Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel

I've found that many books on spiritual growth tend to get boring and repetitive.  But I'm pleased to say that this book is not one of them!  Craig Groeschel delivers a message full of truth that is also laugh-out-loud funny! 

Soul Detox is about purifying our lives.  Pastor Craig says that just as smokers are unaware of the smell in their home, "many people aren't fully aware of the forces stunting their spiritual growth...and what many people don't know is not just hurting them but killing them spiritually...It is our responsibility to discern what we let into our lives and what we keep out."  Part One takes a look at our toxic thoughts, language, and hidden sins.  Part Two examines toxic emotions such as bitterness, envy, anger, and fear.  And Part Three reveals toxic influences including materialism, culture, relationships, and religion gone bad.

Reading this book was challenging in the sense that I still have some (okay...a lot of) purifying to do in my life, as we all do.  But the message is also full of transparency and grace.  I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a little soul cleansing, with a few laughs along the way :)
