Book Review: Freedom from Performing
"Freedom from Performing: Grace in an Applause-Driven World", written by Becky Harling, is a Bible study like no other. The book is jam-packed with insightful information for all of us "performers". Included in this book is a 12 week Bible Study, Daily Bible Study, Words from our Savior, and prayers using Scripture. Becky also showcases a parable of Jesus in each chapter!
This book is the perfect Bible Study for groups or individuals! I can see myself leading a Bible Study using only this book and a Bible. There are chapters that can be read and discussed as a group and then there are individual daily studies to bring it all home. I was very impressed with this book. It was an easy read. I understood everything that Becky was saying and often felt that she must know me personally. She tells all "performers" how to let go of past hurts and move on to a grace filled life! I recommend this book to anyone who is a "performer"- someone who is looking for the approval of others.
I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
