Losing the Cape
How to be a hero when you’re feeling anything but super
Despite all the superhero hype, the problems and pain in our world aren’t going away. In fact, it often feels like the threats just keep coming. But the good news is that God has placed you here for such a time as this. And the even better news? You don’t have to get rid of your anxiety, debt, speech impediment, extra weight, health issues, disability—or any other weakness—to be used by God. What this world actually needs is less-than-super people making small but significant differences in their own corners of the world.
Through inspiring stories from the Bible and his own life, Dan Stanford demonstrates that with God availability is more important than ability. Losing the Cape is an invitation to start making the world a better place through your ordinary, everyday presence.
My thoughts: In a world enthralled by super heros, this book shows the reader how being a hero is about moving forward and completing the seemingly small tasks right in front of us. I love how it is written in such a way that makes you feel like you are having a conversation with a good friend. Filled with humor and wonderfully thought provoking, I enjoyed this book immensely! It really encouraged me to do more where I am at in life.
I received this book from Moody. This is my honest review.
