    Not as good as I expected

    The idea that our view of Jesus isn't big enough, is quite plausible, in relation to who He really is. We tend to get a little too comfortable with how we compartmentalize God at times. Untamed by Lisa Harper encourages us to remember the many personality traits of Jesus in the gospels and that only He can wildly free us from sin.

    I enjoyed the personal life application lessons Lisa shared throughout the book. They were relevant and interesting to read. I felt like she really shared part of who she is. Sometimes in her explanation of Jesus' or the disciples' behavior she would compose thoughts she perceived the person may have been feeling. I really didn't like this addition as it is too subjective when referring to God's Word, in my opinion. She creates this type of prose throughout the book.

    While Lisa has a unique writing style that encompasses personal storytelling and Biblical truths I find the devotional and questions following each chapter a bit weak. There were times I had no idea what kind of response the question was intended to prompt and others that I didn't feel the questions were worthwhile to contemplate. I did, however, enjoy the extra tidbits she included throughout the book that further explained cultural relevancies or history that we might not know about just from reading scripture.

    I expected to be changed by the words in this book and I wasn't. I don't recommend this book for anything other than the purpose of pleasantly passing time.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
