This little book was a very quick read, about 4 hours in total, and yet it was full of deep wisdom and perspective every Christian should hear and ponder. I stumbled onto this book after a quote resonated with me while reading When I Lay my Isaac Down by Carol Kent.
TerKeust brings the Christian walk into view in a more specific way and offers a challenge. TerKeust is careful to ask the reader only to consider what is being presented instead of stating life now needs to be lived the same way she lives it. I truly appreciated that, not because I don't want to be obedient, but because it allowed me to read this book without a cloud of guilt hanging over me.
TerKeust brings the reader through scripture pointing out how we are called to a life of obedience. Over and over she shows how we are created with the opportunity to choose, and those choices effect our opportunities to serve God.
As a Christian I find one of the most challenging things said is "You just need to pray about that, and have faith". TerKeust brings that statement into focus in a new way that left me hungry to be able to say "I choose obedience".
