying to convince a person of the existence of God.

I couldn't help comparing this book to another devotional book I have been reading. That particular book is a collection of stories with a short Bible verse tacked on to the end. "90 Days" is not that kind of devotional book. Each section starts off with a good portion of Scripture; just reading this gives you peace in your heart. Following this is a related passage, sometimes from the author's life, most times from others who have faced some sort of adversity in their lives. Romans 8:28 NIV, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." This verse is mention frequently and seems to be the underlying theme of the book. All passages affirm god's goodness and His love for us. the author often reminds us we are never alone in our suffering and to remember the suffering of Christ on our behalf.
This book was provided by Waterbrook Multnomah in exchnge for a fair and unbiased review.
