If you have ever read anything by Brad Wilcox, you will know how amazing his work is. His genuineness and love for people shines right through his words. I actually had the privilege of taking a class from Professor Wilcox while studying at BYU. He was one of the people who helped you remember why you wanted to be a teacher. His enthusiasm for teaching and children is amazing! After you read this book (which you totally should) definitely check out more of his books and talks. You can watch this amazing BYU Speech called His Grace is Sufficient and I've heard his book Continuous Atonement is amazing. I'm going to read that one next.
The 7-day Christian is a wonderful book all about how living our Christian beliefs every day can change people and ourselves.
Many religious books are great, but can sometimes be hard to get through. And maybe it's just me, but I can read a fictional novel much quicker than a religious book any day...Except for this one. I love that this book reads like a novel. The 7-day Christian is so interesting and full of personal stories, quotes, and examples that you want to just keep reading more!
I also love how he explains things in such a simple way. For example, He explains why God gives us freedom to choose. I read it to my husband because it was put in such a way that just made total sense. And in a way that I've never thought of before.
Another thing I love about this book is his reference to classic and popular novels - Les Miserables, Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and even Harry Potter. He takes situations from each of these novels and uses them as examples to support his ideas. I love that! Another way that it makes the book so interesting and helps you make connections that you may not have before.
This is a great book to help us better understand what it means to be a Christian and how to show that to others. Not in an intrusive way, but by living a life that shows discipleship of Christ. By taking little steps along the way, we can each become a Christian every day of the week and help make the world a better place.
Definitely go check out The 7-day Christian at Deseret Book!
