Mercy can be such a powerful thing, it is a simple word, but it's effects can be so strong, and yet it is often not given as often as it should. Jack Alexander's recent spiritual growth book, "The God Impulse: the power of mercy in an unmerciful world" addresses the concept of mercy and how we can each live like Jesus. This is a very thought-provoking, powerful book. Jesus' time spent on earth ministering had such an impact and he showed mercy and shared truth every where He went. However, we pass by people day in and day out and don't pay attention, much less show kindness and mercy to them. There is so much hurting, hate and just destruction in the world today, and this book will help you to view the world in a different way and help the reader to follow Jesus' example to go and show mercy. Divided into various sections this book will really help the reader to emulate Jesus' heart and attitude toward others as we strive to live like Him in this hurting world. This book is eye-opening and gave me a new perspective and I am hopeful that I can make a change in how I live and the interactions I have on a daily basis. I highly recommend this book!
