Accomplished recording producer Brian Hardin experienced a mediocre Christian faith until one day, he purposed to read the Bible daily. His resolve led to the start of the Daily Audio Bible, which after eight years has had more than 55 million downloads and feeds hundreds of thousands of listeners each day.
In the process of reading the Bible to his growing audience every day without fail, he has made a true, real friend in Jesus. Not a “Hey God, I know You’re up there somewhere” type of relationship, but one that contains the emotions, dialogue, and intimate moments that we long for from our closest of comrades. Brian found it necessary to entirely reframe his perception of God into a relationship as real as any experienced here on earth.
Reframe challenges you to change your paradigm about your relationship and connection with God, because in truth, you are engineered so that life will not work without Him. Reframe invites you to reconsider life and what it might look like if you were ruined for anything else but a life-giving connection to the almighty God.
Reframe by Brian Hardin came at just the right time. My friends and I have been discussing more and more lately what is means to have a relationship with God and not just know about him.
Hardin takes a hard subject and simplifies it. I likes how Hardin compared our relationship with God to that of a marriage. He also mentioned that some of us can treat God like “a drunk rich uncle.”
Reframe got my brain thinking and contemplating all sorts of things. I was grateful for Hardin’s transparency when it can to his own personal walk and struggles in his walk with God. Especially about the part about what happened after his wife gave birth. There was just something so very familiar about Reframe.
But most of all the best part of this book was the encouragement to get back to scripture. Basically if you want a relationship with God you need to be in His word and with Him in prayer. There is no close second. If you want a relationship with someone, be with that person. Such simple and straightforward advice. So much truth there.
I think, overall, this is a good book. Reframe could be used everywhere from young adults to older generations. Its a good and simple read. There is no reason why it couldn’t be used even in a small group setting as well.
