I’m going to go ahead and tell you this will be a very biased book review. Here’s why: I’m a huge fan of Mark Batterson. As a pastor, communicator, blogger, writer and friend. He’s one of those guys that when you are around him, you can’t help but get excited about what God’s doing. I so pumped that he is our first session for Backstage Leadership starting in January. So, now for book thoughts…
Mark opens the book with an honest look into his own heart and relationship with Christ. He says it was lacking some of the joy and passion it once had. (I connected immediately) Here’s a quote I love from that section:
I knew that getting back what I once had meant getting back to the basics
That is what the whole book is about: helping you get back to the basics.
As with all of Mark’s previous books, I would highly recommend it for your learning and reading enrichment. I did get an advance copy of the book for free, but for the record I would have bought this book and read it regardless. If you’re looking for a good book over the Christmas break or to start the year with, you need to check it out here.
