Format: Hardcover
Focus on the Family president Jim Daly is clearly absolutely passionate about reaching and engaging with those living apart from Christ in a way that is truly Christ-like. That is what this important book, ReFocus, is all about. As Jim himself writes, "This isn't a book about what's going badly in the culture, but rather about how Christians should respond to it."

It is a hope-filled book filled with insights, personal stories and challenges Christians need to hear and be inspired by. Jim brings us back to the practical living out of Christian faith by showing Christ's love to others through our words and actions. It reads relatively quickly, but it will be 200 pages of time very well spent.

I love the biblical truth in this book. It has helped me to be a better disiple in these very difficult times. I read it to help me better represent my self as a Christian with the far left friends and family I deal with on a regular basis during the election. I really enjoyed the book and feel it has enriched my relationship with God and others.

Jim Daly's "ReFocus" is an important book for Christians to read. In it, he talks not so much about what is going badly in the culture, but rather about how Christians should respond to it. He talks about standing firm on principles while we make sure our hearts are in the right place. He reminds us that God doesn't call us to "win," but rather to obey Him and be faithful, letting HIM take care of the outcome.

In our culture that's so hyper-politicized and crass in how folks treat each other, ReFocus serves as a good reminder and encouragement to Christians. You leave the book understanding that whatever happens, Jesus is King, but that we still have important work to do and that how we do it serves as a witness to a hurting world.

Definitely recommend it :-)

That's right. This guy is the most believable christian I've ever encountered.
He brings the real world into focus and then into re-focus as society changes
and we still want to be Jesus to the world. It's hard. Being a christian today isn't easy.

Jim Daly's REFOCUS is a breath of fresh air. It is just marvelously done. Jim confirms that the principles upon which Focus was born remain, and in fact, have been strengthened and confirmed for a new era of the ministry.

But Daly also shows that Focus on the Family has a tempo, tone, and culture-shaping ethos that fits a new era: It is a tone of civility, diplomacy, kindness, generosity of soul and spirit, and is apologetic about the first principles which remain immutable over time and through time.

In other words, REFOCUS underscores that the tempo and style of Focus on the Family in the 21st century will be God-pleasing in its beautiful and singular ministry defending and nurturing the natural family, marriage, the rearing and raising of good kids, the sanctity and dignity of every life, and the calling of adoption, foster care, and orphan care.

In sum, REFOCUS builds the blue print for how American evangelicalism will navigate a new century, and led by a man whose vision, mission, and calling - indeed his vocation - is rooted in those beautiful words of Saint Peter: "..that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."

REFOCUS arrives at exactly the right time; its mission is culture-shaping and culture-impacting in a way that is God-pleasing. At this cultural moment, there could not be a more important and more worthwhile read.

Great book for the true Christian who wants to be like Christ. Jim has a Christian heart for all people. He is right, we can't forget that we don't need to change our world through politics but through the hearts of the people. The Truths of the Bible must be our conscience not the world view. Thanks to Jim for his personal experiences he reveals to us in this book.

This book is written by Jim Daly who is with Focus on the Family. In his writing he is trying to get across our responsibility as Christians to show the love of Christ to those around us. His approach is one of looking at Christ and following His example to those who disagreed with Him or who were not people most around Him would associate with.

I gave this book 4/5 stars. Overall this was an average book and I thought his writing came across a little too preachy. I did not agree with all he said and did put the book down and do some Bible searching of my own to compare his notes with what I read. That said I did like parts of the book. There were some great examples and thoughtful paragraphs that if you really study them could help you in your struggles with loving those around you.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Challenging and thoughtful presentation of tough concepts. Jim Daly shows his loving and compassionate heart for those who have deeply held views that are different from his. He presents a model of Christian love rarely seen in this world.
