Lessons from a follower of God Nov 11, 2009
This book was a bit unusual for an auto biography. He does not try to highlight every achievement he made or elaborate on all his accomplishments. He simply tells his story. He tells how he has been used by God, and how often his accomplishments were not due to any amazing act on his part, but were due to his willingness to simply accept God's plan and go along with it. He talks about things that he did right and things that he did wrong, and gives advice on being a missionary, being a husband, and on being a preacher. But the focus is on being a servant of God, whatever that means in your life. There is no pressure for the reader to do all the things that Stuart Briscoe has done, most of which aren't even mentioned in the book. But there is a call to do what God wants you to do, and that in order to have a fulfilled life, you must pay attention to this call.
The book is light and easy to read. It does not get into any deep theology, making it very accessible. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and enlightening read.
Life Changer Sep 17, 2009
I heard Mr. Briscoe speak at an event in 2008 and was astonished at his ability to deliver such a great message. I read this book, Flowing Streams, and was blown away. I began with the thinking that it was "just" his life story. It builds to such a climax that it was sad to be finished, and yet it has so impacted my life that I couldn't wait to purchase several copies and give to friends. Don't get in a hurry when you read this book, you need to savor every morsel and look at the underlying truths that are woven throughout its pages.
