I Am Second - A Book Review

I Am Second by Dave Sterrett and Doug Bender is an amazing collection of stories from individuals in and out of the public eye. I was remotely familiar with the concept of I Am Second as I had once stumbled across the website while looking for some background information on Josh Hamilton.

I decided to pick the book up as I love to read testimonies of the transforming power of Jesus Christ. I Am Second gathers together some of these stories into book format and the end result is just as impacting as any of their videos. Numerous times while reading this book, I had to stop and share with my wife one of the testimonies of how a life was transformed. I was touched by reading the stories of physical healing. I was encouraged that God could transform lives caught up in prostitution and drugs. From the wealthy racist, you will find a bit of everything here. Yet there is one underlying thread through each of these vastly different stories. Each person featured here has come to the end of themselves. They found out that Jesus Christ was first and that they were second!

Each story ends with a recommendation to see the I Am Second films available on their website and references similar stories there as well. You will also find QR codes for those with smart phones.

I would highly recommend this book to any believer struggling with life's cares or those burdened by sin's impact. It is also perfect for a non-believer seeking truth and a seasoned Christian in need of encouragement. Basically, if you can read, this is a book for you!
