This was an entirely different kind of book than what I normally read. I usually read Christian fiction or self-help books so it was refreshing to read something from a different genre. Mark Batterson's writing style is easy to read and keeps your interest throughout the entire book. Here is a short review of "Primal".
"Our generation needs a reformation!" The overall theme of "PRIMAL" is that God is calling us to live "COMPASSIONATELY, CREATIVELY, and COURAGEOUSLY for the cause of Christ! Discover or should I say re-discover something old, something ancient, and something PRIMAL!"
This book makes you delve deeper into your faith in Jesus Christ, not just knowing what you believe, but WHY you believe it!
There are many quotable lines that you will want to memorize and put into practice. I loved these lines; "He calls us to faith on the far side of doubt, joy on the far side of sorrow, and love on the far side of anger."
Great bits of wisdom are sprinkled throughout the entire book and you will feel a whole lot wiser upon finishing this wonderful little book which makes old ideas become new again.
Mark Batterson is a talented writer whose prose will keep your attention and give you food for thought at the same time. Mark is also the author of the best seller, "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day."
This book has a message that everyone needs to hear. Make this the 1st book you read in 2010!
