I found the book What Life Are You Waiting For? to be one of those books that really gets to you and makes you think hard. This book is for all those out there who feel unsatisfied with their life because something seems to be missing but you dont know what or what to do to discover it. The author tackles this topic using sports to explain key concepts, which will appeal to anyone who enjoys sports. Though I dont like sports or have much experience with sports, I had no trouble understanding what the author was trying to say in his examples. I found the author to give practical advice that was relevant to my life and I really liked how he ended each chapter. Each chapter had a summary of the chapters topic and actions that you could do in your own life. Another thing, which I really liked about the book, is that the author pointed out that if we feel discontent about something, then our attitude is not where it should be and that we need to change it. Some of the attitudes that the author wrote about was the attitude of forgiveness, obedience to God, and not walking the self-made path. I thought this was a good book because not only did it make me realize how bad my attitude can be, but that the cause of my restlessness is because of my attitude and how I need to repent of it. This is one of those books that would benefit anyone who reads it because there is something that will speak to you.
This book has many valuable lessons presented in an upbeat tone. The concepts are not difficult to grasp. Searching questions are asked, but at the same time, hope is raised. For the most part, I felt that he made his points well, and used interesting and illustrative anecdotes. I received good prodding to re-examine and strengthen my faith. This is not extremely erudite, but it is very useful, even entertaining, and I will read it again. I am sure Ill get even more out of it the second time.
This book is an absolute MUST for people who are trying to make sense of their life. Pete Hise has a way of making everything so clear and he sprinkles it throughout with humor. I got this book for a friend, but read it myself first to be sure of what I was sending. So much of it described what I had experienced in my life during my own "transformation adventure." By the way, my friend has started looking at things very differently and I see change taking place already! Thank you, Pete Hise! God has anointed this book.
I recently read a book by Pete Hise entitled, "What Life Are You Waiting For? push play for the adventure God has for you." I received a free copy from Tyndale House publishers for my review.
This book is well written and a joy to read. The basic premises struck a chord with me as I desire to see people not just follow Christ but to say yes to what God has in store. Pete does a great job of using personal examples and illustrations to convince us of the importance to say yes to God.
One of the things that I really appreciated is the format of the book. Each chapter covers removing the obstacles of life and making tough choices on following God. Following each chapter is a "getting traction" section that takes what was discussed and put handles on it for our everyday life. This is a valuable asset to our growth process. you'll have to pick up a copy and give it a go.
You'll be glad you picked up a copy And don't forget to have your Bible handy as each section takes you to a scripture. For more information visit Tyndale House Publishers.
Ever get that feeling that you're life is just on pause_you're waiting for something but you don't know what? Or maybe you feel a nagging restlessness- a sense of discontentment with where you're at in life- but you don't know why or what to do about it. In "What Life Are You Waiting For?" author Pete Hise's succinct, fast-paced tone and occasional sport analogies give cohesion to a theme that is a call to action, change, and adventure. Although this book feels as if it would resonate most deeply with a male audience, there's a depth of wisdom and spiritual acumen here for readers from any walk of life. I enjoyed the format (which features a recap and practical actions to take at the end of each chapter) and I found some great insights within these pages. For instance, I'm definitely one of those people who feels an occasional bout of restlessness and who suffers from "the grass is greener somewhere else" syndrome. So when I read Pete Hise's assertion that discontentment springs from a misplaced source of value, it really hit home for me. I can now identify that my "I need a change of_(fill in the blank)" urges are often a result of feeling a loss of value in an area where I shouldn't even be basing my sense of value. This revelation has been pivotal for me and it made this book completely worth it.
Perhaps this is an area where God wants to open your eyes as well, or maybe its one of the other topics that Hise addresses, such as the need to say "Yes!" to God, the importance and necessity of forgiveness, living on "the grace path" as opposed to "the self-made path", or understanding the love of God. Pete Hise's success in identifying different areas where we all get stalled or held back in living for God the way we want is what makes this book so widely relevant. If you know you want more in life, but you're not quite sure what more is supposed to look like or how you're supposed to live it, "What Life Are You Waiting For?" will give you biblical direction and practical encouragement in living the life that God has for.
