"The Walk" by Shaun Alexander

Not long ago, I saw Shaun Alexander on a t.v. interview, and then decided I needed to read his book. Imagine how excited I was when I found it available through the Blogging for Books program. And I'm so glad I did. For me, it was probably one of the best books I've read.

In "The Walk", Shaun Alexander tells us how important it is to walk with God... not lagging a step behind or trying to get a step ahead, but allowing God to set the pace for our lives. He points out that God is a God of order. His work in our lives is not random. He leads us through various stages of spiritual maturity.

The author explains in great, yet simple detail the five stages we go through for our spiritual growth. Those five stages being: Unbeliever, Believer, Example, Teacher, and Imparter. He points out how God can use us no matter what stage we are in... but each stage is important for the sake of our maturity in Christ.

There is a detailed chapter on each stage that includes Biblical references along with Shaun's personal experiences. Simple truths expressed in a simple, yet informative and encouraging way. A great book to help get a clear understanding of your 'walk' with God and how it leads to spiritual growth.

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for my honest review.

Thanks for reading and God bless!

A very fine book I recommend is by Randy Alcorn: SAFELY HOME, about the Faith and persecution in China, and it knocked my socks off! I also urge everyone to visit:
I love your blog and hope that you will email it to me when you post, please, as we are all so busy.

Warm Regards,
