Faith that is alive puts the truth into practice. Christian faith rests upon divine truths woven throughout the Bible. But to become living faith, these truths must inspire a set of convictions that shape the way we live.
What are the central truths of the Bible? What does a life shaped by those truths look like in the real world? By sketching core biblical ideas and pairing them with corresponding character studies from the Old and New Testaments, fourteen simple convictions emerge.
- God is in control (Esther)
- Spiritual growth happens from the inside out (Mary Magdalene)
- Christ is worth it (Stephen)
- All I have to do is fear God (Jehoshaphat)
- And ten more
With discussion questions, this book serves well either as a beginning study or a spiritual refresher course.
