This Chasing God Book & Give-away is sponsored by Icon Media Group. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I haven’t read a good book in a long time. My time to read is limited, but I recently made time to read Chasing God by Angie Smith. It was well worth carving out time to read this book. The book is directed towards those who are already Christians but who are wondering if they are being a Christian in the “right” way. So for today’s faith post, I thought I would introduce you to this great Chasing God book & giveaway (with a giveaway at the end!).
I always have a hard time with book reviews. I waffle between wanting to foam at the mouth with all the things that I liked about the book and not wanting to disclose too much for those who haven’t read the book. The book focuses on how we often do all the things that we believe are expected of us as Christians– going to church, praying, reading the Bible, participating in service projects– without distinguishing if we are really being true followers of Christ in a way that allows us to truly know Him. I will share one portion that the author shares that truly sunk in with me. In the beginning of the book, she talks about how we as humans “chase” things on a daily basis. This made me think of all the times I’ve gone shopping in search of a great deal or the thrill at the grocery store where I brought out a bag of coupons to save a chunk on my grocery bill. The exhilaration doesn’t last long, and I’m left chasing the same thing in another day or two. I had never correlated this with how I view God until I read this book. Angie Smith, the author, does an excellent job at discussing this topic and hammering out how we can change our viewpoints to gain a truer relationship with God.
