Review 1 for Thirsty: Meeting Jesus at Your Deepest Need
Date:July 4, 2009
From the Forward of Amy Nappas book Thirsty: Meeting Jesus at Your Deepest Need Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with life that you just didnt think you could even get out of bed? And the thought of work any kind of work just made you sick to your stomach?Written in a very personal, friend-to-friend, coffee shop manner, Amy Nappa discusses interesting and thought provoking aspects of The Woman at the Well.Immediately, she establishes that we are all thirsty, all wanting more, all in need. From there she brings the story (found in John 4:4-32) to life with great attention to what actually was happening in the discussion Jesus had with this woman.Amy Nappa writes with vivid imagination and almost artistic insight into biblical characters, carefully constructing an image of this story with all the shades of nuance and meaning that Max Lucado would offer.The chapters Teasing the Mystery, Speaking the Truth, and Removing Distractions were of particular interest to me as they present an up-close-and-personal God who makes no apology for the mysteries in life, and unapologetically discounts all objections clearing the way for us to see Gods great interest in meeting our every need.Throughout the book, you find the authors personal struggles and unique ideas such as the Surprise Me experiment (which I plan to use myself) and the idea that God does not have Attention Deficit Disorder He cannot be distracted from His pursuit of us, of fulfilling our greatest need.A truly remarkable book. With a Readers Guide at the end, very useful for Personal Reflection or Group Bible Study.If you have ever wanted to roll over in the bed and sleep away the world, read this book. After you discover how passionate God is about you, you may discover a passion, a thirst of your own.
