    The Berlin Wall. The author likens the walls in our lives to that fortress that separated two sections of a city for so many years. But how do we change? How do we overcome the obstacles that surround us? In this book, Ryan Rush shows us how, or at least attempts to. To me it felt more like a book of encouragement with lots of Scripture and some great stories than a how-to book on overcoming whatever it is that you're facing. Rush is the father to a special needs child and her medical complications allowed me to not feel like he was some preacher who had no idea what real life can be like, but that he knows the hurts and pain that can come with life. While I can't say this book gave me any practical advice on how to knock down the walls in my life, it was inspiring and I very much enjoyed the stories of others, and I would say it's worth reading this book just for those.

    FTC disclaimer: I received an advance reader's copy of this book in exchange for a review.

    Highly Recommended

    Have you ever felt stuck? Have you ever felt like you can't move forward? Is something holding you back? No matter what life you live, you will always face challenges that can keep you from living out your full potential. Author and pastor Ryan Rush calls these obstacles walls. "A wall is an unhealthy mind-set that keeps you from living life as God intends. They're right in front of you, like it or not," he says. "They can block you from the close relationship with God you've longed for." But how can you break through the walls in your life?

    Ryan Rush seeks to answer this question in his new book, Walls: Why Everybody's Stuck (And Nobody Has to Be). He explains how to identify, define, and overcome the walls in your own life, while sharing stories of his personal experiences with his own walls. "Anytime you stop expecting something beyond your current situation, you begin to settle for far less than what could be," says Rush. "Regardless of the wall you are facing, there is a corresponding promise just waiting to be discovered."
    I believe this book is an invaluable resource for anyone who feels "stuck" in their current situation. It's loaded with truth about life and God's promises and how trusting in Him can get you through anything. It's not about what you're going through, it's about your mind-set, and Walls outlines the mind-set that God intended all of us to have.

    I recieved this book to review for free from the Tyndale Blog Network.

    Brilliant Read

    Walls - Ryan Rush

    Ever feel that there is something holding you back from experiencing a Faith Breakthrough in your life - something, maybe, like a wall??? This book by Ryan Rush is a brilliant resource that will help you identify walls that you have built up (unknowingly) around your life which prevent you from breaking through in your faith to something new. Once the wall is identified, Rush talks about how we can bring it down and overcome it, leading us to experience a Faith Breakthrough and become closer and more intimate with God as a result.

    Writing very personally, Rush explains the importance of breaking through walls in our relationships with God. Writing from his own experience adds credibility to this book, and the pure honesty of it enabled me to get more out of it than I would had it not been written from such a personal perspective. Found the book challenging, but challenging in a way that wanted me to address any walls that I had built up in my life and be proactive about changing things, and to be proactive to read this book. I think this book is a brilliant book for anyone who wants to experience more of God, regardless of their stage in their walk with Him.

    Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary Advance Reader Copy of this book.
