5.0 out of 5 stars Great! Read This!, November 26, 2013
This review is from: Limitless Life: You Are More Than Your Past When God Holds Your Future (Kindle Edition)
“If you’re looking to get free, Derwin points the way.” – Mark Batterson

I was worried when I first received this book. Limitless Life? I have heard enough prosperity gospels in my time to know that that’s not something I want to get into. But, my attitude quickly changed when I started reading. I saw some high profile reviews in the front, from the likes of Jefferson Bethke, Judah Smith, and Marshall Faulk. Then I saw the chapter titles:

- Afraid to Courageous
- Addicted to Free

- Mess to Masterpiece

- Orphan to Adopted

- Damaged goods to Trophy of Grace

- Legalistic to Grace-Covered

- Consumer to Contributor

- Purposeless to Purposeful

- Worker to Worshiper

- Failure to Faithful
I quickly realized this wasn’t a prosperity gospel book, but an “I came to give you life, and life fulfilled” type of book. I finally started to read about this limitless life, and quickly fell in love with this book. Not only is Derwin Gray an amazing individual, but God is doing amazing things in his life. He is pastoring a church called Transformation Church. I thought this was awesome! What an amazing name for a church. I loved that from the beginning. Then as this book continues as you see that transformation is what Gray is all about.

The book is set up beautifully. It is set up by using personal stories and then giving you different “Keys” to changing your label. Gray says that we all have labels and when they are negative labels they hold us back, but when our labels are given to us from God, our lives become limitless. So the keys allow us to open our lives up to God. The “Keys” from chapter one, Afraid to Courageous, are:

Key 1: Have a Humble Heart
Key 2: Believe That God and His Love for You Are Bigger Than Your Giant

Key 3: Expect Opposition . . . and Use It as Fuel

Key 4: Remember God’s Past Faithfulness

Key 5: Wear God’s Armor

Key 6: Know You Are Loved
He then adds a mediation section, “Marinate On That!”. This is an area for us to focus on and really take in. This isn't a book he wrote so that you could read in one sitting, it’s suppose to sit in your soul and “wallpaper” your mind. To end every chapter he opens up a “Transformation Moment.” Here he gives you something to do with your Head, Heart, and Hands. This allows you to meditate, pray, and act. It’s a great way for you to take what you learned and put it into practice.

I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to just about everyone. I don’t have any concerns about this, only that you don’t read this too quickly. Enjoy it, love it, Love God through it.
