HASH(0x9bb8ae88) out of 5 stars Great Book to Strengthen Your Walk June 1 2014
By PhyllisW - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
“The Red Letter Life, 17 Words From Jesus to Inspire, Practical, Purposeful Living” by Bob Hostetler ranks as one of his best non-fiction books.

The book is based on seventeen words or phases that are key to the life of a Christian. Like Bob’s other non-fiction works the tone is casual and easy to read while at the same time being challenging and thought provoking. When I read this book, I could almost hear him speaking to me! I particularly enjoyed the combination of Scripture, personal stories and quotes from other authors that provided a deep exploration of the chapter topic.

It took me a while to read and digest this book. Each chapter caused me to pause and reflect. I often read chapters multiple times. While the words and message were simple and clear, I needed the time to let the words sink deep into my heart. Each chapter concludes with a ‘Final Word’, which offers an opportunity to respond to the chapter. I found most of the exercises very meaningful.

This spring has been extremely difficult for my family and I was in need of spiritual renewal and healing. Each chapter offered practical words to deepen and revive my relationship with Christ. This book has been most helpful in moving me forward and I plan to reread the book regularly.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to revive or deeper their walk with Christ. While this book may appear to be quick easy read, it is quite deep and meaningful.

NOTE: I was provided with a complimentary copy of the book to review, but I was under no obligation to write anything other than my own critique.

HASH(0x9bb16390) out of 5 stars A fresh look at timeless truth for everyone. June 2 2014
By DH 4 Jesus - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Red Letter Life is going to be one of those books that serve some as a ready primer to the Christian Faith. Others will read and reread it throughout their lives as a go-to book for encouragement, teaching or reminder of what Jesus is all about.

Bob Hostetler's easy style is rich and encouraging and readable without ever feeling like he's insulting the reader. There's depth to challenge the aggressive reader and simplicity to make this a coffee table book or gift for others.

Red Letter Life introduces readers to Christianity, but it may not be the "Jesus" many think they know. We learn that while the way to God is open to everyone, it is not a way that is easy for anyone. It was costly to Jesus and is often costly to genuine followers but Bob shows that the cost of following Jesus is more than worth it considering the benefits that come from knowing Christ.

I like these lines: "If your heart is hurting, come [to Jesus]. If your soul feels like it is shrinking, come. If your strength is depleted, come." This is not Christianity "lite," and it is not highfalutin' religiosity. This is Jesus on display and it's worth your time to read it.

NOTE: I was provided with a complimentary copy of the book to review, but I was under no obligation to write anything other than my own critique.

HASH(0x9ba3042c) out of 5 stars Simple Words with a Powerful message June 4 2014
By Deborah L Stacy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Red Letter Life stresses to the reader 17 simple words Jesus speaks in the Bible such as faith, follow, hear, come, repent, take, beware, bring, abide, and more. Some of the words may often get passed over without taking time to ponder what effect they could have in one's life.

This book is not only a great read for a new believer, but also a book of application for believers that draws the reader closer to Jesus, helps the reader examine one's personal encounter(s) with Jesus, bringing clarity, healing and restoration in many areas of life.

The Red Letter Life is filled with Scripture, everyday experiences, reason and many other Christian writers who help readers understand the importance of these simple words. This book challenges the reader with thought and life provoking questions that can provoke change and healing, restoration and confirmation and growth and holiness.

In the words of a student quoted in the book, "one thing I've noticed is that if you really are going to start living this way and you start making big changes in your life, eventually it starts to change who you are from the inside out. . ." Are you up for the challenge?

HASH(0x9c782324) out of 5 stars He delivers on his title promise: simple, practical, purposeful Jan. 16 2015
By Charles Huff - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this book for individual study for anyone looking for a simple but deeper walk with Jesus. However, I feel it is designed and formatted--perhaps for better application to a person's life--for a group study. It is easy to read through this discussion of 17 key words in Jesus' ministry and glean what you need at the moment. However, taking 17 weeks with an accountability partner or group would strengthen the application of every word instead of the few that might grab your attention. Bob stays true to the title through his faith-centered presentation of each word. Unlike many self-help or -improvement books, he does not give you a list of activities which will make you a successful Christian. Instead, he opens the meanings, uses, and application of these words through a closer relationship with Jesus and faith. I call it a very timely book for renewing the fire of the Holy Spirit in the church.

Bob is a studier and a good storyteller, making me see Jesus' words in a fresh way. I've used it over and over for Bible Study and writing. Red Letters....these are Jesus' words, and this is how we see God's character.
