Good Message But Repetitious: The Diamond Life by Tony Scott


Tony Scott uses the analogy of the diamond to show how God shapes each life through the trials that beset all of us. His message is that if we let in the holy spirit we will be able to bear and grow with the trials life sends us. We must trust God to not give us anything we can't bear through our understanding that he is always with us.

This book has an excellent message, but each chapter has basically the same ideas. In one way, this is valuable because it makes those ideas hit home as you read the book. In another way, the repetition can mean that the reader begins skipping through the book looking for new ideas.

I recommend this book if you're searching for your meaning in life and wondering why God sent trials to you. It will give you good ideas for making your life the best it can be by trusting in God and allowing the Holy Spirit into your life.

I reviewed this book for PR by the Book.
