In Under the Sun, Andrew Gilmore dares to believe you can and must live your life this way, and he’ll show you how. What begins like a short version of Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life, then puts the finger on issues withholding you from acting on it. Fear, apathy, low self-esteem and bitterness are explored, and how to respond to these as a Christian. Mediocrity is not an option. God wants us to chose: either to be cold or hot. Gilmore then explains 4 steps to a more excellent life: identify your overarching purpose, live intentionally, with discipline, and seek out and fulfill your calling.
Next to the lives of Joseph, Daniel and Saul/Paul in the Bible, the author draws inspiration from authors like Charles Duhigg (The Power of Habit), C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity), and Steven R. Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People). You should reflect the glory of God to those in the dark. Obstacles are actually opportunities to test ourselves, to try new things, and ultimately, to triumph. So, Gilmore doesn't turn away from suffering and temptations, which will be on your way throughout life, as promised by Jesus to His followers. God is calling you. Are you ready to listen? ( )
