What a GREAT book! I had to start off with that comment. What did I love about it? It seemed almost as if it were a confessional of Craig. He was so real and honest about his own struggles. It made me as a pastor feel OK with not being perfect. Yet, at the same time I wanted to get better at my walk with Jesus. The stories are inspiring, funny, convicting, and real.

I could easily see any person relating with at least 10 of the 12 chapter…if not all of them. As a pastor, I would like to use each chapter as a spring board for a sermon. There are multiple scripture references to back up his points. Plus, as typical with Craig, you’ll learn a little Greek along the way.

The book is also an easy read. Craig is a great writer. He writes as well as he speaks. He’s easy to track and follow where he’s going. There’s no guessing. Sure, it’s easy to read, but you while you’re reading, you’re thinking about where you can be more like Christ in your life.

I encourage anyone to pick up this book! Each ‘Christian’ out there is some form of “Christian Atheist”. Change that and make a difference in this world. Show people who the REAL Jesus is and what he did for us.
