Home Behind the Sun: Book Review

June 26, 2014

This book is not for the faint of heart, or people how do not like beautiful words. 

In the beginning of this book I was a bit thrown off as to where the author was trying to take me, but delving in I figured it out. He was explaining the beauty of the mornings rising sun, the majesty that God brings, and the beauty that surrounds us. 

There are two authors (Tim and Jason) that take turns giving their insights and stories about Who God is, where He can be found and what He wants to do for us.

There is such a beauty with the words that are written, it kept me going back for more.

The main theme of this book is about tapping into the beauty that surrounds us and blocking out the negativity that tries so hard to suck the life out of us. 

Here are some excerpts from the book:


"The world and even some Christians walk around with eyes shut tight, stumbling into untruth."
They also write that Jesus came to take us brutes and makes us vibrant.


Plus many more.

The entire book is laced with truths about our culture, how to love and live victoriously within that culture and how to change it!!

If I were to say what I thought this book was about, I would say that the authors were really trying to get me to see beauty for what it really is. Not what the world calls beautiful; vanity, outward beauty, prettiness. But real beauty can be found in the everyday; being obedient to Jesus, dressing modestly, watching children play.

Beauty is not how I look, but Who I look to when I need help.
Beauty is not a pretty flower, but the One Who made the flower pretty is beauty.
Beauty is not my clothing style, but my heart that tries to please God with how I dress...

That is what I think this book is about...finding beauty in a dark, messed up world.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
