Our Last Great Hope by Ronnie Floyd [Review]

         Our Last Great Hope centers around revitalizing Christians' call to the Great Commission. I found this book to thought provoking once I got into it....which unfortunately, was rather late in the book. I didn't feel pulled into it or hooked into it to the point I couldn't put it down or anything great like that. Then again, with a subject like the Great Commission, perhaps most people wouldn't feel super excited to read the whole thing in one day? We don't get excited over being reprimanded by a parent or employer....

         Despite my above statement, it is a topic that still needs to be discussed. Still, I wasn't super thrilled over the writing style. As a writer myself, I could tell Floyd was extremely excited when he wrote this book, but I failed to feel the excitement carry over to the reader. The writing itself felt a little bit repetitive at times. Then again, maybe that's not such a bad thing: "Repetition is a powerful teaching tool." (p. 81)

         When I finally got myself plugging along at a decent pace, I began feeling more interest, and better yet (at least in some peoples eyes), convicted. I was just disappointed it didn't kick in till the last few chapters. Despite that, there were solid, thought provoking quotes and points throughout the book.

         I received this book for free from Booksneeze for this review.
