Editorial Reviews

Review

When James MacDonald speaks, I lean forward in my chair to catch every word. He communicates the Word of God with a deep commitment to the truth and with a great understanding of the people who hear him. His book, Lord, Change My Attitude (Before It's Too Late) captures in written style the excitement of his pulpit presentations. He makes you want to hear what God has said, and, better still, you find yourself wanting to do it.
-David Jeremiah, Turning Point Ministries

Since our attitude determines our actions, it is critical to begin thinking right so that we can begin living right. In this fine work, James MacDonald gives each of us the principles necessary for developing a better attitude so we can live a better life.
-Dr. Tony Evans, president, The Urban Alternative, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship

Some books are filled with truth, other books are fun to read, and a few books change your life. But rarely does one book do all three. So, if you long to change, but don't mind enjoying the process, then Lord, Change My Attitude is for you. It's a winner!
-Chip Ingram, chairman & CEO of Living on the Edge

From the Back Cover

It's not about your actions.  It's not about your circumstances.
It's not about your relationships.  It's not even about your life's calling.
It's all about . . . your attitude!

"You can stop the flow of negativity that causes happiness to hemorrhage, and you can start the flow of good attributes that cause abundant joy to flourish," MacDonald writes in his refreshing book, Lord, Change My Attitude. Attitudes, says author and pastor James MacDonald, are patterns of thinking that take years to form. While we can't change out attitudes overnight, we can recognize wrong attitudes and begin working on right attitudes to take their place.

Format: Paperback
Pastor James MacDonald presents yet another outstanding book on a very neglected topic in today's Christianity. His premise is that our bad attitudes keep us away from the victorious Spirit-filled life that God wants us to live.
Using the scandalous Old Testament story of God refusing to allow the Israelites to enter the promised land, Pastor MacDonald pulls principles and applications right out of the text to identify my attitudes that INFURIATE the Lord (grumbling, complaining, etc.) and gives me practical ways to embrace attitudes that PLEASE Him (thankfulness, contentedness, etc.).
People who have read his best-selling debut, I Really Want To Change - So Help Me God, will be familiar with his very unique writing style. Think A.W. Tozer meets ESPN SportsCenter.
So get practical, get serious and get changing with this great book.

33 of 34 people found the following review helpful By Michael Taylor TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
"Lord, Change My Attitude (Before It's Too Late)" concerns the need for us to be reponsible for our own attitudes instead of letting others or circumstances dictate how we should act. The book is a timely title, especially when you consider the entitlement mentality and blame others for our problems attiude so prevalent in society.

James MacDonald takes 5 different negative attitudes and shows how we should replace those with a better attitude. Here are the book's contents:

1. Replace a Complaining Attitude

2. With a Thankful Attitude

3. Replace a Covetous Attitude

4. With an Attitude of Contentment

5. Replace a Critical Attitude

6. With an Attitude of Love

7. Replacing a Dobuting Attitude

8. With an Attitude of Faith

9. Replacing a Rebellious Attitude

10. With an Attitude of Submission

The book is well-thought out and well-written. The reader will be challenged to examine his or her own attitude towards others and life in general. I personally liked MacDonald's writing style (simple without being simplistic, challenging, etc.) and thoroughly enjoyed the book.

Read, enjoy, and be challenged. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book is a revolutionary educational tool for the body of Christ. Our attitudes are the foundation of how we experience life. This book is easy reading and it is very action oriented. Every Christian should read this book and apply the principles, which are Word based, to his or her life. This an awesome book. Whoever reads this book and receives it will be eternally blessed! Classes should be offered in ministries based on this book.

Great, great book! His writing style is so personal, he uses a lot of personal stories and makes everything very practical. Easy to follow and I like how he gives you a few questions at the end to ponder. This guy is an amazing writer and even more amazing pastor. Check out his radio ministry: [...]

Format: Paperback
This book, along with Pastor James's other book (I Really Want TO Change), is one of the best books I've ever read. He has a way of talking right to you - and everything he has to say are things that every believer desperately needs to hear. This book has prompted me on to seriously changing my attitudes. Any one who reads this will be blessed - and convicted!

Format: Paperback
James MacDonald is able to articulate his thinking very well. He has crystallised the principles found in the narratives of Numbers 11-16, and applied it to the 21st century.
This book is a very good read for all of us who want to live a Christ centred life. It requires a choice to do that - an attitude choice. I know the Holy Spirit will be with each one of us if we apply these principles to our lives.
I would recommend it to personal reading and small groups, as well as to families for their family devotions. Its also good for church book clubs. It can stimulate lot of discussion and thinking.

the author, James Mcdonald, has a way of being "real". We are a society of legalistic, religious people, missing God's true points. I think James hit a HomeRun with this one

Format: Paperback
A 2007 summer reading list mini review.

James MacDonald has written a relevant book about approaching life with the proper attitudes. The steps are clear as they are obtainable. It is written with a pastor's heart but also from the perspective of just an ordinary believer trying to follow God wholeheartedly no matter what.

Macdonald's candor about his own struggles helps the reader to deal honestly with their own. This is an excellent first book for those not famliliar with the concepts of "taking off and putting on." The book examines individual unbiblical attitudes such as complaining and rebellion and shows how to replace those with biblical attitudes.
