Audacious: A Book Review

About The Book:

Thirty years in the making, Audacious is a deep dive into the message that has compelled Beth Moore to serve women around the globe. Glancing over the years of ministry behind her and strengthening her resolve to the call before her, she came to the realization that her vision for women was incomplete. It lacked something they were aching for. Something Jesus was longing for. Beth identifies that missing link by digging through Scripture, unearthing life experiences, and spotlighting a turning point with the capacity to infuse any life with holy passion and purpose. What was missing? Well, let’s just say, it’s audacious and it’s for all of us. And it’s the path to the life you were born to live.



About The Author:

Beth Moore is a writer and teacher of best-selling books and Bible studies whose public speaking engagements carry her all over the United States. A dedicated wife and mother of two adult daughters, Moore lives in Houston, Texas, where she is president and founder of Living Proof Ministries.

My Review

Oh I love me some Beth Moore, so when the opportunity to read and review Audacious, I jumped at the chance. I have been a fan of Moore for several years, participating in several of her DVD Bible Studies, and even seeing her live three years ago for one of her conferences. She has impacted me greatly in my walk with God!

Now back to the book. Audacious was a lovely read. While a small book, it is seriously loaded with a ton of personal stories that will encourage you to dive deep into a relationship with Christ. The book was a quick read, and with each word read, I felt like Beth was right in the room with me reading or teaching. Using humor, personal story, and writing in a conversational manner, Beth did a remarkable job teaching about how to truly live an audacious life with Christ. I really loved all the book but here are a few favorite quotes:

“To love God more is never to love people less. It’s to love people best. It’s to relieve them of the responsibility of being your false Christ. It’s to keep their sins against you from being unforgivable and your sins against them from being ignorable. It’s to guard them from our mean-streaks and strong human tendencies to respond to disappointment with punishment. It’s to keep the people close by from cutting their wrists on the razor-sharp blades of our insecurities. It’s to dull the edge of our cravings to be adored. It’s to untie the double knots of codependency. It’s to let the affirmations of others be the overflow and not the essential source of our emotional survival. To love God is to guard man.” 

"To live the life we long for, we want people around us to recognize with their chins dropped that we have something beyond what our education and training can explain. That goes for you even if you earned a doctorate. Our lives were meant to exceed what a natural course of events could explain. We want people to see that, what we have, we could only get from being with Jesus."

This book has truly impacted me and I cannot wait to read more from her again soon!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
