I actually liked this book better than his other two books (In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day and Wild Goose Chase).  However, this book deals with the concept of loving God with our heart, soul, mind and strength.  He takes the reader into a creative journey of discovering what it is that made the early Christians so vibrant, passionate, and active in their faith. 

He points out that we need to look back in order to move forward.  I truly hearing his thoughts about taking captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ which includes not just the negative thoughts which so often defines it.  But also taking every good thing and focusing on it with all of our energy so that we can accomplish in a Christ-like fashion. 

Overall, his book is very good.  His concepts aren’t truly new, but they are profound if you do them, which is the whole point of being a Christian anyways.  Don’t simply know what you believe, do what you believe with your heart, soul, mind and strength.
