Reviews - What do customers think about Soul Obsession: When God's Primary Pursuit Becomes Your Life's Driving Passion?
"must read" for all Christians Oct 26, 2006
Former gangleader Nicky Cruz relates many of his experiences as a Christian in pursuit of winning souls. In so doing, he relates many insights into prayer/faith/evangelism and there is a lot of "hands on" wisdom that will definitely help Christians in their daily walk. If you need a spiritual "reality check" then this book is for you. The author's zeal and passion for evangelism is very evident and is sure to rekindle one's faith and desire for winning souls for the Kingdom. A great read and one I highly recommend.
A New Challenge, Aug 2, 2006
This book is a stimulating and an inspired read. I heard of Nicky Cruz some 25 years ago and remembered reading his book "Run Baby Run". I thought I'd try to find that book to buy for someone special to read and I came across this book. I decided to buy this one also. I couldn't have made a better decision.
This book is very carefully put together. This author's writing style is very easy to read but also very thought provoking at the same time. You know exactly what he's trying to say, there's no beating around the bush here. He is very clear, direct and honest.
From the time I received this book in the mail I had a hard time putting it down. I couldn't stop reading about the powerful experiences this man of God has been lead into in his life. He seems to know just what to say to Christians today or maybe it's his willingness to let God speak through him.
If you're feeling a little tired or stale in your walk with God, this book will sure wake you up and get you moving. If you feel comfortable and relaxed, this book will also wake you and get you moving. If you're ready for a challenge, get this book and read it.
Read this book and let yourself be convicted to give over your whole world to God.
Passionate Jul 11, 2006
Nicky Cruz has been described as the "Billy Graham" for the inner city, a fact that is evident in this book.
I wouldn't say that Nicky is a "writer" but he is passionate about what he writes so one can overlook the sometimes spotty narratives. His heart is blatantly displayed for all to see and in it, I believe, we can truly get a glimpse of God's heart for his people.
Very Uplifting Dec 2, 2005
"Soul Obsession" is a great blessing to the body of Christ. It is filled with inspiring testimonies about the love and power of God as He works in dark, needy lives.
The author also openly shares about God's love, guidance and provisions to him as he's served the Lord over the past 40+years; he speaks of God's faithfulness in the face of his weaknesses and vulnerabilities. This makes Soul Obsession very encouraging to those serving the Lord in any capacity.
I found the book easy to read and had some good laughs in the process. The stories are very engaging - emotional at certain times and humorous at others but never losing the anointing that makes God so real while reading it.
The title of the book represents its text in a rather indirect way. The text does not lecture the reader on HOW TO make Christ one's soul obsession, rather it paints a picture of lives sold out to God.
