Sandy5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring ReadAugust 15, 2016SandyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Loved this book. It informed, inspired, humbled and challenged me to think differently about my faith. The title says it all "Unfinished: Believing is only the beginning"
WT5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ! perfect title when viewed against what Jesus said just before he died.November 23, 2015WTQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0i like this book a lot, and it has re-inspired me to share my faith more regularly. The chapter on being a "decider" vs a "disciple" really hit home and became one of those spiritual "ah ha's" for me. This book should be required reading for all Christians & all seekers who are serious about a relationship with God.
SaraG4 Stars Out Of 5UnfinishedJune 30, 2013SaraGI just finished reading Richard Stearns Unfinished. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It's a call for individuals and the church to the Great Commission. Stearns believes the American church has become too relaxed in living out their faith. He believes that we have lost our sense of urgency with the Great Commission, both as individuals and as a church. We have been left as Jesus' ambassadors in this world, but we are not rising to the mission.
My husband enjoyed his discussion of our spiritual GPS in the chapter on "Called for a Purpose" - how we need to commit, pray, prepare, obey, act and trust. I thought his chapter on "Outposts of the Kingdom" was a good chapter, referring to the church.
He also includes a study guide and shares ways we can live out our faith in the closing chapters. I would recommend this book.
(I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)
markbrayeTemiskaming Shores, Ontario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5UnfinishedJune 21, 2013markbrayeTemiskaming Shores, Ontario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4from Richard Stearns, author of the bestselling <em>The Hole In Our Gospel</em>, comes his next book <em>Unfinished</em>.
if books had taglines, like movies, <em>Unfinished</em> would have two...
"Believing is only the beginning."
"So you believe in God. Now what?"
<em>Unfinished</em> seeks to promote the proclamation and practice of the Kingdom of God. it seeks to wrestle with and answer challenging questions about our lives, careers, money, families, and purpose in life.
Stearns is an excellent storyteller and writer. he engages the Bible and the real world with passion and compassion, hoping that his readers and the Church will join in with God's mission in the world today.
<em>Unfinished</em> is a challenging read. wonderfully written, it's a thought-provoking book that will make you see and think about things differently. it may push you and make you uncomfortable, or it may affirm and confirm some things for you. it did all four for me.
