Freedom Tools by Andy Reese and Jennifer Barnett

Book description:

What do you say to someone who is hurting?

How many times in everyday conversation do we struggle to comfort others in a troubled world? Christians should be “first responders,” say Andy Reese and Jennifer Barnett, yet we lack the tools and confidence to reach out. We end up frustrated by our own inability to connect meaningfully and make a difference.

But what would happen if we had the ability and courage to speak out in love?

In these pages Andy and Jennifer give you the practical understanding and simple tools to do just that. You can fill even your casual conversations with the gentle yet transforming power of Jesus Christ. Here is what you need to confidently step out to bring peace, give grace and help others experience renewal.

My review:

I enjoyed this book very much.  There is a lot of information covered in the 304 pages, but it is a quick read.  It is one of those books that make you want to read a little and then spend a couple of days mulling over what you read and what it means to your life.  For me, those are the best kinds of books.

I really enjoyed reading the first section of this book about the Ten Foundations.  In fact, I thought they were so interesting and thought-provoking that it could be an entire book on its own.  Reese and Barnett spend a great deal of time explaining each foundation and examples of what they look like in real life.

Some books are good about explaining information and others are good about giving advice on changing the way you look at things and live.  This book gives good information and then very specific information on how to apply those ideas in our daily lives.  It is the best kind of non-fiction book!

Whether you agree with the ideas in the book or not, this is a very thought-provoking, revolutionary book.  It is one that will be on my shelves for a long time and one that I will read again.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
