Awakening, Honesty, Action – AHA
In this book, the author takes us through the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15. Describing his experience of being the distant country and then coming to his senses – first, the awakening: realizing that one’s choices have taken us down the wrong road. Then, honesty – taking responsibility for those choices and not denying the seriousness of the situation. Then, action “so he got up”. Actually doing something about those wrong choices – making right choices, turning back to God.
Having read 2 others of Idleman’s books Not a Fan and Gods at War, I wasn’t sure whether I would like this one or not. I thoroughly enjoyed Not a Fan, highly recommending it. However, I didn’t like Gods at War nearly as much. This latest book I would put somewhere in between the two. I liked it much better than Gods at War though not quite as much as Not a Fan. But I would definitely recommend reading this one – a good realization to wake up to where we are in our lives, moving past denial and passivity to actually making changes to grow in our walk with God.
