If you are looking for a last minute gift, or maybe something to buy yourself after you’ve collected your gift cards, I can recommend the new book by Mark Batterson, “Primal“. Primal is a search for the “lost soul of Christianity”, and in the book Batterson addresses foundational issues that will get any Christian thinking about their own faith.
My book review style is not to rehash what every chapter covers, but rather to give a few things that really spoke to me. By doing that, hopefully I will show you how impactful the book is. So here it goes:
page 9: “Does you heart break for the things that break the heart of God?” This really stopped me and got me thinking about the direction I am going. I think it’s a great question for any Christian.
page 28: “What is my God ordained passion?” Batterson introduces this question almost in passing in the chapter, but it hit me very hard in thinking about how God wants me to serve Him specifically.
These two questions are substantial enough to make the book worth the price, but it is full of more thought provoking information as well. It definitely got me thinking about where American Christianity is going, and where I am headed as well.
Again, I recommend this latest book from Batterson for anyone seeking to grow in their Christian walk.
Did I mention this book has an awesome size to it? Fits perfectly in a briefcase for traveling.
