{book review} Passion: The Light of Glory

I've been listening to Passion as long as I can remember.  I've dreamed of attending one of the Passion conferences since I was 12.  The CDs and songbooks played a vital part in my musical education.  Christy Nockels inspired my vocals, Chris Tomlin and David Crowder my guitar...

When I saw that Louie Giglio had put together a book for Passion I was all over it.   I mean it.  Like seriously, it was in my Amazon cart the same day I found out about it.  Until I saw that I could get it in one of my book review programs (happppppppy daaaaaance!!!).

Passion: The Bright Light of Glory is a compilation of all the best sermons from the various speakers at Passion over the years.  Stories and insights from passionate believers like John Piper, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, and even Louie Giglio himself fill the pages with inspiring words, challenging the next generation to rise up and be real for Jesus.  Isaiah 26:8 sets the stage for Passion's mission--that the Name and renown of Jesus Christ would be the desire of our souls.  How are we going to act on that desire?

As I read through this book, all I could say to the people around me was, "Oh my gosh, it's just so good.  You just have to read it.  It's so good."  Chapter after chapter, I continued to be blown away.  Encouragement on one page, deep challenge on the next.  Conviction on one page, grace on the next. Some of the chapters so deeply challenged me and twisted my brain into such awesome knots (thank you, John Piper)... I also really enjoyed the diversity between the teachers.

I'm so grateful for the passion of each of these individuals for the Lord Jesus Christ.  This book was fantastic--an excellent read for anyone looking to grow in their faith, to be challenged to live out their theology, to be emboldened with the weight of Gospel.

I give Passion: The Light of Glory 5 out of 5 stars!

Check it out on Amazon HERE.

I received this book free of charge from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
