Active Spirituality: Grace and Effort in the Christian Life is quite honestly one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Wonderfully written, and there was so much beautiful theology that drove my heart to worship again and again. The theology was deep and rich, yet it wasn’t above anyone’s head. In this fictional portrayal of the author mentoring a young believer through letters, I think there is a lot here for anyone who loves the things of God to benefit from. Personally, I was encouraged again and again. The struggles this young believer dealt with aren’t limited to new Christians. As I read the letters of encouragement, and sometimes rebuke, to this young man…I too was encouraged in my own walk and spurred on to be faithful in the midst of whatever struggle I was having. I also enjoyed the many references to other works of theology and literature from the great saints past and present. If you’re like me, after reading this book you’ll have an even bigger “to read” pile.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
