Title: He Who Has an Ear
Author: Laura J. Davis

Note: I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from www.bookfun.org
The author’s focus is solely on the seven letters that are written by John while on the island of Patmos and recorded in the book of Revelation in the Bible. I thought this a wise move as there was so much there just in that section of Scripture for Laura to share the insights in a well-developed format. I found that her love for the Word and inductive study is exactly what I have loved for years, and since then, other studies tend not to be as rich when not inductive.
The author shares in a very direct manner what is and is not in these seven letters along with what her research revealed. Then, towards the end, Laura helps readers see how we can apply what the Word says to our lives today. Sometimes I would read a section quietly then share it with my husband which led to some great talks between us. This is one book to sit down and just read and think about what is presented, and then put it in your personal library for future reference.
Always keep your Bible close along with a highlighter or pencil to write anything the Lord may prompt you to mark as you read. One of the author’s admonitions throughout the book is to never take anyone’s word for what the Bible says, but to check it out for ourselves. This is very wise counsel which if readers will practice can protect them from falling into teachings that aren’t biblical.
I recommend buying copies to pass out and share with people as you study from your Bible just the seven letters written in the early chapters of Revelation. The book contains ideas that will challenge heart, minds and souls and will make studying the topic challenging yet fruitful if applied to living daily to please Him!
My rating is 5 stars.
