understanding theology from a real life perspective
However, Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris definitely doesn’t fit that stereotype.
Mr. Harris writes in a practical, real-to-life way that helped me see the relevance of the “dry, boring” things in my own life. Though he uses big words like “theology,” “orthodoxy,” and “doctrine,” that we usually shy away from, he breaks them down to help you understand what they mean and how they are already a part of your thinking.
With chapter titles such as “God with a Bellybutton” and “The Invisible Made Visible,” Mr. Harris brings into focus the reality of a Savior who came to live with, teach, and save us, and the responsibility we have, when we accept Christ and become believers, to show the world we are His body and family.
“The church is how God makes himself known in the world.” – Dug Down Deep
Overall, I found Dug Down Deep to be a practical look at the spiritual strength and benefits that come from a personal understanding of Biblical doctrine, theology, and orthodoxy. It is exciting to see the impact that a better view of God’s will and Word can have on your faith.
