Book Reveiw - Walking With God Dr. Stephen A. Gammon @LifeSentencePub
I am required to inform you that I was provided a complimentary copy of this title in order to provide this review.
Life consists of stages, and those stages consist of lessons learned for the future. The Christian life is exactly the same. As young people we learn lessons from God that prepares us to be mature believers. We start with the faith of our parents, and as we walk through life with God, it becomes more and more our own faith. It becomes more our own as we experience the lessons that God walks us through.
Dr. Gammon has collected many of the lessons that God has walked him through as he has matured in the faith. He has them separated based on the stage of life in which he learned them. They are brief enough to get straight to the point, but pack with tons of good stuff. This would be a great book to us as a daily devotional or even to work through as a family or small group. He is very honest in his own maturing, and shares with an amazing amount of transparency. In his struggles and lessons fellow believers could find strength and hope for their day to day life. He has organized the lessons in a way that would make a great book to read straight through, or to turn directly to the particular lessons that God may have for you. I really enjoyed reading this book.
When I am reading a Christian book, I find those that concentrate on the essentials of the faith. I prefer books that contain what C.S. Lewis would call "Mere Christianity". Dr. Gammon has definitely written a book that contains those basics of orthodoxy. This is a book would be great for believers regardless of the particular denominational background they may have come from. We get so wrapped up in our denominational specifics that we often lose sight of Jesus. It is refreshing to read a book that can bring the great body of Christ together around the essentials of what distinguishes us from the rest of the world. If you are looking for a book to encourage in your walk with God, then I would definitely recommend this book. I have included links below where you will be able to purchase this book in your preferred format.
