Moody Publishers Surrender: The Heart God Controls, with Small Group Study Guide

If you've been fighting a losing spiritual battle, it's time to give up and turn yourself over to the King of kings. The truth is, your salvation was just the starting point of your surrender. You will never know real joy, peace, and success until you learn what it means to live a fully surrendered life, continually saying "no" to self and "yes" to God. Choosing the pathway to full surrender will transform your perspective, set fire to your soul, revolutionize your life, and give the spiritual victory you have sought for so long. This paperback edition includes a foreword by Pastor Jim Cymbala and a discussion guide for each chapter.

This book is a must read for anyone, especially women, looking to open their hearts and minds to spiritual purity and revival. Your faith, your lifestyle, and your conception of living a Godly life will be challenged and you will seek the high, narrow road. We are using "Surrender" in a small group study for women, and I am praying that we will be lifted from spiritual doldrums to Christ inpired victory in this fallen world.

I love it when God sends the right book at the right time, and that is exactly what happened with "Surrender". I think there are times in my life that I understood what surrendering to Christ meant, and I think I have given Him all. While reading "Surrender", I realized that surrendering is a journey. There are always deeper levels of selfishness to overcome. Surrender doesn't necessarily mean giving something up outwardly first, but it it starts with the bowing of the knee so to speak in our heart to Christ. I also realized that the more I try to hold onto and control even the smallest of things, that I ultimately come under bondage to it, and it becomes one more burden to carry. Christ wants to carry our burdens, and live a life of peace. Surrender is the only answer. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends, and keep a copy for myself to look at in the future. It is truly a valuable book. I would also highly recommend "Surrender" for a small group, or a book club. DeMoss has a discussion guide at the back of the book for each chapter. It is a fairly easy read, that could be covered in eight weeks.
