2016 Challenge - Book #64 - If

Today I am revewing:

If



It is under the category: A Book About Religion

This book talks about getting people to transform their "if only" attitudes with "What if" possibilities.  The author talks about how he tries to live his life in the "what if" category - always looking for new opportunities around every corner.  He talks about overcoming doubt, guilt and fear to live the life God intended for you.

I am not very religious, but I enjoyed most of this book.  Were there a few moments where I rolled my eyes?  Yes.  Do I think much of pastors that have "super churches"?  Not usually.  Of course, the book was from the point of view of the author, but honestly, he didn't seem much like the usual super church pastors.  He gives millions to missions and charity work.  He lives in a comfortable townhouse and owns a car with 200,000 miles on it.  So maybe (maybe) in this case - he is not the typical TV pastor we all come to dislike.

I did agree with many of the points he tried to make.  How we should be living a life taking chances and making the best of any situation.  I think it was a good read, and while I felt like there were many passages where he rambled and said the same thing several times in a row, the main idea was clear.

Stars: 3 1/2
