Wow. Absolutely loved this book and would suggest it to anyone and everyone. Despite a large pile of other books waiting for me, part of me wants to just immediately start reading this one again. It was that good. ( )

Well written - accessible - and mostly just a great reflection on sanctification via beholding the Glory of Christ. ( )

I highly recommend this book. Easily the best non-fiction book I've read all year. Very life-changing. Matt's style is unpretentious, at times witty, but always profound. Can't wait for his next book to come out! (He's not a bad singer, either!) ( )

Behold the Soul-thrilling, Sin-destroying Glory of Christ.

Look and Live is all about the why and the how to of beholding the glory of God.

I liked the flavor or tone of this book immediately and even more so, the “call” on page 15.

“The call is this: Make your life one unflinching gaze upon the glory of Christ.”

I wondered if this book would slake my thirst for God or if it would increase my thirst for Him. At one point I was wondering if the author was ever going to get around to giving us the how-to, but he did and it was satisfying and not quenching.

The why we need to look was more than adequate, inspiring at times and too wordy at other times. And even though there were places where I thought it was too wordy I also thought, some people will need this. After all if this book were distilled down into a bullet point list it would lose all it’s power and charm. So yes, we need the repetition and wordiness.

I found this author to be open, honest, transparent and real. He was honest about how long it took him to get to this point of valuing the glory of God—it was three years. He was honest about the fact that it wasn’t easy and very tough at times to be persistent and diligent in his beholding.

Overall this book felt full of life and is definitely a keeper. I found it to be more than a mere reminder, but a call, or even a challenge.

Some noteworthy quotes:

“The call is to behold the Son of God, not merely look at Him. It is to gaze deep into the gospel, not merely pray some prayer and then move on.” (page 119)”

“The greatest motivation for obedience is a clearer sight of God.” (page 131)

“The greatest injustice in the universe is that there are human beings who do not worship Jesus Christ .” (page 185)

“The primary purpose of the Bible is to reveal Jesus.” (page 229)

If you feel worn out from striving or feel stuck in sin or you simply already feel thirsty for more of Him, give this book a look!

I have this on again off again feeling about this book. I love how he states that only one addiction can replace another addiction. But I could have benefited from more practical applications. But I did benefit form his sources and am now walking some of the same trails that he walked to learn from those sources. I also appreciate his take on beholding Christ's glory. It is so hard to see it today with having to work around and look through all of the media and the distractions. We have become so spastic and inattentive that we have a diminished capacity to find and see true glory. I am sorry did that last part make sense, I was checking my email.... ( )
