Don’t check your brains is a perfect book for coming of age teenagers or for any Christian who wants to test and temper their belief -or at least why they believe. This book is a republish of the same book and is worth the space on your bookshelf but should not be left there. It is not only a great book for introducing everyone to apologetic knowledge but it should be used as reference to remind us of the basics – the place we rarely return and often stumble.
This book was provided in kind in return for this review and is proudly living among the theology text on my bookshelf.
What a great compilation of stories and examples with big impact. The author hits home when he says that we aren’t all superheroes with bigger than life callings. The day-to-day events in our lives and who we impact make us more than just Average Joes to God. In fact, if we look at those we do impact we find that we are superheroes to them. Through the author’s stories, we are inspired to take a closer look at what we are doing in our lives as Average Joes that make us invaluable to God’s work and calling.
This book provides a fresh perspective – a get out of the rut perspective – to focus on Him and to understand the gifts He has given each of us and how we are called as disciples/followers to serve Him and others so that His will is done!
Average Joe by Troy Meeder is much more than an average read – it’s a great read.
It is similar to the first day on the job. Not that I am getting paid for my words…yet.
