    1. The title of this book caught my eye. Untamed, how the wild side of Jesus frees us to live and love with abandon. I have been a Christian for a very long time, and it is hard sometimes to look at the stories you have heard repeatedly with a fresh set of eyes. This book definitely helped me do that. Lisa Harper is a great storyteller, and I think I would love to sit down and talk with her over coffee. I will admit, I was a little put-off, or taken back by how casually she speaks of the Biblical c [...]

    2. Good read! I didn't necessarily like everything about it, but Untamed by Lisa Harper had some really good points.Quotes from the BookPretending Jesus was less than He actually is resulted in someone I wasn't compelled to worship.He is our radically compassionate Savior who risked everything to restore mistake-prone people.Staring at the stars- more importantly, meditating on the One who named each fiery orb and hung it in the sky - is a great reminder that God is grander than we can logically co [...]

    3. “My first lesson in my limitations as a female took place at the breakfast table soon after he became my stepfather,” writes Lisa Harper in Untamed. “As I reached for a piece of bacon, he popped my hand with his butter knife, saying, ‘Girls shouldn’t eat bacon, or they’ll get fat.’“I quickly found out I’d better not ask for second helpings of anything other than salad, much less pilfer from his Oreo stash, because according to [my stepfather], ‘Men aren’t attracted to big w [...]

    4. Through reading the book Untamed, I have become a fan of the author, Lisa Harper. Her humor is very refreshing and makes such an enjoyable read! I found myself relating to her in so many ways as my relationship with Jesus grew stronger. In the first two pages of the book, Harper writes, "Choosing the safe but boring path is an apt metaphor for the years I spent rather numbly and halfheartedly pursuing God." This is definitely how I've become over the years (safe and boring) as I've tried to prev [...]

    5. She has the right to use her master of theological studies degree as a pedestal from which to speak with an I-know-more-than-you-do attitude, but instead of doing that, Lisa Harper uses her breadth of knowledge to lead readers into a deeper understanding of who Jesus is through clear speech, with her life experiences and personality shining through, comprehensively beautiful.Because of her personal journey to know her Savior for who He really is, which is quite different, she discovers, from the [...]

    6. Sometimes Jesus Christ might seem weak and boring. Lisa Harper sees Him as wild and unconventional. Using personal stories and modern retellings of Gospel events, the author touches on twelve areas where our Lord deviated from the norm, including the way He treated women and how He challenged His enemies. This book is set up for self or group study, with discussion topics and questions for every chapter. New Christians or readers looking for light material might enjoy it, but it's not something [...]

    7. This book points to Jesus, and holds truth for the seeker, so I can't really speak against it. But it wasn't completely my cup of tea. I'm not a fan of her style, and it wasn't as deep theologically as I'd prefer.View my full review on my blog: melissanorland/20

    8. Powerful. Moving. Helped me understand where I am with God. It also helped me to understand when I want to be and need to be to have a fulfilling spiritual life. Lisa is a great storyteller.

    9. I absolutely loved this book! I read it while down in Mexico on Vacation! I left it there in case I'd want to revisit it. 1st time reading Lisa Harper after seeing her Speak at Women of Faith!

    10. THis book was really good. It gave me insight into Jesus' personality. It helped show how much value Jesus puts in women and new insight into some of the stories of the bible.

    11. My view of Christ cannot be of a wimpy man, because the picture of Him we see in the bible is far more confrontational and powerful and amazing

    12. Read first, now teaching as a Bible study. Will transform your ideas about Jesus and his relationship with women.

    13. This definitely one of the deeper and enjoyable bible studies I have done. I have forgiven myself and others for things I didn't think I could!
