Practice By Practice
Word Alive Press 2009 Free Publishing Contest Winner (Non-Fiction).
Who said “practice makes perfect”? Know any practicing Christians very well?
Like learning to play piano, developing a sturdy faith takes time—and deliberate, consistent practice. It involves small things. Commonplace, home things. Mistakes and muddles, even.
Drawing on the author’s experiences over decades of following Christ, this collection of short writings—rich in illustration and humour—will lead you to simple, everyday practices that will strengthen your faith and witness against the crushing influence of a faithless, dizzy world.
