Do You Live What You Claim to Believe?
There's an old saying that goes something like this: If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? In other words, does your life prove out your claims of faith?
Author Laura Ross Greiner has tackled this question in TruthDare: Dare to Live the Truth You Believe. It is a book that will challenge you at the very core of your faith--and encourage you to walk in that faith on a daily basis. Here is a description of this excellent book, as well as some information about the author:
Life is full of dares—challenges that require sufficient courage, bold behaviors, and an adventurous spirit. Yet, when it comes to faith, people lack the same courage, choosing instead to stand idly by and wait for permission to live what they say they believe. It’s time to wake up, says author Laura Ross Greiner.
It’s time to fully embrace the dares God has given us: Dare to say yes. Dare to have faith. Dare to trust. And more. With inspiring, captivating, and sometimes heart-wrenching stories of people who dared to believe in the face of great pain, Greiner challenges Christian women to stand up, live big, and embrace the truths of the gospel no matter what. The story of a three-year-old stricken with cancer dares women to see proof that God exists even in hard times. The struggles that a single mom has with depression teach readers to trust that God can change us, if we dare to let Him. The plight of a woman whose husband is having an affair dares us to wait for God’s direction.
While most Christian-living authors promise peace, few stare Truth in the face as boldly as Laura Ross Greiner. The provocative challenges of TruthDare will bring readers on a fulfilling—albeit uncomfortable—trek to a fuller, deeper life spent in God’s grace.
