Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver

Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver is the final book in the trilogy focusing on the Bible story found in John 11:1-12:11. The first two books in the series discussed Mary and Martha. Weaver goes in depth exploring the availability of God's love for us.

Throughout the book Joanna peels back the layers, like an onion, of our relationship with God. At times God saves us from troubling experiences. Other times He uses them in our life to draw us closer to Him. She shows how to transition from head knowledge to heart realization of God's love.

The author challenged the reader to come out of their tomb of existence, to witness and live out the life Christ desires for us. We have the choice to respond like Lazarus, when Jesus called him from the grave. I found this book to be extremely helpful and insightful. I highly recommend it.
