I honestly don’t know where to start with this review because I wasn’t a huge fan of this book. In fact, I found it somewhat generic and even shallow at times. Maybe it’s because the deck was already stacked against this book because of books I had recently read that deal with a similar subject matter. That’s not to say that searching fr Seven might not be beneficial for those who are new believers, or even teenagers, I think it can be. But as someone who has been a believer for well over a decade and churched her whole life, it just didn’t do much for me. And that might be because I have read quite a few books on the idea of living for Christ every day of the week, and was taught this most of my life.
Even though found Searching for Seven just okay, there were a couple of quotes that did stick out to me near the start of the book:
“Following Jesus isn’t about one big event in our lives…It’s about leaning into what He’s teaching you along the way, even if you don’t realize what He was doing until years later” (4).
“We aren’t promised a happy life on earth. We aren’t even promised tomorrow. But we are promised that Go will be with us in the midst of our pain. And we’re promised an eternal joy for all who believe” (14).
Overall, Searching for Seven was just okay. The author has good intentions, and I’m sure that to the right reader this would be a great tool! 3/5 Stars.
