CWA Review: Come Back To Jesus-And Don't Bring Your Blackberry

 
About the Book:
Have you drifted away from the Faith? Or has life gotten in the way? If any of these:
• Busy-ness
• Relationships
• Hurts
• Addictions
have held you up, you need Come Back to Jesus.
Renew your love of Christ and your joy in building on the gifts God gave you. STOP just going through the motions. Find the time-stealers and replace them by starting afresh with prayer; center yourself in The Word.
Explore the things that could lead you off the "narrow path." Practice opening up to God, being
in His presence....
Experience the love of the Lord like you may never have before. Read the book as a personal growth guide, or use it as a 6-week Bible study and share insights and encouragement with your small group.

About the Author:
Tanya Logan found herself drawn to Christ while on a cloud-gazing walk at the age of 9. Since then, she has seen His hand in nature from her native East Tennessee to Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA and now Southwest Florida. A writer all of her life, Come Back to Jesus—and Don’t Bring your Blackberry is her 4th book. She has also freelanced extensively and is the ghost author of 11 books, 2 of which are required reading for college courses.
“If I never have another word from God, this one is enough: Go tell the people to get the “stuff” out of the way so they can worship Me better,” Logan says. Thus the 6-week study Come Back to Jesus was born.
Tanya is married to Mickey Logan and together they share an office as well as a love of the ocean, boating, reading, and much silliness.

My Review:
 Often times we find ourselves far away from the One who gets us, the One who loves us more than we love ourselves...God. When we finally realize it, we are completely stunned and somewhat confused as to how we got to that point in the first place. Many times the things around us that start taking up our time and energies become our idols. More often than not it was something that we didn't intend on making into idols, it just ends up that way. We eventually stop going to church and stop spending time with the Lord. And the more we do it and the more we let it invade our lives the further we get away from Him and the worse our lives get.

  Come Back To Jesus-- And Don't Bring Your Blackberry, is a way to get your heart and mind focused back on the Lord. Upon starting the book the author has a reading section similar to a daily devotional and then she leads you into points to ponder and really think about your particular situation. I used the book on my own but you can easily use it in a group setting, it is divided into a six week time frame and there is a leaders guide included.
