For many new believers, a variety of questions may arise regarding what to expect in the Christian life. They may wonder how to please God, or what will happen if they mess up. Alex Early's carefully crafted "guide" for new believers, The New Believer's Guide to the Christian Life, offers insightful answers to questions not yet even expressed for those who are new to following Jesus.
While certainly not an exhaustive guidebook for all that goes into the Christian life and faith, The New Believer's Guide to the Christian Life aims to provide answers to common questions, give insights into regular routines and rhythms of the Christian life, and encourage new believers to grow in their discipleship with Jesus. Focusing on issues of the heart with precision and love, Early provides a realistic depiction of the Christian life, covering such topics as identity, prayer, baptism, church membership, and giving—revealing how these things profoundly impact real life in the here and now as a disciple of Jesus Christ who is living in the light of Jesus' sacrifice.
While this book is ideal for new believers, it is also a valuable resource to keep on hand for seasoned Christians, pastors, and ministry leaders. Includes end-of-chapter questions and a "Christianese to English" glossary.

Reading RoverMidwest3 Stars Out Of 5NEW BELIEVERS GUIDE TO THE CHRISTIAN LIFE by Alex EarlyNovember 1, 2016Reading RoverMidwestQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3The 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!
Ruth5 Stars Out Of 5The New Believer's Guide......October 24, 2016RuthQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5BOOK 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.
