Publisher's Description

Change is hard. It’s even harder without practical guidance on how to do it.

From author James MacDonald:

"I have written this book to actually help people change. It's for people who desperately want to change, a practical ’How-to’ manual… The truths in this book are stained with my own tears of trying and failing and trying again to be the man God wants me to be. So I have written this with the urgency of a loving heart for you and your situation…

James MacDonald is serious about the business of change according to God's Word, and he walks you through it in three phases:

  • The Preparation for Change: choosing the right method and partnering with God to select the areas you need to see change
  • The Process of Change: exploring the biblical method of saying no to sinful patterns and yes to the things God desires for you
  • The Power to Change: knowing how to experience the power of God personally and continuously

Includes study questions, exercises, and single sentence chapter summaries

    Lord, Change Me
    March 11, 2015

    I recently finished "Lord, Change Me" by James MacDonald. That is a prayer that I often pray so the title of the book is what first caught my attention. MacDonald does a thorough job of explaining what true, Biblical change is, and then he explains practical ways on how to make that change happen. The book is divided into 3 parts:

    1) The Preparation for Change

    2) The Process of Change

    3) The Power to Change

    The third part was my favorite, because I think it's the most important. He shows how without the third part, the first two don't really matter.

    I did not give this book 5 stars, because I felt that MacDonald included some periphery topics in this book that were completely unnecessary and did not add anything to his main argument. I did not agree with him on those minor topics and felt he should not have included them.

    Overall, however, I thought this was an excellent book, full of Scripture, that points people to Jesus Christ for ultimate change.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. The opinions in this review, however, are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

    Unless you're truly serious about changing, don't read Lord, Change Me by James MacDonald. This highly practical yet challenging book is designed for Christians frustrated with trying to change time and again, only to experience failure. . .again. In this heavily scripture-focused book, MacDonald helps readers discover the truth about lasting and radical personal transformation.

    "The reason why you are here is because God wants to display His power and splendor through your life," says MacDonald, "and if you realize that you are not doing it very well, then you truly understand why He wants to change you."

    Lord, Change Me is divided into three parts: The Preparation for Change, The Process of Change, and The Power to Change. In the first section, MacDonald deals with faulty methods of change and helps readers discover the right method. Readers also prayerfully identify areas where they need to change. In "The Process of Change," MacDonald describes the biblical process for change and leads believers to repent, to believe they can change and to have faith that sin's power over them has been broken. In the final section, MacDonald leads readers to tap into the power to change in order to experience consistent victory over sin.

    The study questions included throughout the book challenge readers to put into action what they are learning about God and His desire for their personal transformation. MacDonald includes three kinds of questions at the end of each chapter. "Teacher Questions" are aimed at the mind, helping readers to improve their understanding of specific matters related to personal change. "Prophet Questions" are designed to confront readers with language that's direct and concise, and "Shepherd Questions" promote hope.

    Additionally, each chapter ends with a very practical section, "Let's Get to Work." These exercises help readers implement what they are learning so they see the true, lasting change for which they're hoping. Each chapter closes with a prayer that leads readers directly to the heart of God, verbalizing what they're learning and connecting with the One who gives the power to change.

    Heavily based on the Scriptures, the book is practical, challenging, encouraging, and hopeful. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels they're stuck in a rut and who hungers for true, lasting transformation. Be warned, though. Lord, Change Me is only for those serious about change. It's hard work. It takes honesty, careful examination, and a willingness to surrender all to God so that He can "add your greatest areas of defeat and frustration to His record" of amazing stories of transformation.

    This is one volume I plan to reread, working slowly, carefully and honestly through it so I can experience victory in some areas of previous defeat in my own life. It's also a book I plan to keep handy to use in small group situations as I disciple other Jesus followers who are hungry for authentic and radical transformation.

    James MacDonald asks this question five different ways in his invitation at the beginning of his book, "Lord Change Me". The intention of this book is to help people transform—"a kind of do-it-yourself surgery". It is about becoming radically different. It involves work on our part. If you really desire to change, MacDonald's guidance can help you discover "the areas in your life that need change, the biblical process for change, and the power behind lasting change."

    A mere reading of "Lord Change Me" is not enough. It must be processed. Studied. Worked. Each chapter will take about an hour to read and work through the exercises. Properly completed, you should recognize some noticeable differences in your life. Skipping over the work will only result in wasting your time. If you aren't serious about making changes in your life to be obedient to God, then this book isn't for you. If you truly desire to follow God's plan for your life, this book will be an invaluable resource to help you achieve the joy that God intends for your life.

    I am a professional Christian counselor. This book is simply the best one I've found regarding how to be involved in and do Christ-centered and Holy Spirit-driven personal change. It is both challenging and practical. James MacDonald is a powerful speaker and his writing is equally as powerful. Check this book out if you've been unable to break the sin-confess-sin-confess cycle of attempted change. James MacDonald will show you the Biblical way out so that you can make real change in your life.
