How's Your Soul?, a review

Once in awhile, a review book comes across my desk that is just what I needed at the moment.  At first when I saw that Judah Smith is young and the pastor of a large church in Seattle, I admit to wondering just how deep this book could be.  Let me assure you, it is quite possibly the best book on soul I have read in a long time.

He reminds us that our soul came to us as the breath of God in the garden and that our soul is the real part of us.  That when it leaves, our body becomes lifeless.  So we must make certain we are feeding our soul with the Word and spending time with the Lord in order to strengthen us.

This book not only has sound theology, it is an easy and might I add... fun... book to read.  I never thought I'd find myself laughing out loud as I'm being taught the importance of the soul to the Christian life.  At least when the book includes grounded theology.

If you are soul weary, this book just may be the medicine that will help.  If you are needing a book to make you fall in love with Jesus all over again, this may be the right book for you.  I'd definitely recommend it to someone who just wants a good read on a cold day that will also turn their hearts back to Heaven.  Highly recommended!

Sounds like a wondeful book for gifting, too. Is the audience for this book for both Believers and Unbelievers?

That sounds really good, and like a book Tim could read aloud with us.

This would be a very good book for the nonbeliever who is willing to read it.

I did not know Judah had a new book out. He is funny and a wonderful preacher. He has
sermons on You Tube" Judah Smith City Church Seattle" Yes I agree Wendal Smith was an amazing man of God. What a small world.
Much love,
