True North Book


Book:  True North
Authors: Gary & Lisa Heim

This book is one of the best Ihave ever read in this genre.  The book is authored by a husband and wife who are counselors sharing their experiences in this book.  True North is very sound Biblically in its approach, which is very important because it provides a solid foundation of Truth.  It is written from the heart which is so evident the moment you pick up and begin reading .
Gary and Lisa share their lives with us, they write simply yet so profoundly.  Anyone who reads this book will be able to understand what is being taught, as well as challenged to act upon it personally as well as in small group settings.  I found myslef at times confessing as God revealed to me my sins and to allow Him to change me, turing to Him for all my needs.
True North is an excellent resource for small groups as well.  There are questions at the end of each chapter, the authors also have a website with resources, a blog, and more.  I found this book to be so very different from other books that are written to help.  It isn’t written for acdemic thinkers, it is written for everyday human believers.  A path is laid in the book that is so simple because Jesus is simple,  the Gospel is simple.  Yet, it is also tr beue that as Jesus was a stumbling block some may find this book to like tht as well.  When truth about oursleves is revealed, we sometimes  stumble by using own man made ways to deal with it.  The truth is God is th only way to true freedom, and it is liberating.
So, if you can do read this book and share it with others.  The Truth is we have always before us a choice of which way to turn, either to God or what our hands have made, gods, which aren’t really satisfying or liberating because they aren’t meant to be the answer.  God is the only answer, the only way regardless of what the world says or does.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
