Item description for Living Sacrifices: For Those Dying To Rise To A Life Worth Giving by James Haywood Rolling, Jr....

"Living Sacrifices" addresses the call of God for each of us to live an important life. Our model is the resurrected Christ, who offered Himself as a living sacrifice. Following the general themes of chapter 12 of the New Testament book of Romans, Part 1 first takes in view the fullness of God's sacrificial mercy. In Part 2, the text illustrates the transformative capacity found only in cooperation with God's provision on our personal behalf. In Part 3, the text seeks to reveal the power and authority we have been granted to overcome evil with good. "Living Sacrifices" weaves together common sense prose, solid scriptural exposition, and candid personal testimony, with unique parables and anecdotes that illustrate the text. An original poem opens and sets the theme for each chapter.

Reviews - What do customers think about Living Sacrifices: For Those Dying To Rise To A Life Worth Giving?

Great read and study guide!  Aug 27, 2003
"Living Sacrifices" is dedicated to all those who struggle and sacrifice daily to give the best of themselves to the many they love . . . Life that is worth the giving! The author, James Haywood Rolling, Jr., has written this book as God's call to each of us to live an important life - a life destined for us by God. It follows the general themes of chapter 12 of Romans in the New Testament. Within its twelve chapters, Part 1 of the book views the fullness of God's sacrificial mercy; Part 2 shows God's provision for us; Part 3 reveals the power and authority we have to fight against evil. Our fight is against Satan's power over us. By putting on the armor of God vividly spelled out for us in the Bible and in this book, we can win the war.

The book is well written, easy to understand, and filled with wonderful scripture verses and thought-provoking parables and vignettes taken from the author's own life. He also opens each chapter with his own original poetry which is filled with deep emotion and stark reality. Each chapter ends with a special STOP AND THINK message that can be adapted to the reader's life to help live a life without self-importance, self-reliance, and self-indulgence â€" A LIFE WORTH GIVING. Mr. Rolling has a command of the written word and writes in artistically vivid imagery as if he's painting his words upon a canvas. He opens his heart and his life to us and we can see his pain, his recovery, and his revelation. This is not another one of those dry, boring, 10-step, self-help books. This is the blossoming of a life once filled with "self" into one of God's ambassadors ready for a ministry. Mr. Rolling's spiritual gift as an artist is evident in his verbiage and writing style.

I recommend this book to all Christian readers interested in learning how to walk a closer walk with their Lord and Savior and to view their lives with their eyes turned away from themselves and back onto God. Despite the fact that the book is well written, there are, however, a few proofreading errors. I would have given this book four stars if it wasn't for these errors! If the reader can overlook these, this makes a great read and study guide for the Christian's daily life.

On Becoming Successful: A Practical and Spiritual Guide  May 25, 2003
"Living Sacrifices" is a practical, and spiritually lead guide on how to live a successful life. I highly recommend this book. It caused me to reflect on the fact that we all have the tendency to be concerned with our own achievement - almost to excess! This way of living leads to destruction as we distance ourselves from loved ones, family, community and ultimately our Creator. "Living Sacrifices" suggests that we cooperate, be humble and become unselfish according to basic principles found in the Christian Bible.

I will be able to share "Living Sacrifices" with my great aunt as well as my teenaged niece because the writing is beautifully direct and straight forward. The author, James Rolling, weaves personal reflection, poetry and biblical references in this text. I also thought I would order additional copies for my co-workers as holiday gifts. It is for anyone who wants to achieve their personal best and see a significant change for the better -ultimately in the eyes of the Creator.
