Look Inside the Book

Being Christian: New Devotional Readings has St. Paul's ambitious goal: to present every person perfect in Christ. With that in mind, this wide-ranging devotional is full of strong texts and short teaching, all organized into bite-size readings. You will find applicable wisdom on every page. Throughout every chapter you will read a huge variety of powerful, concentrated Scriptures, covering fundamental topics like prayer, evangelism, everyday holiness, joy, love, family, and (of course) what it means to be a Christian.

From the Book:

"Strong teaching makes strong Christians. And it makes soft-hearted, tender, loving Christians. But soft teaching makes hard, callused Christians. Soft teaching is for people who have itching ears. They do not wish to have their lives interfered with." -Jim Wilson, from the Preface

Wonderful Guidance for Christians at all Maturity Levels

This book/devotional is outstanding. I appreciate his use and organization of Scripture formatted with minimal commentary. An excellent balance of Scripture (first) and man's commentary (second). Every Christian, at every maturity level, will find this a helpful book in their faithful walk with Christ. Praise the Lord for this work!

Outstanding, - one call out.

Firstly, what an amazing book! Everything that canon puts out is solid material. Reading Jim Wilson has been a great experience. I was watered and plan to re-read this book again.

Here is my call out. From time to time, Canon has some typos. But this book has a bunch of bible references that were just totally wrong. And I found out when I shared the reference with someone else and they said, “huh?”.

As I begin to read and study through the book, I found out there were several across the book (including the very first one), I would just say humbly, for a $17 book, this probably shouldn’t be the case. —other than that, it was outstanding.

I heartily recommend this book for saints young and old!!

A comprehensive and grounded study, I look forward to continuing in it.

I've purchased and given out a number of copies of "Being Christian", and will no doubt purchase and give out many more. It puts forth, in devotional format, not "How to be a Christian", but BEING A CHRSTIAN. It is highly recommended for ALL believers.
