New Christians struggling to understand and apply their faith will find pastoral guidance in After "I Believe": Experiencing Authentic Christian Living. "Sometimes ... people get stuck right at the start of this journey," writes Mark Roberts, a Presbyterian minister and teacher at Fuller Theological Seminary. "They think that believing in Jesus is all there is to being a Christian ... I explore with them the joy, the growth, and the fulfillment that come bundled with this new way of living." Using a light touch, Roberts tackles such weighty basics as the role of the Holy Spirit, the authority of the Bible, prayer, worship, and evangelism, and strives to make them less intimidating by including anecdotes from his church, family, and popular culture. Roberts's pastoral perspective shows in his strong and repeated emphasis on the importance of community, the need for submitting to the leadership of a church, and the value of corporate worship. Each chapter ends with practical ideas for personal application. As a starting point for new believers, this is a nice introduction to the evangelical Christian life. --Cindy CrosbyFrom the Back Cover:
"In a postmodern world of many voices, each with its own take on life, it can be difficult for a new (or not so new) Christian to know what being a Christian means. Roberts has done a masterful job of introducing key concepts for living the Christian faith. His book is biblically and theologically sophisticated, yet easy to read. Excellent for group study.î Mike Regele, author, Death of the Church; president, Percept Group, Inc.
