Book Review: I am Second

Like me, you have probably seen the billboards and the bumper stickers that read I am Second.   At first, I didn't know what it all meant until I looked it up online.  I was amazed at the stories I came across.

Needless to say, I was very excited to read and review the book I am Second by Doug Bender and Dave Sterrett.  This book is filled with the stories of many people who lived their lives for themselves.  Then at some point, they met Jesus and began living for Him, making them second. 

There are the touching stories of mighty athletes and greedy business people.Those who tore away from religion. There are stories of those broken by drugs, alcohol, and abuse.  The stories of those ravaged by the pain of divorce.  All stories of people who lived a life focused on self.  But each story unique in how these broken sinners came to know, love, and surrender first place to Jesus Christ.

Each chapter includes a QR code to scan to watch the video of that story and stories like it.  The websites are also available. 

This is an amazing book that is sure to touch the heart of those who are already second and those that need to be.

I am thankful to have received this book free from Thomas Nelson for the purpose of an honest review.


  1. After reading this review, I am anxious to read this book.

  2. I wanted to say thanks for reviewing my book, I am Second: Real Stories. Changing Lives. I really appreciate your kind review. I also wanted to let you know that I have another book coming out on December 9 called Live Second: 365 Ways to Make Jesus First. The book contains 365 daily readings and prayers meant to inspire people to make Jesus First. I am organizing a Week-of-Second Blogging Campaign for bloggers like yourself.
