What I'm Reading: Dug Down Deep

Joshua Harris, author of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" has written a new book entitled "Dug Down Deep." In his new book Josh sets out to explain about theology and doctrine and how it is vital to the Christian faith. This book is written in a very clear format, step by step about what theology and doctrine and in a clear explanation of why it is important.

However, I found this book to be a bit boring. I believe this book is great for new Christians and offers a lot of good information, but it didn't really hold my attention. This book is a great starting place for many new Christians and offers real life experience from Josh as he seeks a deeper knowledge and understanding of doctrine while explaining to readers difficult concepts. In addition, this book includes an in-depth study guide, which makes it even more understandable for new believers. 

In one part of the book Josh states, " I know from experience that it's possible to be a Christian but live life on the surface .The surface can be an empty tradition. It can even be doctrine without application." These quotes challenged me to go to a deeper level, but again, I believe this book covers many basics of the faith. It was a great refresher, but not a book that I truly enjoyed.

Thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah publishing company for providing me this complimentary book to review. These opinions are my own, they did not pay me for this review.
