Book Review- Thrive

You've probably heard the words 'Live out your faith' dozens, if not hundreds, of times, but what does that phrase really mean? And how do you really follow Jesus in today's world? In this student adaptation of his book Thrive, Casting Crowns' Mark Hall explores exactly what it means when your faith and your life collide, and how you can take the next steps in making that faith real and evident to those around you. Using relatable stories, applications you can use, as well as some life lessons, Hall shows how you can root yourself in the truth and grow strong in your beliefs as you become the person God designed you to be.

Mark Hall takes the 'Live out your faith' concept we all think we know about to a further step. The book is broken into two parts: Digging Deep and Reaching Out. With quick wit, truth, and grace Mark Hall tackles these topics with a Biblical and personal view and a sprinkle of testimonials. At the end of each chapter Mark highlights the Point to Remember making the overall message easier to remember for the reader. 

Many authors today try to water down the word of God to make it attractive to teens, but not so with this book. On the other hand this book is best fit for a somewhat mature Christian.

If you desire a devotional to lead you in a closer relationship with Jesus this is for you. If you want a spiritual read to lead you in deep reflection of your spiritual condition this is for you. If you are a high-school student, then this is definitely for you.
