Reggie Dabbs is a world recognized motivational speaker. In this book, REGGIE, Dabbs tells his story of his past that could possibly cripple his life and sometimes does. But is his discovery of finding himself, he finds God and his true purpose.
Dabbs’ story will make you laugh and cry. I found myself wanting to be like Reggie! He is very inspiring, and helps you take a good look at your life and how your past might be holding you back. More than a story, this is a spiritual study guide. At the end of each chapter, there are ten very powerful and insightful reflection questions. This book would be great for a group of students who are new or undecided in their faith. His words will challenge the students in ways most other guides will not. He relates to students well through the use of entertaining stories and pondering questions that will dig into their souls and find those hurt s that hinder them.
Dabbs shares funny, personal stories that connect the reader to his message. In one story, his Pinkie Toe talks with the rest of his body; trying to warn the body to stray from harm. He correlates this story to one small voice making a big difference in the world. He also relates Bible stories to his experiences, including the story of Hosea and Gomer. However, the first three chapters confused me – who is his audience? Is he speaking to students or adults? Also this is a book about finding God , but God isn’t mentioned until the third chapter. These little stories are broken up with in other stories creating confusion in the plot. However, if you dig through the confusion, the effort is well rewarded.
