Publisher's Description

Evangelist Greg Laurie calls all Christians back to radical New Testament living in his latest offering, Let God Change Your Life.
 
Imagine what it would have been like to be a follower of Jesus; first-century Christians walked away from their old lives just to be where He was. What they learned, sitting at His feet, was discipleship. And when His work on earth was done, first-century Christians took His words and example and spread out, teaching the gospel to everyone.
            The good news is that we, too, can participate in this lifestyle. Laurie drills it down in three simple ideas: get to know Jesus, follow His plan for discipleship, and use it to tell others what we know. Laurie’s tone is clear, direct, and biblical.

    Let God Change Your Life

    Greg Laurie

    Published by David Cook

    Source: Review B & B Media

    Discipleship 101, written neatly and concisely into an easy to read and understand novel. Written from a Christian who has been in the world, and realized the vacuum sized hole in his heart for God, Greg Laurie uses the Word of God and breaks it down into step by step instructions for the new believer.

    The book walks the reader through the need for a relationship with Christ as the sole way to God. Explains how easily you can accept Christ into your life, and how to get ready for the changes that will follow. Often new Christians are left in a lurch without a guideline of where to go from here. Greg Laurie's book would be an awesome discipleship tool for an older Christian to use to encourage a new believer. It would not only teach the new Christian, it would reignite the torch in the older Christian as well.

    Fantastic examples, clear writing, and true to life skills are found in Let God Change your Life. I highly recommend that Christians have a copy of this book to give out to new believers or seekers!

    I received a copy of this book from B & B media in exchange for an honest review

    Greg Laurie, in his newest book "Let God Change Your Life," calls us to return to radical New Testament Christian living using the three critical components of knowing God, discipleship and making Him known. Biblically, the radical Christian life is the normal Christian life, Laurie asserts.

    The first section, "How to Know God," consists of pieces of Laurie's personal testimony and teaches what it means to know God and how to be a part of the kingdom of God. Laurie follows with a section on the importance of discipleship in today's culture through Bible Study, prayer and worship. He concludes with one of the best discussions on evangelism I've read in a long time. He stresses the importance of talking to non-believers about Christ in healthy ways and offers helpful suggestions and encouragement.

    As Americans, we are fortunate in being able to live out our faith openly and being able to talk about our faith to those around us. The early Christians did not have this luxury nor do many people around the world. We must use this time and our freedom to tell others what our Christian faith has meant to us and what Christ's love can do for them—freedom from a life of sin and the precious gift of eternal life.

    Is your Christian life challenging? If not, you are not living life the way God intended you to live it. Do you have purpose and direction, or are you depressed and afraid? Laurie will force you to examine your life and your faith. His words will convict you and when you finish this book a choice will be made. Either you will let God change your life or you will return to the same mediocre existence missing out on everything God has planned for you.

    Greg Laurie is Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, CA, and hosts the radio program, "A New Beginning."

    Basic Christian Doctrine That We All Need To Hear

    From the introduction: "How can we expect to fulfill the Great Commission to go into all the world and make disciples if we don't know what it means to be a disciple ourselves?"

    To me this is a great question. It is probably a question that many in the Church cannot adequately answer, because in all honesty they do not know what they believe, much less what it means to be a disciple of Christ Jesus.

    In Let God Change Your Life Greg Laurie focuses on basic 101 Christianity.

    When Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 28:19-20 NIV,

    "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

    When Jesus asked them to, "go and make disciples." It was not a request, but a command. It is also a command for us as well, in telling and in living out our lives the faith that we profess in Jesus Christ.

    Greg Laurie leads the reader through basic Christian doctrine for the goal of spreading the Gospel to others.

    Yes, there were things I read in this book that I knew, but I was convicted about a few things as well. Conviction is not a word that grown-ups like, it makes us feel defensive like little children before an angry parent. But, conviction is a good thing, it is actually freeing, and if we remain teachable and not defiant, we can learn something that will produce the fruit of maturity.

    There were several great quotes from the book such as:

    "For every person there will come a last meal, a last breath, and of course, last words. And in many ways, what we say in the end is a real insight into who we were in life, what we stood for, and what we lived for. Generally we die as we lived." page 47

    "Many Christians never grow up spiritually. They still act like spiritual infants." page 76

    "Jesus was not calling people to a marginal belief in Him; He called for complete and total commitment...Some people respond only to certain aspects of His message. They pick and choose what appeals to them and pretty much ignore the rest." page 78-79

    And Greg Laurie stated we must "die to self." See Romans 14:7-8

    I am reminded of a quote from Ed McCully in the book Beyond Gates of Splendor,

    "I have one desire now to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it."

    That quote is the definition of living for Christ Jesus. We live every area of our life for Him and for His Gospel.

    Greg Laurie not only leads the reader through basic Christianity, but a short course on apologetics and on witnessing.

    When witnessing to others he leads the reader through what to say, how to approach, and what not to say---mainly referring to a righteous attitude.

    There are points in the book where Greg makes light-hearted statements.

    There are several stories he shares from his own life.

    At no point did I feel he was off Biblically.

    He is bold, bolder that many in the Christian community in writing about words that have taken a "back seat" so to speak.

    He encourages us to read and study the Bible, do not depend on someone else to tell us what is in it.

    He encourages us to depend on the Holy Spirit to share the Gospel message with others, we do not depend on our own initiative and strength.

    He encourages us to grow-up in our Christian faith and to not remain as a babe still being fed by a bottle.

    I loved this book!

    I plan on reading it again!

    This would be an excellent book for a group at Church or in small group homes, and of course for individual study.

    I felt Greg Laurie organized the book well.

    He expressed himself well so as any level of Christian would understand.

    I do think that the back cover of the book could have described more about the books strength in basic Christian doctrine. There is just so much more this book has to offer than what was on the back cover.

    Thank you to David C. Cook and B and B Media for my free review copy.
