Format: Hardcover
The subtitle for this book is "Clean Living in a Contaminated World", and it is must read material for the Body of Christ. Pastor Groeschel deals with relevant topics such as identifying false beliefs; the power of your words and thoughts; toxic behaviors, emotions, relationships and influences; healthy boundaries; legalistic religion; forgiveness and bitter roots.

Our culture is saturated with beliefs and behaviors that are counter-productive to the blessings that come from living life in a God-ordained way. We have great freedom in Christ, but many of the freedoms available to us culturally and socially do not truly bring life to us, nor do they have long-term value.

The mind is the primary battlefield for spiritual growth and transformation and this is why Soul Detox is so needed. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

"The longer we view ourselves through a distorted lens, the more likely we are to believe a distorted truth."

"We trust money to make us significant because we don't know who we are in Christ. And we believe money will make us secure because we trust money more than we trust Christ."

"You are not a victim of your thoughts. You have the power through Christ to take them captive."

"When our moods and emotional needs depend on acquiring more possession, more money, more toys, then we're in for a toxic shock when we find our hands full and our hearts empty."

"When we truly change what we believe, we'll gladly change how we behave."

"Rather than sinking into the quicksand of sin, you can swim into the clean water of God's forgiveness and cleansing love.

This book is a must read for anyone living in our culture today. It's not a list of do's and don't's to detox your soul but a close examination of what influences and emotions you are allowing to pollute your mind, will, and emotions. It will step on your toes and force you to ask yourself some really tough questions, but in the end, if you let the truth of what God is telling you shine through the book, your heart and soul will never be the same.

There are a lot of really positive reviews for this book. So I want to be careful to not insult any of them with my review. But, I politely disagree with all of the 5 star reviews.
This book is great for a newer Christian or one that needs or wants these sort of guard rails (in my opinion). If you are a believer that is seeking to stretch and grow, you may be disappointed with Soul Detox.
Again in my opinion, this is the usual Christian self-help book put out there that doesn't do much to challenge a person's walk or understanding. But you should understand that I have already done a lot of unplugging from the culture. So, this book wasn't really written to someone like me. I am looking for a book that will challenge me and give me a new perspective. A book that will make me examine how I live out my faith. And for me, the suggestion to not watch The Virgin Suicides wasn't really what I was looking for when I bought this book.

I was fortunate enough to read Soul Detox in advance and hear him preach on this subject. I can honestly say that the practical implications for me after hearing this message have shifted the way I think, react and how I want to move forward to be all that God has called me to be.

We're all under renovation and this is a great tool that not only brings to our attention the toxicity of the world we're living in but gives us practical steps on how we can detox and become all that we were meant to be.

It's a good read.

In a culture that's hyper focused on the newest diet or exercise routine, rarely do we ever talk about how to cleanse our heart. Pastor Craig writes with clarity, love & a passion for seeing your Soul forever changed. Read THIS BOOK!!

I enjoyed this book immensely! This is the first book I have read anything written by Craig Groeschel. I saw him one day with Joyce Meyer and he was talking about this book, and I'm so happy I bought it. It is not for the faint of heart, meaning...if you are not serious about change and letting go, you might not be ready for it yet. I did enjoy his writing style and the transparencies of his own sin and pride that he has dealt with. He's not preaching, but teaching. This booked helped shine a light on things in my life that God wanted me to let go of and move a level up on others. I prayed before reading asking the Holy Spirit to guide me and help me be obedient to any changes needed. And I'm so happy I did. Yeah, you need prayer and an ear to hear for this one. Does Pastor Craig, step on some toes? Yup, he does. But I've never known gain to be without some pain! Great book!

Great book and points out the areas in your life that could contaminate your soul. I think social media is one that could be hit on a little more but of course I didn't write this book. Some friends and family of mine spend hours and hours on social media and never get anything accomplished. Many of those people make fun of those who play video games. Craig offers some great humor in this book so it is not a dry read. I have suggested this book to my friends
