I received this book from Blogging for Books for reviewing. All opinions are my own.
The crucifixion of Jesus is a story many know. We know how it ends and we know how He resurrects. It’s a pivotal point in our Christian faith. Steven Furtick goes through this story in a different approach in Seven-Mile Miracle. He goes on to explain the last seven things Jesus said and how important they are to our lives.
There are seven phrases Jesus says during His last moments. They all represent different struggles and purposes that deal with things we encounter in life. Furtick explains how Jesus said specific phrases with purpose, containing deeper meanings than what we think.
At first it seems like a theological type of book where you just look at Jesus crucifixion and what it represented. Through each mile, Furtick encourages you to do some soul searching. It’s not just about what Jesus said, but how it applies to life now. It gives a perfect basis of what the crucifixion meant and how we can learn from it.
Overall, I felt like this was a much faster read compared to his other books, but it was still great nonetheless. It’s refreshing to hear more about Jesus’ last moments from a different view, than just a reiteration of what we already know. Plus, copies have a reading plan that you can start leading up to Easter. It’s a great read if you want to learn more about what Easter is and if you need some encouragement. Seven-Mile Miracle highlights Jesus’ sacrifice and what a gift it is to us.
