A Proven Path to a Thriving Walk with Christ
Does your relationship with God seem broken? Full of silence and distance? Do you ever want more than just an "okay" walk with Christ? After conducting extensive research, including more than 70,000 surveys, Back to the Bible leaders Arnie Cole and Michael Ross found many Christians feel the same way. But they also discovered the secrets that help believers grow and thrive spiritually. And they want to share what they discovered with you.
Filled with honest stories and real-life examples, Unstuck provides you with practical and proven ways to encounter Scripture daily, connect with God, and revitalize your faith. Stop just going through the motions and learn how to tap into God's Word to live out the life He desires for you.
"As Christians we often talk about 'spiritual growth,' but for many it's a concept that remains elusive. With Unstuck, Michael Ross and Arnie Cole offer a blueprint for genuine growth in grace, grounded in the life-changing power of Scripture."
--Jim Daly, President Focus on the Family
"I just finished Unstuck and felt a kindred spirit as my heart raced in many places. Within a few pages I found myself lurching for a pen to underline and started folding corners. This book is outstanding, excellent in truth, very well written, and convincing."
--Patrick Morley, founder and CEO of Man in the Mirror

That concern was addressed quickly. And their statement from research was very straightforward... "Christians grow through relationship, not religion. We stall when we focus on impersonal formulas and empty habits." (pg. 49). Ok... I'm liking the book so far...
Unstuck is divided into sections to explain why change is needed in our lives, what the authors and the research found works, and how to apply it to our lives. In their words, Part 1 is Why We Stall Out, Part 2 is The Powered by Four Solution, and Part 3 is Engage, Untangle...Grow! Cole and Ross explain the Powered Four Solution as engaging (rather than just read) the Bible at least four times a week with this mind-set - "God's Word to us is how we hear from and share two-way conversation with our Creator. It's our personal connection...Relationships need consistent connections in order to grow" (pg. 139). They urge us not to approach our devotional times with a primary focus of info-gathering. However, we need to engage and look for connection, relationship and spiritual transformation. The last part is very practical and will be a resource that will need to be updated as you grow in your walk with Christ.
I throughly enjoyed Unstuck and would highly recommend it. It was a challenging, inspiring read that will change lives through the power of God's Word. The personal stories that are included - real and honest, not glossed over - are a perfect addition to the books goal of pointing the reader to an honest relationship with Jesus.
Wow! I am so glad that God placed this book in my path! I have highlighted and dog-eared so many pages, but I still plan to go through it again in about a month.
