Labeled by Idleman himself as a “God-help” book rather than a “self- help” book, AHA unveils how three key elements can deepen our faith and change our lives forever. I was excited to get this book because honestly, I think I need more AHA moments in my own spiritual life. But, according to Idelman, many of these moments come out of difficult times in our life. Man, oh man, I don’t like difficult times. Yet, it is true, the times when I drew closest to the Lord were the hard times in my life.
From Idelman’s Facebook page: When life is hard we either draw closer to God or push him away. How have difficult circumstances helped you grow spiritually?
Author of the breakout bestseller Not a Fan, pastor and author Kyle Idleman reveals three vital ingredients—Awakening, Honesty, Action—that combine for lasting change. We’ve all had “aha!” moments in our lives, a sudden revelation surprising us with insight. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on the parables of Jesus to reveal how three key elements can produce the same kind of “aha!” in our spiritual lives:
- Awakening to the reality of who we are in Jesus Christ
- Renewed Honesty to see our need for a Savior
- Inspired to Action, we obey God and follow Christ’s example
As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father.
“It may sound harsh to say, but the number one contributor to spiritual growth is not sermons, books or small groups; the number one contributor to spiritual growth is difficult circumstances” admits Idleman. “AHA comes out of the suffering, setbacks, and challenges of life. Many People could point to those moments as their greatest moments of spiritual awakening.”
