How should a christian live?

How Should a Christian Live? A question even veteran disciples should ask, certainly one that young Christians need urgent answers to. With this handy study guide and the audio of 1 Corinthians through to Philemon on your MP3 player you are all set to find some answers.

On its own How Should a Christian Live? gives an introduction to following Jesus that a 10-year-old can understand and enjoy. It could also form the basis of a guided discipleship program. There are even useful activities for bored kids to do while pretending to listen to their youth leader!

Strengths

A good introduction to New Testament principles of living the Christian life. Topics include: the authority of the Bible, God’s promises, God’s unconditional love, faith, God’s gifts, right thinking, humility, wisdom, fear/trusting God, wise speaking, holy living and seeking the prize of God’s kingdom. The audio Bible is great.

Weaknesses

Some guidelines/advice on how to get the most out of the journaling sections would be useful, given that the book is targeted at early-teens and tweens. A formatting error has set the wrong page template for the first odd page of each journaling section from page 41 onward. The devotions are quite ‘warm and fuzzy’, they do seem to be targeted at a fairly middle-class audience and may not appeal outside that audience.

Summary

Good introductory devotions and great audio Bible, use this to begin your discipleship journey but don’t stop there. Devour the studies, hear the Word, pray and meditate over it using the journal. Then live it and keep digging even deeper.
