I was adding this book to our online library catalog and the title caught my attention, so when I finished for the day I sat down to read. Immediately struck by the easy writing style and faithful biblical content - it felt like a friendly conversation about what it means to truly believe in Jesus.
Divided into three parts, the author walks through the difference between being a Sunday Christian and a true follower of Christ. Part one encourages the reader to make an honest diagnosis - "am I a fan or a follower." Part two discusses Jesus' invitation to follow Him and what His expectations are. Part three gives examples of how we can follow.
"We are saved by God's grace when we believe in Jesus and put our faith in him, but biblical belief is more than something we confess with our mouths; it's something we confess with our lives."
There were many points where I recognized areas I need to improve and where I was prayerful for others that came to mind as I read. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants a deep relationship with Christ but feels like their current one is mediocre at best.
Available on Amazon for under $20, it can easily fit into most budgets.
