This book could use some work. I think it actually would be better if it was adapted to an app rather than a book. The way it was written, perhaps it should have been adapted to a workbook flow from the beginning? Its good if you really want to examine your life. The only thing is after a while the main message can become a bit monotonous. I read this part of a group and it got a little bit boring. Good start, would love to see it expanded into something with a bit more meat.

If you have patience and you really are in a state where you just are thinking about the meaning of your life from a Christian perspective, you probably will enjoy this book a lot. But if you aren't at that stage, it just is hard to get by the third week. ( )

I'm being generous giving this four stars. It's more like a 3.5 or 3.75 star rating, but I'll be gracious (if you can pardon the pun).

If I compare this to [b:The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth am I Here for?|819314|The Purpose Driven Life What on Earth am I Here for?|Rick Warren|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1178666972s/819314.jpg|2265235], which I've read multiple times, it pales even more. While not a 'bad' read by any means, it missed the mark with me because I already live this way, as best I can. And, as the authors pointed out in the final chapter, that's the beauty of living, really living, a Christian life - you shouldn't have to change what you're already doing right because you are striving towards Christ's example.

I definitely recommend this book to seekers or new or struggling Christians. In fact, I'm going to give my copy away to a likely prospect in the hopes of helping them see the light and spread the eternal good news. ( )

It is not uncommon for terminally ill people to change their lives in radical ways. The premise of this Christian self-help/study guide is that we don't need a fatal diagnosis to do the same.
If you're looking for case studies of the terminally ill or for a checklist-based how-to book, this is not for you. This book is about self-reflection and attitude adjustment. It utilizes four principles: to live passionately, to love completely, to learn humbly, and to leave boldly.
Many of my high-priority goals cannot be achieved in thirty days. However, that doesn't mean that my attitude and outlook cannot be changed and that is where I found this book helpful. This book is a good introspective tool and it's very motivational. A good read for January when people usually take stock of their lives anyway.
I wanted to mention that I didn't care for the bible translation that was used in the text. I guess I'm overly fond of the NIV. ( )

The Shooks, the husband-and-wife team behind the wildly successful multi-site church Fellowship of the Woodlands, start brutally: “Your time on earth is limited...” No amount of subsequent encouragement about living passionately or like Jesus eased that solar-plexus blow, at least for me.
