Summary: This book is an instruction manual for living a successful and fulfilling life in Christ.
Some of my questions:
If all that great stuff in the Bible is true, why am I not seeing it? I’m talking about all of the healing and the miracles and the prosperity I read and hear about.
While I’m at it, why do Christians ever get sick? Why are any Christians poor, discouraged, afraid or unsure? Why are any Christians so easily misled?
Because I am a Christian, these questions are important to me, and once I get going I find I have many more.
Naturally, this begs another question: Why did it take me so long to ask?
If you have asked these or similar questions, what I think of as “get real” questions, you need this book. If not you, then you know someone who needs it.
Living in God’s Best answers them all, including why so many of us don’t even ask. It is much like an instruction manual and will help you find out where you are in your spiritual walk how to go on from there.
It ties together the things Andrew has been teaching and writing about for his entire 40+ years of ministry and presents them step by step: What the promise is, what the problem is, and what the solution is.
Andrew often refers to himself as “just a hick from Texas”, and he most certainly started out as one. He was a submitted and obedient hick right from the beginning though, and after he got what marching orders he could handle from God, he followed them. As he faithfully pressed on with the simple message of God’s love and “the Gospel Truth” he didn’t add his own great ideas as many do. Instead, he stuck with the message he had been given and only added what God gave him to add. Because of that, the message stayed the same but he has become a much better messenger. I suppose he is an “ex-hick” from Texas.
This is the same old stuff—two thousand+ years old, in fact—but in an easy to understand, readable, down to earth format. As he often says, the message is “… so simple, you have to have help to misunderstand it.”
If Andrew’s message is new to you this is a great place to start. Andrew has plenty of books and teachings that go deeper into the areas covered in this book, so start with this one and get the others as needed for more depth in specific areas.
If you’re familiar with Andrew’s teaching, then buy two copies. Read one—you’ll love it and learn from it—and give the other to that person you know who needs it.
I bought two, I plan to get a copy for Kindle and give both hard copies away. I’ll get one to keep around handy, too, because those people who need it seem to show up regularly. Nobody should have to look for God’s best without an instruction manual.
