I read this book right after becoming a Christian in 2012 and it was incredible. Outside of the Bible it was the best book I read that year for growth and understanding of what it means to be a Christian. When a friend of mine was saved earlier this year I suggested we go through it with him in small group. It is just as good as the first time I read it, if not better! No fluff and stuff, it gets honest and causes you to evaluate everything you do in light of following Jesus. Cannot recommend it enough. I think this is a book that EVERYONE that calls themselves a Christian should read no matter how new or seasoned a Christian they are.
This is the best book I have ever read regarding following Christ!! I do not like to do a lot of reading. I like to get to the point and move on and books don't usually hold my attention. Well, not so with this one. It has made me look at my commitment and make changes to be more of a follower. I use this book as devotion in the morning and at night! I have truly enjoyed reading it and I'm purchasing more to send to my friends. This book fit right in with my 1st of the year commitment...more of Christ and less of me. Our Pastor recommended it for reading and most of the congregation purchased it. Most of us have adopted the phrase DTR.....!! I had many "ouch" moments.
