The Person: I, Wisdom is a compelling Christian nonfiction book by Ian Heard. With its thought-provoking narrative, the book delves into eighteen chapters that adopt the perspective of the Wisdom of God. The theme of the book revolves around God's intervention in the affairs of humanity to bring about their salvation through his Wisdom.
From the outset, the book captivates readers as Wisdom boldly proclaims himself God's voice, recounting the genesis of existence itself. Wisdom explains the exalted status of humanity as the greatest of God's creations, whose creation is motivated by the profound love that God has for them. Yet, this amazing narrative took a turn when Adam's susceptibility to the allure of the first unwise one led to his exit from Eden. The book serves as an enlightening guide to the nature of human existence in the construct of time, emphasising the significance of trusting God, who is outside of time and, as such, sees the bigger picture. It unravels, with insightful detail, the intricate tapestry of God's redemptive plan for humanity, orchestrated through the agency of Wisdom himself.
This book has a lot of wonderful qualities that I appreciate. The language used is simple and easy to understand, which I found quite nice. Even though the author included many Hebrew names and words, he took the time to explain them in the text and footnotes, which was really helpful. The book does a great job of shedding light on complex ideas like why we exist, how time works, and the significance of the Word of God. What's impressive is that the author always stays connected to the Bible, starting each chapter with reference to it. As I read, I gained a deep understanding of God's wisdom, and it provided me with hope as a Christian. It's obvious that the author put a lot of thought into this book, and it's incredibly insightful. The way it's written, it's like a powerful guide that brings you closer to understanding God's wisdom and its role in our lives. Overall, I found it to be a truly impactful and thought-provoking book.
I found nothing to dislike about this book, as It captivated me with its unique perspective on the gospel. I did not find any errors in this book. It was exceptionally well edited. Therefore, I rate this book five out of five stars. The book was an insightful read, deserving of its rating because of the positive aspects already stated. There was no reason to deduct any stars from my rating. I highly recommend this book to Christians, particularly those whose faith may have been shaken.
