Experiencing Father's Embrace By Jack Frost

The heart warming Christian book called Experiencing Father’s Embrace by Jack Frost is a moving and inspiring testimony of one remarkable family man who was a former sea captain and enjoyed fishing.

He was also an author, Bible teacher and an ordained pastor of evangelism who touched the hearts and minds of people throughout the world. Jack and his wife Trisha were also founders of Shiloh Place Ministries, but sadly he passed away after an uphill struggle with cancer on March 5, 2007, aged 54.

I loved reading this book and found it not only encouraging but easy to understand. It tackled a deep subject but was presented in a well written, simplistic and to the point way; in an area not everyone at first may fully experience in their own life but through having read the book may understand better, and most will likely see that certain issues are raised within their own lives as individual readers. It speaks to the heart!

The testimony helps to bring light to areas from your life that may be holding you back from experiencing the love of our Heavenly Father.

Jack is open and honest about his insecurities and the struggles he has experienced. He shares lessons learned and how important making God the center of your life is. He also talks about the importance of having balance between ministry and family life.

I find his story unique and interesting as Jack came from a background of addictions like drugs, alcohol, pornography and reveals how the amazing power of God’s unconditional love and grace set him free. The book speaks about issues connected with fathers and also touches upon mother issues. The desires he once had were exchanged for the desire to help heal a broken world.

I am sure the lessons learned gained Jack profound wisdom and insight, and as this is shared with others it will continue to speak to many hearts, myself included.

I would very much recommend this book to everyone. I would give it a 5 out of 5 rating.
