“Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World” by David Jeremiah

I grew up with the notion that you never talk about politics or religion with other people because beliefs are different, you cannot change their beliefs, and you always end up in a never-ending argument (at least that’s what happened the few times someone bought up religion with me). Dr. Jeremiah wrote quite the opposite. He wrote about politics AND religion together! He says in this book that “people don’t always appreciate having the gospel preached to them, but that’s our work, and it is the greatest evidence of our love.” “Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World” is a follow-up book to “What in the World is Going On?” I have to admit that I did not read the first book and do not know if reading the first book would influence my opinion on this book.

This book focuses on Christianity and refers to the New Testament. Dr. Jeremiah believes that based on the New Testament there are ten practical strategies to help us live with confidence in this chaotic world of politics and religion.

Ten instructions for living life while we are looking for the Savior:

1.) Stay Calm

2.) Stay Compassionate

3.) Stay Constructive

4.) Stay Challenged

5.) Stay Connected

6.) Stay Centered

7.) Stay Confident

8.) Stay Consistent

9.) Stay Committed

10.) Stay Convinced

These chapters which explain the instructions are about what on Earth we should be doing in a time like this based on passages about the return of Christ.

  1. Have faith? Faith in what, exactly?

    You couldn’t even make it through a book about faith…real deal faith. A book which contains the real answers. You could just read the conclusion if you don’t want to read the rest.

    • I would hardly call this book “real deal faith.” It is an old man who rambled on and on. And I didn’t need to read the entire book. Each chapter was an explaination of the 10 strategies that I listed above. Anyone with any common sense, faith or no faith, can understand what they mean. And at least I made it through half the book instead of just reading the conclusion…which by the way, there isn’t one. Have faith in what you ask? Even I know, and I am not religious at all but respect others, that you have faith that Jesus Christ will return. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and recieve you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:3)
