Personal stories as well as historical facts are provided to support the program and provide guidance and inspiration to the reader. The applicable knowledge will make a TEN lifestyle seem much more reachable to the reader. The author provides his own TEN story that will make the reader believe in him more and see him as someone who has researched this TEN life he writes about. The steps are split into easily navigable chapters that outline the step and provide support very clearly. This book is a great read for the religious and/or adults trying to improve their lives.
*Complimentary copy received for this review, does not affect my opinion in any way*
The book is divided into the following seven sections that instruct and guide the reader in living a TEN life;
The author believes that people do not want enough. Not more stuff. More life. And not just for ourselves but also for others. Jesus Christ said that His purpose is to give us more "life - life in all its fullness" or "more and better life than [you] ever dreamed of" (John 10:10, NCV, MSG).
The author challenges and provokes the reader to go after the more and better life that God wants for you. The world needs people who would never be satisfied with anything less than a TEN.
This book is written and organized in a very professional manner. The author makes a strong case for living your best life and he uses Scripture from the Bible as a foundation for his message.
There are "Reflection Questions" at the end of each of the seven sections. These questions are great for individual or group reflection and meditation. This book would be a very helpful resource for a Bible study group.
I love the enthusiasm and passion that the author communicates in this book. I can tell that this is a man who really "walks the talk" and "practices what he preaches".
Pastor Smith believes we must have more than a dream. Our grand vision needs to be turned into an actionable plan. I recommend this book to anyone who is ready to start living a TEN life.
FYI ~ I received a complimentary hardback copy of this book to read and review from Audra Jennings of The B & B Media Group.
I enjoy Terry Smith's leadership as my pastor and you will enjoy the odyssey as you read deeply into TEN and become inspired to live your life towards your best futre yet!
Terry A. Smith serves as lead pastor of The Life Christian Church, a non-denominational faith community in West Orange, NJ. He is a cofounder of the New York City Leadership Center. His book, "Ten: How Would You Rate Your Life?" demonstrates seven steps to experiencing life in all of its fullness and achieving what God wants for us.
The majority of the book deals with leadership skills and how to develop them if you want to reach your God-given ambitions. If you aren't satisfied with your life then God has something better in store for you, and Smith will help you define your goals discover God's bigger plan for your life and head toward your dreams in spite of the obstacles in your way.
Just like any self-help book, you must desire to change and be agreeable to doing whatever it takes. Unlike others like it, Smith uses examples from the Bible and quotes Scripture to emphasize his seven-step plan.
If you are looking for more in your life and are willing to step outside of your comfort zone and do what Smith suggests, this book will be a good resource for you. The reflection questions at the end of each section will give you an opportunity to look at yourself and apply what you've read.
