From Country Way June-September 2015

If I had only one word to describe this book it would be 'excellent', however, I have a few more so I will tell you why. This 48 page publication describes itself as, 'A beginners guide for those who want to learn how to live closer to Jesus every day'.

It is an excellent and accessible tool helping people that are just starting out as disciples of Jesus. Aimed at young families, the book could just as easily be used by adults or young people. It is comprehensive and attractively laid out with scope for interaction. If I wanted to be picky I could express disappointment that the book does not include a section on the importance of Christian fellowship (i.e. church), but overall it meets a real need and meets it beautifully.
