360° Life by Billy Joe Daugherty (plus Giveaway!)

"I've lived as if my life was not my own, as if I have been bought with a price.  My goal is to touch as many lives with the love of Jesus as I can in my brief journey through this earth...  That is how you live the 360° Life-- knowing that you started with God, entered the earth, touched others during your brief stay, and finally completed the circle to enter eternity with God."
--Billy Joe Daugherty

As part of the 360° Life Blog Tour, I recently had the opportunity to read the late Billy Joe Daughtery's last book. It was a very simple, yet encouraging read. He asks these profound questions to the readers:

What if you had a second chance to chart your life?
What if you only had a few days to live?
Would you love?
Would you laugh?
Would you give?
Would you life differently than you do right now?

Ironically, Mr. Daugherty passed away from Lymphoma while this manuscript was still being written. With assistance from his wife, Sharon, and others, final touches were applied and the book was then completed and published. According to the many who knew and loved him, Billy Joe Daugherty truly lived the 360° Life.

This is a wonderful book for anyone to read who is new in their faith or needs fresh encouragement. Even though I didn't agree 100% with his doctrine, I still enjoyed the opportunity to read 360° Life and participate in Waterbrook Multnomah's blog tour.
