People of the Second Chance: A Guide to Bringing Life-Saving Love to the World by Mike Foster is my 8th read of the year and I couldn’t put it down. I’ve been following the POTSC movement for a few years now and this book was timely.
We are all flawed and broken and God uses them for good.
This is the overall message of this book. It’s more than that though. It takes real strength to be vulnerable and transparent with our brokenness. Most of us hide behind ours too afraid to make them known. Mike’s transparency and heart in this book is palpable throughout. Mike invites us to live as God’s beloved instead of living a life of shame, guilt, and fear.
Some of this book repeated what I’ve already been told before but I believe when something is continuously repeated, it’s almost as if God Himself is trying to get my attention. We need to be told often we are loved, chosen, and accepted. I can’t think of a single moment while reading this where I didn’t begin to see things in a different way. It shed light on things I was doing to myself and to others close to me.
I highly recommend this book if you struggle with fear, guilt, or have some hang up you’re allowing to control you. It may be something from your past and even now in the present. It’s a very quick read.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
