Craig Groeschel gets it

"Confessions of a Pastor" is quite the read. It requires reflection and self-examination while providing loads of laughs. These are not things that are often brough together! Craig does a very good job in breaking down walls of the "holier-than-thou" typical preacher talk. Craig gives concrete examples of how he has failed in his walk with Christ and what he has done to mend his failures.

Craig proves that neither he nor anyone else is perfect. Once that is belief is established you realize that no one is so screwed up that they can not fix their life.

The world has quite the cast of religous leaders. However, there are few who seem as approachable and as "real" as Craig Groeschel. I know that sounds like an odd comment about a man who is the lead pastor of a mega-chruch. However to me Craig Groeshcel seems like a guy who could not only be my buddy, but a friend who would help make me a better person and Christ follower. Craig Groeschel simply gets it... and I am very happy that he does.

PS -
If you have never gone to Lifechurch.tv - please go - All of Craig's sermons are available to watch (for free of course). Go before and after you read this book since his sermons makes a great companion to what he has written.
