What if there was an alternative to Modern Christianity’s impossible choice? What if you could choose something other than compromising your Christian values or isolating yourself within a rules-based worship environment? What if intimacy with the Lord was no longer a calculated struggle, but a joyful rest?

This small book breaks the back of this no-win trap by proposing th

Won this in a first reads giveaway. I was hoping for something different in this book, like practical advice or an interesting discussion. Instead it was a lot of vague platitudes that I did not find helpful. The author also makes a habit of talking down to his readers, telling them how they should be feeling or thinking about what he is saying. I prefer to have my own reactions, not be told what they should be.

This book is full of contradictions. The whole focus of the book is that God loves us

I received this book as a Goodreads giveaway. I was initially attracted to it because of the questions posed at the beginning of the description: "What if there was an alternative to Modern Christianity’s impossible choice? What if you could choose something other than compromising your Christian values or isolating yourself within a rules-based worship environment? What if intimacy with the Lord was no longer a calculated struggle, but a joyful rest?" Since I am a Christian practicing my faith ...more

I received this book free from the Goodreads first reads program.

I remember a song from church that says “turn your eyes upon Jesus, look him full in the face” and I think that is what Chris Jesse is trying to tell us. Keep your eyes on God and don't look to the left or the right. Anytime we are looking elsewhere we are losing our focus on God, which is less.

I enjoyed Chapter 3 which discussed what I call a 'snapshot in time'. We have all done something that we are not proud of, something that e

This book contains a big message, but comes in a small package. I like how the size and title of the book correspond to the theme. I liked this book because it contains reminders that bring your mind back to truth. Truth can easily be distorted in the world we live in, but Chris Jesse brings up important topics without a judgmental tone. The reflective study questions will help ground the issues in your personal life. If you need a quick reminder to help you refocus your life on Christ, this ...more

I received this book free from the good reads first reads program. I really enjoyed this book it talks about our relationship with God and how to make it stronger. We are God's children and he is our beloved father. This book is a must read for any Christian it has very important lessons that any Christian can learn.

I am not a religious person, I am still searching. A lot of concepts hit me the wrong way. My husband, who is very open to spiritual thinking was not offended by the concepts. I think I might be reading it wrong, but it seems to say that you don't need to worry about your health, or, this or that. It is already taken care of. what happens, happens.

Though the premise is 5 star and vital to all. The book misses its mark with me from the time he states God took his wife. God doesn't take people he receives them and that is a big difference.

This book is a no nonsense kind of book. It tries to help with furthering your relationship with Christ, but I disagreed with a lot of the concepts in the book.
