Book Review: Priceless Stones by James Revoir

No one just happens across priceless stones. Priceless stones are raw and buried. They must be mined, cleaned, and polished. It’s the best metaphor for my criticism of Mr. Revoir’s book. There are some priceless stones of incredible information in this book. It is evident that the author is very intelligent. However, I had difficulty mining the gems from this work.

It is difficult for me to be critical of anyone who has written a book because I have never undertaken the task. However, it is as a reader and not a fellow-author that I offer my personal review. While I found some of the content of the book, specifically the insights into the Hebrew words, to be very interesting, I found myself struggling to engage with the book.

The book is written, almost in a devotional format. The subtitle is “42 Days of Hebrew Promises for Kingdom Living.” In each chapter, Revoir focuses on a different Hebrew word or phrase and draws present application from the meaning of these ancient words. Each chapter concludes with a prayer, a declaration, and reflective questions.

I would personally rate this book two of five stars. However, if you are looking for a devotional style book and you love to study the Hebrew meaning of words, perhaps you should give it a try. It is my hope that Mr. Revoir continues to spread the Christian faith by every means possible.

Disclosure of Material: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookCrash.com book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s CFR Title 16, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
