A Mile Wide by Brandon Hatmaker

A Mile WideAbout:
As a host and guest judge for HGTV and DIY Network (My Big Family Renovation, Brother v.s. Brother, Tiny House Arrest), Brandon Hatmaker understands what it takes to rehab a home. But after twenty-plus years of working with the local church (and as husband to bestselling author Jen Hatmaker), he has an even greater understanding of what it takes to rehab an everyday faith. In A Mile Wide, he helps readers see more clearly how the gospel works in us and eventually through us to transform an anemic spiritual life into a deeper, fuller, and more effective faith.
Offering fresh perspective on eight essentials of Christianity—the gospel, identity, scripture, discipleship, kingdom, mission, community, and justice—Hatmaker provides biblical insight and practical applications that tap into the richer life Christ promised his people, individually and as a community. God wants more than simply to save us; he’s also determined to transform us, restore us, and use us to reveal the coming of his kingdom right here, right now.
My Thoughts:
Jesus was an amazing story teller and used truths to tell stories, which is exactly how Brandon Hatmaker engages the reader. He invites the reader into a deep relationship with Jesus that helps us not only know him, but to become like him, while helping us grow deeper into discipleship. I love how this book makes the reader dig deep into their faith, while calling the reader to experience Christ on a whole new level. This book isn't for someone who is looking to read with their eye half open, but for someone who is looking to grow deeper and wider, while learning to know our Jesus more intimately. I challenge you to buy this book because it will shake your faith and push you in way you didn't know was possible. Thank you to Nelson books. I was provided a copy and did not receive monitory compensation for my review. I give this book 5/5 stars.
