For some of us, as we go through life, our Christian core values and purpose seemed to get lost along the way. We get so consumed with technology and other trivial things around us, completely forgetting what being a Christian entail. We all need a purpose and we all seek out a purpose in life. Purpose is that driving force that steers us in the direction which gives us a great sense of fulfillment and happiness. Of course, purpose varies from one person to another. However, as far as being a Christian goes, the term ‘purpose’ has a more deeper meaning. This book offers invaluable insights in rediscovering and knowing the ultimate purpose of Christianity.

The Ultimate Purpose of Christianity is partitioned into several chapters where each chapter serves as a guide in developing and applying the ultimate purpose of Christianity into one’s life. Author Pastor A.O Asabor, lifted a lot of noteworthy scriptures from the bible and into this book and supported each one of them with his own insightful views - reinforcing the words of the bible even more.

What struck me the most is the second chapter with the title ‘Becoming Like Jesus’. The whole chapter was very enlightening to say the least. There’s a lot of new ideas and perspectives that I haven’t considered before which made me ponder for a good minute or two. This book is packed with the author’s own depiction of the verses from the bible, as well as his emphasis on how essential it is as a Christian to honor the words in the bible. I can’t really say much without spoiling the book for the potential readers, but for those who are going to give this book a shot, you will not be disappointed.

Overall, the author drove his point across smoothly and clearly. I haven’t noticed major grammatical errors or typos. There’s just one thing that slightly bugged me and it’s the author’s excessive bible scripture references. At times, it can be overwhelming but perhaps that’s just me. Either way, the bible verses did play a large part in the creation of this book.

I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. This is a short and quick read for me. If you feel some sort of disconnect to your spiritual side or if you’re at that phase in your life where you’re looking for your purpose, then you should grab a copy of this book. It’s worth a read.

Great review! I too would be interested to know if the author shared any type of personal testimony with the readers. I just finished a devotional series about purpose and found it very helpful. This book likely would be too.

I think that bible scriptures should become a part of a Christian's speech after a while, especially if he is a pastor. I welcome the use of as many bible scriptures as can fill the pages. Thanks for the review.
