Kerry and Chris Shook have a television ministry I watch on TBN. It is called Kerry Shook Ministries. His style of preaching reaches from the youngest to the old. He explains concepts of the Bible which you can relate to and understand.
The first sentence in the introduction gives the reader what the book is about. “If you only had one month to live, what would you do“? We really do not think about what we would do if we only had one month to live. We go along living day-to-day in a “rush and hurried” society. We take the “I’ll get around to it”, “when the kids are grown”, or “maybe someday” attitude in life. We take for granted that each day is given to us, when in truth it is not.
One Month To Live makes you take an evaluation of your life. Are you putting things before you family? Are you putting things before yourself? Are you truly living your life as if you have “one month to live”? Are you living your dreams that you have put on hold? Are you going to your children’s “one in a lifetime” events or is someone else taking your place because you have to work or you have “other things to do”. The biggest of all, are you living the life God created you to live? Are you doing the things God has created you to do? You do not want to regret not doing something later down the road.
Kerry and Chris Shook stated, “the pages of the book carry the vital message to which we’re devoted-how to experience life to the fullest by living passionately and purposefully, the way we were created to live. By embracing the fact that our time on earth is limited, we can live deliberately, no longer postponing the joy and peace that comes from fulfilling our God-given destiny”.
The book is written in “first person” not like other co-authored books. The book is designed to be read daily. The book has “Principles” not chapters.
- Live Passionately
- Love Completely
- Learn Humbly
- Leave Boldly
In the “days” reading are “Make It Count Moments” with questions the reader is to answer and think about. The end of the “daily” reading is “Make It Last for Life” which allows the reader to react on what they just read. As you can see, the book is not to be rushed through.
I enjoyed reading this book. I am going to read it again. It made me sit back and take an evaluation of my life. I highly recommend this book for personal or group study. You will sit back and reflect on your life and start living each day as if it were your last. What are you waiting for! Take the 30-Day Challenge!
