This book is a great read! Mixed with humor, but has REALLY strong (and much needed in our society) stuff in there too! Definitely recommend reading this book!
I'm from the southern bible belt and we pride ourselves on how close we stay to the bible. Looks like we may have tried so hard we may have started to approach it like the pharisees. Time to look in the mirror. I especially was affected by his take on the familiar "love bank". That one hit me hard as I saw myself as the "complainer" that Peter described. I don't agree with everything, but was struck by enough to recommend this book to anyone. Thanks Peter.
This book is funny, real, and motivating. Absolutely reccommend!
