{w}hole

I just finished reading {w}hole by Lisa Whittle. This book gripped me from the first page and wouldn't let go. Lisa Whittle intertwines her life story with compelling writing about holes in your own spiritual life and how to let God fill them to become whole. I was touched, moved, and pricked by this book. It made me want to recharge my relationship with God.

She details her hurtful life experiences, including the experience of her father having to step down from his ministry, and how it effected her life and made her realize her own life was full of holes. Her writing on how she realized she was addicted to religious experiences and rituals rather than truly trusting in and having a vibrant relationship with God was both thought-provoking and convicting. I appreciated her ability to not blame the church for her difficult life experiences, and in fact, still love the church deeply.

I have been inspired to cultivate a deeper relationship with Christ through this book and not allow myself to just become caught up in going through the motions of Christian living. I highly recommend this book to any Christian.

I was provided a copy of this book by Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
