Unstuck: Your Life - God's Design - Real Change by Arnie Cole and Michael Ross speaks to those who feel they are in a broken relationship with God. Filled with a mixture of real stories, a Biblical guideline to follow for 45 days, research data, and advice, the book is divided into 3 sections.

Part One: Why We Stall Out focused on the reasons for the emptiness and doubts a believer may be going through.
Part Two: The Powered By Four Solution has a focus on not just a knowledge of God, but of building a relationship with Him through regular Bible reading.
Part Three: Engage, Untangle...Grow! is personal application of the process.

For some reason, I just kept finding myself bogged down by the detailed research into statistics and my mind would wander as I read. I did enjoy the personal stories and could connect with some of those who find them themselves getting out of the habit of spending more than a cursory time with God. However, much of it does seem to be things a believer knows...or should know. But, that is just my opinion. What will reach one person, does not have the same effect on another. On the plus side, and I confess that I did not take the time to go through this program, there is a website to help in a personal way that may be exactly what an individual is looking for to get "unstuck". With a subscription to go Tandem you'll receive scripture sent through your preferred media that is personalized to meet your individual needs. You can also ask for a weekly phone call from a Spiritual Growth Encourager who is equipped to discuss the Scripture you have been reading and pray with you. Accountability is always good, and this may be perfect for you.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for review purposes. My opinions are my own and it was not required that I give a good review.
