Review of Starting Over by Dave and Jon Ferguson

This book is all about examining our regrets and starting over again to have a moreeBook Review Gal book review of Starting Over by Dave and Jon Ferguson fulfilling and spiritual life. The authors outline what they call the “three R’s” for breaking out of the Sorry Cycle – Recognize, Release and Redeem. This book is for anyone who has regrets – and isn’t that just about everyone?

Starting Over is only 182 pages, yet it took me almost a week to finish. Not because it was difficult, awful or tedious. That was far from the case. This book is so filled with thought-provoking and valuable information that I found myself slowing down, taking notes and contemplating everything that was said. It’s that good! It gave me so many insightful points to think about. Starting Over had me thinking about my own regrets and how my life could be improved by letting go of them.

The writing style is conversational and friendly. There are plenty of real life examples used to show readers how the Starting Over Loop can be achieved successfully. The authors are pastors and God’s message to us is clear and front and center. Yet, I never found the writing to be overly preachy. It’s a perfect mixture of practical advice and Biblical teachings.

I enjoyed this book immensely and am now planning to pick up the authors’ previous book, “Finding Your Way Back to God”. I highly recommend Starting Over. Thank you to Blogging for Books for providing a free copy!
