Resilient Review
5 stars By Stephanie, Apr 07 2017
An excellent book that facilitates great growth as a Christian. Resilient provides a reading each day that teaches and gives practical tips on living a Jesus-Shaped life. It covers every topic from being kind to our neighbor all the way through to being bold enough to be willing to be persecuted for our faith. A well-written book with a broad audience. Definitely a book that every new and experienced Christian should read!

"Top marks for words that will appeal to all readers"
5 stars By Kerrie Hadley, Oct 23 2015
Sheridan Voysey has a knack for putting his thoughts and his experiences from a biblical perspective into great reading, that will appeal to all. Brought out in Resilient is his sense of assurance that no matter what hardships we encounter a reliance on God for strength will make us equipped to bounce back effectively.Through Jesus' Sermon on the Mount he has connected Jesus' teaching and unpacked the principles he felt led to address to enable the reader to use this book in a positive way, thus enabling them to have a more powerful and resilient existence.

Stretch yourself
5 stars By andrew gaskill, Oct 21 2015
What ever your beliefs in life, this book will take you further, and will challenge your thinking.  You will gain a new perspective on life.  History proves that Jesus of Nazareth walked this earth, and whatever status we give him, we know he spoke words of power - and I am thankful that some can "interpret" his words into our culture, relevant for 2015, better than I can. I appreciate good books, like this one, to expand His teachings into my life. I often think that radio and TV interviewers (like Sheridan)  have some common ground with Counsellors (of which I am one) in that they ask probing questions that help us go a little bit further into ourselves, and break out something that we were not fully aware of yet.  This book does just that - like an interviewer, like a counsellor - some challenging digs, that for if we are ready, we will benefit. Love is the law behind laws, as Sheridan reminds us.  Buy this book in multiple copies - for yourself and those close to you...........

Tremendous insights on the Sermon on the Mount
5 stars By Ian, Oct 21 2015
This is a book of 90 readings tracing the theme of resilience through the Sermon on the Mount. 

The book came about as a result of Sheridan walking through a season when he read the Sermon on the Mount every day. He began journaling and then writing some blog posts on his reflections.

There are six sections that generally follow the three chapters of the Sermon: Your Invitation, Your Calling, Your Relationships, Your Practices, Your Choices and Your Resilient Life.

Each reading starts with a verse, from the Sermon or other, a page and half of contemplation using a real life example or one from the Bible, and then ends with two questions to ponder and answer. 

It is a book to be read slowly to allow Jesus' words combined with Sheridan's reflections to percolate. To read it too quickly would miss much of the power of its content.

Besides the quality reflection of Jesus' words, the one aspect of these readings that sets it apart is the challenge to do something about them. As Voysey sums up at the end:

"... a resilient life is made by putting his Jesus words into practice."

The Sermon is a guide to live a different life, be "change agents to the world", and Sheridan's readings have challenged me to realise that an intimate walk with Jesus will better enable me to live such a life
