5.0 out of 5 stars Live you life loving Jesus rather than trying to control him., 26 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God (Paperback)
This is a very simple book, it has a simple message, it is written in a simple way. Even the diagrams in the book are simple, easy to draw on a napkin or white board.

But that doesn't means that the message is not strong, powerful and hugely important.

As the back cover puts it "Stop living your life UNDER, OVER, FROM, and FOR God and start living in communion WITH him".

After introducing the five positions that we relate to God, Skye details each of the four ways in which we try to control God, to bend him to our will. After showing these false positions he moves on to the true way, that is the way of love. He gets there through living with God, with Faith, and with Hope.

As Skye would place as the main thing to remember is that as Paul wrote to the Corinthians "faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love" that faith and hope become meaningless when you come face to face with that which you have faith and hope in.

If when you meet Jesus after your mortal body expires you are stripped of your faith and hope, because that which you have faith and hope in is now realised, what remains? Love. And if you have not love then will Jesus be able to recognise you or are you going to end up in the position were he says that he does not know you?

At the end of the book is a series of discussion questions (titled Discuss WITH others). Don't skip these, make sure you discuss these with someone else. Me, well, first read through I discussed them with Jesus. Its a great way to kick start your relationship living your life WITH him.
