I was excited to get, How To Reach Your Full Potential For God, by Charles Stanley. I know it is time to refocus my life in service to God, and since I enjoy and benefit from Charles Stanley’s radio sermons, I thought this book would be perfect. Alas — not so much.
Stanley’s “How to” book, in my opinion, would work much better as a group study then a solitary read. Interestingly enough, there is a study guide. If I weren’t already so burnt-out from the enormous task of trying to read and utilize the suggestions and information in the book — and answering the hundreds of soul-searching questions — I might buy the study and give it another go. Maybe later, after I’ve let my brain rest and recoup.
I am sad that I cannot recommend this book. I have long been an admirer of Charles Stanley, but I think this theme is just too ambitious for one reader to tackle by him- or herself.
I am a member of the Thomas Nelson “Book Sneeze” blogger program and would like to thank Thomas Nelson Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to review.
