About the Book:
What will you build your life on?
With startling transparency, Joshua Harris shares how we can rediscover the relevance and power of Christian truth. This is book shows a young man who rose quickly to success in the Christian evangelical world before he realized his spirituality lacked a foundation—it rested more on tradition and morality than on an informed knowledge of God.
For the indifferent or spiritually numb, Harris’s humorous and engaging reflections on Christian beliefs show that orthodoxy isn’t just for scholars—it is for anyone who longs to know the living Jesus Christ. As Harris writes, “I’ve come to learn that theology matters. It matters not because we want to impress people, but because what we know about God shapes the way we think and live. Theology matters because if we get it wrong then our whole life will be wrong.”
Whether you are just exploring Christianity or you are a veteran believer finding yourself overly familiar and cold-hearted, Dug Down Deep will help you rediscover the timeless truths of Scripture. As Harris challenges you to root your faith and feelings about God in the person, work, and words of Jesus, he answers questions such as:
What is God like and how does he speak to me?What difference does it make that Jesus was both human and divine?How does Jesus’s death on the cross pay for my sins?Who is the Holy Spirit and how does he work in my life?
With grace and wisdom, Harris will inspire you to revel in the truth that has captured his own mind and heart. He will ask you to dig deep into a faith so solid you can build your life on it. He will point you to something to believe in again.

If you are Christian and a believer, then you must check this book out. If you aren’t a Christian and believer but you have questions, you must check this book out and read how Joshua Harris dug down deep and found faith in a way that you can too! This book was a great one, with Joshua Harris explaining theology of things taught in the Bible and that all you have to do is dig down deep in order to find your faith, and learning the workings of God’s heart and mind and what He wants us to do. He uses his real life experiences as examples in this book, of how he dug down deep. He teaches us different ways to reach deep into our faith and over come our struggles. Not only does Harris make this book an honest & humble one, but at the same time he adds some humor to it so it is not a boring book. I think this book would be a great Bible Study topic….everyone reading it and then getting together and discussing Harris’ thoughts into the theological adventure into the bible and faith, and most importantly, the workings of God’s mind, heart, and love for us. I give this book 4 stars and recommendation!
