Is God’s Alarm Clock About to Go Off?–A review of Dr. David Jeremiah’s “Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World”


It took a couple of chapters before I finally got interested because it wasn’t like most of Dr. Jeremiah’s books.   Well read in current events and behind-the-scenes action in the world, he delivers a textbook of how to react to the chaos swirling around us and the turmoil yet to come.  His main concern is that the church (as a whole) and believers, in particular, need to wake up to what’s going on around us.  We need to prepare ourselves now for the persecution that lies ahead.  Make up your mind now, he advises, before you are confronted.  Know what you will stand for and be prepared for the fall-out.

This is an eye-opener.  We know we are to be prepared for Christ’s Second Coming, but now Dr. Jeremiah tells us how.  Each chapter identifies what we need to do to be prepared for the rest of our lives on earth and the rest of eternity in heaven.  This is a concise how-to book that tells it like it is.  It is also written for believers and non-believers.  The one quote that stands out which is the theme for the book is, “The love of God is the one thing that can and will turn this world upside down. Let’s get to work.”

I recommend everyone who is concerned about their future and the future of the world read this book.  I think it will comfort believers and give us hope.  It will also spur you on to evangelism with compassion.
