The New Believer's Guide to the Christian Life

     BOOK REVIEW:  As a new believer, you may have questions about what to expect. You wonder how to please God, or what will happen if you mess up. but being a Christian isn't about what you do. It's about who you are: a child of God. And God loves his children unconditionally. Through His overwhelming love, He changes us from the inside out.
    In this book, Alex Early gives a realistic depiction of the Christian Life. He reveals what it means to find your identity in Christ and how to pray with honesty and transparency. Discover the secrets to living as a child of your Heavenly Father.

    MY REVIEW:  I thought this was a very good book, with many valid points. I would say it is a good book for a new Christian to have, especially if not raised in a Christian environment.
    I found the format of this book to be easy-to-read-yet-full-of-truth-and-thought-provoking-ideas.
    A few of the ideas that I liked are:

  •  I don't want to please my father in order to get grace, but rather, because I've received grace, I want to please my father.
  • To live as God would have you live requires that God be living through you.
  • You are a soul with a body wrapped around it. Therefore, what you do physically is a window into who or what your soul values.
  • And many more abound.
        I recieved this book from BETHANY HOUSE PUBLISHERS in exchange for my honest review.
