The Walk by Shaun Alexander Book Review

“It’s Satan that says you have to be perfect.  But God says something different.  He says you have to be obedient.”

That quote struck me and stuck with me.  It seems a powerful quote.  Isn’t that the amazing truth though?  God isn’t looking for you to be perfect.  He knows that it is impossible.  We are human and we can’t do it.  

So what can you do to walk closer to God that is not trying to be perfect?  Shaun Alexander has those answers in his book, The Walk.  Shaun clearly points out the different stages of walking with God.  There are five stages and they are: 1. The Unbeliever, 2. The Believer, 3. The Example, 4. The Teacher and 5. The Imparter.  Each person falls into one of those stages.  

Shaun has outlined in his book what each stage is and how to know if you are there.  He reminds us that we must go through the stages starting at the first stage and working our way through to the fifth.  We can not be an Unbeliever, and jump to being an Example or Teacher.  Each stage must be worked through, according to each person’s own time line.

The Walk is written in a way that you can easily work through your walk with God and understand where you are at each step.  It’s not just the walking and God parts, we can’t forget the most important word in that sentence, with.  

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  I have not been told to post this review in any way, this is my own opinion.
