Unstuck by Cole & Ross
I was very drawn to the first few chapters of this book and the results of the studies that were conducted. I was reminded of the importance of reading the Bible itself...not merely books about the Bible. But midway through the book I lost interest. The content was all good...I just didn't find it to be what I needed at this point in my spiritual journey.
What I do really like is that the authors are committed to helping others grow! They created a website, www.gotandem.com, to help others engage the Bible in a way that is suitable for their lifestyles. On the site you can take a spiritual assessment and then sign up for ways to have scripture delivered to you. You pick the times and the delivery method (text, voicemail, email). You can even sign up to have a person call you once a week to encourage you on your spiritual journey!
Overall, the book points believers back to the Bible and provides tools and insight to help them grow. I don't think it's the best book on this topic, but the research findings set it apart and made it worth the read.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
