Returning to Holiness: A Personal and Churchwide Journey to Revival by Dr. Grefory Frizzell

I read chapter one, which was an introduction for how to use the book. It had some good scriptures about the imortance and practice of intraspection and confession

2 Kings 23
23.3 A Biblical basis for rededicating your life to follow the Lord and keep His commandments? Maybe we need to get some pillars in our sanctuary for people to stand by and covenant before the Lord. :o)
23.4-24 A long list of the evil places and things that he rooted out of the land. It is noteworthy that these events were the precurser to verse 25.
23.25 Now before him there was no king like him, who turned to the Lord with all... This is a favorite verse and hopefully a growing aspiration and practice in my life.
23.31-32 ...reigned three months ... did evil in the sight of the Lord...

2 Kings 24
24.3 The results of our sins often outlive us.
24.19 He also... Hello? Does anybody have a clue what is going on? Why do we just not "get it" so often?

2 Kings 25
25.7 Wow! That was "cold blooded!"
25.27-30 I am curious as to why this was included and what its significance is. It reminds me of God's mercy and ends the book with a small ray of hope.
