Review – 40 Verses to Ignite Your Faith: Surprising Insights from Unexpected Passages by Laurie Polich Short

Ignite Faith

I have enjoyed adding these devotions to my daily Bible reading. It was very interesting to see which verses the author of this study chose to dig into. I also found myself surprised at times to see what she drew out of the verses and how I had not connected them with certain topics that she had. These devotions definitely made me think and study the settings that each verse was in, so that I could understand them in context. I think that this book could be a good addition to Bible study for both men and women.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Ignite FaithMany of us have our “go to” verses. The ones we memorize, post on social media, and hang on our walls. But sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in–something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.

In this powerful, accessible new book, author and speaker Laurie Short mines the Scriptures, revealing insights and promises from 40 verses we often overlook. Digging in to these “in between” verses, she unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help you seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways. From trusting God’s timing, to not worrying about the future, to holding on to faith when things look dark, the hidden insights found in these verses will help you navigate the challenges that cross your path, breathe new life into your weary soul, and ignite your faith once again.
