Book Review: My walk with Christ

My Walk with Christ by Delbert D Hobbs is a collection of thoughts by the author about his faith and stance on many things in the church and Bible.  Ever since the fateful night Delbert Hobbs gave his life to Christ, his life has changed drastically. Through his conversion and many years of faithful serving and learning, Delbert Hobbs has come up with a collection of his hot topic points that he discusses in his book.  Many of these views I agree with, some I do not have the same interoperation as he.

I started out really liking this book.  From the title I assumed this book would be about the author himself and his journey to and through faith. Instead it is more a quick synopsis of his he came to faith followed by a long list of “Here’s what’s wrong with Christians today” stance.  Although I agree that many Christians today are just floating through life not taking a stance when one is needed on many topics, somehow Mr. Hobbs comes off as self-righteous and elitist in this views and practices of holidays, family, and his personal health issues.  I am glad that God has given him a clear path on how to deal with this pain and his family but just because I decide to stay in contact with my family or take medication when necessary for pain does not mean I have a lesser faith than he.

All in all I would not recommend this book to anyone I knew to read.  The book is written in a broken format and has too many comments and harsh legalistic viewpoints that I do not agree with


Note: I was given a copy of this book to read and review for free.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
