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.
His personal testimony of Colossians speaking to him while he was on vacation.
Seemed to deliver with authentic emotions.
..."how then should we live?"
I do recommend this book to every growing and maturing Christian.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
