I think I’m one of seven Christian women on the planet who has never read Beth Moore. There’s no real reason why – I know her stuff is powerful – I just never got around to it. So when the chance came to review one of her books, I had no more excuses!
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.
Okay, I’m not sure really how to explain myself with this review. I’ll say this first: I couldn’t get into this book. The writing is by no means terrible, there’s no heresy or outlandish ideas, I just wasn’t into it and struggled to get through it. It’s a bit strange to say the material didn’t keep my interest when it’s a book to help in your faith, but it didn’t keep my attention.
Sometimes it’s not the right time for me to read a book. And when that happens, I lose interest and it’s hard for me to get it back.
I do think this is a book I’d be willing to pick up again in the future though.
Am I the only one who this has happened to?!
