Matt Chandler with Jared C. Wilson in their new book, “To Live Is Christ To Die Is Gain” published by David C. Cook shows us Paul’s radical letter to the Philippians. From the Back Cover:   A road map for authentic Christian maturity. This is not a book with popular sound bites and bumper-sticker theology.  This is a disruptively inspiring message from Matt Chandler, a pastor and Bible teacher, who invites you to walk with him through the short book of Philippians. A study in the Book of Philippines do we really need another?  Yes, Pastor Chandler looks at the cost of growth and maturity in the Christian and, that like a child growing up, it does not happen overnight.  It takes some work.  What does matured faith include?  Making disciples and being discipled, Realizing Christ’s love is unconditional, Rejoicing in The Lord because He is always at hand, Living in such a way that Jesus is seen as glorious, Accepting that anxiety and worry are a waste of mental time and Discovering that contentment must be learned.  This is why we need another study in Philippines.  Pastor Chandler has done a remarkable job in putting the focus on the pursuing, chasing, knowing and loving of Jesus.  Because if we do not have Jesus we have nothing.

To Live Is Christ to Die Is Gain by Matt Chandler was ___. I don't quite know the word I want to use to describe it. While the title says it all, the book does just an alright job of it, in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, there were really good points made. There were helpful Scriptural references. There were even personal reflections included. Still, it was ___. I elected to read this book for two reasons. One, the Philippians 1:21 reference is one of the most powerful teachings from the New Testament, as I see it. Second, Paul's life experiences and his example of discipleship were riveting. I knew I had to see what this book was all about. The book started out a bit slow to me. I could not grab hold of the words. In many ways, however, it was a review. I did like the questions that the author tended to ask as he went along. It gave me pause and allowed me to reflect. That was appreciated, especially after having to deal with slow pockets associated with the writing. Another plus with this book was the insightful and thoughtful way that the author included unique tidbits about the church at Philippi. All in all, I liked the book. But...I do place emphasis on the word like. Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would recommend it. I think that it could be a solid study resource. If encountered weekly as a study, it would then allow for an optimal breakdown of the material. In truth, this might be a better approach versus how I approached it. Rating: 3.50
