Product Description

The faith God calls you to is far more than a glowing positivism that shields you from life's struggles. It is one that guides you into a deepening intimacy with the God who sustains you in the broad sweep of life. In Authentic Faith, Thomas helps sharpen your spiritual vision and fortify your commitment by examining ten disciplines God uses to forge a fire-tested faith. A biblical view of these disciplines can safeguard you from disillusionment when---not if---difficulties surface in your life. Sharing scriptural insights, the wisdom of Christians through the centuries, and cogent personal observations, Thomas explores the disciplines of selflessness, waiting, suffering, persecution, social mercy, forgiveness, mourning, contentment, hope and fear, and sacrifice. This eye-opening look at what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus will encourage you, bolster your faith, and help you rise above shallow attachments to fix your heart on things of eternal worth.

Publisher's Description

The faith God calls us to is far more than glowing positivism that shields us from life's struggles. It is one that guides us into a deepening intimacy with the God who sustains us in the broad sweep of life.

Bestselling author Gary Thomas helps us sharpen our spiritual vision and fortify our commitment to Christ by examining ten disciplines God uses to forge a fire-tested faith. A biblical view of these disciplines can safeguard us from disillusionment when - not if - difficulties surface in our lives.

Sharing scriptural insights, the wisdom of Christians through the centuries, and cogent personal observations, Thomas explores the disciplines of: selflessness, waiting, suffering, persecution, social mercy, forgiveness, mourning, contentment, sacrifice, hope and fear.

As Thomas reminds us, faith is about something other than a smooth ride through this fallen world. Rather, authentic faith is shaped, tempered, and purified in the flames of struggle. This eye-opening look at what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus will encourage you, bolster your faith, and help you rise above shallow attachments to fix your heart on things of eternal worth.
