Are you sometimes perplexed with Jesus' teaching? Do you really want what he wants? Best-selling author Kyle Idleman reveals that the key to the abundant life Jesus promised lies in embracing his inside-out way of life. As he examines Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, Kyle unpacks the many counterintuitive truths, including: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles. Because only when you come to the end of yourself can you begin to experience the full, blessed, and whole life Jesus offers.

Enjoyed this a lot. Very good reader and so much to think about. Challenging and thoughtful.
It wasn't philosophical which is why I liked it so much. Its for you and me, it's written in the perspective of one person counseling another. It spoke a lot of truth. Really Good!
I was disappointed that Kyle Idleman didn't narrate this himself. This is not a personal bash against the narrator at all, but he just kind of recorded it like a robot. When I am listening to a book like this, one that comes from someone's personal experiences and heart, then I want to hear them accentuate the words and the feeling they have behind those words. It was dry and made it hard to really grasp the heart of the message as a result.
In just an honest comparison, this is not good. I feel bad saying that about a Christian book, but I feel the need to be honest. It doesn't compare, and I really feel its not the content of the story but the fact that it wasn't narrated by him.
If Kyle had done it himself.
I enjoyed this book. I was encouraged and seen areas where I needed to change my way of thinking throughout the whole book. If you have a desire to end the "me" attitude/lifestyle, you'll definitely want to read this book.
The book is great. Great message. very convicting, very heart-opening.
He sounded like a computer.
This book pricked at my hear with every chapter. If you are seeking to experience a closer walk with God and dying to self, this is a wonderful place to start in addition to your Bible study. I loved it!
