5 Stars Out Of 5
A great tool for evangelism!
May 29, 2014
For 35+ years people have read and trusted the teachings of George Sweeting in How to Begin the Christian Life and for good reason. For such a small book (5X7", 202 pages) it really packs a punch! Sweeting covers 12 crucial steps of faith and spiritual growth in a concise and well planned format. The verbiage is simple - not too scholarly or tiresome to read. Additionally, the ideas presented are supported with a plethora of scripture as well as quotes and insights from other trusted Christian teachers (Dwight Moody, John Wesley, Martin Luther, A. W. Towzer, and R. C. Sproul to name a few).
Although I read through large portions at a time, a new believer would do well to tackle each section independently. The reader will find that the topics are broken down into bite sized pieces. Sweeting thoughtfully provides review questions and points to remember which make this book a great option for small group study.
I highly recommend adding How to Begin the Christian Life to your personal library. It's a great tool for evangelism and an excellent gift idea for new believers (and veterans looking to brush up on foundational truths). It will be a permanent addition to my bookshelf and earns 5 stars from me!
