Book Review: Undaunted by Christine Caine
Daunted. Not a word I use very often so not a word I thought much of until I read Undaunted: Daring to do what God calls you to do by Christine Cain. To be Undaunted is to allow us to not be stopped or discouraged by the challenges we face in life but rather to allow God to use our lives to help others.
I could hardly put this book down. Christine Cain writes in such a fashion that this book was a page turner for me. I found her story to be inspiring, and by the end of this book, I felt like God could use me to make a difference in the world as well. Instead of giving in to discouragement in our disappointments, Cain encourages us to let God use those parts of our lives and to remember that something better awaits us. Throughout much of the book, she shares some of the challenges and difficulties that she has overcome in life. She also includes steps to help overcome disappointment and to work through fear that could be holding you back from living your life the way God wants you to. She did inspire me to feel that God will change me and then help me to bring hope and change to others in this world that need it--if I will look to Him and let Him work in my life. This book left me wanting--wanting to go into the world and to share Jesus' love with those in the dark and troubled places. I pray God will show me my next steps.
I would recommend this book to anyone but especially to those who are feeling hopeless and daunted. . .This would be a great book to do with a group. However, there aren't any questions in the back for discussion but there is an Undaunted Discussion Guide book and 5-session DVD available from Zondervan for groups to use.
I received this book from Booksneeze at no charge. I was not required to write a positive review.
