Review – Live Love Lead by Brian Houston
Whether a person is searching for their calling or wholeheartedly pursuing their life’s purpose, LIVE LOVE LEAD will help them navigate a faith path that is all their own and discover unique gifts tailored perfectly for their journey.
How do people experience the best life that God intends for them? The answer lies in understanding that the Christian life is an adventure, and that they only have to follow the greatest Guide who ever walked the path of life–Jesus. In this straightforward book, Brian Houston shows readers the way to live fully, love completely, and lead boldly–the hallmarks of Jesus’ time on earth.
I’ve never read a book by Brian Houston, but that doesn’t make him a stranger to me. If you have heard the name of Hillsong, then you have probably heard about Brian Houston, if not, well… where have you been all this time? The cover was also something I noticed when choosing this book, it’s simple, elegant and effective.
When I started to read Live Love Lead, I didn’t know exactly what kind of book I had in my hands. First, it seemed a simple theology/leadership book. The language used by Houston is straight and easy to understand, sometimes way too simple. I started to question myself about choosing this book, since it sounded as many other motivational christian books out there.
After reading a couple of chapters everything changed and there were many deep thoughts and truths explained in a really easy way. That’s when I understood this was Houston’s goal all the time, making a christian book accessible to everyone, not only to church leaders or leadership gurus. Houston uses different Hillsong songs as introductions to each chapter and most of the content of this book comes from his experiences not only from present but also from his past, his beginnings as a pastor and everything else in between.
Live Love Lead is a book about living the way Jesus did. Living, loving and leading no matter the circumstances, no matter the situation. I really liked the way Brian Houston offers solutions, not only based on his experience, but based on God’s Word.
Even if you don’t know who Brian Houston is, I recommend this book to you. It’ll change your perspective on life. It also serves as a great gift (Christmas anyone?) Live Love Lead is a book worth a reading and worth to become a classic. Go to LiveLoveLeadBook.com for more information.
