I received this book from http://booklookbloggers.com
With receiving this book for free I agreed to read it and put up a review. I am still new to reviewing books, but am enjoying it. So in this review I think I will go by cheaper give small review and then how I feel about it.
In No More Dragons, Jim shows how he battled threw his dragons. Dragons being the many life challenges each of go through in life.
He takes us through 10 chapters: 1) You, me and Dragons 2) Monkeys, Naked people and traitors, 3) Your past, Your present and Your train tracks 4)Elephants, Lions and depression, 5) Shark week, allergies and faith 6)Prayer, people and pills 7) missing limbs, burned pizza and cheater services 8) Gay guys, gangster and everyone else 9) Scarred guys, sick guys and small steps, 10)Truth, grace and spiritual’ poverty.
Chapter 1) You, Me and Dragons
Jim talks about his first memories. How he was living in Africa and they left for the states over a conflict of baptism. He was a PK (preachers kid). He shares about how he turns from GOD and gets into drugs. In college he meets Robin. (who was a Christian). It was in college he heard Jesus tell him he was going to be a preacher, and there he started to let go of the Dragons.
I am 46 and over the last few years have stomped some of my dragons. I hope to some day stomp more.. I am not sure I will all in my mind but I know through God’s yes and heart I have.
Chapter 2) Monkeys, Naked People and Traitors
Growing up in church he learned about truths of God’s ways. He talks about when he learned you could call and buy a monkey and when no longer wanted made another call to get rid of. He visited a primate rescue center, he became interested in their stories and read them. He thinks about how they would love to be free if they had the chance. How they to can have bad days. He was not talking about monkeys here, but us and Jesus.
I have felt trapped in my 2nd marriage.. looking back now I had my bad days and could have made better choices. Nosing that now I use that lesson to make better choices.
Jim refers to times when Jesus looked for people not living the lives they were meant to live. He shares ( john 8: 1-11)
I guess Jesus found me.
He shares the stories of Zacchaeus, The naked man on the beach, and the naked girl thrown at his feet.
In a few ways I can identify will all three, reading the virus opens my eyes to forgiveness
Look at pat present and train tracks shows how we have all of these. There are always tracks, or obstacles. How we deal with is a choice, to look and ask god for guidance.
What if dragons hurt us? He Jim talks to us and shares more virus on how god and the bible show us to overcome the hurt and pain.
I deal with depression, some days are bad, but I am starting to have more good, with help of Medici e but more help with God showing me.
In this are of the book Robin, shares her story, remember Robin the girl from college, well he married her.
Jim shares how pestering was not on his ‘to do list’ he wanted to run to the woods and live of the land.
Wouldn’t it be nice to do that sometimes? I still say that.
Jim shares about faith not being a perfect formula, we each have our own.
Wow’ this hot home! (Hebrew 4:16)
Well as I said earlier..i am new to reviewing.. I struggled with the last part of the book, so am not sure how to review. I can say that this is a book that will remain on myself and be read over again and again over the years. My self like that is becoming bigger.
