Book Review: Unstuck by Arnie Cole and Michael Ross

To-do lists and Bible studies abound, but Unstuck is different.  The authors first make a convincing case, based on quantitative and qualitative research, that engaging with the Bible regularly has significant benefits for followers of Christ.  The authors studied a variety of factors that affected spiritual growth and fostered spiritual maturity among Christians.  The key factor was this: Christians who interact with God through the Bible at least four times per week reaped significant spiritual benefits.  Benefits included resistance to temptation, power to overcome past trauma, and joy in the journey of life.

Unstuck explores why we become “stuck,” i.e. stalled or stale in our walk with God.  The book then leads the believer to a living, two-way relationship with God.  The vehicle for this relationship is Scripture—letting it get into us, speak to our lives and change us.  Unstuck advocates for Bible reading with the expectation that God will show up!

This book is designed for individual study and is also suitable for use in a small group setting.

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House for review.
