Burke, founder of Gateway Church in Austin, Tex., and author of No Perfect People Allowed, asks powerful questions in his second book: "What drives us to strive so hard? What are we really after? What do we long for?" Burke believes our deepest longings are fulfilled through relationships with God and others, and he provides a way to create those relationships through a 60-day experiment in faith. He says that willingness is the key to staying connected to God at least once every 60 minutes for 60 days. His book offers a roadmap for the "60-60 Experiment" through loving God, loving people, building character and demonstrating God's love to the world. Burke uses Bible texts and real-life examples liberally, as well as action steps with each chapter to make principles personal. He encourages accountability, yet eschews traditional groups that encourage participants to "try harder" because "we can never become all that God intends just by trying harder." Connecting to God creates genuine change, he says. This is a thorough, well-written and challenging book. (Oct.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
