This is a book that as soon as I finished listening, I knew I had to listen to again. There is just so much wisdom to be found here from those who have lived long, fruitful lives and share the lessons learned over a life time. There are no surprises in the five secrets, but distilling them in this fashion helps one to see when it has all been said and done exactly what things really count in this life.
I have both read Radical and listened to the audio version. The advantage of the hard copy was to highlight key thoughts and quotes. Almost every page of my personal copy is marked! The advantage of the audio version is being able to hear the passion in David Platt's voice as he warns of our making "Jesus as one who brings us comfort and prosperity as we live out our Christian spin on the American dream." This is a convicting read and caused me to take stock with what we are doing with our lives and resources entrusted to us.
For all the talk about Heaven being the eternal home of believers in Christ, very little is talked about. Randy Alcorn's HEAVEN spends several chapters building a Theological Doctrine of Heaven, and then the fun part comes when he begins to share the implications of that theology. Very encouraging and certainly something to look forward to, rather than dread! Highly recommended reading.
Thoroughly enjoyable story. I loved every minute of it. Not a dull moment.
In a go-go world where few stop to think about what life is really all about, this book is a reminder that our lives are important and do count. We are significant and the impact our lives have on others cannot often be understood in this life time. I was very glad that I took the time to listen to this wonderful story. I hope you do too. You won't be sorry.
