I've read alot of books. That might be an understatement in many respects. As I've told people who are doing life in my new sphere when they take a look at my library, it is not that I'm trying to show off or prove anything because I was a "late bloomer" when it comes to reading. I read books but not in a voracious manner prior to about 10 years ago. THEN, for some unknown reason, I got the "bug". Now, I can't read enough – and I'm not that picky when it comes to what to read for I enjoy many genres…but obviously, I love books that enhance my followership of Jesus and encourage me in how to utilize the gifts and passions God has given me in new and more dynamic manners.
So…with that out of the way, let me cut to the chase…this book is a good one. It is simple, easy to read, something you can "digest" in a matter of about 30 minutes but it has MUCH to be absorbed and lived. I usually am a bit skeptical about books that look like they are the type that promise "easy steps"…this one doesn't promise anything but to give each person who reads it an opportunity to "align themselves with the mission of Jesus". I haven't met the author but I look forward to one day doing so…I've read MANY books on the "missional paradigm" – most are good…many are extremely "deep" and rightfully complex…but this book makes many of the truths that have transformed my life approachable to just about anyone who is interested. So, here's to you Dave…good work…you did us all a favor with your book. In addition, I'm going to use many of these "word lessons" as teaching points that I can spread throughout my faith community. For example, Word Lesson #2 "Love others like Jesus loves you"…that's the point, isn't it? You can click on the image and be "driven" right to Amazon.
