“Life Without a Critical Spirit” is the follow-up book to Jim Hammer’s “Victory Over a Critical Spirit.” In hist first book, Hammer successfully discusses the negative consequences of a critical spirit and how it goes against who we are in Christ. In this book, however, the author doesn’t succeed in accomplishing what he sets out to do. In the beginning, he states how he was spurred on by his peers and students that he has ministered to over the years to continue the discussion on the topic of a critical spirit because he has much more to say. The problem is, what he has to say doesn’t really go anywhere, and worst of all does not engage with the topic at hand.
