Zondervan Growing Deep in the Christian Life

Growing Deep in the Christian Life takes theology out of the ivory tower and enables you to apply it to where you live every day.

Growing Deep in the Christian Life offers an easy-going and practical approach that reviews ten key doctrines and shows their power to strengthen and encourage you in faith.

Swindoll says, "By returning to our roots, we determine precisely where we stand. We equip ourselves for living the life God designed us to live."

I have only read the book half way, but could instantaneously say it's a refreshing book on Christian doctrine. I've always enjoy the way Charles Swindoll clearly and truthfully exposes scripture with captivating yet passionately revealing deep truth in the word of God. I'll recommend this book to anyone interested to know about the solid foundation on which the word of God is based especially those that are new to the christian faith. That's why I'm buying 2 copies right now, one copy for myself and the other for a dear friend. Get yourself a copy.

Excellent! If you want to learn more about the doctrines of the Bible but find technical or "religious" exposition dry, then this is the book for you. Swindoll guides you through the foundational Biblical doctrines of Sin, Depravity, Salvation, Grace, etc with a common sense approach. With his warm style and impacting stories the doctines of the Bible are taught while allowing for the interest to be kept. As a student of Theology I found this book to be a refreshing look at the doctines of God without the jargon most often associated with other works on the subject. If you ever wanted to gain more insight on theology/doctrinal issues this is a must read.
