Book Review - I Am Second
There is nothing quite as compelling as a personal story—an account of someone’s life, radically changed.
This book is filled with some of these amazing stories. Across North America and around the world, hundreds of thousands of people are proclaiming a new anthem: “I Am Second.” No longer are they number one. These people have come alive to the truth that God has a plan for this world…a plan that specifically includes them. In this book you will discover their stories—some from notable people and some not so well known—who have had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ and are walking in radical obedience by putting Him first in their lives.
These stories are raw and real, dealing with the darkest moments of the human experience. Addictions, depression, infidelity, abortion, cancer, pornography, loneliness, jealousy, divorce, war…each story shows the redemptive power of Jesus who brings purpose and true joy to every secret place of life. Your story may not be included in this book…but you too can be a Second.
My Take on the Book
If you are a spiritual person, you have probably met people that are like the ones you will meet in this book. Selfless people that have figured out that life is not really about them, but instead, they are second to one that gave them the life that they have.
In this book you will know some of the names that they refer to and the stories that they share. The book is powerful and energizing and you will find yourself questioning your own beliefs, or at least I know that I did!
This book allows you to see that everyone is human and that we all make mistakes, the important thing is that we learn form them and grow closer to God through the experiences that we have.
This was a great book and one that I would highly recommend!
