Book Review: Growing Your Faith by Jerry Bridges

Growing Your Faith by Jerry Bridges is a book that instructs how to grow in your walk with the Lord.  Topics include discipline, praying, humility, accountability, praying with others, saying no, and trusting God among many other subjects.

The first couple of chapters did not entice me to continue.  I was extremely tempted to give up on the book.  I decided to set it aside and come back to see how I felt about continuing.  I cannot pinpoint what it was about the book that did not grab my attention.  Maybe it was my inability to absorb the information effectively.  When I came back to the book the next day, I very much enjoyed the book.  It was very refreshing.

I am glad that God opened my eyes to absorb the information provided within the pages after the second try.  I think we all want to strengthen our walk, and this book helps to give us the tools to do just that.

I received this book free from NavPress as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
