Hilarious book about making a lifestyle change to become the person you always wanted to be.
This book was hilarious! I had heard of Mark Lowry and his comedy, but I had never heard of Scott Davis. As part of the christianaudo.com review program, I was able to pick up Scott’s newest book – If My Body was a Temple, than I was a Megachurch. Scott walks you through the process of losing a 132 pounds without exercise.

He engages your funny bone as reads the book (and its actually him reading it). I would be driving down the road and he would talk about chicken nuggets and being finger-licking good and rolling his way to a concert, and I was cracking up.

He tells a hilarious story about his encounter with a TSA agent. If you travel, you will appreciate this story. He details his fight to get started and the moment “he was sick and tired of being sick and tired." This moment drove him to begin a life-changing process of developing healthy choices and lifestyle change.

He highlights “his golden nuggets” for weight loss and tells you do the exact opposite and you will be okay. If you have yo-yo’d with your weight and are thinking of making a lifestyle change, this might be the book for you.

Scott discusses the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual changes he experienced as a result of losing his weight. He may have changed his outside appearance, but the work done on the inside was equally, if not more important, than the work done to the physical appearance.

I encourage you to pick up this hilarious read, and enjoy learning how you can shed those unwanted pounds.

Amazing Audio Quality
Davis, the author and reader of this audio book, is laugh-out-loud hilarious. <!--more--> I have never laughed so hard from listening to an inspiring and true tale of weight loss. I'd say as humorous as Jon Acuff and "Stuff Christians Like," listeners will find this audio book to be quite the catch, and a worthy one at that. Davis reads the text with ownership, in a fluent and excellent manner. Not grandiose or too plain, the text seems to be an excellent offer, only outdone by the beauty that is this audiobook.

The Score:
+5 for humor
+3 for narrated by author
+4 for not wanting to stop listening
= +12

SG highly recommends this audio book edition of the text for all readers.

A hilarious look at important issues
"If My Body Is a Temple, Then I Was a Megachurch," by Scott Davis, is a great blend of inspiration and comedy, detailing one man’s battle with his weight, and how he lost 132 pounds in one year. The author himself is narrating this audiobook, and his Southern charm adds to the natural feel. It’s easy to feel like you’re sitting over a (healthy) meal while he tells the stories of his childhood and adult life.

While sharing the embarrassments, struggles, and emotional turmoil he dealt with, Davis outlines the lies he’d come to believe and how they contributed to his obesity. He systematically disarms each of those lies using the truth of God’s Word, without coming across as preachy. Although I’ve never had a weight problem, the life lessons discussed applied to me in various areas, both spiritually and emotionally. There are practical points about healthy living and eating, but also deeper truths such as allowing God to be the center of every area of life.

Scott Davis’s honesty touched me, his natural humor had me chuckling, and his discoveries made me examine my own spiritual shortcomings. I’d recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those who struggle with their weight and want something more than a fad diet or quick fix.
