    It's so easy to forget what the Christian faith is all about. We struggle so much, work so hard, and fail so often that we frequently sense something in the equation of life must be missing. Tullian Tchividjian argues that what we are missing is the gospel - a fuller, more powerful understanding of Jesus and what his finished work means for everyday life. During a year of great turmoil, Pastor Tchividjian discovered the power of the gospel in his own life. Sharing his story, Tchividjian delves deeply into the faith.

    Story
    What did you love best about Jesus + Nothing = Everything?

    I am drawn to this book. I have been thru it at least once, and my wife and I are listening together now. Tchividjian speaks a relevant biblical truth to a culture that does not always want to hear the whole gospel. I truly believe Mr. Tchividjian is on to something! I personally need Jesus to be enough, and it's been my experience, He is. This book is a wonderful reminder of what Jesus meant when He said, "Take up your cross, come follow Me". This is a great book for the growing and maturing Christian.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jesus + Nothing = Everything?

    His personal testimony of Colossians speaking to him while he was on vacation.


    What about Adam Verner’s performance did you like?

    Seemed to deliver with authentic emotions.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    ..."how then should we live?"


    Any additional comments?

    I do recommend this book to every growing and maturing Christian.

  • Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions

    God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this audiobook to several of my friends already. I am on my second listen and appreciate the sound biblical reminders the book offers when emotions rise and my own thoughts begin to prevail. It has served as a wonderful redirecting of my thoughts back to God's perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Lysa's vulnerability which she reveals throughout the book. I do not believe I would have stuck with the subject matter had I not believed she actually lived life like the rest of the world.


    What does Lysa TerKeurst bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Of course it is much more enjoyable to listen to the author herself reading how she felt in those particular moments she is sharing. I think the impact can be greater on the listener.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It brought up some memories and examples within my own mind of my life and how much I have to be ready to practice "soul integrity" as she calls it - Godly honesty all of the time in every relationship. I was particularly drawn to her explanation and examples of putting up barriers vs. setting boundaries. I did smile and relate numbers of times with her examples.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is a REAL girl's book. I would recommend it to any girl/woman who wants to be honest with herself and others and follow a God of honesty and truth.
