Book You Need To Read: A Word to the End Time Church by Georgie Newman

When Bring It On! Communications sent me a copy of Georgie Newman's "A Word to the End Time Church" to review I was a bit hesitant about the book. I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of end time theology, as the bible clearly states that no man shall know the time that Christ will appear. My hesitation was quickly wiped away as I started to read this wonderfully written, insightful book.


Georgie Newman is a layperson with no formal education in theology but she possesses an incredible gift for interpretation and teaching the Bible. The first section of her book, How Well Do You Know Him?, is a straightforward introduction and explanation of Christianity. Though this book is written for Christians this section is invaluable; the section on How to Hear God answered a lot of questions I have been asking myself for years. I was also fascinated by the discussion of the rhema and the logos (the two ways in which God can speak to us): logos is a systematically written or laid forth, like a sermon or the Bible while rhema is described as a word, an utterance, a pouring forth of a message from the Holy Spirit. It is those messages that we receive in our hearts and souls from God. There is also instruction on how to determine whether words that we receive are, in fact, from God, and what we should do when we receive rhema from God.

In the second section of her book (Are You Ready?), Georgie Newman challenges the reader to take a close look at their faith walk. While a case is made for the fact that we are living in the end times, this is not the theme of this section; rather, we are reminded that as Christians we are instructed to live our lives as if we are always living in the time of Revelation. The reader is asked tough questions such as "Are you standing on solid ground?" and "What do you really believe?" and given guidance if they find they are lacking in certain areas. This book probes all areas of the believers walk and implores the reader to make change where it is needed.

"A Word to the End Time Church" is a compelling, thoughtful book written by a woman who is clearly a messenger of God's word. I found myself unable to put it down and was forced to ask myself questions that I had been avoiding regarding my faith. It is a highly recommended book and one that I am sure I will be returning to many times in the future.

Thank you so much for taking time to review my book, A Word to the End Time Church. I am humbled by your glowing review. I need to apologise because I was sure I had written to you, but I am unable to see any comment from me on your site. So I am unsure of what has happened that you did not receive my heartfelt thanks. It is everything to know we are pleasing God in what we do, and what He has called us to achieve whilst here on earth. However, we all need to be encouraged, and that is exactly what you have done for me.
I can be reached on my blog at if I can be of any help.
May God richly bless you.
Georgie Newman
