I’m not going to give you the whole low-down of what it felt like to read Get Lost, because I’m not going to be that open. It’s convicting, yes. Easy to read, yes—except for when it’s convicting (as always, right?). And it’s about getting totally lost in God.

So that a man has to seek Him first in order to find you.

But it’s not focused on getting lost in God simply because doing so will send your super hero careening down the nearest interstate toward you. It’s focused on getting lost in God because that is what we are called to do.

Dannah Gresh did this book extremely well. True stories (we all love those, right?)—even a partial back-story for the beauty of the cover (which a couple of you really liked . . . and yeah, I know it's June). Clear definitions from the original Hebrew and Greek words (agape, ahabah, phileo, etc.) to tell you what the referenced Scriptures really mean, as we can find them vague and confusing in English. Explanations of Solomon’s Song of Songs and the story behind it. And perhaps the best part of all of it: the ability to journal. After each chapter, Dannah puts note-pages for you to talk about what you’re reading. It’s one way to get some of those emotions out in the open, anyway.

Whoops, practically forgot to say this . . . the focal point of Get Lost is the 10-Day “Love Feast” . . . the time for getting lost in God and getting out of the Violent Craving for a guy and over yourself. But all of the book seems to be equally useful to me. Sincerely recommended.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
