This review is for the book "Synced" by Jennifer Kennedy Dean. This book is all about living in sync with Jesus. She shows how when Jesus was here on earth in his physical body he was constantly living connected to his Father in heaven. We can learn from that and try to live synced to Jesus while we are here on this earth as well. One thing I loved is that she showed from the very beginning of the book some scripture that correlates how Jesus lived to how we can live. For example, in John 5:19 Jesus says that he can do nothing by himself (without the Father) and in John 15:5 Jesus says that apart from him we can do nothing. It makes so much sense. Most of the life of Jesus has prayer sprinkled throughout, since we are commanded to pray without ceasing. He would pray before eating, when he needed power, when he was feeling tempted. He also gave us the Lord's Prayer which is a great model for us as Christians. The author goes through that prayer step by step and really goes in depth in talking about it. I loved this book. I was taking notes like crazy. I love Dean's writing style. It is very easy to read and learn from, so I definitely recommend this book.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
