God's Best For You
By:  Stephen Arterburn

Publisher:  Bethany House Publishers
ISBN #:  0764204254
Pages:  224

Author and Christian counselor Stephen Arterburn addresses exactly that in his book, The Exceptional Life:  8 Powerful Steps to Experiencing God’s Best for You.  Mr. Arterburn addresses eight areas in which individuals have struggled with that could hinder the plan that God has for our lives.  With humor, Scripture, and real life stories from individuals whom he has counseled, Mr Arterburn discusses guilt and shame, resentment, fear, anger, instant gratification, helplessness, isolation, and addiction.  He also discusses how we can overcome these circumstances and live the life God truly intended us to have.

What really struck me about this book was that I could really hear the voice of Stephen Arterburn within its pages.  The book reads like a conversation that the author is having with the reader.  The language is very personable, which may makes it easier for the reader to surrender themselves to the difficult topics discussed.  The questions at the end of each chapter really allow the reader to explore each topic as it relates to them. 

In sum, I would recommend this book.  Comment below if you have read this book; I would like to know your thoughts.

Happy ReadingJ     

Note: I have received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a review.
