Christianity is facing great opposition. No one is being thrown to lions, but many followers of Christ face persecution because of their beliefs. At the very least, most know how it feels to end up on the wrong side of a "politically correct" conversation. More than ever before, we need believing and behaving disciples—men and women who are ready to stand up and stand together to change the world as early Christians did: one righteous choice at a time.
Filled with personal experiences and insightful stories, this book emphasizes the importance of living in accordance with our values every single day, with practical suggestions for how to actually pull it off. "Christ doesn't just want people to acknowledge His grace," writes Brad Wilcox. "He wants them to be transformed through it. He doesn't just want people to come to Him. He wants them to become like Him— a process that takes place 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, and throughout all the years of our lives. My Review: I loved Brad's Introduction, what an amazing man! He talked about how we need more genuine Christians who have the courage to be Christlike. Since I am a mom and have served many years in the primary, Chapter Five To Be Like A Child really touched my heart! I liked that he shared this great scripture..."Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven" (Mathew 18:3). We really like the ideas shared on how to live your beliefs everyday of the week. Together we can change the world! My family also loved this quote... "The true end of all Christians is not simply to come to Christ but to become Christlike". The stories shared throughout this book are very uplifting. I really enjoyed reading this book and plan on getting some for gifts!
