I was drawn to buy many of these books and to give them out and to have a group meet each week to discuss Mark Batterson's book and thank you Jesus was God right about this one... All in is getting fantastic reviews by everyone who is reading it and some have even read it all cover to cover... It truly has a powerful impact on each individual... It makes you understand just how close we could be but aren't... I am so looking forward to the first book group gathering to see what each individual thinks about it personally... To see how it has impacted their individual thoughts, life and spiritual well being... ... 5 STARS for ALL IN ...
changed my life. loved this book. also read circle maker LOVED IT. now reading The Grave Robber. Love how he gives so much insights in his books. I've have his next book ordered If. Can't wait to read it.
I am enthralled by Batterson's creative use of language. His writing ability intrigues me; it has to be a gift straight from God. I was as anxious to finish this book as any novel. However, the skillful composition is secondary to the challenge he presents us: "it's time to quit expecting Jesus to follow you and make the decision to follow Him". It motivated me to get on my knees. I am so glad C. Billingsley recommended it on Facebook. I am recommending the book to all my friends and to our Sunday School class for a 4-session study.
For the month of January, the church I go to has been using this book as our series for the new year. We go over the pastor's sermon and use of this book in our connect groups, and the results have been life changing. We recognize our faults, we understand the sacrifices needed in order to become All In for God so that we can be All Out for God! I really recommend this book for everyone. It really puts life into perspective.
This is a excellent book that is well written. Its format is an easy read for those who don't usually read books (me) and I'm certain a quick read for those who love to read books. You pick up snapshots of history that are then correlated to a story in scripture with real time applications for every situation in life! Amazing! Can't wait to read again! Burn The Ships!
