For a lot of people, spiritual growth means learning more about God or trying to do better. Darryl Dash says that growth in our Christian life is more than this. He shares about putting the gospel to work in all areas of your life in How to Grow.
The book gives practical tips for growing in your faith. Far from being hard, the steps in the book are down to earth and simple to understand. They help form a foundation that will give you a firm base to grow in your spiritual walk. Each chapter is well written and provides examples from the Bible and personal experience.
I have spent many years trying to grow spiritually by just learning more and keeping a close eye on how I behaved. In fact, it seems like many books on spiritual growth point in this direction. How to Grow takes a different direction. Darryl Dash points out that learning more of God’s word and working on our habits are only part of growing, not the sum total of it. This is one of the few books that I’ve read that doesn’t say that spiritual growth is something you initiate in yourself. The book would be a good one for any Christian to read, no matter your age or how long you’ve been a Christian.
I received a free copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
