REVIEW: "Clutter-Free Christianity" by Robert Jeffress

Clutter-Free Christianity is a book that seeks to get the reader to examine his heart and renew his faith.  Jeffress talks about the differences in a heart positioned toward God and the one away from God.  The 'clutter-free' heart is transformed by faith that is changed by knowing God and spiritual disciplines.  Addressed in this compelling book are issues of forgiveness, contentment and servanthood among others.  The refreshing tone of this book encouraged me to connect even more in quiet moments with my God.  I encourage you to spend some time with this book.

Publishers Summary
When did the Christian life become so complicated?
Your greatest desire is to please God, but with each passing week, your spiritual to-do list grows longer. As you strive to fulfill a never-ending inventory of requirements for being a godly parent, spouse, voter, employee, and more, you feel increasingly disconnected from the God you're trying to serve.
It's time to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of what it means to please God. In this liberating look at the core principles of faith, Dr. Robert Jeffress reveals the truth about what God really wants from you–and what He wants to do for you.
Through solid biblical teaching and practical insights, Dr. Jeffress points you toward a revitalized faith centered on becoming more like Jesus in action, attitude, and affection. You'll learn how to partner with God in the process of spiritual transformation as you choose to follow Christ in forgiveness, obedience, trust, contentment, service, and prayer.
Through a renewed focus on experiencing the kingdom of God right now, you'll find your to-do list shrinking and your spiritual life deepening. It all comes with embracing Clutter-Free Christianity.
Includes a Bible study guide for personal growth and group discussion.
