I love this book! "The Fruitful Life" is easy to read and like many other Bridges' books, it has plenty of Bible verses to back his words, so you know you are reading biblical sources. Best of all, this book contains study questions at the end of each chapter for you to read and meditate upon. "The Fruitful Life" is just what a Christian needs when it comes to "bearing more fruits" or "be more like Christ." This book teaches the basics of each fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, or simply Galatians 5:22-23.For instance, before I read the chapter on Love, I thought love as in loving others like how God loves us or love others as much as yourself. Well, I was right in a sense but loving others also means that we give our time, energy and money. Loving others means we are to forgive them and show care for them. Loving others isn't just loving the one you love, but also loving the ones you don't love, or your "enemies" sort of speak. We only know the dictionary meaning of these fruits but when it comes to how to practice them in lifeBridges got the answer.
