Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris

"The name for the book was inspired by a parable that Jesus told. Last summer I was on a beach in Florida reading Luke 6 and I came to the familiar story of the two builders. One built his house on sand and it was washed away by a flood. But the other "dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock" (Luke 6:48 NIV). When the torrent struck, his house stood firm."

Joshua Harris' new book is a simple exposition of the doctrine of the Christian faith. I was impressed by the simple way that he was able to convey the truth of doctrine. Other misleading doctrines and theologies are laid out for the reader to see. Several hot button topics in the Christian faith are clearly addressed. It is an excellent read. This is a book everyone should take time for. Many of us have been in the church our entire lives and have no idea what doctrines we hold true or why they are important. They are important because they point people to Jesus. May you find him in these pages.

"The reality of God's grace should never be an excuse to be unconcerned about God's holiness."

This book was provided to me for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
