Review

It's easy to sing 'All to Jesus I Surrender.'  It's hard to surrender all to Jesus.  In this book, Nancy helps us understand the cost of full surrender to Jesus Christ.  If you hunger to grow your spiritual life to the next level, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
-Dr. David Jeremiah, Senior Pastor, Shadow Mountain Community Church, President, Turning Point Ministries

From the Back Cover

For a Christian, waving the white flag doesn’t mean, “I give up!” It means, “Victory at last!”

Struggling with stubborn habits? Secret sin? Spiritual strongholds? The key isn’t how committed you are to the battle--it’s how surrendered you are to God.  This truth can be your breakthrough--the first step towards a deeper, richer, victorious spiritual life.

With her compelling mix of profound biblical insight and personal example, Nancy Leigh DeMoss reveals why it is only when you surrender your heart, your soul, your body, your ambitions--everything--to God that He can fully help you triumph.

You can win that battle.  You can have that victory.  But not until you learn to Surrender.

This book challenged me to give God more - but in a new way. Before I read this book I was often giving God my time and money, letting Him rearrange my priorities and habits as if these acts of surrender were a painful sacrifice. I learned as I read through these pages that such surrender is no sacrifice, but rather my obvious response to Jesus who gave His all for me.
As I understoond what it meant to be a "bondservant" of Christ, I realized that what I signed up for when I came to Christ was the "school of surrender". It should come as no surprise when he asks for more and more of my heart. And as I yield happily, not under obligation, but out of love and by faith, even the earthly rewards are indescribable. I am so grateful that Miss De Moss wrote this book!

I love it when God sends the right book at the right time, and that is exactly what happened with "Surrender". I think there are times in my life that I understood what surrendering to Christ meant, and I think I have given Him all. While reading "Surrender", I realized that surrendering is a journey. There are always deeper levels of selfishness to overcome. Surrender doesn't necessarily mean giving something up outwardly first, but it it starts with the bowing of the knee so to speak in our heart to Christ. I also realized that the more I try to hold onto and control even the smallest of things, that I ultimately come under bondage to it, and it becomes one more burden to carry. Christ wants to carry our burdens, and live in a life of peace. Surrender is the only answer.

I will definitely recommend this book to my friends, and keep a copy for myself to look at in the future. It is truly a valuable book. I would also highly recommend "Surrender" for a small group, or a book club. DeMoss has a discussion guide at the back of the book for each chapter. It is a fairly easy read, that could be covered in eight weeks.

Addresses very specifically the needs of tramatized and inocent victims who are searching for emotional, spiritual, and practical answers about where they have been. It will bring spiritual wholeness into view without preaching down, judgement, or self-rightous indignation. May many who have been hurt seek out these books.

DeMoss does an excellant job of using Gods Word to "...penetrate even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow...". I loved her specific examples of behavior and then scripture applications for it, such as:

"When your flesh wants to pass along a critical report about another believer, and the Spirit says, "Speak evil of no one" (Titus 3:2) bow your head and surrender to God."
or
"When your flesh wants to lashout in anger, and the Spirit says, "Clothe [yourself] with compassion,kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with one another..." (Collosians #:12-13 NIV), bow your head and surrender to God."

Asking personal questions like: "Have you devoted to Christ "the whole of your life, " or are you merely giving Him your "spare evenings"?
Or Have "you chose friendship with God over all human relationships, earthy attachments, and visible security"?

She gives an excellant example of what surrender looks like by going through the song My Life by Frances Ridley Havergal, the one that starts with "take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to thee..." This alone is worth reading the book for.

It's great convicting stuff even for wonderful mature-in-the-Lord Christians (which I am not compared to the friend who gave me this to read). It's a book I'll read again and save for my daughter.

Jesus is both Savior and Lord. Contrary to one popular teaching, it is impossible to call Jesus Savior while denying His Lordship. Genuine salvation is marked by a profession of faith followed by a life lived in surrender to Christ's authority. If that does not describe your life, then there are only two dangerous possibilities: you are a rebellious child of God or you are not really a child of God. In Surrender: The Heart God Controls, Nancy Leigh DeMoss encourages women to examine their hearts and raise their white flags in glad surrender to God's authority.

Paul writes in his letter to the church at Philippi that they are to continue in obedience and work out their own salvation with fear and trembling (2:12). He would write the same thing to us today because the same God is willing and working in us for His good pleasure. He is the ruler of all creation, and the sooner we surrender to His authority over our lives the more blessed we will be. "Surrender is the source and means of true freedom and fullness," writes DeMoss. The points at which we refuse to surrender to Him, believing ourselves to be free, will also be the very points at which we are ruled, not by our Father, but by sin and misery.

If we would be completely free from sin and living at peace with God, then we must end our battle with him and accept His terms of surrender. He requires nothing less than surrender that is lifelong and unconditional. DeMoss shares her unique testimony in this regard: she came to faith in Christ as a four-year-old child and slowly, but surely, grew in her awareness that her life belonged to God. "As my faith has matured," she writes, "I have faced many situations that have required a fresh affirmation and expression of that initial surrender to the will of God.
