When James MacDonald speaks, I lean forward in my chair to catch every word. He communicates the Word of God with a deep commitment to the truth and with a great understanding of the people who hear him. His book, Lord, Change My Attitude (Before It's Too Late) captures in written style the excitement of his pulpit presentations. He makes you want to hear what God has said, and, better still, you find yourself wanting to do it.
-David Jeremiah, Turning Point Ministries
Since our attitude determines our actions, it is critical to begin thinking right so that we can begin living right. In this fine work, James MacDonald gives each of us the principles necessary for developing a better attitude so we can live a better life.
-Dr. Tony Evans, president, The Urban Alternative, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship
Some books are filled with truth, other books are fun to read, and a few books change your life. But rarely does one book do all three. So, if you long to change, but don't mind enjoying the process, then Lord, Change My Attitude is for you. It's a winner!
-Chip Ingram, chairman & CEO of Living on the Edge
From the Back Cover
It's not about your struggles.
It's not about your circumstances.
It's not about your relationships.
It's about your attitude.
In this bestseller, James MacDonald reveals just how much our attitudes affect our lives. Drawing on the experience of the Israelites who grumbled in the wilderness, he shows how bad attitudes rob us of joy and wholeness. Our hearts weren't made for coveting, complaining, and being critical. They were made for thankfulness, contentment, and love. Is your heart straining under the weight of a bad attitude?
If you're looking for easy answers or a quick fix, this book isn't for you. But if you're ready for a serious, inside-out attitude adjustment, there is no better place to start than this: "Lord, change my attitude . . . before it's too late."

Disappointing to have picked this one up, though it did make some good points along the way.
The book is comprised of 10 chapters--5 chapters covering 5 major attitude issues (complaining, covetousness, criticism, doubt, and rebellion) and 5 attitude adjustments (thankfulness, contentment, love, faith, and submission). When I started the year, I was having some pretty strong struggles with most of these major issues due some events that happened towards the end of 2011. That said, it has been amazing to see how the Lord has changed my attitude and even my situations as I've worked through this book.
With Number 13-14 as the focal passage for the book, MacDonald demonstrates how the Israelites chose each of the 5 attitude issues and how making attitude adjustments changed their outcome. While I've done several studies on the journey of the Israelites from Egypt to the Promised Land, this is the first one I've ever seen focusing on the heart of the reason they were left to wander in the wilderness for forty years. Did you know that the number one reason God chose to let the Israelites wander is the desert and eventually die was their attitude? Yep, says it right there in Numbers 14:26-30.
"The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, "How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who are grumbling against Me? I have heard the complaints of the sons of Israel, which they are making against Me. Say to them, `As I live,' says the LORD, `just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will surely do to you; your corpses will fall in this wilderness, even all your numbered men, according to your complete number from twenty years old and upward, who have grumbled against Me. Surely you shall not come into the land in which I swore to settle you, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun."
It wasn't prostitution or murder or any one of the big 10. It was their attitude. Talk about some strong words to give you an attitude check! God definitely does not like sour attitudes.
MacDonald's goal in writing this book is to help all who read to overcome these attitudes and replace them with positive ones. He begins each chapter with an intriguing introduction or a few words of encouragement, then relates the topic to scripture and practical life examples and finally closes with some practical solutions one can implement right away as well as a focused prayer that points your face ever upward.
This is definitely one book that will remain on my shelves and I will be sure to go back to read again and again as the need arises. We all have attitudes that need adjusting at one time or another, but I have never found another book that addresses the issue head on quite like James MacDonald does in Lord, Change My Attitude. There are so many take-aways from this book that one thing I will say--when you read this book, be sure to have a highlighter in hand. You won't regret it.
