Another gem from Meeks Nov 11, 2002
Okay, so I wrote the review for one of this guy's other books, "How to get out of debt-and into praise." Like I said then, I'm not a religious person and I was very doubtful. But since the debt book was good, I thought I'd check this one out on my own. IT WAS AMAZING! He is different from any kind of preacher/writer that I've ever experienced in that he actually makes the bible make sense and uses it to confront real life issues that you're dealing with. The book compares different breeds of dogs to different types of men that women date. The book is absolutely hilarious (I laughed so hard in places that it made my stomach hurt), but it's not silly-he balances humor with information so well that your attention is glued and you can't put the book down (I finished it in a weekend). Moreover, it offers biblically based recommendations for single men and women to help us avoid destructive and hurtful relationships, and also good advice on how to choose prospective lovers. While it is religious, the book is real, and not afraid to "go there" and talk about anything, even sex. After I read the book, I was delighted to find out that there was also a video available of the sermon upon which this book is based--and after I viewed it I realized just how unique, animated and charismatic this man is (my image of him was of an old, country Baptist preacher, but it turns out that he is very young and very aware of issues relevant to young people). Any minister who makes the bible something relevant to society and to my age group is all right with me. Definitely worth the ten bucks to buy for yourself and your single friends. Keep 'em coming, Reverend!!
"Straight from the thrown of God" Nov 2, 2002
While reading this book my soul was praising God. This book was right on time. (Straight from the thrown of God) It wasn't something just to "tickle our fancys". It wasn't something that was all up in the flesh just to make yourself look good, because no one can interupt you because you're the "pastor". This book ministered to me on a whole new level. I don't feel that my spirit has ever been ministered to so well, I know this book was inspired by God because it fit my situation head on. Many people were trying to tell me things about my relationships, but it was hard for me to receive it because they were looking at things through the natural eye. So when I began to read this book I was like oh my God, how could he know exactly what I've been through, and what I'm going through right now. Always knowing that it was God. It just seemed so impossible. (Yeah I know God can do the IMPOSSIBLE and he can do above all that we can even imagine) I want to thank God for sending his word just for me. I thank God for ministering exactly what I needed and letting me know that he's still with me. I mean it's like I'm here in Bainbridge, Ga and God used you all the way in Seattle, Washington. I just can't thank Him enough. I just really thank you (Revered J.T. Meeks) for allowing God to speak through you.
Loved It Aug 18, 2002
I got this book through my book club, and loved it. It took me a couple of hours to go through it. Pastor breaks down the type of dogs and women who are out to use you and not necessarily love you. Highly recommended for the ones searching for that special someone.
