{w}hole – Book Review

I recently read the book {w}hole by Lisa Whittle — a book about all the holes we have in our lives and what we use to fill them.  I was very interested in reading this book as I know that I have tons of holes and have spent the majority of my life filling them up with lots of things other than God.  {w}hole is a fairly quick and easy read, made up of eight chapters touching on religion, roles and experiences.  Whittle writes her own experiences with transparency, which I fully appreciate in an author and any Christian.

Though I did feel a bit disconnected to the first portion of the book, which seemed to talk mostly to those who have grown up going to church and faking Christianity, I did appreciate when the book seemed to turn a corner and discuss our holes in a broader sense — in a way that I think more Christians than just those who grew up in church could relate to.

Whittle encourages us to take a honest look at our holes and wants to help us discover how to fill them with God’s presence — how our holes can be the very things that make us whole. If you’ve been feeling empty, and you’re looking for a different way to fill the holes in your life, you may find some encouragement in the right direction from this book.

Here is the trailer for the book:

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
