Overview

Wholeness: Winning in Life from the Inside Out by Touré Roberts

Wholeness, the sophomore book from international thought leader and pastor Touré Roberts is about removing invisible boundaries from our lives that keep us from realizing our highest potential. Roberts brilliantly lays forth the truth that in order to live an outer life without limits, we have to uncover and address the inner limitations that hide in our blindspots.

This life-changing book explains that regardless of where you are in life, Wholeness will take you higher. Wholeness will elevate your sense of fulfillment in life, produce healthier, more rewarding relationships, and will position you for optimum success in every endeavor.

Roberts explains we can’t always choose the experiences that keep us from being whole, but we can take control of our lives today and bring healing to any broken area. Key chapters include an in-depth relationship guide titled “Two Halves Don’t Make a Whole.” “The Cracked Mirror” shows how unprocessed experiences can negatively shape our view of self, others, and the world around us. “Ghosts of the Past” gives powerful, practical tools for avoiding the traps of the past and ensuring that we enter into the amazing future that God has planned for us.

Wholeness is filled with wisdom garnered from Touré’s own life—raised by a single mom, narrowly escaping the trappings of inner city life, and finding success in corporate America. His insight is further broadened by his role as founder of one of the most influential churches in the nation, with over fourteen years pastoring thousands of millennials, couples, families, and a diverse group of individuals. Wholeness will take you on a transformational journey that won’t leave you the same. Concluding with a "Wholeness Test", Wholeness will help you track and maintain your progress while walking out your journey to your full potential.

This book is indeed life changing!!! It's an easy read but very powerful content. It definitely made me ask myself some questions that I never thought to ask but really needed to ask. Its already changing my view of myself and life itself and I haven't even finished the book yet. I highly recommend this book and will be telling all around me about this amazing book!

I believe this book will be in the top five self-help/spirituality books of 2018. I believe it speaks to people of all faiths, especially since it speaks to something that everyone in the world is seeking - to be whole. I finished it in 4 days and will be re-reading it at least once every few months to make sure I stay on track with becoming whole. Top Ten Keys I Took Away: 1) Wholeness is a place of knowing with God that doesn't can can't exist outside the realm of God. 2) Wholeness is pure 3) Keys to wholeness exist, but you have to be willing to use them. 4) Wholeness is and will always be a journey (be careful of the "blind spots"), but it's one well worth the travel. 5) Your identity in Christ will bring you to wholeness (not man, things or earthly pursuits) 6) Wholeness is a constant checking in with God and self. 7) For every hidden scar wholeness reveals, God has a star for it. 8) You will have to fight to maintain your wholeness, but the battle is already yours. 9) The enemy will trick you into thinking your whole keep you bound. 10) When you think you're whole, there's more work to be done.

This book is phenomenal. Pastor Toure’ Roberts did an amazing job at explaining how as human beings we are complex and how life experiences tend to shape our perceptions about ourselves and the world around us, whether those perceptions are good or bad. He explains that in life we all will face some force of brokenness, regardless to if we want to acknowledge or not. But if we dare to challenge those thoughts and brokenness we can began our journey to wholeness. What I love about this book is that I believe it’s for any and everyone. Pastor Toure’s ability to clearly draw the connections of childhood traumas to adulthood brokenness has me shook and trying to trace all of my brokenness to its origin. I definitely feel renewed after being exposed to all this wisdom and divine truths. I recommend this book to EVERYONE because I don’t think there is anyone who could learn and grow from it. It has truly blessed me. I don’t think I’ve ever tabbed a book this much, except for the Bible lol. Get this book and start or enhance your journey to wholeness!

This book is simply put - A Great Read. It's a must. What I thought would take me years to attain were revealed in this book. This literature has simply enthralled me. I marvel at the promises that God has given me. I'm believing more in His vision.

Amazing read -- If you are currently on the journey to being whole, being better, embracing you or you have the desire to do so, THIS IS FOR YOU! This book is a literary masterpiece to say the least, Pastor Roberts has a unique conversation with the reader, sharing personal experiences and practical knowledge for a collective experience of greatness. I am better because of this book! For me, it was purely confirmation that dealing with pain of the past is crucial for growth and upward mobility!

WHOLENESS Winning in Life from the Inside Out by Toure Roberts is a book worth reading. I was not going to read it because there was a forward by T. D. Jakes, I didn’t want more of the same. (Been there read that!) I chose to review it because I noticed no one else was- I often choose what no one else wants to read to review. What makes WHOLENESS a good book is the concept is applicable in everyone’s life. We all reach a plateau in which we cannot seem to move forward but there does not seem to be a loically reason as to why. The issue, as the author explains, is not readily seen because it comes from within; it is not them it is you. We all have life events that were unexplainable or unavoidable in which we can ignore. Often what we do is take the hurt or feelings of rejection and place it in a mental compartment deep within our souls. Like a missing piece of the puzzle that memory creates a void in our lives the author refers to it as brokenness. WHOLENESS, is a easy to read book (I read it in a day) that systematically takes the reader from- how it happened to how to fix it. As easy as this book is to read for some people it might be hard to digest. This book, though autobiographical in nature, is about you the reader; don’t lie to yourself and think that it is not. This is a healthy healing read. Note: another reason I was reluctant to read this book is the authors’ face was on the cover, he looks to young to know about life. Change the cover and perhaps you would sell more books in a greater demographic- unless your target audience is Black males. - - written by Marsha L F Randolph I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.

Toure set the bar high with his first book Purpose Awakening. Yet, he truly outdid himself with Wholeness! Don’t assume this is your typical “self help” book. This is one of those writings you can tell from the onset was inspired by God. You’ll be convinced Toure was reading your mail or had a spy telling him all your business with every chapter. He breaks down and unmasks the hidden aspects and roadblocks to Wholeness in such a way that both children and scholars can understand and appreciate. More importantly he was able to layout a roadmap to Wholeness that wasn’t just a list of “how to’s“. His methodical thought process is genius. Regardless of your level or degree of realized or unrealized brokenness this book is so inspiried set you on the path to Wholeness in a refreshing way. Don’t be too proud to let the Holy Spirit do it’s work and let out a good cry when words leap off the pages and grip your soul. It may seem like a wrestling match in your spirit but as you surrender and Tap Out to the transformational acts of God you’ll sense a healing like no drug you’ve ever experienced before! Let me finish by saying when you’re done reading Wholeness you’ll want go out and buy every book by Toure and Sarah Jakes Roberts that day! Watch... and be blessed!

This book is a must have! I'm thankful I purchased this book in a season of my marriage where me and my husband was losing hope. As we read this book together, we began to acknowledge, address & start healing broken areas of ourselves. After reading this book. Divorce is no longer an option for us. Life changing!! Whatever stage you are in your life, you can benefit from this book. It's a powerful & easy read. Embrace each page and enjoy the journey ❤

This book is having such an incredible impact on my life. Toure' Roberts explains how we all have some degree of brokenness (the opposite of wholeness) inside of us. He walks us through the process of becoming whole and shows us how beautiful it is to exchange brokenness for wholeness. I'm finding it well worth going through the process to become whole. Each step of the process is bringing me to a new place of freedom. It's when we walk in that freedom that we can also walk in a place of being truly authentic; truly who God made us to be. I highly recommend this book! I think every person can benefit from reading it. Here's to you starting your journey to wholeness.

This book will transform your life!! The God-inspired wisdom and insight, along with Pastor Toure’ Roberts’ transparency, reaches you in a way that is resonating. It will take you on a journey of self-discovery and ultimately introduce you to a higher version of yourself you didn’t know existed. Pastor Toure’ addresses the lies we tell ourselves that keep us from being whole; identifies unhealthy patterns and dysfunction that need to be uncovered and healed - bringing us from brokenness to the place of wholeness that God intends for everyone. This book is the perfect follow up to Purpose Awakening. If you want to truly be whole in every area of your life, you must read Wholeness. It will bless your life!!

I purchased TWO copies one for me and a friend. It is our job as believers to spread the good news in 2018 and this book is LIFE-changing. I have followed PT and Sarah on YouTube between One Church LA & One Church Denver and they are truly anointed. If you can feel it in your spirit or soul that something on the inside of you is not right or not a rest, or maybe you are just plain tired and need rest or a mental break then please don't be afraid to give this book a try, it can heal you.

The combination of personal anecdotes and plain language helps make complex psychological and spiritual problems understandable, and manageable. I appreciate that the author doesn't sugar coat problems or allow readers to settle for mediocrity. It's definitely a challenge, presented in a way where you know it's your calling to rise to that challenge.
ERidgley More than 1 year ago
This book is life changing. Toure Roberts takes you through his own personal experiences on the journey to be whole and explains why being whole is truly important. Told as if he is speaking directly to you, he passes along the steps you too can follow in order to be whole! Oftentimes, we present an image to others that everything is perfectly fine with our lives while we are struggling internally. Pastor Toure shows exactly what you can do to combat that struggle with thought provoking questions and what the gift of wholeness will bring to your life to make it better than you could have imagined.
DeeCooper More than 1 year ago
Pastor Toure' Roberts gently guides you through a process of becoming the healthiest version of you. He helps you face the person in the mirror, address hidden hurts and heal. PT does it in such a loving way you can't help but embrace his words. This book is beautifully written and easy to read. I encourage you to get it, do the work and begin to live your best life now. :-)

Wonderful positive, uplifting, supportive & encouraging book for healthy healing. Are you whole? Are you dealing with past hurts from past experiences and brokenness? How are all of those experiences affecting what you say about yourself today and what and who you attract to yourself? If you would like to become the very best version of you and in doing so become able to attract equal positivity and blessings back to your life then this book is a gateway to helping you find the way. Highly Recommend. Happy Healing!

Wholeness: Winning in Life from the Inside Out is a life-changing book. The book is an easy read and yet filled with amazingly powerful content. Wholeness will uncover and reveal broken areas of your life which may have you stuck or at least not living up to your full potential. Author Touré Roberts guides you through a non-threatening process to help you identify and overcome the barriers keeping you from truly winning in life. Wholeness is a powerful personal development tool and should be required reading especially for those in leadership roles. I am already recommending the book to my family, friends and colleagues.
