Publisher's Description

Change your attitude, change your life.

We’re very good at explaining why we’re unhappy: bad job, bad relationships, bad luck. But there’s probably a better reason: bad attitudes.

In Lord, Change My Attitude, James MacDonald shows us just how much our attitudes affect our lives. One of his bestsellers, this book is classic James: It’s clear, it’s inspiring, and it packs a punch.

Drawing from the experience of the Israelites who grumbled through the wilderness, MacDonald shows how bad attitudes rob us of joy. Coveting, complaining, and being critical are not what our hearts were made for. They were made for thankfulness, contentment, and love. Is your heart straining under the weight of a bad attitude?

Don’t read this book if you’re looking for a quick fix. Don’t read this book if you’re unwilling to change. Read it if you’re ready for a serious, inside-out attitude adjustment.

    James MacDonald has a unique way to connect with the reader. His choice of words and voice makes you feel as though you were friends. This book has been a blessing to my life. I picked this book from my book review program because I knew I could benefit from its wisdom and I was right. The attitudes we choose impact our lives significantly. MacDonald draws from the example of the Israelis wondering the desert for 40 years and their complaining, ungrateful attitude. There is a phrase that he uses throughout the book that is a powerful truth, Those who choose complaining as their lifestyle will spend a lifetime in the wilderness. The topics addressed within these pages really hit home with me. Going through some tough times for the last 5 years,God has used that time to drive gratefulness into my soul and this book helped push me further ahead in my spiritual growth. Sometimes its difficult to be thankful when everything seems to be going wrong, but complaining will only make the difficult times more difficult. There are 10 chapters total, each addressing a negative attitude with the following chapter replacing it with a good attitude.

    Replacing a complaining attitude

    ...With a thankful attitude

    Replacing a covetous attitude

    ...With an attitude of contentment

    Replacing a critical attitude

    With an attitude of love

    Replacing a doubting attitude

    ...With an attitude of faith...

    Replacing a rebellious attitude

    ...With an attitude of faith...

    Theres also a study guide that has sections for each chapter to better help grasp the material presented. I give this book, 5 stars out of 5!

    I received a copy of this book from Moody publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are entirely my own.

    Lord, Change My Attitude: Before It's Too Late by James MacDonald uses the experience of the Israelites grumblingin the wilderness to help us recognize and learn from God's attitude toward our attitudes. This book starts with an invitation and an introduction. The introduction is mandatory, as James states repeatedly. This is where he takes the time to explain his approach and lay out a blueprint for the work you're going to accomplish. The book itself is divided into 10 chapters, to be read in pairs. The first chapter of each pair covers the attitude you'll replace and the second chapter shows you what attitude to replace it with. At the back of the book, there's also a study guide with Bible readings and questions laid out to help you on your journey.

    Lord, Change My Attitude: Before It's Too Late focuses on five negative or "murmuring" attitudes to replace with praising and glorifying attitudes. Why not just cast off the bad attitudes and call it good? Because if you leave a vacancy, something will move in to fill it. And we want that something to be an ally to help us get closer to God. The attitudes addressed in this book (and the ones that you put on in its place) are as follows: complaining (thankful), covetous (contentment), critical (love), doubting (faith), rebellious (submission). Even if you don't feel like one of the relates to you (for me it was covetousness), read the chapter. Really let the storyline, definitions, and examples sink into you. Most of these feelings cover much more area and flow much deeper than we think they do.

    This book is very intense and deep. James walks you through Bible excerpts, definitions, modern analogies and comparisons, personal stories of both failure and triumph, focal questions, action plans, and prayers to help you get closer to God. I'd recommend it to anyone who realizes their attitudes aren't consistent with the path they want to be on, and are serious about making a big change for the better. As stated on the back cover, "If you're looking for easy answers or a quick fix, this book isn't for you." 5/5 stars.
