{book review: untamed}

Lisa Harper is truly a woman gifted by God.

A few weeks ago I began reading her book titled Untamed.

Her writing style is witty and blunt, yet incredibly refreshing.

Many Christian authors tend to write books telling Christians how to better themselves, how to become right with God again...and because of that, I always felt that I had something to prove, I had to be "just a little more" for God to accept me.

Untamed looks deep into the character of Christ and presents Him as someone real, something tangible. He is a Savior that had bruised knees when He fell while running with friends. He felt rejection and the sting of betrayal. His desires were for the approval of His Father and he loved every man and woman that He encountered.

I have never been able to connect with Christ in a way that changed my heart, and after reading Untamed, I can. I feel closer to Christ than I ever have been as I begin to understand that He truly knows and empathizes with my heart. Every broken experience, every triumphant victory.

I highly recommend this book. If you are looking for a connection with our Savior, pick it up. If you feel lost and don't understand how Christ could love someone like you, find a copy. This book will get at your heart and spark a fire that lasts forever.

It is one of the best books I have ever read.

Hands down.
