Book Review: God in Slow Motion

Leave a comment

I tend to find myself in a hurry more than I’d like to be.  In fact, it was my own feelings of needing to slow down that led me to review this book “God in Slow Motion” by Mike Nappa.

I really wanted to love this book, but I really struggled.  While the book makes excellent points about delving deeper into our destiny and the purpose that God has for us instead of speeding through life at a fast pace, it never fully captured my attention.  Perhaps that is part of the struggle that the book is trying to get us to dissect; however, I felt that it took intense dedication to really get at the heart of what the book was saying.  At times, I found it to be too wordy, and I found the author’s writing style difficult to digest.  Thus, while the content was good, I struggled to actually enjoy it and found it difficult to read.

I would recommend this book, with reservations.  Because the content is good, I wouldn’t want someone to miss the message.  But because of the struggle that I had with the writing style, I would definitely be selective about who I recommended it to.  Nevertheless, I believe that the message of the book is worthy of us understanding and paying attention to.
