This book is the type of book I love to read. This book is why I got into book reviewing! I was so moved by Dr. Jefress' authenticity, as well as frank speech. Each sub-text for the chapters spoke deep into my heart and made me desire a deeper, more Christ-centered life.
I'm not blowing smoke when I say you should read this book! Buy it, borrow it or take it out of the library, I don't care...just READ IT! This book is about a spiritual heart surgery, where you allow God to give you a: FORGIVING; OBEDIENT; TRUSTING; CONTENT; SERVING and PRAYERFUL heart. As I said before, each chapter brought me to my knees. Last night as I finished this book, I was on my face before God, asking him to allow the truth of His word to be washed over my heart. I asked Him to give me a spiritual heart surgery.
God used Dr. Robert Jefress through this book for me. To be honest, I was skeptical about this book. I thought it was going to be another legalistic diatribe about how bad I am and how I need to fix myself. It was nothing of the sort. It was a book in which God did indeed convict me, but also showed how dependent upon Him I need to be, rather than depending on myself. We can't change our hearts Jefress says, but we do have the choice to allow Christ to do so as well as the choice to continue to choose into living this life alongside His Holy Spirit.
I received a free copy of this book as well. I was going to give it away for free on my blog, but it was such a good book that I had to give it to my brother!
