Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time the Book Review: Lean On Me by Anne Marie Miller.
First of all, let me tell you what Lean On Me is meant to stand an an example of:
- a how-to book for Christian living
- a step by step guide to relationships or marriages
- Now is this work an example of Biblical prose directed towards God’s approach to community
Instead, the author Anne Marie Miller shares her story, a tale of darkness, with only God’s redemptive breath, seamlessly woven throughout each moment, each experience, each tear. What is outlined within the pages are the principles of “Intentional, Vulnerable, and Consistent Community.” Anne’s memories all but direct the reader to focus on the tension between belonging in true fellowship, and having to end fluffy, unnecessary friendships, in hopes of pursuing independence.
From a Biblical perspective, the author applies her unique insight towards the uncanny way Jesus calls us to “truth-speaking relationships.”
I highly recommend this read to anyone who wants to just have quality relationships in their life. Be prepared to question every relationship in your life, to treasure each friendship more, and to ask yourself how you can be a better person in the midst of the awakening.
