    I found the two authors to be very transparent a good thing but I also found them to be full of themselves I agree with the books encouraging to fast, a very forgotten discipline in the church Today, but I think these two men wore it as a badge of honor rather than individual discipline meant to foster intimacy with God Matthew 6 16,18 When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting Truly I tell you, they have received th I found the two authors to be very transparent a good thing but I also found them to be full of themselves I agree with the books encouraging to fast, a very forgotten discipline in the church Today, but I think these two men wore it as a badge of honor rather than individual discipline meant to foster intimacy with God Matthew 6 16,18 When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting Truly I tell you, they hav...

    I ll admit that I am overly critical with Christian books It is not because I dislike them or I found them unnecessary but most of them follow the same format There are many books that are full of cliches and the content is not saying anything that I have not heard before It is rare for me to really enjoy one, but there are...

    Well, it was blessedly short The premise or at least what I believe is the premise isn t bad Christians should be faractive in their faith, get up and DO something However, the authors don t really seem to give solid ways that people should do that there are vague references to paint your neighbor s house and a commercial for what I take to be the author s own ministry to sponsor a child, but the lists of what ordinary people should do were generally along the lines of pray, read Well, it was blessedly short The premise or at least what I believe is the premise isn t bad Christians should be faractive in their faith, get up and DO something However, the authors don t really seem to give solid ways that people should do that there are vague references to paint your neighbor s house and a commercial for what I take to be the author s own ministry to sponsor a child, but the lists of what ordinary people should do were generally along the lines of pray, read the Bible and fast The first two are hardly revolutionary, and the idea of fasting was given short shrift, which is...

    I enjoyed the style of the book the two authors took turns writing and it was interspersed with a lot of Scripture I liked the main themes that ran through the book, themes of digging into the Word on a regular basis, fasting, prayer, and becoming a disciple of Christ There were a couple of places where one of the authors came down really hard on a person who wondered why they didn t have a clear gospel presentation on their website and a pastor who wantedinformation about their tour st I enjoyed the style of the book the two authors took turns writing and it was interspersed with a lot of Scripture I liked the main themes that ran through the book, themes of digging into the Word on a regular basis, fasting, prayer, and becoming a disciple of Christ There were a couple of places where one of the authors came down really hard on a p...

    It s hard for me to evaluate this book I spent my time agreeing with the authors and being angry with them simultaneously It was a bizarre feeling that I didn t appreciate, but I believe was needed to rock my comfortable world.The gist of the book is that Christians are too lazy in their faith and are not getting out and doing what they are meant to be doing We are paralyzed about failing or have a pride issue or whatever, that we don t do anything I find this timely in my life Just days ag It s hard for me to evaluate this book I spent my time agreeing with the authors and being angry with them simultaneously It was a bizarre feeling that I didn t appreciate, but I believe was needed to rock my comfortable world.The gist of the book is that Christians are too lazy in their faith and are not getting out and doing what they are meant to be doing We are paralyzed about failing or have a pride issue or whatever, that we don t do anything I find this timely in my life Just days ago when I was writing in my journal I wrote about feeling paralyzed in making decisions for my future So, I know that ...

    Strong, solid Christians need to get off their asses and change the world talk from two guys who are dedicated enough to the concept that they launched their own ministry reaching out to save pornographers Gross and Mahon trade off in dialogue Mahon in particular gets personal in discussing his Born Again Lazy tendencies and how he finally shook them off.One thing I found interesting frustrating is that while it seemed like the 40 day cross country Starving Jesus fast and motivational Strong, solid Christians need to get off their asses and change the world talk from two guys who are dedicated enough to the concept that they launched their own ministry reaching out ...

    More than anything, this book bugged me at times It wasn t nearly as get out and get dirty loving people and serving them for Jesus like Claiborne, Yankowski, etc Instead, they talked a lot about confronting sin, which got a lot of talk but not a lot of discussion of the perspective they both come from they seem to both be pretty conservative evangelicals They talk a lot about personal faith, personal relationship, and not being lazy in the faith, all of which are valuable things but need More than anything, this book bugged me at times It wasn t nearly as get out and get dirty loving people and serving the...

    Never quite understood the title but eventually got the messageThis book was a little hard to follow at first because two guys are writing it separately, bouncing back and forth within each chapter The intro says it is a conversation between them, but all of it is directed at the reader.If I d only gotten through the first part I might have given it two out three stars For me, it got better, andcohesive, as it went along I think the general over all message is good and important get ou Never quite understood the title but eventually got the messageThis book was a little hard to follow at first because two guys are writing it separately, bouncing back and forth within each chapter The intro says it is a conversation between them, but all of it is directed at the reader.If I d only gotten through the f...

    I definitely feel challenged after reading this book I like the writing style of having two writers take turns presenting their ideas I don t like how the book doesn t really give the reader many tangible ideas of what to do to act out his or her faith Not everyone can fast for forty days while going on a speaking tour chained to a pew They also don t get into what you re supposed to do while fasting Go about your normal day Sit in a closet and pray the whole time I ve got the challenge, I definitely feel challenged...
