I so wanted to like this book. I think that a different reader would enjoy it much more than I did. The topic was great, the points the author brought up were interesting, and I overall enjoyed what she wrote about. I also enjoyed that she was real and engaging and wrote in a seemingly very honest and transparent way. This is one of the many books by young authors that are so helpful in understanding grace as applied to our daily walks with the Lord.
However, I had trouble with her writing style--so much trouble that it was very distracting. She writes in a conversational and rambling style and jumps around from her subject to ideas that seem to occur randomly to her from her past that she then relates to the topic. It made me anxious and I found myself reading too quickly to get through it in order to finish the book. I knew that I wanted to get her points and kind of glossed over parts of her musings because I just wanted the book to be over. She uses a lot of sarcasm that seems out of place in this sort of a book. I was confused and it tired me.
However, to be fair, I can tell from many of the other reviewers that they greatly appreciated not only her message but her writing style too. I think that many people could probably related to her. As a reader you know yourself, and if this sort of thing appeals to you, I don't think you'll be disappointed in her subject matter.
Recommended only if you like this style of writing.
If you really want to know your God, I recommend you read this book on how to reach him and not incur in the same mistakes I did. Like the author, "I don't want to run anymore. I want to kneel".
Excellent reading, I recommend this book to the permanent library of any serious Christian who wants to improve his relationship with our God, that loves us so much!
This book was written by Angie Smith and published on December 2013 and I received a copy for reviewing from the author (through Icon Media Group (Thanks, Kelsey)). I was not requested to provide a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own.
It's kinda like relationships. When girls go chasing boys, they try to put them into little boxes and it doesn't work. They don't want to be put into boxes, they want to be themselves and save us (see the parallel??)
You get to know Angie well in reading this (her character flaws and self-doubts she had during her journey) and it's wonderful. This is a really a warm and personal book that will inspire and hopefully motivate you like it did me.
We need to stop CHASING God and start letting Him come to us. He's much better at it than we are!
