Review: One Month to Live

Kerry & Chis Shook
Waterbrook Press

What if?  I've reached the age where grey silver is beginning to lighten my brunette hair.   Bifocals are a necessity.  My mother died young, just 51.  How long do I have?  How long do you have?  I selected this book to begin my year; because, I want to make my remaining days, months, and years meaningful for Jesus Christ, for me, for my family, and for those whom the Lord puts in my path.

The book is to be read over the course of thirty days.  That's a challenge for me; because, if I like a book, I often want to plow through it in a matter of a few days or even a few hours.  Dividing into daily readings gives a bit more time for reflection.  Ideally, this is a book that you journal your way through.  Each chapter has Make It Count Moments and Make it Last for Life questions that cause you to reflect on your life and how you're living it.

Kerry Shook and His wife Chris pastor a megachurch in Houston Texas.  The Shooks have had ample opportunity to minister to people in the last days, weeks, and months of their lives.  This book comes from the changes they've seen in people's perspectives and actions when they find that they only have a limited time to live.  Four principles are explored in this book:  Live Passionately, Love Completely, Learn Humbly and Leave Boldly.  I find this to be a worth my time book.  It's a New York Times Bestseller.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
