"Exceptional Life" is an Exceptional Book
Stephen Arterburn is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and “Exceptional Life, 8 Powerful Steps to Experiencing God’s Best for You” only serves to confirm my good opinion. This book is one you’ll want to own and to give. There’s something for everyone in this and the information is presented in a lively format with kindness and compassion. Arterburn often draws on personal experiences to illustrate his point, ,making the information more personal and, in my opinion, more readable.Was this review helpful?

The book focuses on eight behaviors that people get stuck in and how to get free of them in order to live your life more fully. Now, that might sound cliché but I found something new and fresh in each chapter. I particularly was taken with the analogy about fire and resentment. (It’s a lengthy explanation so I’ll let you read it yourself.) I found myself reading this one slowly, really wanting to absorb everything.
If you’ve ever struggled with, or are struggling with Greed, Resentment, Fear, Anger, Instant Gratification, Isolation, Learned Helplessness, or Addiction then there is a chapter for you. This book is a thoughtful and insightful tool to help you get free of some of these things and start you on a journey to a better life.
