#struggles | Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World | Graig Groeschel | BookLook Review

#struggles-Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World is one of the best books I’ve read in a while; personally I wish more people would read it. In today’s society we are consumed by social media, its everywhere down to the toddler with the cell phone and it contains the nasty bulk of comparisons within it. Within this book the author divides the chapters to give each subject its own little spot of glory for the reader.
  • Introduction | Devices and Desires
  • #1 Recovering Contentment | The Struggle with Comparisons
  • #2 Restoring Intimacy | The Struggle with “Likes”
  • #3 Revealing Authenticity | The Struggle with Control
  • #4 Resurrecting Compassion | The Struggle with Desensitization
  • #5 Reviving Integrity | The Struggle with Secret Impurity
  • #6 Remembering Encouragement | The Struggle with Constant Criticism
  • #7 Reclaiming Worship | The Struggle with Idolatry
  • #8 Replenishing Rest | The Struggle with Constant Distraction
  • Conclusion | Keeping Technology in Its Place
  • Appendix 1: The Ten Commandments of Using Social Media to Grow Your Faith and Share God’s Love
  • Appendix 2: Safeguards

Not long ago I watched a show about a young girl who was addicted to social media, she would go into some type of withdraw without her phone where she could get to it and check all the things happening on the internet; which then made me look at my own relationship with social media and how much I use it from day to day. It made my heart hurt to see how much the world relies on such a simple thing that you can access from pretty much anywhere as long as you have internet. Overall, this book is a fantastic book to help you put Technology and Social Media in perspective and figure out a game plan for yourself as to when and how to use it. I love that the author included the two appendix sections to help you along once you finished the book as well. Highly recommend this book!
