Publisher's Summary

Recognized from her roles on Survivor, The View, and Fox & Friends, celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck presents a deeply intimate journey of faith, told through the important moments in her life.

"Point of view", by definition, is a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. Through her nearly two decades of broadcasting, Elisabeth learned the necessity of extracting the point of view of the person being interviewed on a particular topic or subject or experience. Doing so allows you to see issues and truths through another's eyes. It requires a shift in perspective to see the story through their lens. 

In this illuminating audiobook, Elisabeth walks through the times - from her national celebrity days to her newest role as CBO (chief breakfast officer) - where she saw something differently than how God wanted her to, and the path back to his point of view was sometimes rocky but always revealing. Sometimes, God's intentions for her were clear, yet other times, she encountered situations so uncomfortable and blurry that she could only ask for his wisdom.

In this audiobook, Elisabeth welcomes you into the many different, and often divergent, points of view she has witnessed and learned from along the way. It is a journey that brought her to the ultimate point of view she discovered in the Word of God - that until she sees herself as he sees her, she is not seeing at all. 

As you listen through the stories here, she invites you to make the same discovery for yourself.

Critic Reviews

"Elisabeth has captivated me - as she has most of America - from the beginning of her public life on Survivor, through her days on The View, and in her classy, intelligent presence on Fox & Friends. While this book chronicles details and events throughout her life, including those public forums, the thread of her faith and her commitment to Christ through all of those seasons inspires me like crazy.” (Sandra Stanley, North Point Ministries, speaker and author)

“God has given Elisabeth this platform to share many of her stories so the rest of us can be inspired by her dreams, courage, endurance, tenacity, vulnerability, transparency, and most of all, dependence on her creator. She shows us how to make the absolute most of every single opportunity but is also humble enough to accept when God is gently guiding her into an entirely different realm of life. Thank you, Elisabeth, for encouraging us to go full force after our dreams, all while staying in His will.” (Missy Robertson, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and New York Times best-selling author)

“I have been blessed to know Elisabeth since she first arrived in New York City to work on The View. We have talked honestly together, prayed earnestly together, and cried vulnerably together. To know her is to love her. Her view will inspire you to trust for God’s best in your life, to look each morning to His light to guide your way, and to stay joyfully on the unique path He has for you. In Point of View, you will learn to live, love, and leave well.” (Kathie Lee Gifford, co-host of Today’s fourth hour)

Wonderful, inspiring and informative

This is such a wonderful book. I was inspired by Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s honesty. She filled this book with many life lessons ranging from surviving in the Australian outback, journalism, motherhood, married life, friendships, even table etiquette, if you happen to be dining with the queen.
The best life lesson she shared was how she used Gods word and the power of the Holy Spirt to help guide her path, and live with gratitude.
I love bios and memoirs, inspirational, spiritual, religious, and informative books. This book seamlessly combines all these genres into one book. One of the best nonfiction books I have read.

Wow

If this was paperback I would have had a hard time putting down. The book made a long drive enjoyable. Not knowing a lot about Elisabeth I felt like I was becoming a friend by the end of the book. Scripture insight and real life personal meanings bring the book home. There are even a few times when you will laugh out loud. Dinner with the Queen....
Thanks

A much better “Point Of View”

With the curiosity that killed the cat, I wanted to read this book to see if Elizabeth would reveal what actually happened to her at The View. Well, I got the answer but a whole lot more. Elizabeth revealed her heart with such honesty about everything-her life choices, her work, her family, her walk with God. I could not have asked for anything more! Such honest, encouraging words surrounded by Scripture.

Comes Across as Bland & Rigid

I wasn't too familiar with Elisabeth prior to listening to her audiobook. I don't watch the View or Fox & Friends. I'm the most familiar with her from her days on Survivor (looonnnnng time ago).

Recently, she has been a guest on several Christian podcasts that I enjoy. Most of my audiobook choices are recommendations from podcasts that I listen to. Despite not being too familiar with Elisabeth, I decided to listen to her memoir. While I appreciate her go-getter attitude I found that overall she came across as not particularly adept at storytelling (seriously bland) & rather arrogant in her rigid opinions. I, too, am Christian and found myself cringing several times during her book.

If you're looking for Christian memoir recommendations, here are some of my favorites: Remember God by Annie F. Downs,
Of Mess & Moxie by Jen Hatmaker, Inspired by Rachel Held Evans and The Ministry of Ordinary Places by Shannan Martin.
