Having spent time with Krish Kandiah at Cape Town 2010 I thought I’d take the time to read Lifeswap: Finding the Life You Always Wanted.
Lifeswap captures one of the main themes of John’s Gospel: life changing encounters with Jesus. Krish walks us through seven peoples lives re-examining their existence and calling into question how their life choices led them to the point they find themselves at. Whether it is Alfred Nobel, who had the opportunity to read his own public obituary through a mistaken identity, or a young woman living her life in an online fantasy, each character is thrown into questioning their choices.
Each person is then compared with a character in the Bible facing the same philosophical struggles or questions and how their questions and exposure to Jesus helped them positively resolve their choice. The chapter concludes with a “Lifeswap – aftermath” where the threads are drawn together to shine a light of understanding.
This book would be most useful to those wrestling with their life direction or challenging the choices they have made. Life Swap is written in a light and easily readable style, with many examples of scripture and quotable quotes.
