My Impressions: 
The book starts out by taking readers back to Old Testament times during the enslavement of the Israelite's in Egypt. During the Exodus  we find the four promises given by God that Hodges draws from for his book.

God promised His people that He would free them from their oppression, rescue them from slavery, redeem them with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment, and claim them as His own people. (Exodus 6: 6-7) These are the promises God made to the nation of Israel, but they are also promises for all people who call on the name of the Lord and trust in the atoning blood of Christ Jesus.. 

 I really enjoyed and appreciated Hodges' emphasis on community verses individual life of belief. The book uses Jewish history and tradition to help us understand the purpose God has for us now in our current life situations. 

I can recommend this book for anyone wanting to dig deeper into the promises of God and His plans for our lives.
