Publisher's Summary

What will you build your life on?

With startling transparency, Joshua Harris shares how we can rediscover the relevance and power of Christian truth. This is book shows a young man who rose quickly to success in the Christian evangelical world before he realized his spirituality lacked a foundation - it rested more on tradition and morality than on an informed knowledge of God.

For the indifferent or spiritually numb, Harris's humorous and engaging reflections on Christian beliefs show that orthodoxy isn't just for scholars; it is for anyone who longs to know the living Jesus Christ. As Harris writes, "I've come to learn that theology matters. It matters not because we want to impress people, but because what we know about God shapes the way we think and live. Theology matters because if we get it wrong then our whole life will be wrong."

Whether you are just exploring Christianity or you are a veteran believer finding yourself overly familiar and cold-hearted, Dug Down Deep will help you rediscover the timeless truths of Scripture. As Harris challenges you to root your faith and feelings about God in the person, work, and words of Jesus, he answers questions such as:

  • What is God like and how does he speak to me?
  • What difference does it make that Jesus was both human and divine?
  • How does Jesus's death on the cross pay for my sins?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit and how does he work in my life?
  • With grace and wisdom, Harris will inspire you to revel in the truth that has captured his own mind and heart. He will ask you to dig deep into a faith so solid you can build your life on it. He will point you to something to believe in again.

    Highly Recommended

    A very readable/listenable book that helps clarify some fundamental Christian beliefs...know what you believe and be able to explain why! It is well referenced back to scripture and uses narrative well to help illustrate key ideas. Big and tricky words are broken down and simply explained. I highly recommend this to any Christian and anyone wanting to get a clear picture of what Christianity is about.

    A humble walk through the reformed pools

    Joshua's take on reformed doctrine Will be eye-opening to the Armenian camp, and A refreshing reminder for those that a swim in the deep waters of doctrine. The illustrations are incredibly fresh and reduced in a conversational way. Josh has a way of making truths practical and introspective. Really love the book, found it to be transformational
