90 Days of God’s Goodness by Randy Alcorn

90 Days of God’s Goodness is a book of reminders that God is in control.  The subtitle is, Daily Reflections That Shine Light on Personal Darkness.  What a true statement!  People often think that becoming a Christian means your life will suddenly become hunky-dorey, full of nothing but happiness and joy.  Any Christian who is honest will tell you that is not true.  This book helps people try to cling to God when those mountains, come along that seem impossible to climb & we feel so all alone.

This book tackles the subject most people struggle with, why is there suffering and pain in the world, and how do we get through it?  Each day’s meditation begins with a passage of Scripture, then follows with a discussion of that passage, and how it helps us get through our struggles.  The final portion of the day’s meditation is a prayer relating to the passage of Scripture and the topic for that day.

The only things I would point out is the fact that there is no table of contents.  Since each chapter tackles a different subject it would be nice to have a table of contents, that way the reader could see what day might be most helpful to them at that moment.  The other thing is that the book jacket felt “funny” in a way.  The best way that I can describe it is a parchment feel, which just gave me a funny feeling and sounded odd when I moved my hands while holding it.  I ended up taking the jacket off and it was fine though.  I’m not usually a person who is bothered in any tactile way so I wanted to point this out.

All in all I would recommend this book to anyone.  If you are struggling, going through a rough spot, or just a person (as we will all go through peaks and valleys in our lives), this book will be very helpful.  It would also make a great gift for someone.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group through the Blogging for Books program.   I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
