High Definition Life: Trading Life's Good for God's Best

by Luis Palau with Steve Halliday

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


When Luis Palau writes a book, I take notes. His sincere writing style combined with his spiritual wisdom always offers readers some realistic and practical teaching. This book does all that and more. These pages actually pulse with excitement! Jesus promised us an abundant life, and this writer offers everyone a chance to experience that blessed pledge.

Each chapter focuses on a key area of life and then compares the worldís response to Godís Word. For instance, the fleeting aspect of pleasure is contrasted with the endurance of true happiness. The superiority and the stability of success over achievement is analyzed. The differences between hope and positive thinking are also examined in the light of today and in the expectation of eternity. Yet, even though the topics are varied, the underlying theme is reaching for the best that God offers. Readers will understand that their wildest dreams are possible with God, but they first need to think outside the boundaries of conventional wisdom.

While the message of this book is truly insightful, itís the writing style that gives authority to these words. Luis Palau is someone who reaches for the best in his own life. He has seen and experienced a fuller relationship with the Lord and readers can trust his advice and admonitions. Itís obvious that this book was written to be experienced, and not just to be read casually. There is life-changing wisdom here and itís all spelled out with a clarity and compassion that everyone will be able to feel.
