Review of ENCOURAGEMENT Adrenaline for the Soul

encourage adrenaline cover

by Robert Dale

In addition to reprinting the classic Reformed books of the past, Reformation Heritage Books (RHB) are also publishing good contemporary literature.

Mark Chanski has been a pastor at Harbor Reformed Baptist Church, Holland, Michigan since 1994.  He writes here with a true pastor’s heart of the need for Christians to encourage one another.  This is rooted in Scripture – not only the obvious texts, but also many others that may have escaped your attention previously.  (The Scripture index contains 278 references).

In addition to Biblical examples, there are many historical and contemporary illustrations.  British readers may be bewildered at times by references to American sports, but the main thrust is always clear!

His running theme is that encouragement works like adrenaline, giving renewed energy to those who are growing weary and discouraged.

For balance, there is a chapter also on Biblical correction: he is not suggesting, by any means, that we must only ever say nice things to one another, simply that we could all do more to strengthen one another by expressing our appreciation and approval of one another – a much needed emphasis in these difficult days.

This is a very practical book that will make you want to go out and find someone to encourage.
