This was an amazing book. I read it over the period of about three weeks, and wouldn’t be surprised if I began reading it again sometime. In the meantime though, I have about 13 other Beth Moore books that I’m excited about. 😉
I’ve heard the name ‘Beth Moore’ over the years, but was never really sure who she was. Then I saw on someone’s blog that she had 14 of her books for free (for a limited time) on Kindle. Thinking it was a great opportunity, I downloaded all of them. I figured if I didn’t like the books, or if I disagreed with what she said, I could easily delete them and that would be the end of it. Then I dove into To Live Is Christ.
For the past year I’ve been listening to the New Testament on my phone over and over again. I’m not sure how many times I’ve listened to it in the past 12 months, but I do know at one time I listened to it in only two weeks. Therefore, I’ve gotten really immersed in Paul the Apostle’s life.
In To Live Is Christ, Mrs. Moore really delves deep into Paul’s life. It was a wonder-filled journey getting to see what life was like during the time a lot of the New Testament was written. Often times she begins a sentence like “Let’s imagine” or “Let’s suppose”. I enjoyed that a lot. It wasn’t as if she was trying to tell us ‘this is how it had to be’, but it was more like ‘can’t you imagine this might have been the way it was?’. All in all, it really helped bring the Bible to life for me and give me more practical ways of living it out.
I’m not saying I agree with everything she said, but when do you ever find someone you agree with 100%? This book was great and I would totally recommend it! Having the world of the New Testament come more alive was a fun, interesting, helpful and encouraging journey!
