the book is made up of short, real stories. easy to read one story at a time. gave them as Christmas presents to a few non- believers. yet to hear any feedback, but believe that it will make a difference in someone's life.
I Am Second by Doug Bender and Dave Sterrett is a collection of stories about men and women who have found their lives changed by Jesus Christ. Some of these people are famous professionals, some are pastors, and some are just every day moms and dads but they all share the same common theme. They were brought to the lowest of lows and when they were at bottom they realized that Jesus had more for them. They began to live for Him and make Him first and themselves second.
This book was an easy read. Each story is divided into it's own so you can read it individually. There is a bit for everyone. Some of the stories were not ones I could relate to because I have not experienced the same thing. I found other stories to be more relatable for me. What I liked about it is that it's honest and real. It shows how everyone, famous or not, in the public eye or not, struggles is not perfect yet through the grace and love of Christ we all can be forgiven.
This book would be a great way to introduce a relationship with Jesus with a non Christian. It would be particularly good for me as it's not frilly and girly per say, and also good for those "tough guys" out there. It is a good tool to show that we all need Jesus to be first in our lives.
I am Second is a powerful book. Jam-packed with emotional testimonies of people who got to a point in their lives where they hit bottom and declared themselves "second" and God first, you cannot help but be awestruck at the power of God in how he transformed their lives.
