Our hearts are made for unswaying allegiance to a king and a kingdom, a concept that Jesus talked about more than any other. Yet every day, the false kings of anxiety, approval, comfort, image, escape, power, accumulations, self-sufficiency, supremacy, and shame plot to reign over our hearts instead. Their lies about the true king are so subtle and insidious that we rarely recognize them, and we go on living with divided loyalties that stall our spiritual growth, infect our relationships, and hinder our witness.

If you want to find freedom from the forces vying for your heart, let Christine Hoover equip you for the fight. In this approachable yet provocative book, she helps you root out your own misplaced allegiances so that you can live wholly as a subject of the king who made and redeemed you.

With All Your Heart: Living Joyfully Through Allegiance to King Jesus By: Christine Hoover talks about our divided loyalties. I have enjoyed other Christine’s writings and listen regularly to her podcast. I was excited to see she had a new book coming out. This is such an important message. She discusses a King and His Kingdom, the false kings, and then an unshakable kingdom. Our hearts are often swayed to follow other “kings and kingdoms” as she calls them but we know the true King. This is a message that anyone could be blessed by especially when the world around seems out of control. I often need to be reminded everyday of the Gospel and the hope we have and this book will help you do that. I was blessed to receive an electronic copy via the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I enjoyed "With All Your Heart" by Christine Hoover. This was a very encouraging and inspiring read. Hoover encouraged me to work harder on my Christian walk and to strive to put my allegiance fully in King Jesus. The book is broken up into 3 parts: A King and a Kingdom, False Kings, and An Unshakeable Kingdom. I really enjoyed the 2nd part the best. Hoover delved deeply into these topics: Anxiety, Image, Control, Escape, Isolation, Approval, and Comfort. I like how she specially addressed these topics. Several of these are ones I struggle with almost daily, and her words of wisdom really helped me in these areas. I highly recommend this book to all women out there. I believe Hoover will help you deepen your Christian walk and to fully put your allegiance in King Jesus. I received this book from Baker Books for my honest opinion.

With All Your Heart" by Christine Hoover is a non fiction Christian book. Christine is a pastor's wife. She is the author of By Faith podcast. She has written for the Gospel Coalition. Her website is www.christinehoover.net . Christine focused about our need to have our whole allegiance to Jesus. We need our focus to be with Him first and not looking to other things to fill our need for Him. We look to many things in the world to make us happy. Jesus is supposed to be first in our lives. This book is great for pastor's wives, counselors, to use with new Christians. Thank you to netgalley, the publisher, .the author,, for allowing me to read and review this book. I will post my review on netgalley, Goodreads, facebook, my blog, Barnes and Noble, and for the Church staff.

With All Your Heart by Christine Hoover started out being hard to understand, but as I continued to read, I could understand the points that she was making. Christine talks about different things that can take our focus off God if we are not careful. In one section, Christine talks about things such as anxiety, control, isolation, and comfort. She describes these things as “false kings.” When I read the chapter of anxiety, I could really relate to Christine’s writing. In this chapter she writes, “Anxiety is not productive or powerful to change anything. That’s what Jesus says. When we give our minds over to it, however, it feels as if just by thinking about a circumstance we can change it, or that if we worry about the future enough, we can affect or prevent misfortune.” At the end of each chapter, there is a section with questions that help readers to think back on what they have read. There are also related questions that help you evaluate whether or not you are dealing with the topic that is being discussed.

Every Christian who’s serious about their walk with the Lord should read this book In I John, after John tells to us that God is love and describes His love for us, he very lovingly cautions us in the very last verse: “Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” In her new book, “With All Your Heart: Living Joyfully Through Allegiance to King Jesus,” Christine Hoover shows us how we as believers need to ask the Lord to show us (and then remove) any idols that may be replacing Him as our first love. Published by Baker Books, Hoover’s 240-page book is broken down into three parts and ultimately reveals the false kings of anxiety, image, control, escape, isolation, approval, and comfort (Part Two), as we take spiritual inventory of our hearts before the Lord. (She includes a question section after each chapter that would be perfect for individual or group study.) Using biblical examples and present-day instances from her own life, Hoover explains how we too often run to these false gods for answers to life’s questions, issues and problems, instead of to our Lord, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life – many times without even realizing it or acknowledging it. “Will we say no to all other kings, including self, because we trust in God alone and the King He’s set over us?” she writes (page 56). “Or will we concoct some mix of God and a safe, tangible plan B?” We can too often live our entire Christians lives with divided hearts and loyalties toward the Lord – especially with our time, talents, and thought life – to the point where we can make idols out of our family, friendships, career, money and success, all with very little, if any, notice – if we aren’t allowing the Lord to perform spiritual heart surgery to remove those idols. Ultimately, it is about King Jesus ruling and reigning in our hearts and souls every single minute of every day, instead of ourselves and our daily circumstances – or anything else keeping us from fully surrendering everything to Him. Overall, despite the text being too repetitive, prosy, with some grammatical issues, Hoover’s book is about truly examining our loyalty and devotion to God. In the end, it’s a wonderful book about giving the Lord His rightful place in our hearts. I highly recommend it. I gave Hoover’s book a 5 out of 5 stars. Full disclosure: In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255, I received an advanced copy of this book free through the Baker Books Bloggers Program. My opinions are my own and I wasn’t required to write a positive review. © 2020 by Doug S., M.A.

This is an excellent book for discipleship relationships! I have loved and respected and Christine's writing for several years, but I will admit that this one has surprised me! While reading this book, I've been refreshed, intrigued, and most of all, my heart is more focused on Jesus in the most encouraging way. Pondering her insights and reading through the end of chapter questions and scripture has been the fodder for surprising triumphs in my heart's allegiance to Jesus. The quality that I have always loved most about Christine is her God-given ability to communicate the gospel clearly and beautifully. As Christine states in her book, "our heart is like dough with the gospel as its yeast - it must be kneaded and worked though every part," and that is exactly what I experienced happening to my heart as I read through this book. I have several books that I start, but do not finish. This one has not only kept my interest, but even increased it with each chapter I finish. I highly recommend.
