* Ask a group of Christians if they believe in Christ as Savior, and you'll likely hear "yes!" But inquire whether they live like Jesus, chances are you'll be met with silence. Why? Using Scripture, reflections, and spiritual exercises, Moon offers a 30-day program to help you bridge the gap between believing and actively practicing a Christ-filled life. 224 pages, softcover from Baker.
Ask a crowd of Christians whether they believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior, and all hands will go up. Ask the same crowd whether they live like Jesus, and most of those same hands will come down. Why is this? Why is it so hard to bridge the gap between belief and real life?
Respected author, professor, and psychologist Gary W. Moon thinks it has to do with our hyper-intellectual but non-experiential method of living the Christian life. In this winsome book Moon provides a thirty-day apprenticeship with Jesus, whereby readers will actively practice being with Jesus day in and day out. Each day's reading uses compelling stories and scripture to illustrate a point and closes with a suggested apprenticeship activity.
