The Call by Matthew J. Romano
An Invitation to Revival and Transformation
(Ambassador International 2018)
"The atmosphere within the United States and most of the world is ripe for another great spiritual awakening."
This book is design to deepen your walk with God, to don your armor, and to prepare you and teach you to be alert to the tactics used by Satan.
There were many passages I bookmarked for later referencing.
Matthew Romano isn't shy about calling out those who preach false doctrine, such as one losing his/her salvation. Or even how the world's view of mediation is exact opposite of biblical mediation.
Also in this book, a person learns more about idols in life and how to tear down those idols and put God first in all things.
Unlike many books on the same subject, this isn't a book that preaches or list biblical references. No. Matthew Romano speaks from experience, guiding the reader through his own life and spiritual growth, and how came to the truth.
Each chapter ends in a "think about it" question. Some of these are still unanswered by me as I struggle to comprehend where I am spiritually. Some I can answer with certainty.
One of the best questions asked: "How can you use the sword [the Bible] of the Spirit to defeat your giant? Are your words to people reckless or do they bring encouragement and healing to others?" (My words in brackets.)
The Call will leave the reader hungry for God's Word and quietly introspective about his/her spiritual growth.
We don't need self-help books or dry theological preachiness.
What we need are more books like The Call. Honest, transparent, and written in a loving spirit to help someone become a spiritual warrior in a fallen world.
