Astute readers may be wondering about the seven challenges former lawyer and pastor of Connexus Church (Barrie, Ont.) Nieuwhof discusses in his book. Organized by sections—"Cynicism," "Compromise," "Disconnection," "Irrelevance," "Pride," "Burnout," and "Emptiness"— the work demonstrates how a reliance on God and His word can help instill curiosity and strengthen character. Serving as a helpful companion on the journey of life, Nieuwhof shares lessons in how to accept change and offers antidotes to embracing today's challenges. Writing from firsthand experience and describing both struggles with and victories over life's obstacles, his advice provides an invigorating way through setbacks and adversity.
VERDICT Recommended, particularly for readers of faith-based works.
