Altar Ego by Craig Groeschel

This book is full of wisdom and practical advice for all. With utmost humility and tact Groeschel delivers key truths through personal stories and experiences that come from a genuine and refreshing walk with Christ. While the book is not some intense and exegetical work, it is still a valuable resource.

I often picture books like this as a chance for the reader to sit and listen to the teaching of someone who has walked with Christ for many years. With the conversational style that characterizes Groeschel's writing you feel as though he is simply talking with you as you read. As I mentioned before, this book is not some earth-shattering, mind-blowing theological piece that you can only take in small amounts; ostensibly you could read this book in a day. However, in spite of the simplicity of the message and the lessons presented, this book hits home in may key areas and truly challenges the reader to examine if their life is centered on themselves or on Christ.
