Good Read Oct 19, 2009
This book was very informative and thought provoking. It really stretched my efforts in trying to become a better person and made me look at what it must be like with little time left here on earth. WE all should live like this every day.
I'd quit procrastinating... but I'm not a quitter. Oct 14, 2009
I'd quit procrastinating... but I'm not a quitter. "One Month to Live" may actually help you quit procrastinating and get on with living a more intentional, influential life. How will you live your life? Kerry & Chris Shook challenge the reader to sign off on this commitment: "I commit with God's strength to live the next thirty days as if they are my last so I can experience life to the full!" The one chapter a day format is intended to help you make the most of that commitment. Inspirational quotes, Scripture and examples from the authors' lives are used to encourage and motivate the reader. Some will find this book life changing, empowering. Others will agree completely with the main concepts and gain from some of the great quotes and Scripture passages but long for less repetition and more depth. I find myself in the second category. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars.

Teachng it! Aug 29, 2009
A good friend gave this book to me after visiting the Shook's church in Houston. I read the book and mentally took the Thirty Day Challenge. Later in the year, I presented it to my Adult Bible Fellowship class as a possible study topic. They class excitedly agreed to take the challenge. After preparing for to teach the class and reviewing the avaiable DVD guide, I became even more taken with the OMTL concept. I will begin leading the OMTL challenge this weekend. My wife and my daughter are taking the challenge together. It has already got me thinking in e new way and look at life as more valuable. Take the Challenge.
