Using Scripture, personal stories, and examples from Christians who left a lasting legacy, Ingram offers practical steps for becoming great in all areas of life, in spiritual growth, family, relationships, and career.
The lead chapter is perhaps the most valuable, underscoring the Old Testament message of, "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). Ingram talks about the negative effects of modern news broadcasts, seductive advertising, and depressing online material. He refers to Paul's advice about the renewing of the mind and quotes Scripture in regard to a list of positive concepts with the admonition to "think about these things" (Philippians 4:8) There is nothing original here from Ingram, but it is valid nonetheless.
Another chapter deals with finding positive people in our lives to have as mentors. It spends a lot of time on the topic of forgiving our parents for not being perfect, praising them more for whatever they did right, and moving on with life. (I'll confess, I sat down and wrote my mother a long letter after finishing that chapter.)
My personal favorite is chapter six, which talks about becoming a risk-taker. The examples of Esther before the king (Esther 5), Peter stepping out on the water (Matthew 14:22-33), and Paul as a convert going back into the Jewish temple (Acts 21), are radical steps of faith. The dangers were obvious, but the results were staggering. Ingram tells us to take the leap of faith, to get out of our comfort zones, to let God do His work through us. It is both scary and exuberating.
Don't expect to find breakthrough concepts here, especially in a book that confesses in its very title that it is emulating someone else's idea. Still, there are truths here, and they are organized systematically into good reading order. Good to Great in God's Eyes reminds readers of things worth being nudged about. Dr. Dennis E.
