I love it when God sends the right book at the right time, and that is exactly what happened with "Surrender". I think there are times in my life that I understood what surrendering to Christ meant, and I think I have given Him all. While reading "Surrender", I realized that surrendering is a journey. There are always deeper levels of selfishness to overcome. Surrender doesn't necessarily mean giving something up outwardly first, but it it starts with the bowing of the knee so to speak in our heart to Christ. I also realized that the more I try to hold onto and control even the smallest of things, that I ultimately come under bondage to it, and it becomes one more burden to carry. Christ wants to carry our burdens, and live a life of peace. Surrender is the only answer. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends, and keep a copy for myself to look at in the future. It is truly a valuable book. I would also highly recommend "Surrender" for a small group, or a book club. DeMoss has a discussion guide at the back of the book for each chapter. It is a fairly easy read, that could be covered in eight weeks.
