Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased and honored to write a review on John Sheasby’s “At Home in the Father’s House: Where I Belong as a Child of the King”. This is one of those volumes where the material hits the reader right between the eyes with Truth.
In the Kingdom, there are Sonship and Servanthood. In Biblical times, individuals received their blessings in two distinct ways. They received them as the blessings were “earned” or when the blessings were “inherited”. Through relationship as with a blood heir, or through transaction, as through a hired hand or servant.
Using distinct Biblical examples, author Sheasby opens his heart to engage the reader to open his heart and eyes to the magnificent blessings that are available through a familial relationship with the King of Kings. Repeated examples, both from the author’s life and through clear biblical illustrations, Sheasby endeavors to show us what we miss if our relationship with God is not up to its potential. These illustrations become obvious as the reader meditates on the content of this fine book.
I am always happy and willing to discuss book content and story lines. I try to avoid getting too “chatty” during a book review, as I want to let the potential reader of this book to experience the same kind of revelation as I did upon reading the book. In that regard, therefore, I offer my complete and total recommendation of this book to you, the reader. I want you to engage with Pastor Sheasby in a “spoiler-free” experience. And I hope that the reader’s experience is similar to my own, as your heart and mind are confronted by a new way of looking at where we belong as children, rather than servants, of the King.
As a result, I give this volume 5 big gold stars, and back that with my heartiest recommendation as a book that will serve you unexpected blessings from completely new perspectives. This is one of those books that sneak into the scene and then suddenly break out as readers grasp the weight and truth of the message. And this is a message of Truth, Victory, and Abundant Blessing!
I received a copy of this book as an Advanced Reader’s Copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest and timely review. There are no other connections or expectations between myself, the publisher or the author. This review will be included on Goodreads.com, Amazon.com, my blog: jonreviewsbooks1.wordpress.com, and other social media sites.
