Format: Hardcover
The subtitle for this book is "Clean Living in a Contaminated World", and it is must read material for the Body of Christ. Pastor Groeschel deals with relevant topics such as identifying false beliefs; the power of your words and thoughts; toxic behaviors, emotions, relationships and influences; healthy boundaries; legalistic religion; forgiveness and bitter roots.

Our culture is saturated with beliefs and behaviors that are counter-productive to the blessings that come from living life in a God-ordained way. We have great freedom in Christ, but many of the freedoms available to us culturally and socially do not truly bring life to us, nor do they have long-term value.

The mind is the primary battlefield for spiritual growth and transformation and this is why Soul Detox is so needed. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

"The longer we view ourselves through a distorted lens, the more likely we are to believe a distorted truth."

"We trust money to make us significant because we don't know who we are in Christ. And we believe money will make us secure because we trust money more than we trust Christ."

"You are not a victim of your thoughts. You have the power through Christ to take them captive."

"When our moods and emotional needs depend on acquiring more possession, more money, more toys, then we're in for a toxic shock when we find our hands full and our hearts empty."

"When we truly change what we believe, we'll gladly change how we behave."

"Rather than sinking into the quicksand of sin, you can swim into the clean water of God's forgiveness and cleansing love.

This book is a must read for anyone living in our culture today. It's not a list of do's and don't's to detox your soul but a close examination of what influences and emotions you are allowing to pollute your mind, will, and emotions. It will step on your toes and force you to ask yourself some really tough questions, but in the end, if you let the truth of what God is telling you shine through the book, your heart and soul will never be the same.

There are a lot of really positive reviews for this book. So I want to be careful to not insult any of them with my review. But, I politely disagree with all of the 5 star reviews.
This book is great for a newer Christian or one that needs or wants these sort of guard rails (in my opinion). If you are a believer that is seeking to stretch and grow, you may be disappointed with Soul Detox.
Again in my opinion, this is the usual Christian self-help book put out there that doesn't do much to challenge a person's walk or understanding. But you should understand that I have already done a lot of unplugging from the culture. So, this book wasn't really written to someone like me. I am looking for a book that will challenge me and give me a new perspective. A book that will make me examine how I live out my faith. And for me, the suggestion to not watch The Virgin Suicides wasn't really what I was looking for when I bought this book.

I was fortunate enough to read Soul Detox in advance and hear him preach on this subject. I can honestly say that the practical implications for me after hearing this message have shifted the way I think, react and how I want to move forward to be all that God has called me to be.

We're all under renovation and this is a great tool that not only brings to our attention the toxicity of the world we're living in but gives us practical steps on how we can detox and become all that we were meant to be.

It's a good read.

In a culture that's hyper focused on the newest diet or exercise routine, rarely do we ever talk about how to cleanse our heart. Pastor Craig writes with clarity, love & a passion for seeing your Soul forever changed. Read THIS BOOK!!

Our staff having heard Craig Groeschel at the 2012 Global Leadership Summit Simulcast, all came up to me and said, "We need to read his new book: Soul Detox." Read it we did, and what a great read it is!

As I began reading the opening chapters and looking at the toxic behaviors he was writing about I wondered, how are we going to work through all this? We did so with great conversation and input. That's what's great about this book, it is awesome stand alone read, but it's even better and life changing when processed with a group.

Dealing with Toxic Behaviors, Toxic Emotions, and Toxic Influences, Craig does so with a humorous way, a Biblical way, an honest look and a path directed towards clean living in a contaminated world.

At times the book was like looking in the mirror and saying, "Man, you got work to do." The book showed the flaws and failures of my life. Even more Craig showed the path of forgiveness and a new way of life. The stories he shared of real life people dealing with some horrific situations and the contrast between being overwhelmed by the toxins of life and even better overcoming the toxins of life were powerful.

As a communicator and a leader, my favorite chapter was Chapter 3: Lethal Language: Experiencing the Power of Life Giving Words. When I am at my worst, my words can be cutting and condescending. When I am at my best, my words are encouraging and life building. Craig challenged me to look at how I use my words and to put more thought into each word that I say.

I give Soul Detox 5 out of 5 stars. It was a great staff read, even more it was a much needed personal read.
