Dug Down Deep: Building Your Life on Truths That Last by Joshua Harris

Book Description from
May 17, 2011
What are you going to build your life on?

Dug Down Deep is systematic theology like you’ve never seen it before. Readable. Relevant. Powerful. As best-selling author Joshua Harris shares his own journey from apathetic church-kid to student with a burning passion to truly know God, you’ll be challenged to dig deep into the truths of God’s word.

With humor, conviction and compelling insight Dug Down Deep covers the basics of faith—God, scripture, Jesus, the cross, salvation, sanctification, the Holy Spirit and the church. Don’t settle for superficial faith, dig deep.
"If you're looking for ‘that one book’ that will push you farther down the road to faith than you've ever journeyed before, Dug Down Deep is it. I highly recommend it!" —Joni Eareckson Tada

My thoughts:

As a longtime follower of Christ I’ve come to realize that I don’t know as much as I thought I did.  Dug Down Deep really helped me learn who Jesus is and why he did the things he did.  One thing that I learned was why Jesus is really called the Lamb of God.  I was under the assumption it was because he was God’s only son.  When in fact the title refers to the living sacrifice that Jesus was for the sins of the world.  Calling on the living sacrifice of young lambs from eons ago.  This book really helped me to strengthen my foundation of faith.  I would definitely recommend this book to any young Christian or even those who have questions about the basis of their faith.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
Happy Reading!
