Finding God in the Bible: What Crazy Prophets, Fickle Followers and Dangerous Outlaws Reveal about Friendship with God By Darren Wilson Book Review

Finding God in the Bible was written to educate readers on numerous different Biblical stories that can be a little challenging to grasp the whole truth found in them. Darren Wilson also shared how he ran from God’s calling on His life like Moses and he avoided the stirring in his heart. Darren was a professor of writing and he knew God had declared that he was the one who needed to be a filmmaker and produce a movie entitled, Finger of God. He revealed how God opened supernatural doors in filming this amazing film that was very eye-opening. He explored the story of creation, Adam and Eve, Moses, Elisha, David, Saul, Joseph, and so many more.


One of my favorite chapters was the story of Joseph and how even though his brothers had evil motives in getting rid of their brother and selling him as a slave. God had an even bigger plan for his life and he wasn’t done with him just yet. Joseph’s destiny couldn’t have been fulfilled if his brother’s hadn’t committed such a horrible crime against him and the wrong accusations made by Potiphar’s wife lead him into helping his brother’s when a famine hit. God turned evil into good! This is only one example of what this book will teach you.


I would recommend this awe-inspiring book on the faithfulness of God and the miraculous leading God has had in people’s lives. This book taught me a great deal about how God wants an intimate relationship with His beloved children and it’s evident in the truths offered in scriptures. This book was astonishing in the overall content and I liked how Darren was very real about his avoidance of making a film about how much God loves us and how he wants a true friendship with us. I immensely realized in reading this book that I need to focus more on building my intimate friendship with my loving Creator. I highly recommend this book if you’re struggling in your relationship with God, this will get you back on the right track! I would also highly suggest this book for new believers because it will help educate them in the direction for their life!
