Book Description, Modified from Back Cover:
What is the greatest challenge that the Church is facing today? In one word, author Zeke Lam suggests that the following is the greatest challenge: submission, or the lack thereof. It is not the external forces that nullify the testimony of a believer but rather the failure to humbly submit to the voice of the Lord. Learn how to submit your life wholeheartedly to the Lord so that you can dwell continually in the secret place--a place of intimacy, surrender, and joy.

My Review:
SubMISSION is a Christian Living book. The book made some good points about listening to (and obeying) only God's voice and keeping our focus on Him. I liked the preface ("Start Here") the most, but all of the chapters made good points. Overall, I'd recommend this book to those who feel they've lost their intimacy with Christ (or never had it).

Preface - Obeying God, not following our additions that we think He'll like better.

Introduction - Christians often still live like they're bound to sin, but they don't have to.

Chapter 1 - Living for God's glory (in hard times).

Chapter 2 - Not compromising, and speaking out against what is wrong.

Chapter 3 - Changing our perspective to a heavenly one.

Chapter 4 - Look to God at all times, not just in troubled times.

Chapter 5 - Showing our love for God by spending intimate time with Him (instead of only "doing things for Him," like Martha). Submitting to His plans instead of only asking Him to bless our plans.

Chapter 6 - Finding peace in the presence of God and being revived.

Chapter 7 - Don't believe Satan's lies. Speak out God's truth.

Chapter 8 - Obey God's voice and His alone. Don't allow security or insecurity to hinder your obedience.

Chapter 9 - Obedience to God, not just saying all the right words or carefully following man's traditions.

Chapter 10 - Your life proclaiming the gospel message. Walk in the presence of the Lord.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
