Nappa (A Mind Like His and A Heart Like His) uses a commonplace seven-letter
word courage to pack considerable punch on the subject of what is fundamentally
necessary to live passionately for Christ. Nappa challenges Christians to pray,
think and worship with hearts of courage. Rather than resort to overused
solutions, Nappa's counsel fairly shouts with a rare freshness. He says that
Christians whose faith has lost its passion should be courageous enough to
admit guilty secrets and failings to others, then be accountable for their
actions. Finally, they should make prayer the backbone of their existence by
relying on the Holy Spirit's strength rather than fickle human stamina. Nappa's
personal narratives frequently reveal his own struggles toward a consistent
selfless heart while underscoring each Christian's desperate need for
rejuvenation at the cross of Christ. This six-part text also discusses the
personal cost of following Christ, how to put passion for Christ to work within
the nitty-gritty of life, the paradoxical beauty of transformed weakness and
failure, and the strength needed to continually press forward with heavenly
vision and a resilient trust in God's faithful provision. Closing out this fine
handbook is a chapter-by-chapter discussion and study guide written by Michael
S. Warden, whose insightful questions complement the principles covered by
Nappa. Readers will appreciate Nappa's tender heart, and his work will inspire
both the wayward and the zealous to a more courageous, fearless Christian
journey. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
