It is very interesting book. The author talks about what made you Decide to take on this subject and this book. She then goes on to tell us that everyone questions that question about 98%of each and everyone of us do not ask that question and that 2% of us ask that specific question. I have to do for free with that. I do not ever question if Jesus is worth it - 100% of me has no doubt. Other than that she concentrates on Hebrews because they question the same thing. She did a good job if you were questioning that question. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; my opinions in this review are all my own.

Chasing Butterflies3 Stars Out Of 5Style too personal, otherwise okayOctober 31, 2017Chasing ButterfliesQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2In "Is Jesus Worth it?", Stacey Thacker goes through the book of Hebrews. With many examples from her personal experience, she illustrates the words form Hebrews and wants to encourage and excitewomen to study scripture and ignite their faith.
Overall, I liked this book and also really appreciated the study guide at the end of the book. However, there were a few things that hindered me from completely enjoying it. Her explanations of Scripture were very understandable and not too far-fetched, but some of the examples felt a little too trivial compared to the experiences of the people in the Bible. For example, "Hold onto Jesus like my kids hold onto my hand in the shopping mall so they don't get lost", in my opinion, is an unfortunate comparison that does not communicate the importance of holding onto faith.
Her style also was a little too much for me. She always calls the reader "sweet girlfriend" and often assumes that the reader shares her interests and values as well as repeatedly saying things like "since we are now girlfriends". She assumes a familiarity that simply wasn't there for me. I would have liked it better if the author hadn't come so uncomfortably close. But this is only my personal opinion. If you're okay with the style, you might really like it.
So I would recommend this book if you don't mind that the style is very personal. If you can, I would definitely recommend reading an excerpt before buying it.
Laura5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!September 1, 2017LauraQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Another great title by Stacey Thacker! She writes like we're sitting down for coffee and sharing honest stories about life. And then we go deep into God's Word, walking through the book of Hebrews. This is a great Bible study for an individual or for a group.
I received an advance reader's copy in exchange for my honest review. (But I already knew I wanted to read it before receiving a copy!)
Trisha Goddard5 Stars Out Of 5I will NEVER look at the book of the Hebrews the same again!August 21, 2017Trisha GoddardQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In "Is Jesus Worth It?", Stacey shares as one girlfriend to another how knowing Who Jesus is changes everything. He is worth seeking, worth trusting, worth following, worth drawing near, worth listening too, worth knowing intimately, worth holding fast, worth our worship, worth the sacrifice. Jesus is worth it all.
Stacey quotes, "With no one to turn to but Jesus, I found Him profoundly faithful and deeply tender. Jesus is truly all you need." I related to the personal story that she shared, and I could tell you personally stories when I have found myself alone, with absolutely no one to turn to but Jesus, yet in those moments, that is where I have found my faith deepen. My love for Him. My prayer life increase. Him and Him alone. In the valley, but not alone. He is enough.
While reading "Is Jesus Worth It?", I laughed. I cried. I desired to sit down at the feet of Jesus and soak in more of His Word - to know Him better and make Him known. I believe that some of the most encouraging words from my sweet girlfriend, Stacey, were, "I am not giving up on this race of faith. I'm going to run even if I'm bruised because I know without a shadow of doubt that Jesus is worth it. And if I happen to run by and see you have fallen to the ground, I will be the one who shakes you by the shoulders and says, Come on, get up...we have to finish this. And then we will look forward to the finish line, together." I literally had to read that section twice, because tears had filled my eyes. This is what a girlfriend does. This is what a member of the body of Christ does. Walks alongside another. Encourages another to press on. Finishes together. There is no one trying to out do another, no one left behind. Together, we are looking forward to the prize - Christ. He is worth it!
I will never look at the book of Hebrews the same again. Stacey's style of writing is one of my absolute favorites. She intertwines personal stories with the truths from the book of Hebrews. I am not one to read a book twice, but after 9 pages of notes reading through it a first time, I am already re-reading it a second time in order to soak in (and be reminded again) of the truth that "Yes, Jesus is worth it." And it is definitely on my "have-to-read-yearly" list. I highly recommend this book for any girlfriend ready to dig into the book of Hebrews and answer the question for themselves, "Is Jesus Worth It?"
I received a complimentary review copy by the publisher and author as a part of the launch team. This review is my honest opinion.
