Reviews - What do our customers think?
Encouraging  Sep 20, 2009
Gary Thomas has written another book that will encourage you to continue to persevere and grow. Not a check list of dos and donts, but a life changing perspective on how we walk day to day.
Life-changing, my own personal top read (and I read a lot).  Aug 13, 2009
Gary Thomas' Holy Available, previously titled The Beautiful Fight will both challenge and encourage you in your own personal life of faith. It challenged me to love as Jesus loved, to see others with His eyes, and to be His hands and feet to those He places around me. His principles often caused me to think and re-think my own perspective of the Christian life and more than once I found things that needed to be changed. I neither found it boring or the same old same old but rather packed with fresh insights and principles that could be applied to my life right now. I have given this book to several friends and recommended it to countless others. I'm certain you will want to read it through and then read it again slowly and then once again to grasp the fullness of the truth that Gary Thomas presents in this book. For me it has been life-changing.
rock your world  Jul 26, 2009
Once again, Gary Thomas has written a book that has rocked my world. It is a challenge to devote yourself to holiness - not only part of you, but every part of you. I appreciate how transparent Gary is. He often writes about how he has sinned and I can always relate to what he's writing about. If you think you have arrived, Gary's books are not for you. If you want to keep challenging yourself to a deeper relationship with Christ, Gary's books are a never-ending fountain of wisdom.
Like A Lead Balloon  Jul 25, 2009
I tried. I really did. I tried to enjoy this book.

The subtitle was enough to get my attention: "What if holiness is about more than what we don't do?"

I thought this might be a decent read from Gary Thomas. However, Holy Available is quite honestly a boring lead balloon.

Maybe it was the ongoing rambling that seemed to be taking place or just the number of words Thomas uses to get to his point. Whatever the cause, I read through this like trying to gag down oysters.

I liked the idea of teaching what it means to be followers of Christ instead of teaching the things we don't do. For example, Thomas remarks the church's obsession with swear words. "Here's a list of words we don't say - now memorize them"

And that Jesus continues to work today. Christians love Christmas and Easter but we tend to forget that Jesus ascended and is at the right hand of the Father.

Interesting ideas that could have been captivating but, alas, were dead weight in this book.

Maybe his other book, Sacred Marriage is a success but Holy Available needs some pep.
Want everyone I know to read this  Jul 19, 2009
This book gives a compelling and beautiful vision of what growth in holiness can look like in a person's life. If you are looking for a book which will call you out of a complacent or apathetic spiritual state and re-ignite your desire toward a more and more God-centered, sanctified and transformed life, this is the book for that. Read it slowly--I often just read 2-3 pages at a time and journalled my responses because I found it so challenging and full of wisdom and insight that was worth meditating over. The book is excellent. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there were a handful of things I disagreed with (minor things), but that is no big deal. It is a book I would wholeheartedly recommend to any friend struggling with motivation to keep running the race toward knowing God more and living more and more in line with His will.
