The Life Giver by Joey LeTourneau: a book review


The Life Giver by Joey LeTournesu is a radical book, a book which if treated seriously could change your life. The books main point is god gives his grace freely to his children so that they may give it to others. The author obviously has a heart of compassion as several of his illustrations throughout the book prove. His concern for the orphan is noteworthy.

The early chapters of this book lay a foundation for the rest of the book and are an essential part of his teaching. He outlines how he came to be so passionately concerned with blessing others. His parents were examples to him of how to bless others.

He then moves onto to the importance of our relationship with the Lord and the wonder of his grace. This book is a God centered book and in it the author encourages us to seek God so that we might be transformed into the image of Christ. We are challenged to be Christlike time and time again. We are shown how to graciously live in the battles of life in an offensive manner, so that we exhibit the character of Christ through our serving him and by this we can  also impart life and blessing to others.

His chapter on creative authority is full of insights that help us to see how we can use our gifts for the sake of the kingdom. The more we read of this book we will realize that the author wants us to receive from god so that we can give blessings away.

The book ends with a challenge to be totally surrendered to the purposes of God, a self -centered life style is rightly challenged and a total openness to the Lord commended. The book is full of helpful illustrations of the author’s teaching and many passages of scripture are used to show that this is what requires of us. The emphasis throughout is that the Life giver wants to give us abundant life so that we may share it with others. If you buy this book you will be challenged to live out of the resources of a gracious God, I commend this book to you not because I was asked to review it for Destiny Image but because this book will help you in your walk with the Lord.
