An open and honest account of Christian life as a new believer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Am I Missing Something? (Paperback)
I have not come across a book that deals with new believers adapting to church life. Ruth is very open and honest which gives the book a distinctly personal feel. The situations she describes are very common to people; opinions of friends, church meeting protocol, what is 'acceptable' to say, fear, doubt, confusion etc Are you a new believer? Read it. Been a Christian for years? Read it. The latter, which I am, forget that church meetings and Christian life in general can be a daunting prospect with misconceptions, how to 'fit in' (acceptance), differing views and attitudes. Ruth shares her experience of all these things and that the love and grace of God covers it all. However, the feelings people have are real and can deeply affect their view of themselves and people need to be supported and encouraged through it. Ruth describes how different people helped and strengthened her but it wasn't always easy.
A very worth while purchase indeed. See it as an investment.
