More {Review}

Author Todd Wilson's new book, More, explores the idea of Christianity, calling, and what does it mean to "live life to the fullest measure."  What individual hasn't wrestled with the question of identity and purpose?  "Is this all there is?  Why am I here?  What was I made for?"  Beyond the church strategies and programs, what we all long for is a vision bigger than ourselves.

Following the path of Be-Do-Go, Wilson takes his readers from finding their identity in Christ, to knowing their purpose, to identifying their area of influence.  It all starts in the general calling of every Christian to be a disciple making disciplines.  From that rooted position of living in Christ, readers find their specific calling blossom, leading into the More of life.

Outlined in simple identifiable steps, seeped with passion for Christ, and challenging to the core, More was one of the most life jolting books I've read in awhile.  Wilson's book is solid in theology and an easy read blend of Scripture, story, and action steps.  I currently have this book resting on my nightstand and plan to read it a second time.  Although an easy read, More is quite deep and deserves a re-read to effect deep change.

This is a definite read for anyone struggling with vision and purpose, and most Christians in general wanting to grow.  I can't recommend this one highly enough.

*Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
