Closing the faith-life gap

by Graham Hooper


Price: £8.99
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
Published:19 April 2013
This book would have been well served with a cover that reflected the tube signs saying 'mind the gap', because in many ways that's what this book is about - minding the gap between what we say and what we do; what we profess to believe and what we really believe or want to believe. It's an excellent book filled with real thought, contemplation and great reflection questions throughout about the disconnect between the life we live and the belief we hold. It covers a number of places where we find this gap and using both Biblical reflection and real life assessment helps to uncover the gap and work on stepping over it safely. For me part three dealt wonderfully with work, success, and making a difference using insight from and into Nehemiah and Proverbs.

An easy to read and well grounded book that looks honestly at a topic most of us probably try to shy away from.
