Many churches fail to set a clear expectation for the new Christian (the recent ‘convert’ in traditional language) as to how they should immediately begin to grow and mature. The Christian life is a journey and the new believer has just started.
This short book is very accessible in an easy style and provides five
1 – Finding and staying in the right church
2 – Baptism
3 – Grace and truth
4 – A glorious medley of people
5 – People who will be there for me
It immediately encourages the new Christian to take their step of faith seriously and prepare for the immediate next steps.
This provides a sort of ‘baseline’ in expectations, both for the new Believer and for any Church with which they are associated. It is unlikely many new Christians will but this book but it is very likely that Churches will want to gift this book to the new Convert as part of their ‘discipling’ process.
The book provides a useful short glossary of terms to assist the new Believer to understand the language of churches and the basics of Christian life.
This book is linked to a slightly longer book “A Practical Handbook – Caring for New Christians” for churches and church leaders, which also sets a baseline of expectations. The two books may usefully be read together.
Daniel Holland is a former pastor and today works as a full time UK-based evangelist (with Through Faith Missions). His earlier book “Prophetic Evangelism” has been well received and is the basis of a 5-session training course.
Churches, as part of their discipling process, will value this book which might be used as part of a “Seeking God” course or in a post local Mission context. It is envisaged a copy might be given to the new convert to encourage them into fellowship, prayer, Bible study and where relevant, Baptism.
