I am Second By Doug Bender & Dave Sterrett
Real stories by real people. Loved this book right from the first story. People tell their stories of how God broke them and made them realize that they need to live for him, not themselves or someone else. Drugs, Sex, Alcohol, Pornography. There are no holds barred, no sugar coating it. Addictions, Anger, Resentment, Abuse. All things that hold people back, ruin minds and lives, but this book tells how each person overcame those obstacles and started putting God first, and everyone and everything else, including themselves, second.
From rockstars to pastors, from soldiers to everyday people. We all face trials in our lives, we all have struggles. There is sure to be something in this book that you can relate to. One thing I really liked was that I could read a couple stories and then come back to it later as it’s compiled of stories from real people around the world. I prefer these type of books sometimes because I am on the go so much, that if I didn’t get a chance to read for a few days, I never had to remember what happened in the previous chapter as each chapter is it’s own short story.
I would recommend this book to sinner and saved alike. This book may help you realize the struggles in your own life keeping you from letting God be number 1. Sometimes it’s hard to let go and let God, but we are not alone.
