 Ken Davis’s grand-daughter, his little princess, Jadyn has become lost in theColoradoMountains as this book opens.Davisis panic-stricken and frantic during the search, praying fervently, even when he falls totally exhausted onto his hands and knees into a foot and a half of cold swamp water. He is willing to give up everything if God will only rescue his Jadyn.

 When the four-year old is found, hours later, instead of scolding as he might have done, the author can only repeat over and over, “I love you. I love you, I love you.” Suddenly, in a life-changing instant, he realizes that’s how God feels about him! And how God wants every single child of God to leave a path of mediocrity for one of living fully alive.

 This book continues similarly withDavis’s honest, challenging, often witty insights about how to fully live as God has planned, about how to experience in real life an exuberant, overwhelming joy with enduring vitality.

 The author says rightly, the glory of God is man fully alive, living a life that’s not safe, comfortable, passive or predictable, but overflowing with risk, emotion and an anticipation of adventure that makes us leap out of bed each morning. Anyone who longs for this better way to live will treasureDavis’s book, Fully Alive, for directions to the path God designed for us. 

 Are you one who wants to be re-ignited with God’s amazing love, who may have lost your song, who is drearily existing instead of fully living, who no longer feels creative and interested in new things? You’ll treasure this book.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.

  1. Its very apparent to me you are a devoted writer, passionate about your subject matter. You write to your readers and not at them. Thank you for making me think.

    The commandment to love other people is given in the Torah , which states, “Love your neighbor like yourself” ( Leviticus 19:18). The Torah’s commandment to love God “with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might” ( Deuteronomy 6:5) is taken by the Mishnah (a central text of the Jewish oral law ) to refer to good deeds, willingness to sacrifice one’s life rather than commit certain serious transgressions, willingness to sacrifice all of one’s possessions, and being grateful to the Lord despite adversity (tractate Berachoth 9:5). Rabbinic literature differs as to how this love can be developed, e.g., by contemplating divine deeds or witnessing the marvels of nature. As for love between marital partners, this is deemed an essential ingredient to life: “See life with the wife you love” ( Ecclesiastes 9:9). The biblical book Song of Solomon is considered a romantically phrased metaphor of love between God and his people, but in its plain reading, reads like a love song. The 20th-century Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler is frequently quoted as defining love from the Jewish point of view as “giving without expecting to take” (from his Michtav me-Eliyahu, Vol. 1).
