I just finished reading Joshua Harris’ book Dug Down Deep. I like to think of it as coffeehouse systematic theology. Easy to read, but deep in truth.
Saint Peter writes,
…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect…
(1 Peter 3:15)
Joshua certainly does this, making clear the major tenets of Christianity, weaving his own journey of the Christian faith into it, and leaving us with a fine example to follow in how we answer those who ask about the faith we hold—knowledgeable & firm, yet humble and loving.
He makes a lot of great points along the way which I, of course, highlighted and will share with you all. However, since I bought the physical book instead of the Kindle version, transferring those to the blog was a bit more time-consuming, and I wasn’t able to share them all. But that’s ok because you’re going to read the book for yourself anyways, right?
Here’s the promo for the book from joshharris.com. The quotes I highlighted are after the jump.
