Book Review: All In by Mark Batterson

All In by Mark Batterson is a great book. He opens strong with the one-way missionaries stories, and finish strong with a challenge not to hold out on God, knowing God will not hold out on you. Throughout the book he provides biblical wisdom with personal testimonies and stories from Christians past that spark the reader’s imagination to think what God could do through them if they would simply make themselves open and available to Him. Again, this is a really good book I would recommend to anyone struggling with being fully devoted to Jesus.

Book Review: Fight by Craig Groeschel

Recently, I traveled on a plane for 16 hours and had plenty of time to read. A buddy lent me a copy of Fight by Craig Groeschel and told me I would enjoy it, which I did. Fight is a book that examines the life of Sampson and challenges men to live the life they were intended to live. He calls for belief, faith, prayer and purity, among other things in his call to fight for righteousness. As Groeschel always does, he makes the truth of God’s word simple while providing easy instructions to apply God’s Word to one’s life. I enjoyed his steps to God’s power, his insights on dealing with lust, and his call to discipline. Although this was not a book I intended to read, I am grateful to have read it and would recommend to a man in need of a pep talk!
