Life rarely goes the way you hope.  But you can take action!

Important secrets to living a successful life are found in the 12 keys in the book of Hebrews.  Bestselling author Derek Prince uncovers these keys and reveals how they will unlock God’s provision and blessing for you.  No matter what situations you are facing, you can step into the successful future God has planned for you.

You are being handed the keys to a better life. Will you use them?

My review:

This is one of those small short books that you pick up and think, I can read this in about an hour.  However, I found that there was so much information in the pages of this book that I wanted to read it leisurely and mull over the ideas that Prince gleaned from the book of Hebrews.

Each chapter has a title that begins with Let Us.  This underscores the idea that we are not to operate under our own efforts, but instead to lean on each other.  I needed to remind myself of that again and again, as I am one who is very independent and has difficulty trusting others.

As this book is based on lessons from the book of Hebrews, there isn’t a lot of new information in it that I haven’t read in other sources.  I’m always a little hesitant to put that in a book review because I am afraid that it sends that message that this book isn’t necessary or helpful.  However, I found the lessons in this book to be good reminders of how we should live.  We should be diligent and growing in maturity and show gratitude.  However, without constant reminders, it is too easy to fall into the trap of complacency.  This book serves as a powerful reminder to keep growing in your faith.

If you are looking for a book that reminds you of all the ways you should be living, this is a great book.  It is a short book, but one that you will want to spend some time with and mull over.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
