Dug Down Deep: Building Your Life on Truths That Last, Joshua Harris, Multnomah Books, 2011, 288 pages.

In this updated release on his earlier book Joshua Harris, senior pastor of Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg MD, adds a study guide to his book on theology and why it needs to matter to us. Harris’s own story is used to show why many areas of theology can and should affect us to a core level. Harris weaves his experiences, sometime lack of maturity or understanding of theology from his childhood and teen year into a wonderful book that covers a tremendous amount to theological ground!

The reality is this is a book that is geared toward those who are in the beginning stages of embracing theology and the study of God. Harris does a fantastic job covering major topics such as; the Bible, Christology, the Atonement, Redemption, Sanctification, Pneumatology, and the Church. In tackling these difficult themes, Harris is able to do it in an engaging way, in a way that draws you in and before you realize what it happening, you are studying difficult concepts that have been tossed about for hundreds of years!

For me this is a book that will be one that I direct people to who are looking for a primer, a solid place to begin diving into studying theology on a deeper level. This book is a fantastic find and resource.

I fully recommend this book and rate it a 4.5 out of 5!
