Mark from Boston, MA, writes, "What a book! I just read Dug Down Deep and it is easily my favorite book by Joshua Harris. This is a systematic theology for the average Christian. The whole time I was reading this book I kept thinking about the young people in our youth group. This book addresses the major doctrinal beliefs that all Christians should know and it does so in a way that is accessible and understandable. Harris uses life stories along with the Biblical narrative to explain what we believe as Christians and why. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to clarify their understanding of the core doctrines of the Christian faith. I would heartily encourage this book to youth leaders as a great way to walk their students through the key tenants of the Christian faith." Visit Mark's blog City on a Hill.
My newest book is very short and to the point. It's called Humble Orthodoxy and it's about why Christians should both care about truth but also be gracious in the way we communicate what we believe. I see too many people wishy-washy about the essentials of the faith. I also see too many people who are orthodox but really kind of mean and arrogant. Neither of these options glorify Jesus. Here's a review of the book.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. There are a number of articles and resources here, but I don't do new posts on it as frequently as I used to. You know how it goes. Blogs are so 2008. But come see me on either Twitter or my Facebook Page where I post more often. (Or just stay off social media altogether and enjoy a richer life.)
Jesus taught his disciples that they should always pray and never give up (Luke 18:1). In these three sermons I look at some of the hardest moments in the lives of Paul, Elijah and David and how God met them and sustained them through trouble. Listen here.
