Tony Scott in his new book, "The Diamond Life" published by Color House Graphics shows us You Are More Than You Have Become!

From the inside jacket flap: The Diamond Life

You are more than you have become

Your life is created as a "Diamond in the Rough." The purpose of your life can only be revealed as you experience the "Diamond Life Formula." You are to be "shaped, cut, chiseled, refined and polished" in order for your true value and beauty to be seen.

Heat, pressure and time are the key ingredients in the formation of a diamond. In our lives we must deal with these same phases. How you handle these, how you process each phase will determine the significance of your life.

The Diamond Life is a simple, how-to map toward life transformation which leads to self- actualization - you becoming who you really are!

Have you ever seen a diamond when they first mine it out? I am so amazed that someone decided that this was valuable because it doesn't look like anything. In fact it looks dirty and dingy. Then it is put into the hands of the diamond craftsman who cuts the stone and polishes it and transforms it into an object of dazzling beauty and worth. Pastor Scott feels that is what each one of us is like when we first start off in the rough still carrying the debris of where we were chiseled from then we are cut and polished into the brilliance God can make of us. "The Diamond Life" is broken down into four parts: Part One: ""You" As A Diamond In The Rough", Part Two: ""You" In 3-D", Part Three: ""Your" Diamond Setting" and Part Four: """Your" Secured Wealth". The Holy Spirit is our diamond craftsman it is up to us to put our trust in Him and allow Him to cut and polish us into the diamonds we were intended to be.

A question I've pondered too much in my young life, am I living the best life I have been designed to live?

Pastor Tony Scott has written an incredible, life changing book and I have found my answer! I lost my dad to cancer 3 months ago and told myself, you have to be stronger than this circumstance, you cant let your broken heart be defeated and leave you in a dark place. So I bought Pastor Scotts book to help me cope and help guide me to living a " Diamond Life" that God designed for His gems, His children. Already in the first few chapters I learned that, "tragedy can be turned to triumph".

Despite circumstances, despite sin, Gods purpose never changes for you. This book gives such a deep insight on how to get past that, how to get from your "here to your there". You are more than what your past has made you. More than what tragedy defines you as.

If you are ready to make that choice and step in to Gods purpose for you, this book is a great read to help you do that! I loved it so much, that I am leading a lifegroup/ book study on this and have already bought 17 copies for friends. It will change your life if you open your heart and mind to hear Gods word and allow Him to show you WHO you REALLY are.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nancy Famolari TOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 9, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Tony Scott uses the analogy of the diamond to show how God shapes each life through the trials that beset all of us. His message is that if we let in the holy spirit we will be able to bear and grow with the trials life sends us. We must trust God to not give us anything we can't bear through our understanding that he is always with us.

This book has an excellent message, but each chapter has basically the same ideas. In one way, this is valuable because it makes those ideas hit home as you read the book. In another way, the repetition can mean that the reader begins skipping through the book looking for new ideas.

I recommend this book if you're searching for your meaning in life and wondering why God sent trials to you. It will give you good ideas for making your life the best it can be by trusting in God and allowing the Holy Spirit into your life.

I reviewed this book for PR by the Book.

I am opening this review with a Life Gem from chapter one.
"INSIDE OF YOU IS A DIAMOND WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED"

In The Diamond Life, Tony Scott takes you on a journey of discovering the value of who you are....YOU!! This journey if you are ready will change your life. Tony takes you step by step in seeing the value that (this is from the title) you are more than you have become!

The beauty a diamond has when light hits it, that same light is within you and I. GOD is ready to take us through the refining to find that diamond within us, question is are you ready?

You will not be left unchanged by The Diamond Life, it will encourage, lead, inspire and most of all it will help you get your diamond to shine for all to see!

Happy Reading and Blessings,
Tina

I just read The Diamond Life on my flight back from Europe. God did a wonderful thing by inspiring pastor Tony Scott to write this book. The Diamond Life truly is one of those awesome books that puts how to live for God back into reality through simple but important teachings of the Word. If you want to be motivated to improve yourself and become more complete in your Christian walk than this is a must read. This is truly an awesome and inspiring book, a book that I completed in one reading. The Diamond Life was very timely for me and I will definitely keep it close for those times when I may need to reflect or be inspired.
