Book Review and Giveaway - Gospel Fluency Handbook


We slip in and out of believing God's word about us and trusting in his work on our behalf. We forget who He is, what's He's done and in light of that who we are.

Do these statements resonate with you? Then the Gospel Fluency Handbookwas written for you. For those who've realized there are areas of life-your normal, everyday, busy life-where you disbelieve God, His goodness and His gospel. For those who are keenly aware and weighted down by a failure to connect the way gospel truths actually matter to everyday life.

The Gospel Fluency Handbook is designed to help you and your group become fluent in the gospel-in other words, to help you move from unbelief to belief. The discussions and exercises in this 8-week interactive handbook provide a step-by-step immersion of your mind, heart, soul, and life in the gospel. Each week follows a simple format: three sets of personal readings and reflections, a weekly guide for group discussion and exercises that will lead to becoming a more gospel-fluent people. People who are learning to see and then speak the truths of Jesus into the everyday stuff of life. Handbook includes free download code for a companion video series.

This is one of the best, in-depth studies of the Gospel I've ever read. It way exceeds anything I've learned or read in the past. This is not a book/study that you will go through quickly but one you will savor as you dig deep into what the Gospel really means.

I absolutely love all the in-depth questions in this book. They helped me to really focus on what I was learning and apply it to my life. This book is meant to study in a group situation, which would have been great, but I found it a blessing to do it on my own, too.

This book shows us what the Gospel is and how to live it out in our every day life. It's not always easy to do this but I feel more equipped to do so now that I've read and studied through this book.

If you really want to make the Gospel an integral part of your life and truly understand how you can live and breath it, this book is for you! I love this book and plan on going through it again and again because it is truly life changing! I give it 5 out of 5 stars
