A Great Theological Primer
May 29, 2011 1 Comment
I really enjoyed reading Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris. Harris has written a serious theology book in a way that new or your Christians can understand. He deals with doctrines such as God, Scripture, Jesus, the Cross, salvation, sanctification, the Holy Spirit, and the Church.
For each doctrine, Harris introduces the basics of it and then he gives examples from his life that illustrate the importance of the doctrine. Harris does not shy away from the theological terms. He defines them and them describes then in ways that are practical and memorable. This method makes the teachings he gives more enjoyable to read. Often, I think those reading the book would not realize they are being taught.
I think this book would be an excellent primer for a youth group or a new believers class. The book includes a discussion guide for this very purpose. I am considering having my daughters to read this book or to read it with them. I can highly recommend this book to you. Reading it will be time well spent.
