Book Spotlight — Point of View

22 Apr

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, former Survivor contestant and Fox News anchor, was known as a conservative voice on The View. She certainly voiced her own very decided opinions. But over the course of her life she discovered that the opinions of others were very important to her, until she discovered it was God’s point of view that really mattered. Hasslebeck’s new book, Point of View, explores her faith journey. While I have not read this book, I know that there are many who would be interested in it. Please check out the blurb and the author’s info and decide for yourself.

Recognized from her roles on Survivor, The View, and FOX & Friends, celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck presents a deeply intimate journey of faith, told through the important moments in her life.

“Point of view,” by definition, is a particular attitude or way of considering a matter. Through her nearly two decades of broadcasting, Elisabeth learned the necessity of extracting the point of view of the person being interviewed on a particular topic or subject or experience. Doing so allows you to see issues and truths through another’s eyes. It requires a shift in perspective to see the story through their lens.

In this illuminating book, Elisabeth walks through the times — from her national celebrity days to her newest role as CBO (Chief Breakfast Officer) — where she saw something differently than how God wanted her to, and the path back to His point of view was sometimes rocky but always revealing. Sometimes God’s intentions for her were clear, yet other times she encountered situations so uncomfortable and blurry that she could only ask for His wisdom.

In this book, Elisabeth welcomes you into the many different, and often divergent, points of view that she has witnessed and learned from along the way. It is a journey that brought her to the ultimate point of view that she discovered in the Word of God — that until she sees herself as He sees her, she is not seeing at all. As you read through the pages here, she invites you to make the same discovery for yourself.

Daytime Emmy Award winner Elisabeth Hasselbeck was a co-host on ABC’s The View for a decade before joining the morning lineup as co-host of Fox and Friends in 2013. The author of the New York Times bestseller The G-Free Diet, she is also the creator of NoGii, a line of all-natural gluten-free protein bars. She and her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, an ESPN NFL analyst and former NFL quarterback, have three children, Grace, Taylor, and Isaiah.
