Taking God at His Word by Kevin DeYoung

After reading and loving his previous book, I decided that I needed to read more of Kevin DeYoung's books.  When I saw that this one was available for review it jumped to the top of my to be read stack.  Like many people, I have certain authors that I pick up and read everything they write.  Included in that group is Philip Yancey and Max Lucado.  Now Kevin DeYoung has joined the list of my favorite authors.

DeYoung's award winning previous book, "Crazy Busy", was very good and I found this to be another good book.  The author has a gift for reminding us of the basics of our Christian faith.  In "Crazy Busy", he helped the reader to remember that Satan can use every thing (work, family, hobbies, even the church) to keep us busy and distracted from our walk with the Lord.  "Taking God at His Word" is a great book for a young Christian to see what God's word really means.  And it is a good reminder for long time Christians to keep us focused on the truth of God's word. 

Read this book and fall in love with God's word all over again.
