Nichole Nordeman is a Christian singer/song writer, lyricist and recording artist for Sparrow Records/EMI Christian Music Group. She can now add “writer” to that long list of achievements. “Love Story” – the hand that holds us from the garden to the gate is her first book.
In her book Nichole displays her deep understanding of Scripture as she connects God’s people of old to His people in the 21st century. “Love Story” is a reflection on the journey of mankind from the beginning of time until the end of time when Jesus will come in glory to take His believers home.
She brings Scripture to life and leads the reader to see that the life struggles of Adam and Eve, Ruth, Queen Esther, King David, Daniel, the Apostle Paul and others are not so very different from the struggles that Christians face in the 21st century. She puts us in their place and makes us realize that hindsight is always 100%. We see also how truly blessed we are to have God’s written Word as a reference and a guide for our lives – something the early Christians did not have.
This book is a reminder that God’s Word is indeed still living and active (Hebrews 4:12). It is still at work among His believers offering strength for each day and hope for tomorrow.
If you are struggling with sin and temptation – if you are feeling lost and alone and thinking you can never be good enough for a holy God, this book is a “must read” for you. You will see that others past and present, suffer from, and fall prey to many of the same temptations that you do. You will see that in Jesus you are the forgiven child of a loving and merciful God.
“Love Story”- The hand that holds us from the garden to the gate would be a wonderful book for a Christian book study. It will make you smile and it may make you cry, but in the end you will be truly blessed.
