Book Review: Oh God, Please Help me With my Doubt by Leighann McCoy

Help Me With My Doubt: Welcome to Oh God, Please Help Me with My Doubt. The book you’re holding in your hands will help you capture and subdue the voice of doubt, whose goal is to eat away at your faith until nothing is left but bitterness and disillusionment. In the first section of this book, you will learn to recognize God’s voice. You will develop the ability to hear Him when He responds to your prayers. Then you will learn what to do when God doesn’t respond, when you are faced with His silence. While wrestling with the silence of God, you will discover five keys you can use to delete doubt from your prayer life. Then you will visit with the Israelites as they camped on the out- skirts of the Promised Land and see what occurred when God’s people applied or did not apply these keys to their lives. Then before this book comes to an end you will examine several doubts one at a time. Together we will define, dissect, and then defeat each one. My prayer is that by the time you complete this book you will have experienced God’s removal of most, if not all, of the doubts that infect your prayers.
Unfortunately, this book was not helpful to me.  Every Christian wrestles with doubt at one time or another... or possibly all the time.  So, I was looking forward to this book giving me good insight into the problem.  It didn't happen.

The book's synopsis claims you will learn to recognize God's voice, to be able to hear Him when He responds to your prayers.  The author's theories and explanations did nothing to help in these areas.  She also seemed to lean a lot on quotes and ideas from other authors.

If you're looking for a book to help with your prayer life and your doubts, I'd have to recommend you try a different book.

Thanks to Netgalley and Worthy Publishing for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book 2 Bookworms.
