For Those in Need of Hope and Encouragement
Grace Revealed is an inspirational book especially for those in need of encouragement when going through times of crisis such as death of a loved one, addiction, family problems, or career problems to name a few. It is divided into chapters for each topic, has personal stories of others who had dealt with that same situation and how they got through it. Each chapter offers some scriptures pertaining to the topic which could be of some comfort, and many chapters end with a prayer pertaining to the topic. I think it would be a wonderful resource for a person dealing with one of those issues, as often when we are going through something, we feel so alone and isolated, and reading the accounts of others can help to bring some much needed soothing relief and encouragement. I enjoyed reading the book, and found inspiration in reading how others hit a rough patch, and felt so bleak, but made it through and now find fulfillment in helping others. I received this book from the publisher and author in exchange for an honest review– thank you!
Fred Sievert started his career as a teacher, later entered the insurance business, and retired early—in 2007—as president of New York Life Insurance Company, a Fortune 100 corporation. Feeling he had woefully neglected his spiritual education and development, Fred enrolled in Yale Divinity School where he was awarded a master’s degree in religion in May 2011. His passion is to impact other lives and, to that end, he writes, teaches business school courses on strategy and leadership, and serves on the boards of five nonprofit organizations and two for-profit corporations. He also mentors young executives and speaks frequently to church and corporate leaders on the topic of business and spirituality.
Though Fred was not raised in a strong worshipping Christian family, he found God through various life experiences that started in adolescence. It was this foundation that guided, and often moderated, his aggressive pursuit of business success and the American Dream. The power of the stories on his website Godrevealed.com and the extent to which God was with Fred throughout his young life and business career only became fully apparent to him after retirement, as he reflected on his life, his family, and his personal successes. His stories have been published in numerous printed and electronic periodicals attracting an audience of hundreds of thousands of readers, many of whom in turn have shared their own realizations, triggered by the work.
