Look and Live: Behold the Soul-Thrilling, Sin-Destroying Glory of Christ by Matt Papa

Goodreads | Amazon
Only one addiction can set you free.

Matt Papa was a "professional Christian" in full-time ministry, ready and determined to change the world. All the while he was depressed, addicted to the approval of others, and enslaved to sin. But then everything changed. He encountered the glory of God.

All of us live in the tension between where we are and where we ought to be. We try our best to bully our desires into submission. And we all know, this is exhausting.

Are you tired? Stuck? Still fighting the same sin you've been fighting for years? The call in these pages is not to work or to strive, but to lift your eyes. You don't need more willpower. You need a vision of greatness that sweeps you off your feet. You need to see glory. 

Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Look & Live.

Look and Live by Matt Papa is a book I really enjoyed reading. From the start to the finish, Papa focuses his writing on the glory of God, with a perspective that challenged and provoked me to consider familiar ideas in fresh, different ways. Well-written and entirely accessible, Look and Live is a valuable read with an important, memorable message. I would highly recommend it to any Christian reader looking for an engaging, thought-provoking read.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of Look and Live and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
