Book Review: Don't Look Back Author: Christine Caine

Moving on is not a one-time decision. It's a way of living.

There are times in life when we look back and feel desperate to make time stand still, particularly when we get blindsided by unexpected changes. But we can't stop the flow of life, and we can't stop time. What's more, looking back doesn't enable us to go back. More often than not, it just makes us stuck. In a place. In a space. In a memory. In a mindset. In a habit.

In Luke 17:32, Jesus drops three little words: "Remember Lot's wife." We don’t know her name, history, or story. All we know is that when she was fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah, she was told not to look back, and she did the one thing she was asked not to do. She looked back and turned into a pillar of salt. And out of the 170 women referred to in the Scriptures, she's the only one Jesus told us to remember.

With a rallying cry to "Remember Lot's wife," Bible teacher, international speaker, activist, and bestselling author Christine Caine motivates us to stop looking back, to get unstuck and to keep moving forward into God's promises and purpose for our lives.

We may not know all God's plans for us. We may not know where we are going, how long it will take us, or what we will encounter along the way, but with the strategies Christine Caine gives, we can move on from where we are to where God wants us to be.

In this new book, Christine will motivate you to

  • stop looking back and start looking to Jesus;

  • invite Jesus in to help you get unstuck from the many places we often find ourselves;

  • move on from where you are into all God's plans, purposes, and promises for your life; and

  • look forward to the future and keep moving toward it in faith--especially when your world is nothing like it once was.

Jesus is beckoning us onward into the newness of what lies ahead. Stop disqualifying yourself by getting stuck in the past. It's time to remember Lot's wife and not look back but move forward boldly.

Don't Look Back


Christine Caine

What drew you to read this book?: 

I received a word of encouragement from my mother in law that I should prepare to start 2024 without any baggage from previous years. Immediately the Holy Spirit gave me Isaiah 43:19. When I saw this book, I knew the Lord was speaking to me.

What impact did this book have on your life?: 

It challenged my thought patterns. I was convicted that I can easily get into a "stuck" mode and dwell on what was, whether good and or bad. It helped me to be aware of my thought patterns, and be intentional to take captive of any thoughts that are not from the Lord. It encouraged me to always look life with a lens of faith instead of fear and flesh.

In a paragraph, what is the main point of this book?: 

This book equips readers to start looking forward to what is possible and not look back to what was. It encourages readers to follow the plan and purpose of God for our lives and not what we feel is convenient and comfortable. It challenges you to intentionally look if your walk is of faith or fear.

Who would benefit from reading this book?: 

Anyone who is feeling stuck and can not move forward. Anyone who believes that they are called to more but not sure how to start.
