My friend Patrick is an impressive young man. He loves Jesus, honors his parents and has a heart for God's people. All this and he's just 12 years old. So I was very encouraged when he sent me the following letter about Dug Down Deep:
Hey Mr. Harris!
I want to say thank you SO much for writing "Dug Down Deep"! I just finished it recently and I LOVED it! The way you wrote it was humorous, easy to understand, and helpful. Your many illustrations made me understand the other parts of the book. I've been reading it at night, and it's like digging down deep into the truth of what we believe as Christians. Also, it really challenged me to live my life all for Christ. I didn't ever think of the parable of the wise man building his house upon the rock the way you showed it!
One of my favorite parts of your book is "The Room." I was so moved by that dream. Afterwards I went onto your blog and watched the video about it, which was very moving as well. Thank you so much for putting that in your book!
I also loved the chapter on how your dad got saved. That is such an amazing story, and it helped me see that Jesus can save anyone!
Probably my absolute favorite chapter was the one on the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is probably the member of the Trinity that we know least about, and that chapter helped me understand better about what He does.
Thank you so much for writing this! It reminded me of all the things that the Christian faith is built on, and helped me to understand theology and orthodoxy better in an easy, interesting way. Thanks!!!!!!
