The End of Me Review
In this 216 page book, Kyle Idleman takes us on a journey into a deeper understanding of Jesus’ sermon on the mount. Kyle explains how Jesus’ teachings really flipped the world on its head. His truths were counterculture and seem to go against the grain of everything we have been taught by society throughout history.
In classic Kyle Idleman fashion, he delivers the content of this book in a humorous manner. I really enjoyed how he takes a lighthearted approach in delivering his stories and the message that he is trying to convey to the reader. If you have ever read Kyle’s most popular book “Not a Fan”, it reads much in the same way. This book is conversational and easy to read. It is also very thought provoking.
The End of Me, stresses the same point that the Apostle Paul stressed. When we are weak, then we are strong. It is in our weaknesses that Christ’s strength is made whole in us. When we hit rock bottom, we find that Christ is the rock at rock bottom. Kyle uses the beatitudes to plead this case. There were certain parts of this book that really assisted me with my everyday walk with Christ, such as humbled and honest prayers, having a servants attitude, and dying to the world daily. Kyle uses many scripture references and stories to back all his teachings which I really like.
Kyle’s simplistic approach to the the beatitudes will make you re-evaluate your daily Christian walk. I recommend this book for both the new and the seasoned Christian alike.
Thought provoking and detailed application of the beatitudes in our everyday lives.
