A wonderful book by Jarrett Stephens. He gives great examples of how God is always there and with us, no matter what. God is always pursuing us. The last chapter is my personal favorite.

Jarrett Stephens is used to preaching to thousands, yet while reading this book, it seems as if he's talking directly to you, one on one. And that's sort of the message of the book - though God is able to see and follow everyone and everything in the world and cosmos, He is always for you, with you, and in you, one-on-one. You are infinitely important to Him, and He is always caring for you, working for you, preparing the best for you.

I found this book especially good when addressing the frailities, flaws and foibles we all deal with such as doubt, fear, and inner turmoil. Well-written, this book is well worth your time.

My sincere thanks to NetGalley and WaterBrook & Multnomah for allowing me access to an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and are freely given.

Jarrett Stephens was the teaching pastor at my church for years. I always enjoyed listening to him preach because the passion he had for diving deep into the scriptures. I was one that was constantly taking notes because he gave so much great insight to the passages he was reading. 
His passion also comes out in this book as well. It is broken up into three sections: Always Here, Always Working and Always Faithful. He truly wants the readers to know God’s presence in our lives. 

This is a great book to add to any Christian’s library. Will be purchasing when published.

The Always God
He Hasn't Changed and You Are Not Forgotten

I am reviewing The Always God through Waterbrook and Multnomah and Netgalley:

We live in a time where we are getting a rising sense of turmoil in our lives as well as in the world.  The loss and disappointment we so often feel whether because of an unexpected diagnosis, a desperate search for a job, or our concern for the future of those we love.

When we are experiencing those soul crushing “Why is this happening?” moments  we can often feel abandoned.  We begin to wonder if God has given up on us , is he no longer responding, has he left us alone?

The author Pastor Jarrett Stephens understands.  He’s battled his own doubt and frustration and has walked with others through their struggles and anxieties. 

The author has discovered some really good news through his experience and the experience of others.  Even when we don’t understand what God is doing, he is always at work, pursuing the lost restoring the broken, calming the anxious, comforting the lonely, helping the angry, encouraging the fearful, and forgiving the guilty. 

The Always God invites us to quiet ourselves and listen to the God who does not change or forget us. Not ever. And that truth changes everything.

I give The Always God five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!

In "The Always God", Jarrett Stephens wants his readers to understand and be convinced of God's omnipresence. He splits his book into three parts: Always Here, Always Working, and Always Faithful. I specifically enjoyed the portions of the book that were about comforting the anxious and fearful.  I thought this book was good, and would be a good resource to add to a Christian's library.

Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC. All opinions are my own.
