Dr, Wiersbe’s name wasn’t familiar to me – so I looked him up. Dr. Wiersbe was pastor of Moody Church. He has had a very long and distinguished career.
This book came at a time when I really wanted to learn and dig again into an Old Testament book. Be Available hit the spot. A refresher and review over the book of Judges, I also found tidbits of information that were new to me.
The one drawback of this book is that I could tell it was written by someone at least a generation older than myself, male, and probably in the midwest (no lie, that was my guess). Tonight, when I reviewed Dr. Wiersbe’s bio, I was only surprised that he is over 80 and he has written about 150 books. The rest, I was spot on. He does write with a slant for his generation and place in life, but then, we all see through a lens, so our writing is bound to detect it.
Over all, I gave the first 2-3 chapters a 4, and the rest of the book a 3. Good read, lots of great information, and really good questions for conversation.
