God of the Underdogs by Matt Keller

We have all felt like an underdog at some time in our lives.  The author takes the reader down a road of modern day examples and relates those with the stories in the Bible.   The book is in what the author calls the nine excuses (or chapters).  Each excuse or chapter is associated with a person from the bible.   Excuse 1 is from David about how he was not qualified.  Excuse 2 is from Paul about dealing with the past and getting over it.  Excuse 3 is from Jacob about a person reputation.   Excuse 4 is from John the Baptist about dreams, no matter how small or large.  Excuse 5 is from Jesus about a person’s potential and the lack of everyone to notice it.  Excuse 6 is from Mephibosheth about your relationships and if they are to the right people.  Excuse 7 is from Gideon about lack of resources.  Excuse 8 is from Esther about slim chances.  Excuse 9 is from Moses about insecurity. 
Anyone can benefit from reading this book.
I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review of the book.
