Book Review: Unstuck by Arnie Cole and Michael Ross

Is your relationship with God stuck in neutral? Are you not hearing His voice?  Has your spiritual growth stalled?  If so, then you are not alone; it seems that everyone gets stuck along the way somewhere and that’s what makes this book a must read.

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my review.  At first, I thought it’d be a fast read through, I’d give my opinion of whether I liked it or not and move forward to my next review.  However, this book grabbed me from the first page; so, instead of a quick read, I found myself digging in and actually engaging the study.

Unstuck is about helping people to draw in closer to God through emerging themselves in the Bible. Emerging in the Word is more than a casual reading of scripture here or there. Without sounding preachy, Unstuck takes a closer look at why people get stuck.

Authors Arnie Cole & Michael Ross from Back to the Bible, include testimonies of other people’s life-stuck situations, along with sharing their own stories. They encourage people to read God’s word for themselves and not rely on someone else’s opinion.  Through extensive surveys, Arnie and Michael have found that Christians who interact with God through the Bible at least four times per week reap significant spiritual benefits. This book inspires a relational fellowship with God that is not filled with formulas or religious rules.  It helps people develop a two-way communication with the Father. Accordingly, this study isn’t about memorizing scripture but actually taking it in, metabolizing it, and allowing God’s Word to take root.

Unstuck has changed the way I communicate with God; it has helped strengthen my faith and I’m excited to read His Word again. I’d recommend that readers have their Bibles handy as each chapter has verses to look-up and a thought provoking question to ponder.

This book earns five stars and it is a welcome addition to my reference library.
