The River of God book by Russell Stendall review

The River of God by Russell M. Stendall

In The River of God, author Russell M. Stendall begins with describing the river in the garden of Eden. The book moves on from there through the Bible and culminates in Revelation. The author wanted to give to the reader a sense of peace which only comes from the River of God, salvation. As true Christians know from experience, the only true peace and satistaction comes from God. 
I am impressed by the author's life long commitment as a missionary to Columbia. I was eager to read his book, yet I found it very difficult to get through. I continued reading with patience and an open mind but I just simply wasn't touched by this book. I found the point of the book hard to decipher. 
I will return to this book after a while and will update my review if my opinion changes in the future. 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion of it. 

More about the book:
This world is in a state of constant unrest, but we must not be distracted from what God is doing now and in the future. God is patient, but soon He will restore His chosen people to a right relationship with Him, though this comes at a cost. All humanity will be affected. Your world will be changed in unprecedented ways and drinking from the River of God is the only answer. The River of God opens with the river in the Garden of Eden, defines God's plans through biblical prophecy, numerology, and typology, and culminates in Revelation with the pure river of life proceeding from the throne of God for His people. Are you ready to stand firm during the coming tumultuous times? Discover your strength in the waters that flow from the River of God
