Product Description

Your spiritual life should be a battle!

The writer of Hebrews tells us to "hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering" (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply "holding fast" turn into such a workout of faith?

Author and blogger Aimee Byrd invites us to join her in some "theological fitness" training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the "fighting grace" God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life.

Editorial Reviews

If you think all exercise is a drudgery, you're not doing it right. On the other hand, if building strength and stamina exhilarates you, you're more likely to persevere and achieve a greater measure of fitness. That's as true of our souls as it is of our bodies. If the pursuit of theological fitness sounds tedious to you, you're in danger of becoming a spiritual couch potato. Aimee Byrd is here to help. She's the very best kind of theological senseiâ”·an enthusiastic encourager, not a dour drill sergeant. She knows the joy of biblical and theological understanding, and it's an infectious delight. She shows how to gain and maintain theological fitness—and how to find great enjoyment in the exercise.
The deeply informed Old Testament connections and the rich Christological truth so famously given us in the book of Hebrews are intended to shape its very basic challenge to hold fast to Christ with a gospel-informed perseverance. This is just what Aimee does not miss, but drives the point home vividly in her distinctive memorable and popular style. A challenging yet enjoyable and valuable exhortation, and a pleasure to commend.
What a gem this book is--so full of encouragement and so honest and genuine. We see from Aimee what perseverance looks like on the ground, and at the same time her wonderfully practical and readable book is grounded in good theology.
Like a good physical trainer pushes and encourages and equips and is clear about the rigors as well as the rewards of physical fitness, so Aimee Byrd, using the words of the writer of Hebrews, pushes and encourages and equips readers in Theological Fitness. In this scripture-saturated book we are rightly warned of the rigors as well as promised the rewards of holding fast to Christ when we feel the burn and want to give up.
God has promised to persevere his own, yet Christians aren’t passive in the process. In fact, living the Christian life is a real workout. It’s a process that leads to what Aimee Byrd calls “theological fitness.” With deep insight, biblical soundness, and practical illustrations, Aimee shows that “while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come” (1 Tim. 4:8). God has promised to persevere his own, yet Christians aren’t passive in the process. In fact, living the Christian life is a real workout. It’s a process that leads to what Aimee Byrd calls “theological fitness.” With deep insight, biblical soundness, and practical illustrations, Aimee shows readers how to “hold fast . . . without wavering” (Heb. 10:23) all the way to the end.
