Relentless: I wont relent

I just finished reading this book a few days ago. I got it in the mail last week and i finished it within a few days. I liked it but did not love it. Thats kind of how I feel with all John Beveres books. I love listening to him preach but his writings i just like. This book had some really good points and if you are a person who is going through some hardships then this is a great book for you to read and get encouraged.

I really liked how the book incorporated scriptures. I realize that many books use scripture but this book has many good scriptures and talks them through really well. I love how the book pushes the fact that faith and redemption is only found in Jesus; not just in what we do. We cannot make ourself become pure and be changed but its God who purifies and changes us.

“God is Able”. This is the clear thought of the book. Even though we are not able and we dont see the end result; HE IS ABLE! God shows up.

“Are we living beneath that for which Jesus paid a very high price?” Great question that the book raised. Similar to the question, are the things you are living for worth Jesus Christ dying for? the book challenges the thinking that some of us who call ourselves christians are living lower then our callings.

I am glad I read the book. I will look back at the book for references but it was not great.
