What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

Primal by Mark Batterson

I just finished reading Mark Batterson‘s new book, Primal.

Wow!

This was the best book I have read in a long, long time.  Mark Batterson provides a refreshing look at a basic, foundational commandment – The Great Commandment – to love the love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Mark is obviously a well-read, intelligent author.  I love the detail and thought he pours into each word of Primal.  It seemed like every page and every paragraph packed a punch that left me wanting to read on.  More than that, Mark is passionate about loving God with everything he’s got.  I finished Primal challenged – challenged to love the Lord with a renewed compassion, a renewed wonder, a renewed curiosity, and a renewed energy.

Primal should be the first book you read in 2010!

Thank you Mark Batterson for spurring us on.

  1. Might be an interesting compare and contrast with Scot McKnight’s “The Jesus Creed.”
