Reviews - What do customers think about A Guidebook to Waking the Dead: Embracing the Life God Has for You?
Excellent Resource Feb 2, 2007
This book is co-written with Craig McConnell. It is a good book that will help you take Waking the Dead to a whole new level. It follows the book chapter by chapter and is in a nice easy format to use. Each chapter begins and ends with a check on 'Where is your heart now?' Kind of checking in on where you are. When I worked through this with my buddy Pastor Bob, this was our check in where we were. While working through this, we both went through hard times; I lost a job I loved and his wife was let go and spent a long time off of work, right after they bought a new house. This book helped us process those events and many others in our presents and our pasts.
This workbook has fewer subsections than the Wild At Heart Field Manual, The areas are the: · Heart Monitor · A First Reaction · The Big Ideas It used pillows/clouds for Big Ideas to outline where the chapter will go and then has sections for each. To Clarify goes deeper than the book on specific points or outlines them in a deeper level.
As a workbook there is lots of space for answers, even going back and writing answers again and again, each time you work through it. Bob liked a new feature and I did not, for some of the tougher questions have examples from members of the Ransomed Heart team. Bob liked those because they gave you more food-for-thought when you were unsure how to answer. I found them annoying because I often took the question a different direction they did, and if I read them first, it often limited how I perceived the questions.
Overall this book is an excellent resource for working with the book Waking the Dead and for growing into a deeper understanding of your life in Christ.
good companion to the book Nov 10, 2006
This journal is a great companion to the book "Waking the Dead." Upon first reading the book I wasn't completely captured by it, but the journal really explores the book in a deeper way - great for group discussion or individually.
thinking someone picked some green sour grapes back there Feb 5, 2005
I read Wild at Heart when it first came out even though I'm a woman. I'm a wild-at-heart woman who knows that the Lord desires to have us "run with abandon" toward Him. This book was inspiring even with some gender distractions ... I might recommmend that the person who read this book and deemed it worthless might back up if s/he is really seeking an exciting relationship with the Lord and read Divine Romance or Journey of the Heart and be daring enough to let The Lover look into his heart!
Great guidebook Jun 27, 2004
I love this book...and the guidebook. This isn't a typical study guide that asks obvious questions that can be easily discerned from just reading the text. It's not a "mindlessly answer the questions" kind of guidebook. No, this one makes one think...and causes one to digest and process the lifechanging truths in the book. I personally enjoyed reading the authors sharing their hearts because it made me feel "normal"...and it made the authors feel human. This book and guidebook are among my most favorite books and most lifechanging.
Great Perspective Mar 29, 2004
I am always baffled when I read reviews like the one below. Eldridge's message is so relevant today. I've worked through many workbooks where I sometimes wish I knew how others feel. Sometimes, I just need a jump-start because some of us are dealing with these issues for the first time. I might suggest that if the author's answering of the questions are that loathesome to you, why are you reading his book to begin with?
