Halfway is no way to live.
Quit holding back. Quit holding out.
It’s time to go all in and all out for God.
The good news is this: If you don’t hold out on God, God won’t hold out on you. If you give everything you have to follow Jesus, you’ll receive amazing spiritual rewards. But this reality also comes with a deeper truth: Nothing belongs to you. Not even you.
In All In: Student Edition, Mark and Parker Batterson explore what going all in can mean for your life, sharing unique illustrations and unforgettable stories, as well as compelling accounts of biblical characters. Throughout, they demonstrate the amazing things that can happen when you surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Mark Batterson writes: “When did we start believing that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things? Jesus didn’t die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous.”

- Review by Victor
An easy read, with a straight message, is my condense opinion of : All In, a book of Mark an Parker Batterson.
If I were to find a word to describe its usefulness, without hesitation I will say: Introspection. I have to say that I took time to read this work of Mr. Batterson, not just for the reason that I took it as a text book, but also because I considered elevating myself with the guide within the message of All In, and making this an extraordinary experience.
I am aware there are many complex books, filled with psychology and social advice, the book All In, certainly is one of a kind, at least if you are an avid Christian in search of an inspirational lecture that does not bailed out of the principles of the Scripture.
A good book to read, keep handy and to share with others, regardless of whether as gift or lend.
I received the student edition, and I am eager to look out for the entire collection.
