Mr. Bevere’s latest book is written to the body of Christ to encourage us to love and pursue God with an unyielding passion. This is a worthy pursuit and one that all followers of Christ should make their top priority is life.I appreciate the encouragement the author gives in the book to not give up on your pursuit of a powerfully active life in Christ, but it just seems that the points in the book were dragged out. I felt that with each new chapter I wanted to say, “Yeah, I get this point. Let’s not drag it out for six more pages.” This could have been more concisely written. But, it is possible that someone new to following Jesus could gain some good information here.
The only thing I really had a problem with was stated very early in the book. Mr. Bevere seems to imply since we are of the body of Christ we have the unlimited power of Christ. Even he makes mention of people thinking he has gone too far out on a limb with his statement. And although I understand what he is trying to convey it could be confusing and could be used to create a doctrine in a new believer that is contrary to Scripture. We are the body of Christ and under the authority of Christ, the head of the body. The head tells the body what to do not the other way around.
