Christians are always looking for ways to improve themselves. It goes along with conviction and desire to live to be more Christ-like. Chip Ingram has penned a beauty in identifying 10 terrific areas of the Christian life to improve, taking you from a good Christian to a great Christian.
Chip is going to challenging to think great thoughts, fill your mind with great books, surround yourself with great people, and then takes you through a better understand of prayer, risks, and empowering great people. This is only the surface of a book that is rich in scripture and practical examples of elevating each of these topics.
In reading this book, my eyes were opened up to how I should structure my friendships. Finding a mentor figure, and growing my prayer life. It helped me reinforce that reading great books was the nourishment that my mind needed. Finding a mentor has been my biggest struggle, and his point of almost stalking someone really hit home. It even made me think I should stalk Chip.
I normally spend 1-2 weeks reading a good book. This one had discussion and challenges at the end of each chapter. It kept me engaged for 3 months while I read and re-read chapters and parts of chapters. I filled out 3×5 cards as Chip instructed me, and used it as a true guide of growth.
I can’t emphasize enough. Buy this book. Read this book, and re-read this book. Don’t put it down until you’ve grown from it after every chapter. May you find this one of your Paul’s in life.
