Publisher's Description

What Life as a Christian Really Looks Like

New believers need to know what to expect. While many books cover the nuts and bolts of new faith--how to read the Bible, how to pray, how to find a church--in this book, Alex Early focuses on issues of the heart. What are Christians supposed to feel? What happens when they sin? What does God want from them? Designed to challenge and reassure, this book gives a realistic depiction of the Christian life, and includes such topics as how to rest in God's love, what forgiveness looks like when you blow it, what it means to find your identity in Christ, and how to pray with honesty and transparency.

God isn't surprised when we struggle, and although being in a relationship with God is amazing, he never promised that this life would be easy. He can handle "real" people, and he pours out his reckless love regardless of what we do or think on any given day. We all need to be reminded of this, but especially those new to the faith.

This book is ideal for new believers, but seasoned Christians should also have copies on hand to give away. Includes end-of-chapter questions and a "Christianese to English" glossary.

    The questions of others in this book were satisfying and interesting. I disagreed strongly with, and felt some of the definitions in the Glossary were misleading and inaccurate.No offense. Experiences differ, but as a new Christian, this Glossary would have left me gasping in confusion.

    "What Maturity Looks Like" failed to resonate soundly, with any faith journeys or solid formation basis, but I believe it described what could be a portion of the journey.

    I liked the image of the soul wrapped in the body-as if the body is the artform used to express what the soul values.

    Favorite quotes:"when you wash your face, remember your Baptism.", and "To pray is to listen to the one who calls you, "my beloved daughter", my beloved son", "my beloved child".-Henri Nouwen. I loved this quote!

    BOOK REVIEW: As a new believer, you may have questions about what to expect. You wonder how to please God, or what will happen if you mess up. but being a Christian isn't about what you do. It's about who you are: a child of God. And God loves his children unconditionally. Through His overwhelming love, He changes us from the inside out.

    In this book, Alex Early gives a realistic depiction of the Christian Life. He reveals what it means to find your identity in Christ and how to pray with honesty and transparency. Discover the secrets to living as a child of your Heavenly Father.

    MY REVIEW: I thought this was a very good book, with many valid points. I would say it is a good book for a new Christian to have, especially if not raised in a Christian environment.

    I found the format of this book to be easy-to-read-yet-full-of-truth-and-thought-provoking-ideas.

    A few of the ideas that I liked are:

    I don't want to please my father in order to get grace, but rather, because I've received grace, I want to please my father.

    To live as God would have you live requires that God be living through you.

    You are a soul with a body wrapped around it. Therefore, what you do physically is a window into who or what your soul values.

    And many more abound.

    I recieved this book from BETHANY HOUSE PUBLISHERS in exchange for my honest review.
