A Different Type of Zombie

Joanna Weaver's christian self help book, Lazarus Awakening, used the story of Lazarus' resurrection to show readers how to find their place in the heart of God. Sounds overwhelming, but really it's a little underwhelming. Honestly, the book sounds like a lot of other christian guide books (aka self help) books that I've read in the past. Reading about her struggles was empowering but it felt a little repetitive at times. One thing that I really did enjoy was some guidelines on how to live in the light of eternity and prepare for what God really has in store for you. Joanna lists the following principals for essentially "living your earthly life to its fullest potential":

1. live fully
2. hold things loosely
3. value people highly
4. travel lightly
5. love completely
6. give freely
7. look expectantly

Overall, this book was alright, it wasn't mind blowing but it still charges the reader to ask some good soul searching questions.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
