BORN TO CREATE By Theresa Dedman: A Book Review


This book helps the Christian and the Church to see the important place of creativity. The author demonstrates that because we are made in the image of God, we are born to create. This book is full of practical examples of creativity being used by the Holy Spirit to bring healing to many. The exercises at the end of the chapters are helpful.
There has been a tendency within Charismatic circles to be so heavenly minded to be of no earthly use, this book counters this by showing that by being heavenly minded we can walk in the creativity of our God and Saviour. There has been a need for this type of book for a long time to equip the christian to use all the gifts they have been given for the glory of God and the blessing of others. Perhaps the best way I can commend this book is to say it has affected my own creativity. recently I have taken to writing a blog called Pneuma and Logos ( http://pneumaandlogos.com ), since starting to read this book I  have started to write in a way I have never done before. I wrote a prayer, a very personal one  that can be found under the title O Sovereign Lord. I feel also that I have become more productive and have found the book practically encouraging.
In 1976 I was working at L’abri Fellowship in France when I had a discussion with our students, she said “David if the views of Schaeffer and the other staff of L’Abri were combined with the Charismatic renewal, it would be like dynamite to the church and its impact on the world” why do i retell this story here,simply because because I believe this book helps us move forward in this direction. I feel strongly that if we are to impact the world for Christ we need a Christian world view (F Schaeffer, Abraham Kuyper,Richard Mouw,H.Rookmakker) combined with the Spirit filled emphasis of this book.
This book is an important gift to the body of Christ, buy it, read it, pray over its teaching and then put it into practice. YOU WILL REALISE THAT YOU WERE BORN TO CREATE.

About pneumaandlogos

David Rollings was born in Luton in1949 and raised by my Christian parents in the Gospel Standard Strict Baptist denomination( Hyper-Calvinistic} in the sixties I rebelled against this background and got involved in left-wing politics. I became a Christian in 1969 and soon started reading Francis Schaeffer's books and came to embrace a Christian Worldview. I had the privilege of being on the staff of L'Abti Fellowship from1975 - 1979. After L'abri I studied at London School of Theology where I gained my BA.(1983) A few years later I studied for my MA by distance learning with The Nazarene Theological College Manchester (1999) For the last 22 years, I have been an elder of Shoreham-by-Sea Baptist Church. I also regularly attend the Christian Doctrine Study Group of the Tyndale Fellowship.
