This is just one example of how this book puts the pieces of the puzzle together. I admit at first I was a bit overwhelmed with a 390 page book. Then, I decided to read it slowly and I soon realized there was material in here that summarized the topics in several books. Specifically, much of David Takle’s Whisper’s of My Abba is included in this book. I agree with his slant that a relationship with God is going to include direct communication with God and his explanations on barriers to this communication are classic. A bit of the material of Wilder’s Joy Starts Here as well as Living from the Heart Jesus Gave You is also included in this book. Grace is compared to legalism in a non-controversial setting of a personal relationship with Christ. Spiritual disciplines are discussed but only after a carefully crafted explanation of how we align our sales to a power that makes things happen. Without this foundation, spiritual disciplines become self effort similar to rowing a boat. I could go on and on, but my point is that the various topics in this book are put together so that for the first time I could see how they all fit together in living the Christian life.
So, this book may seem like a long book but realize it’s a bargain considering the vast material covered.
David’s book amplifies a related course, “Forming Change by Grace,” but each is stand-alone and self-contained. The book chapters are keyed to the course chapters/sessions. The book is more comprehensive, but the video course is more relationally engaging. Together they provide a “3D” effect—an added dimension whereby the participant can be taught, can practice, and can reflect on the amplified material in the book. As a course facilitator, the book gave me added information to customize the material to the specific needs of course participants—and to answer their questions.
