    1 thought on “Me Too: Experience the God Who Understands”

    1. [Note: This book was provided free of charge by BookLook/Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for an honest review.]In reviewing a book like this, there is a tension between two contradictory pulls. On the one hand, this book has a lot to celebrate, and its warm and personal and confessional touch seeks to disarm criticism. On the other hand, though, people reading the book with more biblical knowledge than the author, specifically regarding God's laws, will find a lot to criticize, including th [...]

    2. This book is a great read for those of us who need to know we don't all alone. Others can say "Me Too" to our thoughts and livings. Weece opens up his home, his life and his heart in this no holding back book. I laughed, I cried, I sympathized. Yes it's a good real life read that shows we are not only ones trying break free of this stronghold in our lives.

    3. Jon Weece is a pastor in Lexington, Kentucky, and it's clear from his writing that the Holy Spirit is on fire in his heart. Though I have never heard him preach, I would imagine he is quite entertaining, as his latest book, "Me Too: Experience the God Who Understands" is chock full of stories about how God works in the here and now through average people in every day situations, healing, comforting and giving hope, even when hope seems impossible. The book is divided into three parts: The Cross, [...]

    4. This book is relatable because everyone goes through a hard time or a dip in their life; and though it might feel like we're alone at times, God is always with us.

    5. The idea behind Me Too is good. When you pick up the book, it sounds like you'll be reading about how God understands, how through the personhood of Jesus Christ He experienced many of the feelings we have and a lot of life that we walk through. The back cover copy and description listed here on seem to say that as well. However, the book touches on this idea a time or two and then rambles about stories that don't connect to the point of the book. I re-read the back cover and don't at all see h [...]

    6. ABOUT JON:Jon Weece is married to Allison, and they have two children, Ava and Silas. For the past fourteen years he has been the Lead Follower at Southland Christian Church—a community of fourteen thousand Jesus followers in Central Kentucky who love people in extravagant ways. Prior to moving to Lexington, Jon lived in Haiti for four years.The information above has been copied from Jon’s personal website.John writes, “and thats what this book is about: an eternal Father who specializes i [...]

    7. In Me Too, Jon Weece shared the importance of connecting with others and God. We all have fallen short and sinned and this is why God sent His Son to die for our sins. We all experience emotions, such as fear, anger, sadness, and pain. Many people suffer alone through difficult circumstances and they are needing a help from a friend. He strongly believes in listening to others and there is power in having a friend say, “me too”. Jon Weece shared the story about four men trying to get a paral [...]

    8. You know that you have found a special friend when you share some of your life's stories and they respond with, "Yeah, me too." Author Jon Weece tells us in his new book, Me Too, that God is a God who understands our difficulties and our pain, our thoughts and feelings. Weece says that He is the God of Me too.Me Too is divided into three sections. Part 1:The Cross--What Jesus Did, Part 2: The Church--What Jesus is doing, and Part 3: The City--What Jesus will do. In each section of the book, Jon [...]

    9. We all go through trials and tribulations in our lives. No one said it would be an easy, carefree life. The Bible does not tell us this. In fact, the Bible is filled with passages that detail the struggles of even the most faithful of God’s followers. The key is having faith in a God who is accessible to any of us whenever we need Him. This is what’s at the heart of Me Too. There are plenty of references scattered throughout this book, to show us examples of God’s love for His children. Ho [...]

    10. John Weece's Me Too: Experience the God Who Understands explores the depths of an incarnational theology -- Jesus' experience of suffering and its connection to our own experiences of suffering and pain.Christian faith doesn't require you to smile through your pain, much less praise God for tormenting you. God doesn't enjoy your suffering. But he does understand it -- and, more importantly, he knows how to heal it. Me Too is a book that focuses on Christian living at precisely those moments when [...]

    11. Sometimes I see a book on the review list, and I go ahead and request it, even though I’m not personally excited by it. I don’t expect much of these books, but usually the cover or the back copy appeals to me, so I request it from the list. I’m telling you this to be transparent, and to let you know that I really wasn’t expecting much when I requested Me Too: Experience the God Who Understands.In this book, Jon Weece discusses how we don’t always have to smile when we have pain in our [...]

    12. ME TOO engages the reader from the opening page and holds attention through the end. Weece runs through many of the common life experiences and shows us how God understands. One of the most common experience is pain.In one of the opening pages, Weece writes, "Pain is the common language of human experience. Most people I know are fluent in suffering. They speak it, but they don't understand it. One of the ways people begin to heal is to sit across the table from someone who can say, "Me too."I e [...]

    13. "Me Too" looked at how Jesus understands our suffering. The author covered a wide variety of topics: vulnerability, praying, fear, loving your enemy, hospitality, grace, forgiveness, suicide, abortion, second chances, and more. Each chapter felt self-contained rather than building on each other, through the theme of Jesus understanding our suffering and being the answer that we're looking for is found in each.The author looked to the Bible and Jesus' example of how he dealt with various issues. [...]

    14. I really wanted to give this book five stars, and I probably would have had I not read it directly after reading Jesus Prom (Jon's first book). Both books are perspective changing and life changing, but the messages are so similar that it's hard, at times, to tell the two books apart. While Jon's voice is strong in this book (as well as his first), I was hoping for just a bit more from his second book! Don't get me wrong, I love this book and I'll return to it time and time again, just NOT immed [...]

    15. I recevied complimentary product.Breaking down the simplicity of the book is not easy and most of what I read required deep thinking. The author inputs a great amount of his belief in how God works and helps to ease the reader. I found it to be uplifting and would recommend this book to anyone feeling blue.

    16. Love Jon Weece as a pastor and a teacher. book relating our experiences to God, he's been in our shoes and this world is not the writer of our story
