I cannot express enough how life changing this book is! If you really are ready to be serious in your relationship with God, then your first goal should be to become Christlike. I love that this book is not full of the author's opinions, instead Mr. Berg shows us how Biblical change is accomplished only through God's word! This is a book you need to read more than once. I am starting to read it again and use the companion study with my daily reading, Taking Time to Change. Order this book, open your Bible everyday alongside it and get ready for Biblical growth!
My husband was able to sit under the author while in college and this book is a wonderful example of great godly principles.If you're looking for a book to grow deeper as a Christian, this is the book for you! Very informative and uses multiple biblical references.
If you are a Christian man, or if you want to be a man living for Christ, this book must be read before you do anything else. To be like Christ is our ultimate goal, and Dr. Berg shows you how to do that. I did not do the small group study, but I would think this book would be powerful with its reliance on Scripture and its practical application of those Scriptures to every man's life. Dr. Berg does rely upon his experiences and education in child rearing to make his points, but that helps us to understand the principles he is sharing from Scripture.
