Whole by Steve Wiens Review
Look around, and you'll notice: The world is covered with jagged edges. People and places are broken all around us.
We were made for better than this: We were made to be whole, and wholly human, to tend a world that is wholly humane. We were made in the image of God. This book is a quest to recover that image in ourselves and our neighbors, to help us all become human and humane again.
For Christians who lament the brokenness in themselves, their neighbors, and the world around them, Whole offers a rallying cry to pursue wholeness together.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review Q&A-
- What did you like about the book and why? The way the author presents his theories and brings the reader much needed points to benefit them.
- What did you not like about the book and why? I did not like the tone has it is more of an all in or none setting.
- What did you learn? I was surprised by the different views of the author and how he chose to spin the stories in with the facts he was trying to get across. Overall I feel like if as the reader, you know what this book is about and pick it up anyway, you will not be disappointed, but maybe more undecided.
- To whom would you recommend this book and why? This is one of those special topic books, that a reader should want to engage in, before committing to reading it. I think people with stronger binding faith of an older age would benefit the most.
