Rick Godwins Live Full, Die Empty is a short, easy-to-read book about being present in life and completing your God-given task, whatever that may be. Using Bible passages, stories, and confessionsa short prayer or confessional passages for the reader to recitethis book aims at being practical.
Pastor and founder of a mega-church, Rick Godwin writes in simplistic fashion. Each chapter begins with a brief exhortation signed by the author and ends with Amazing Keys to Your Potential. Essentially this is a book about potential: Gods and your own.
In one of the hardest hitting passages, Godwin writes, Upon discovering your true potential, you become a problem to society. You can no longer be manipulated. You can no longer be controlled. The new you has experienced a revelation: You know what God wants to do with you. That makes you a problem because youre no longer hindered by other peoples opinions. Potential is dangerous because others cant always see it.
The great failing of this book is its shoddy editing. If you can overlook problematic diction, unclear pronoun references, and awkward sentences, then you might be able to mine the gems from Godwins message. The simplistic nature in which the material is presented is also a challenge. Laden with clichés, overused metaphors, and examples most likely available in pastors books of illustrations, the message is lost in the mundane. New Christians or those who dont mind Christian-ese might enjoy this book. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com
