Wakulla Book Review: He Who Has an Ear, Who the Seven Churches of Revelation are Today, by Laura J. Davis
He Who Has an Ear by Laura J. Davis is a good book! First, it is easy to read. It’s nice to have a religious-type book written so a regular mere mortal can grasp the points being made by the author. The chapters are set up so that questions are anticipated and addressed. Additionally, there are enough historical references to make the chapters interesting, yet not so much detail as to become a bore. In other words, this book strikes a perfect balance. I also found the Scriptural references done in such a way as to communicate the point without becoming oppressive.
The book allows for the reader to ponder not only the churches of today as they related to the churches in Revelation, but it also allows the reader to consider the personal aspects of being a church member and spiritual member of the family of God. There is likely some good food for thought for anyone who reads this book.
I think the author displays a refreshing bravery in “telling it like it is” when she discusses the “wolves” in chapter 12. I was surprised to see some of my feelings about current “big-time” ministries put on paper. While the author, a former Christian singer, may have had health related issues which ended her singing ministry, her work here “sings” to me like one of those old-time gospel songs. This is also the only book about a “Revelation topic” that I have ever enjoyed. Great book! Read it!
