Because what if the easy life isn't always the best life?
What if living a truly full life means so much more
than just "believing" in Jesus--and what if
He promised you it would be worth it?
When I first read the description of No Easy Jesus on Tyndale's website I knew I NEEDED to read the book. But, I am not a non-fiction gal. I LOVE to read just not books about real life. So, venturing into this book was going to be a challenge. But even more than that, this book was calling me to face some issues that had crept into my life over the last several years.
Those of you that know me know some of the struggles our family has faced over the last five or six years. Those of you that don't, probably don't need to. But suffice it to say, I had chosen to take the "Easy Jesus" path because frankly, the Hard Jesus was just too hard. I was tired of it. I was let down by Him. I was disappointed and frustrated with what He had asked of me and my family.
However, I knew I was not happy. I knew I needed something more than Easy Jesus. Which is why I requested Jason Mitchell's book to review.
Did I like the book? Yes.
Did I enjoy reading it? Yes and No
Who likes being chastised after all? (although this was NOT done in a harsh way!)
Would I recommend the book? Whole-Heartedly
My struggle is not over. This chapter in my life is still being written, edited, and rewritten. But the reminder that Jason Mitchell gave me of the necessity of following a No Easy Jesus is penetrating my heart and encouraging me to be willing to risk again. I hope it will do the same for you.
As usual, this book was provided free by the publisher, but the review is in no way influenced by that fact.
