Book Review: Nudge, by Leonard Sweet

Nudge: Awakening Each Other to the God Who's Already There

Nudge, by Leonard Sweet:  Awakening each other to the God who's already there.

Nudge is a book that reminds you to pay attention.  Sometimes we get so busy in our life that we forget that God is ALWAYS there, sometimes we look for him, or wonder why he's not with us, but he IS.  He is always there, we just need to embrace him.

Leonard Sweet teaches us to use all of our 5 senses and one sentence that stuck out to me was "He is not obvious and appears where you don't expect him to appear" how true this is, and it's something we need to remember.  God isn't going to jump out at us, but he might Nudge us from time to time!

The main part of this book takes you through each of your senses and how you can find God through your 5 senses which tends to really make you think as well as realize that there's more to God than just sitting around and waiting for him to appear.

I am leaning towards feeling mediocre about this book, it has some interesting theories, but it did not keep my interest, maybe because I like to learn more in a story format, where this book tends to be more in a teaching format.  Beyond my feelings, I can say that there were parts of this book that did stand out to me and make me think and I think that this would be a great book for church study groups.
