#Book Review "Divided" By Bill Delvaux

I really expected more from this book, maybe more help in bridging the gap between heart matters and head matters, but this book came up a little short. While it is indeed a good read I found I had to fight with myself to push through reading it to the end. I would find my mind wandering off without meaning to, and that doesn't happen very often for me. I would recommend reading this book for yourself it could of just been my reading preference didn't mix well with this particular author's writing style, who knows but read it for yourself and let me know in a comment what you think.

The Amazon site lists the following as the description of the book:

"The longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart. For Christ-followers, it is the chasm between what we say we believe in our minds and what we truly believe in our hearts: a split between our statements about God and our experience of Him. This divide is everywhere around us, causing untold devastation. It is found in the double lives of believers and in the hypocrisy of church leaders, but mainly we see it in ourselves. It is the default position of every human heart.

In Divided: When the Head and Heart Don’t Agree, Bill Delvaux exposes this divide and offers strategies to tackle it. The actual journey to cross the divide is sketched out, an epic journey that will take us into our deepest fear and shame and on into the wonder of God’s presence. For becoming undivided is not just another task. It’s the pathway into the very heart of the Father.
Features include:

  • Strategies for closing the divide between head and heart
  • Specific prayers for each stage of the spiritual journey
  • Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection"

You can pick up a copy on Amazon today and judge it for yourself.
