Written by Jim Daly, the compassionate leader of Focus on the Family, ReFocus inspires and motivates Christians to transcend political agendas and partisan battles and instead interact with others in a way that will consistently reveal the heart of God to a desperately hurting world.
Our culture has become painfully polarized, often hindering relationships with neighbors, colleagues, and the very people who need to discover the love of Jesus Christ. Remembering that we are foremost citizens of heaven serving a loving Father, we who call ourselves followers of Christ can once again be known by our love.
But how? In what context and through what means? How can we tear down the walls that divide our culture, our neighborhoods and workplaces and families, in this increasingly contentious world?
Drawing on a rich variety of true stories and sources both historical and contemporaryfrom behind the scenes in todays halls of power, to moving accounts from church history, to powerful breakthroughs in Dalys own life and ministryDaly challenges us to reclaim our responsibility, and our privilege, as Gods sons and daughters.
As followers of Jesus with his humility and compassion as our model, ReFocus: Living a Life that Reflects Gods Heart demonstrates how Christians can show the world an inexplicable taste of grace with no agenda other than to reveal the heart of God as the loving Abba father he is.

I've struggled with the knowledge that the church seems to have failed to be the light in this dark world. We have neglected to pass the torch, to emit a beam of forgiveness, and show forth the love of Christ. The author challenges the reader to reconsider long-held views and to adopt a different approach to those who oppose us. I am totally convinced that the encouragement to do as Jim Daly has suggested is exactly what is needed.
IreneUnited States4 Stars Out Of 5About showing love to othersJanuary 20, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book is written by Jim Daly who is with Focus on the Family. In his writing he is trying to get across our responsibility as Christians to show the love of Christ to those around us. His approach is one of looking at Christ and following His example to those who disagreed with Him or who were not people most around Him would associate with.
I gave this book 4/5 stars. Overall this was an average book and I thought his writing came across a little too preachy. I did not agree with all he said and did put the book down and do some Bible searching of my own to compare his notes with what I read. That said I did like parts of the book. There were some great examples and thoughtful paragraphs that if you really study them could help you in your struggles with loving those around you.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
