Legion: Rediscovering the God Who Rescues Me (Bible Study) (Behind the Scene: Exploring the Bible's Unsung Heroes) By Shadia Hrichi

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogging Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own. 


Book Description:  

How far will Jesus go to rescue one lost soul? Tormented, chained, and living in a graveyard, the man known only by the name of the demons that tormented him had no one to help him no one to intercede for him. So Jesus goes Himself. Climb into the boat with Jesus as He heads into enemy territory. Witness Jesus's power and passion as He battles violent storms and armies of demons. Through this six-week, action-packed bible study, you will experience God's relentless love as you celebrate your impassioned Savior Who moved heaven and earth to rescue you.

Shadia combines brilliant biblical insights with thought-provoking applications as she unfolds the stirring story of the man known as Legion. Though one of the more obscure individuals to experience Christ's powerful rescuing love, this man's life is destined to become a much-loved Bible story as Shadia leads you into his broken world. I highly recommend this stunning, thorough, unforgettable, hope-filled Bible study experience.



My Thoughts: 

Legion is the latest Bible Study in Shadia Hrichi's series, Behind the Seen: Exploring the Bible's Unsung Heroes, and it is a fantastic read. I had the pleasure of reading the first book, Hagar, so when this opportunity came to read Legion I took it. I absolutely love these Bible Studies. Shadia Hrichi's writing puts you right there with Jesus and the other people, feeling the emotions and love for others. She really enforces the fact that God loves every single one of us and the lengths He will go to for one person. This study centers around a man named Legion, whose story isn't one that is one of the main stories. Shadia Hrichi truly writes a unique study that really touched me and challenged me. I cannot say enough good about this study and this author. I HIGHLY recommend this study for anyone looking for a great Bible Study, you will not be disappointed.  I give this Bible Study 5+ STARS. Please check out more about this study and a give away.

More from Shadia

If there is one universal truth, it is that every human heart longs for paradise. A perfect world without death, pain, or sorrow. A world at peace, where each of us is secure, treasured, and loved. But the reality is that the world as we know it will never deliver; it cannot. Scripture tells us that “the whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). As a result, you and I live in a broken world. A world that has been drifting off course ever since that slippery serpent enticed our first parents to reject God’s authority in that garden paradise so long ago. In that moment, they unwittingly handed over dominion of the earth to Satan on a silver platter. But this then begs the question. Why was God willing to risk rebellion in the Garden? And why would God allow His perfect creation to fall victim to the enemy’s schemes? And if God is good, why does He allow evil to exist? Through this six-week study, you and I will explore the answers to these questions and more as we step into the fascinating story of the man known only by the name of the demons that tormented him. To be honest, I don’t know why I am attracted to the hard stories in the Bible. The messy stories. I suspect it stems, in part, from my own broken past. I can relate much easier to the broken people. The ones who experienced times when they felt unseen, or unloved, or unwanted. At the same time, their stories captivate my heart because when God reveals what He is doing behind the seen, His power and glory are displayed in ways that make my spirit soar! So I invite you to come with me as we climb into the boat with Jesus and head into enemy territory. We will witness Jesus’s power and passion as He battles violent storms and armies of demons in order to rescue . . . one . . . lost . . . soul. Tormented, chained, and living in a graveyard, the man had no one to help him. No one to intercede for him. No one but Jesus. As a result:
  • A demoniac becomes a disciple.
  • A house of demons becomes a dwelling for the Living God.
  • The chained becomes a champion of good news.
You and I live in a world crying out for rescue. And just as Jesus was willing to cross the sea and rescue one man from the enemy’s chains, He crossed the heavens to rescue you and me from a fate even worse: eternal chains. But praise God that through His sacrifice for sin, Jesus conquered all the forces of evil and opened up the gates of paradise to all who embrace His mercy. So come with me. Let’s rediscover the God Who Rescues Me! “For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son.” —Colossians 1:13 NASB
