    1. Drew on said:

      It was hard to get over the title. Really hard. But I could definitely see the book as a helpful primer for the Evangelical, wary of tradition, to come in contact with a few new (actually old) ideas. It's almost like Ortberg is making an attempt at spiritual direction, in the traditional sense, through the written word. Not ultimately surprising, considering the book I've read by him, The Life You've Always Wanted, is about the disciplines of the Faith. In some ways, although Ortberg's humor is [...]

      Forgive the cheeseball-title, and this is a wonderful book. I read this book over a couple of weeks, just a chapter or two a night, and it gave me something uplifting, inspiring, and calming to enjoy as I went to sleep. So many books in this genre are much too preachy, or their biblical interpretations end up being very skewed, or too desert-dry to get past the first page. Not "Me". Here are a few of my favorite quotes: "You are not your handiwork; your life is not your project. Your life is God [...]

      Fabulous book. I can't express how wonderful and useful it has been to me! The ME I Want to Be is a fresh look on all the aspects of Christian life, with the basis that God needs to change our hearts first to work through our outer lives. It's such a great message, because so many books today are focused on fixing our ACTIONS, rather than getting to the heart of the problem. Ortberg provides many specific points about living the Christian life, but he makes it very clear that to truly be changed [...]

      The day I finished this book I turned to page one and started all over again. This is a book to read in small bites, not to gobble all at once. There is so much to digest. It doesn't matter how many days it sits on my shelf, whenever I reopen this book, there is something that speaks to me - a lesson waiting - it seems - just for me. But when I start chatting about striving to be the best me God created me to be with friends, I find Ortberg's message is for everyone. God created you as a beautif [...]

      Every time I picked up from where I left off, I somehow always found the answer to a question that's been lingering in my mind for days. It's weird. This book has some really insightful thoughts into the patterns we take regarding our spirituality, and ways to get back into 'the flow'. I especially loved and learned a lot from the chapter on "trying softer". I'd totally recommend this book to anyone at a spiritual plateau or stuck with a disintegrated approach.

    6. Karen on said:

      I don't think I have been so disappointed by a book for a long time. There are one or two parts of this which are worth holding on to but on the whole this is a too-simple 'self-help' book for evangelical Christians who want to be told how great they are, and how everything about them and what they do can be turned round to make it sound like God is totally backing them too - racing fast cars, spending every waking hour on your job, loving every mouthful that passes your lips etc. etc. If you've [...]

    7. Nancy on said:

      I am a big fan of John Ortberg, and this book is another reason why. In this book, he applies biblical knowledge to everyday situations and challenges. Becoming the best "you" you can be is God's plan for you, and following these principles will bring tremendously more peace, harmony and happiness to your life and relationships. He is equal parts intelligent, charming and winsome. He does not dumb down or simplify the themes, but illustrates them in a way that makes you understand how profound a [...]

      This book is amazing. It's become an annual read for me.

    9. JennanneJ on said:

      "Ironically, becoming this person will never happen if my primary focus is on me, just as no one becomes happy if their main goal is to be happy. God made you to flourish, but flourishing never happens by looking out for "number one." It is tied to a grander and nobler vision. The world badly needs wise and flourishing human beings, and we are called to bring God's wisdom and glory to the world. The truth is, those who flourish always bring blessing to others -- and they can do so in the most un [...]

    10. Allan on said:

      I have read this in small chunks over a number of months, as a kind of devotional book. This has helped me to absorb the different points John Ortberg makes along the way. I found quite a few gems in here- I really liked his take on "surrender" - the one decision that really helps. "I do not have to control the outcomes of my life- there is a God, it is not me!" And the next chapter on "trying softer" was also very thought-provoking: "Faith does not need to push the river because faith is able t [...]

    11. Kelly Clark on said:

      This book was an excellent listen. So good in fact that I am seriously considering also buying the Kindle edition so that I can re-"read" it. When I read a book as opposed to listening to a book, I can engage with the text more fully, highlight, make notes, etc. I listened to this book while driving to work so it was virtually impossible to capture the highlights and once the next chapter started it is easy to forget what you just heard in the previous, plus the distraction of actually driving!! [...]

    12. Cindy on said:

      Not what I expected. This is a new view on Christianity and our calling and walk with Christ. There are new idea's and new inspiration for the traveled Christian. I am pleased with this book and the format of communication the author used to illustrate his thoughts about the Me I want to Be. I like the challenge, "Ask for a Mountain" and I like how the author continued to place scripture to reinforce his ideas. A must read for Christians.

    13. Greg Stadter on said:

      A great well-balanced book on who Christ has made you and wired you specifically to be. I feel like this is particularly a great book for high school and college students as you go through key decision points in life. You were made special and different on purpose and the best you exists wrapped in the arms of Christ.Please excuse the cheesy title!

    14. Julie on said:

      It's hard to keep up with John as he reads this book at such a brisk pace! My favorite quote is: "Nothing offered in love is ever lost" - I will be thinking about that for some time. What I like most about John's books is that they give you hope & leave you feeling "I can, I know I can".

    15. Mare on said:

      Another favorite by John Ortberg. He's one of those authors that I just "get". He's not scientific but is tuned into the human condition and to how gracious our God is. I can feel my spiritual life expand when reading his books.

      Uma boa leitura com texto bem elaborado, boa tradução. Convida a uma reflexão pessoal.

    17. Daniel on said:

      I wouldn't call this book a life-changer but it's definitely one I will continue to reference. The Me I Want To Be is a book about you. God calls us to be the person He has made us to be. Everyone has skills, abilities, and dreams. This books explores ways to find those hidden deep inside to shape us into a better version of ourselves.This book started transforming my thinking from the first chapter as it talked about abandoning the dreams that were hindering my growth. The author gives a great [...]

    18. Josh Morgan on said:

      A really good book with a really bad title. I enjoyed Ortberg's walk through what it takes to live a good life and how the good news of God's Kingdom makes that possible here and now. I find Ortberg like an easier to read version of Dallas Willard, probably because they had such a close friendship and Willard influenced him in so many ways. I really do think the title is terrible though.

    19. Joe Buck on said:

      Another good John Ortberg! The last session on transforming your life was just super! My Sunday School Class liked this series but not as much as his video series on Soul Keeping!

    20. Heather Stull on said:

      The trajectory of my life will never be the same because of this book.

    21. Jo on said:

      I enjoy John's books. They are insightful and empowering. They aren't page turners where you can't set them down, rather I tend to chew on thoughts and ideas as I drive around town listening.

    22. Shanna on said:

      Some really great information and perspective. I enjoyed this one, and took a lot of wisdom from it.

    23. Brooke on said:

      Love his writing style - he's perfected the art of making his reader life while also challenging them to godly living.

    24. Sylvia on said:

      Zanim zabierzesz się za tę książkę:1. Pierwsza arcyważna informacja (która pojawia się w polskim przekładzie dopiero na stornie 93) jest taka, że autor książki jest pastorem protestanckim i opisuje poszukiwanie swojego, owszem chrześcijańskiego, ale ponad wszystko protestanckiego "ja". Mimo że protestanci uważają się za chrześcijan, z różnych powodów nie są wiernymi Kościoła Katolickiego. Jednym z tych powodów, jak się okazuje, jest zupełnie odmienny sposób podchodze [...]

    25. Dan Archer on said:

      It's hard to know where to start with this book. Clearly, this book is intended for those who are seeking to change something in themselves as they learn more of God. As such, those that read it probably already haver an expectation of what they want to get out of it. That was certainly my position.I've been trying to really cement a strong understanding of my identity, so this book started at the perfect place for me, it discusses the issues of identity and in the first couple of chapters reall [...]

      I liked Ortberg’s style of writing from the beginning. He’s easy to follow. I really got into the book in chapter three titled Discover the Flow. I have been reading about flow for decades and made it the theme for four of my novels. I really started nodding my head in agreement when I read the story of one of the world’s greatest violinists playing unannounced in a metro station in Washington, DC. He played six of his most beautiful songs on a violin worth several million dollars, but har [...]

    27. Shawna on said:

      I LOVE this book. This book helps you realize that you were purposely and uniquely created by God. God wants us to be the people he created us to be. Therefore we should seek to be the man or woman we were designed to be. Since we are all uniquely different, there are different things we can do to grow spiritually. There is no formula to spiritual growth. We need to identify the unique characteristics, gifts, learning styles, etc God has given us in order to grow to our fullest potential. Some f [...]
