Book Review - "The Exceptional Life"
Stephen Arterburn's latest book, "The Exceptional Life: 8 powerful steps to experiencing God's best for you" is an eye-opener and an encouraging read!
Each chapter discusses one of the eight steps that a person needs to take in order to experience God's best. Each step consists of giving up something, but when something is given up, something is gotten back. For example, the first chapter is "give up guilt and shame; get back hope." This book is excellent to read on your own; however it would also be a great book to do as a part of a small group as each chapter concludes with questions for further discussion that enhance what was just read. While reading this book, it feels as if the reader is in a conversation with the author, thus making the book an easy and enjoyable read.
This book touches on some "heavy" issues and areas that may bring up negative emotions or memories; however it will also fill you with hope for being a better person and really experiencing the best that God desires for each of us.
