How’s Your Soul, Book Review

How’s Your Soul, By Judah Smith

It may seem like an odd question, but it’s what pastor and bestselling author Judah Smith chooses to ask his friends, rather than “How are you?” It’s a way to look past the externals and consider what’s going on inside, in that essential part of us that is often overlooked in the struggle to make our way through everyday life.

In the rush of living moment to moment, many of us find ourselves simply surviving, struggling daily with frustration, restlessness, boredom, and ever-fleeting joy. But if we would pause, we’d find that the things that matter most in life, what we are searching for in our busyness—stability, peace,hope, love—are rooted in the health of what Judah calls the “inside you.”

In How’s Your Soul?, Judah explores that “inside you.” Sharing his own, often humorous, mistakes and foibles, he helps us find our way through the emotional roller coasters of life to discover the soul-healing essentials of restresponsibilityrestraint, and relationships, all rooted in what he calls the soul’s only true home—God himself.

How’s Your Soul? is an invitation to find lasting emotional satisfaction and stability by bringing our feelings into alignment with God’s truth, moving beyond simply surviving, and learning how to live each day with eternal significance.

My Thoughts:

Judah Smith has been a well known pastor for quite some time, so I was interested to see what his book said. Luckily it ended up being worth the read.  I had been a little apprehensive about reviewing it because I figured it be just another boring motivational book, but in his writing style Judah is very much like his is on the pulpit; Funny, engaging and heartfelt.  There are so many good motivation pieces, quotes and scripture in the book, and both as pieces in a study group or reading on your own How’s Your Soul is a great book to read.
