When it comes to faith, we all know that praying about it, talking about it and living it out can be completely different things. 

In her latest book-cum-devotional, Faith In The Making, British Salvationist Lyndall Bywater effortlessly connects these three facets of faith, going through the ‘Heroes of the Faith’ from Hebrews 11 to see what we can learn about these everyday people who lived extraordinary lives.

Ranging from a study on Cain and Abel through to Daniel, the 12 studies are easily digestible in personal or corporate devotional time, but that doesn’t mean they lack spiritual depth.

As Lyndall dives into the nuances of each hero, referring back to their original stories and unpacking their flaws and victories, you come out with a fuller understanding of God’s relationship with humanity and his love for you.

The reason this study is so relatable is because Lyndall includes just enough of her own story and reflection of these heroes to make each challenge legitimate.

Most notably, when she discerns the promises of God in relation to the Promised Land, she invites us into her struggle with infertility.

Action points are also included within each chapter, showing us how to talk, live and pray out a heroic faith that God calls us to.

With a foreword by Danielle Strickland, this is an excellent devotional.
