Book Review: Beyond Discipleship to Relationship

Beyond Discipleship to Relationship by Barbara A. F. Brehon is a devotional book going through all the points of how to increase your relationship with Christ from an admirer to a follower and a follower to a Christ-like life. 

This book is intended for people who have already a Christian but want to become closer to God and more Christ-like.  The books intent is to inspire intimacy with God, nurture the desire to be connected daily (hourly/minute-ly) with Christ, and cause one to delve into the bible looking for answers and reveling in the presence of God.

In truth I had this book with me when I had a few minutes to read and sadly it was not hard for me to put it down when I needed to.  Although she did an amazing job laying out the different topics and discussing them, I personally had a really hard time keeping focused while reading.

Even though I struggled getting through this book I would still recommend. The struggle was more my attention and method, time frame, and location of reading. I hope.  This book is great at laying out all the ways to consider allowing Christ to pour into your life and fill you.

Good luck to all who read this review and hopefully the book. May God bless you in your life.

Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from the publisher to read and review.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
