After reading the first chapter of Radical Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt, you start thinking how have I missed it and how has our churches missed it. It seems like everyone is caught up in the American Dream including the church. From just the first chapter it will make you step back and think hard about your life and what is important. I cannot wait to read the rest of this book.

Plan B - Review

This book, Plan B, by Pete Wilson is a must have for anyone with these types questions: why did my life not turn out the way I thought it would, what is the next step since I am not where I want to be or this was not suppose to happen so now what. This book has met me in a place of me searching for answers in my life. Some of the information is new and some of the information is confirming the words that have been spoken to me in the past few days, weeks and months.

This book is very well written and down to earth read. The first part of the book is gentle in nature. This helps the reader to get to know the heart of the author. Then towards the end of the book some not so gentle advice is giving but it is done in love, mercy and grace. And knowing the author has your best interest at heart it is painless to take. So be prepared for this and your life will be change forever.

You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be - Review

This gift book, You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be by Max Lucado, would be an excellent gift for a graduate. I wish I had it when I had graduated from high school or even college. Looking back it would have been nice to have some none bias opinions for the direction of your life. This book would serve well in this role. Parents, teachers and guidance counselors have great ideas and want you to be successful in life but they may not pull the true desires of your heart out. This book can get you to think and reflect on what motivations you which could lead you in the right path for your life.

This book has great illustrations on life. The one I remember most out of the book is S.T.O.R.Y. I will not tell you what it means but this will help keep things in perspective. Overall this is a good book for anyone to read to bring you back into balance. I like the cover of the book and the book is an easy read. Life can be difficult but this book just might help with making it a bit easier.

Review of Different Eyes the Art of Living Beautifully

As for the outside of the book, I like the look of the cover for Different Eyes the Art of Living Beautifully by Steve Chalke. As for the inside of the book, it is clean looking, written very well and laid out very nicely which makes it very easy to read.

This book is very thought-provoking. It allows the reader to think differently about several subjects. At the end of each section are letters addressing tough issues. Along with these letters are questions to help engage your mind into looking at these issues in another way.

This book is very well written and at times very deep. But do not let that scare you away from reading it. There are several quotes that I will use from this book. There is a great story about comparing a police recruit and Christian living. If you want to challenge your view, this book is for you.

This book was provided to me by Zondervan Publishers for review purposes.
