Unquenchable by Carol Kent
Unquenchable: Grow A Wildfire Faith That Will Endure Anything by Carol Kent was a wonderful and interesting book, although different than what I expected. I was expecting more of a how-to book and instead, this is a book of a collection of a lot of stories of women who have gone through the firestorms of life and come out with a wildfire faith. These women are open and honest about their lives and their stories are heart-wrenching. Carol's son is serving a life sentence for first-degree murder so she certainly knows about firestorms.
Carol uses several examples of fire in the book such as wildfires, firestorms, burning bushes, glowing embers and the Refiner's fire to show different stages of our faith. I like that at the end of each chapter she has questions and a fire-building challenge for further study.
I really enjoyed Carol's book and the fact she points out that God can (and is) using the most painful stories to be lights in the darkness and lead others to Jesus.
