Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. Although this is not a weekly feature on this blog, I am always happy to share any book(s) I am anticipating it’s release.
Today I am anticipating to read a book by Jackie Hill Perry. Her book, ‘Gay Girl, Good God‘ is one of my best reads of 2021 and I am excited that she has another book coming out in a couple of months. I am looking forward to reading it and I hope it would be a blessing to me as the first book was because I have somewhat high hopes.
The book is titled:
Holier Than Thou: How God’s Holiness Helps Us Trust Him
Why is it so hard to trust God sometimes?
We say we trust Him with our mouths, but often not with our lives. We live like God can’t be trusted. Like He doesn’t actually want what is best for us. Like He is just another person who, as Eve assumed in the Garden all those years ago, might hold out on us.
Bestselling author Jackie Hill Perry, in her much anticipated follow-up to Gay Girl, Good God, helps us find the reason we don’t trust God—we misunderstand His holiness.
In Holier Than Thou, Jackie walks us through Scripture, shaking the dust off of “holy” as we’ve come to know it and revealing it for what it really is. In these pages, we will see that God is not like us. He is different. He is holy. And that’s exactly what makes Him trustworthy. As it turns out, God being “holier than thou” is actually the best news in the world, and it’s the key to trusting Him.
Expected publication: August 17th 2021 by B Books
