Radical Christian Living–Let God Change Your Life


Greg Laurie, in his newest book “Let God Change Your Life,” calls us to return to radical New Testament Christian living using the three critical components of knowing God, discipleship and making Him known.  Biblically, the radical Christian life is the normal Christian life, Laurie asserts.

The first section, “How to Know God,” consists of pieces of Laurie’s personal testimony and teaches what it means to know God and how to be a part of the kingdom of God.  Laurie follows with a section on the importance of discipleship in today’s culture through Bible Study, prayer and worship.  He concludes with one of the best discussions on evangelism I’ve read in a long time.  He stresses the importance of talking to non-believers about Christ in healthy ways and offers helpful suggestions and encouragement.

As Americans, we are fortunate in being able to live out our faith openly and being able to talk about our faith to those around us.  The early Christians did not have this luxury nor do many people around the world.  We must use this time and our freedom to tell others what our Christian faith has meant to us and what Christ’s love can do for them—freedom from a life of sin and the precious gift of eternal life.

Is your Christian life challenging?  If not, you are not living life the way God intended you to live it.  Do you have purpose and direction, or are you depressed and afraid?  Laurie will force you to examine your life and your faith.  His words will convict you and when you finish this book a choice will be made.  Either you will let God change your life or you will return to the same mediocre existence missing out on everything God has planned for you.

Greg Laurie is Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, CA, and hosts the radio program, “A New Beginning.”
