Charles Solomon has written an excellent book for people who are struggling to live out the Christian life and failing on a regular basis. His conclusion to that sort of life is that surrender hasn’t fully happened and our identify in Christ is a key component to understanding how to “live out” the Christian life. I found this book refreshing and applicable to many issues I face in my own life. Many churches seem to teach that once you believe the Gospel, you have to put in the effort yourself to grow as a Christian. They may not directly acknowledge that is what they teach, but I think many Christians are defeated by trying in their own strength to live a life pleasing to God, rather than to let God live through them. If you want to know more about this approach, you should definitely read this book. This one and Watchman Nee’s Normal Christian Life book both do an excellent job explaining the details of how to live out your faith. Highly recommended.
