All fo us have nagging aspects of our lives that call to our consciences for change. James MacDonald provides a clear biblical process to turn the nagging voice within to rejoicing as your life changes for His glory. -- Joseph Stowell- President, Moody Bible Institute
How refreshing to read a book both practical and powerful about change. James has dusted off bibliocentric principles and with a World Wide Web relevance made them transferable for today. After working for twenty-five years in the heart of New York City in a holistic minstry that sees change take place daily, I highly recommend this book as manual for transformation. -- Tom Mahairas- Pastor, Manhattan Bible Church
James MacDonald is the pastor of a thriving, growing church on the outskirts of Chicago. He is a dynamic new voice with a biblically based message that is much needed in the church today. This book gets the heart of what needs to take place if we are going to really see genuine and lasting change in our lives. I highly recommend both James's ministry and his powerful new book to you. -- Greg Laurie- Pastor, Harvest Christian Fellowship
This the ideal book for people who are serious about seeing lasting changes take place in their character and conduct. The author is both compassionate and confrontational- no kid gloves! You with either read it through and honestly put it into practice, or you will invent another excuse for staying as you are. I hope it's the first option. You won't regret it. -- Warren W. Wiersbe- Author and Conference Speaker
Though the church seems increasingly confused about how change occurs in the life of a believer, careful study ofhe Word of God once again brings the issue of sanctification into clear focus. James MacDonald takes a very practical look at real change through the lens of truth. -- Dr. John MacArthur- Pastor, Grace Community Church

James MacDonald does an excellent job of pointing out wrong ways we go about change and gives a mandate for serious change. I couldn't put this book down - it's honest, biblical, and serious about change, do not buy this book unless you are serious about change. Then, and only then, will this book be profitable to you. May this book be as beneficial to you as it already has for me - I gurantee you that you will not leave this book without some sort of positive change.
The strategies only work if you commit and put faith in God.
To so cavalierly disregard other methods of help as he does in Chapter 1 does nothing to further along the process of helping those truly in need. What he is doing is telling a drowning person to swim harder, rather than throwing them a life preserver. I found the advice similar to that of a misguided individual who told a friend that their child died of cancer because they did not pray hard enough.
Yes, I believe in God and Jesus Christ as my savior. However, I do not believe an individual unskilled in alternative therapies, as the author appears to be, should disregard meaningful help that can be used in addition to a solid belief in God and His tender mercies.
Any one struggling with covert depression tendencies or trying to make sense of emotional distress will find the author's suggestions simplistic and a retread of what can be heard from the pulpit on Sunday.
