Seven Day Christian by Brad Wilcox, LDS Blog Tour


Christianity is facing great opposition. No one is being thrown to lions, but many followers of Christ face persecution because of their beliefs. At the very least, most know how it feels to end up on the wrong side of a "politically correct" conversation. More than ever before, we need believing and behaving disciples—men and women who are ready to stand up and stand together to change the world as early Christians did: one righteous choice at a time.
Filled with personal experiences and insightful stories, this book emphasizes the importance of living in accordance with our values every single day, with practical suggestions for how to actually pull it off. "Christ doesn't just want people to acknowledge His grace," writes Brad Wilcox. "He wants them to be transformed through it. He doesn't just want people to come to Him. He wants them to become like Him— a process that takes place 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of our lives.

My Review:

I LOVED this book! Anyone who is Christian will find it uplifting, helpful and full of great advice for living their lives like Christ every day of the week.  I found reading this book to be addicting!  I seriously could not get enough and found myself pulling out my highlighter (which I NEVER do) and highlighting things that I wanted to remember.  The pages flew by so quickly...too quickly for me.  I found myself grateful I highlighted because once I was finished I immediately turned back to my highlights and shared them with my husband and family members.  Wilcox has an easy to read, straight forward manner of writing.  His personal stories along with quotes by other well known people coupled with his own amazing words makes for a book that I could not get enough of!  Anyone who wants to pattern their life after Christ will benefit from this book!  It is full of positive and uplifting ways to help you live your life after the example of the Savior.   One of my favorite parts was the story concerning C.S. Lewis.  My favorite quote from the book I must share!  " God did not remove the Red Sea, He opened it: He will help us find a way through our problems as well.  The light does always reveal distant landscapes; sometimes it gives us just enough vision to get us through one day at a time."  These are words to live by!  Five brilliant stars and I would give it more if it would let me!  I recommend this book to any Christian striving to be a better person!
