"Primal" by Mark Batterson

"Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity" by Mark Batterson wraps readers into a pensive gyre of contemplation. This book aims at redefining Christianity at its core. The main precepts of loving God and living life to its fullest for the glory of the Lord are set forth. Through personal anecdotes and miscellaneous stories, Batterson explains how God is just as present today as he was in thousands of years ago. Tithing and helping others is also suggested. Batterson also inserts tales of his personal success with business and one account of healing a man with a stress-induced ailment. This book could have done with more Bible quotations and focus on Scripture, but, as it stands, it will attract a modern and young audience to remember to seek after God forevermore.

This was book was provided for review by WaterBrook Multnomah.
