Book Review: Awakening to God

Awakening to God
Discovering his power and your purpose
By Gerard Long

Do you ever wonder if God has a bigger purpose for your life? Do you find it hard to believe that God wants to use you to do something extraordinary? Are you struggling to figure out your purpose? It's time for an awakening. Gerard Long, executive director of Alpha USA was a rising young British athlete when he experienced the awakening that turned his life upside down and radically changed his heart. In many ways he was on top of the world - he had a promising career, the love of a lifetime and financial success. But while he knew of God's love, he didn't live from that love. God had a life-altering revelation in store for Gerard.  Awakening to God invites you on the same adventure, Gerard shares biblical truth and practical advice gained through his spiritual journey - a journey filled with incredible joy and devastating brokenness. Awakening to God compels us to go and live abundant life given to us in Christ. To rediscover the gospel that calls us to action. To become fishers of men. To change the world. God is on the move, and he's calling your name.

Gerard Long is a pastor, eveangelist, author and motivational speaker. He serves as the executive director of Alpha USA. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly and honest environment, supported by multi-deonominational churches in more than 169 countries. More than 3 million people have taken an Alpha course in the USA and 24 million have participated worldwide. 

Honestly I know that I've asked a lot of the questions that this book tries to explain. I love how easy it is to pick up and read, and it's matter of fact way of talking about issues. If you're someone struggling with your faith then Awakening to God is an awesome book to read. Also check out ReCreatable and Under the Rainbow
