City On Our Knees by TobyMac

TobyMac has long been a frontrunner in the Christian music scene and his single, City On Our Knees has started a revolution among many people, encouraging them to be the change that the world needs and to pray for change in the world. TobyMac has recently released a book with the same name as his hit single. City On Our Knees is a compilation of some amazing inspirational stories that will compel you to move forward with your faith and also to put it into action.

This would make a great book to read as an addition to your Biblical devotions. We can always learn from the experiences of others, like the couple who adopted from a foreign country and when they didn't feel that was enough, decided to send money to the orphanage where their son was from and help his "first family". Sometimes all it takes is one little idea to change a life or to touch thousands. City On Our Knees may catapult you into an idea or two of your own.

City On Our Knees also has quotes from many famous people scattered throughout the book, so even of you're short on time you can open it and still be inspired. The stories are all fairly short though, so it doesn't take long to read one.

The only downside to this book is the plastic dust cover. It is so annoying! You can't read the book with it on so you have to take it off...and the dust cover is so stinkin' cool looking that you want to leave it on. This reader wishes it had just been a paper one with maybe plastic on the front see-through parts.

I'd like to thank Bethany House for the opportunity to review this book.
