Reviews - What do customers think about One-Trick Pony?
One Trick Pony Feb 14, 2007
Phil Long has a gift for explaining Christ through down-to-earth stories that really catch your heart off guard. He asks the reader to look at society and culture that is influencing the reader's life every day... and then he challenges the reader to give up all the desires and idols that pull them away from Christ. This quick read will give you a new outlook on what true love (love as created by God) is like and how you can share in that love.
my husband bought 15 copies!! Jan 4, 2007
We enjoyed this book so much my husband bought 15 copies for friends and family. It's a book you don't put down until you are finished.
One Trick Pony - a heart to heart chat Jan 4, 2007
One Trick Pony takes you by the heart and guides you to places you think you've been to, but haven't! From the moment I opened the first page, I became caught up in the stories, humor, unforgettable descriptions of everyday encounters but from a fresh perspective, and I couldn't put the book down until the final page. It simply must be read by as many as possible! Hearts will be forever changed and lives will be enriched.
Simply, Excellent. Jan 3, 2007
I am not much of a reviewer so here it goes. This book is excellent.
Ever wonder what it looks like to follow Jesus? Phil Long is a talented writer and a deep thinker who tackles this question. If you don't like reading, it is enjoyable and humorous, if you are an intellectual, it will make you think.
Buy this book.
A book that has teeth. Jan 3, 2007
In the book One Trick Pony, Phillip E. Long pushes the reader to explore one deep, yet seemingly simple idea. He really doesn't have a lot of surprises for the reader in terms of his point. The beauty of Phillip's book comes in how he puts together story after story to illustrate his primary idea, with the intent to grab the heart of the reader and motivate him or her to do something with the information, rather than just have the info as another feather in their cap.
Phillip's book has very little value to the person unwilling to let their heart be moved to living and being differently. However it has enormous value to anyone who is ready to be challenged by a man who has clearly wrestled with his own faith in Jesus and who has come out of the match with conviction that has teeth to it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone willing to come face to face with their own need to start living and loving sacrificially.
