Review - Waiting Here for You by Louie Giglio

My Copy of the Book

Year Published: 2015
Genre: Religious; Non-Fiction

Waiting Here for You helps us anticipate rather than dread the busy season of Advent and Christmas.
Life is full of waiting – we can’t escape it. We find ourselves in the middle of it every day – waiting on a prognosis to be given…a verdict to be reached…a promotion to be announced. And in these seasons of waiting that anxiety, desperation and hopelessness creep in.
Waiting Here For You takes us through the advent – the season of waiting. In it we see the story of the coming of Jesus. It teaches us that waiting is the means God often uses to carry his plans in our lives. And it brings us back to the truth that our waiting is never wasted when we are waiting on God.
Join pastor and author Louie Giglio and take hold of the chance to uncover the vast hope offered through the journey of Advent.  Find peace and encouragement for your soul as anticipation leads toward celebration!
Waiting is not wasted when it is waiting with the Lord.

My Take on the Book:
I thought that this was a very nice, quiet book with which to get into the Christmas season. It starts at near the end of November, and takes you up until the 24th of December, with a nice introduction and ending. I ended up giving this leisurely book a four star rating.

Last Word:
This is the first religious book that I've read in a while, and definitely the first book from this particular author, though I have watched two sermons from him before. Having said that, it is highly likely that I will be reading more books from Louie Giglio.
