Review

“Gets to the heart of how to live like Jesus a little more each day. This book can add joy to your life that you’ve never experienced before.”
–Josh D. McDowell, author of More Than a Carpenter, New Evidence that Demands a Verdict, and Beyond Belief to Convictions

"Robert Jeffress reminds us that the essence of the gospel is a changed life flowing from a God-transformed heart. From such a heart pours obedience, faith, contentment, service, and prayer—every facet of our continuing relationship with God. This book will ignite a passion to live wholly and holy for God as an overflow of our heart's love for Him."
– R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“True, raw, real Christianity–what does it look like? Dr. Robert Jeffress helps us discover what God actually wants from us and for us. Cutting through all the clutter of theology, cultural misconceptions, and assumptions, Jeffress goes to the core of Christianity. In this powerful book, he shows how to un-complicate our Christian walk by focusing on what really matters to God. Clutter Free Christianity will help you find the joy of ‘setting your heart on things above’ and guarding it against destructive behaviors. This is a book for every Christian who wants to experience God’s transforming work and walk the path of intentional Christian living.”
–Karol Ladd, bestselling author of the Power of a Positive Woman series

“With the skill of a surgeon, Robert Jeffress cuts to the heart of the matter of spiritual growth. This is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to be serious about the Christian walk.”
–Dr. Geoff Hammond, president of the North American Mission Board, SBC

Would you do surgery on yourself? No? You need a surgeon? Okay, would you help your surgeon do surgery on you? How about heart surgery?

Of course, in the physical realm, we would never perform heart surgery or even try to help our cardiac surgeon do the procedure. But in the spiritual realm, it's required. Although we become new creations when we are accept the Master, the process of sanctification -- becoming like Yeshua (Jesus) -- is the work God does in us with our cooperation and with us doing a lot of the work.

Clutter Free Christianity, What God Really Desires for You by Robert Jeffress describes how to assist God in performing heart surgery on you. He describes six fundamental areas where we need to have a change in heart in order to become more Christlike: We need to learn to (1) forgive, (2) obey, (3) trust, (4) be content, (5) serve others and (6) pray. This process is a lifelong journey toward transformation.

Clutter Free Christianity focuses on what God really requires from us in order to have a relationship with Him. Too often we get busy with our "to do" list -- we volunteer our time, we cook for various functions, we take Bible study classes, we chaperone the youth retreat -- and we lose sight of what God really wants us to focus on in order to be good disciples of the Master. The funny thing is, when we focus on the changes our heart requires, the "to dos" of corporate worship become easy. You'll never learn to forgive, trust, be content, etc., from cooking for a church supper, but if you work on forgiveness, trust, being content, etc., cooking for a church supper will naturally flow out of those heart transformations.

This book is great for baby believers, but is even better for those who have been at it awhile -- it brings back your focus to what really matters to God.

This book was like bad cold--I couldn't shake it.

Dealing with the heart of the matter in following Christ, there wasn't a lot of new information for me. Which is why I kept trying to put it down...but every time I'd read a little I found I wanted to keep going.

Jeffress is witty, real and smart in his writing. I felt like I got to know him in this book. Like a great mentor, he gently and compellingly kept encouraging me to do what I already knew I needed to be doing to strengthen my walk with Christ.

Here's a two for one review...from me and my wife:

I don't know where to start with my review of this book; however, I will say that I think it will be one of the most impactful books that I will read this year. Quite the statement and needing some qualification I am sure. What makes it so impacting? You might wonder; "Is it profound and revelatory?" No, there is nothing profound...at least to my thinking, but there is page after page of affirming teaching. Most exciting is the succinct and down-to-earth delivery of Dr. Jeffress. One can sense the wisdom and years of pastoral experience coming through the delivery of this message. And what a message it is! Clutter-Free Christianity does not do justice to what resides beneath the title and between the covers. This book is about life...real life, ABUNDANT LIFE; the kind of life that our Savior Jesus Christ came to this earth to give us. This book is about redemption, reconciliation, and restoration. This book is about the invitation, acceptance, and participation of new life transformed into the image of the first-born of many brothers. It is about imago-dei and the call to "be thou transformed."

The subject and the context of the book are enough for me to do cartwheels of excitement over, but there are other technical merits that I'd like mention too. For starters, the book is an easy read. This doesn't mean that it is elementary is sharing deep spiritual truths. It means that deep spiritual truths are shared in such a way that every person, regardless of education or Biblical training, will glean benefit...perhaps that is part of the "clutter-free" meaning behind the title. The book is not weighted down with heavy terms, definitions, and doctrinal treatise. This makes it an easy read. Second, Dr.

My impression is that for a book that teaches how to live a Clutter-Free life, it's very cluttered.

I almost stopped after reading the first two sentences in Chapter 1. "Imagine your employer announces that in two weeks you'll be moving to Vienna, Austria...forever. How would you react?"

My reaction would be to walk up to my employer and say "I quit".

But after awhile, I resumed reading. And while I agree with many of the things Jeffress says, like "What does our Creator desire from us...? A heart fully devoted to him...that loves other[s] ... as much as we love ourselves", I feel that there are many things that just distract me from the points he's trying to make.

I feel that Chapter 1 should start and end on page 11, and Chapter 2 should have only four paragraphs, three from page 26 and one from page 28. That everything else in the first two Chapters are unnecessary clutter which hinders Jeffress' message.

To sum up and conclude my review, I'll repeat my original statement. I think that for a book that teaches Clutter-Free Christianity, it's very cluttered.

-Revision-
My Church has finally finished reading this book. And to de-clutter it, I think you should rip out the first 9 chapters and go straight to Chapter 10. Because Chapter 10 sums up everything else in the book without distraction or clutter.
