Book Review: "#Struggles"

If you spend much time on social media, Craig Groeschel's new book, #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World, is a must-read. Groeschel writes with wisdom and humor making this book a simple and fun but often profound read. Some of his insights are the common sense we're tempted to ignore. Others create huge aha moments: "Oh! I never thought of it that way." Throughout the book, Groeschel gives sound advice on navigating social media in a Christ-centered way.

I especially appreciated the way he organized the book. He explains in the introduction, "We will look at eight biblical values and how they can help us restore balance in our lives and end our unhealthy over-reliance on technology." Each of these values then gets a chapter in the book, and, though each chapter is about 20-25 pages long, he has them broken down into little bits, solidly clarifying each point within. Following the conclusion are two useful appendices: The Ten Commandments of Using Social Media to Grow Your Faith and Share God's Love and Safeguards.

Zondervan sent me a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I'll be referring to it often as a reference and reminder. I recommend it to you!
