Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris

Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris As the new year progresses, I’m trying to read more. One thing that has been encouraging me in that endeavor is participating in book tours. This week it’s Dug Down Deep by Joshua Harris and I’m actually pretty glad that I went for this one.

As someone who was raised in church without really being sure I knew what I believed or why, I identified with Joshua Harris. I’ve questioned whether I believed because I’d been in church all my life, because it was all I knew, or because it was just expected of me.

And as an adult I’ve gone a long way from my church roots. So Harris’ book was a nice refresher for me. In it, he explains how orthodoxy and theology and doctrine aren’t just for scholars. They are for everyone who believes. If you don’t have a good foundation, where are you then?

Harris’ writing is very approachable – it’s a conversational style that’s easy to read and understand. His book is by no means a deep theological study, but he does give reference to many scholars he has read and learned from, which gives me many more things to add to my reading list.

This book gave me a lot to think about. If you’re returning to the church or want to delve deeper into what theology and doctrine mean to your spiritual journey, I think this is a good place to start.

This book was provided for review by the publisher, WaterBrook Multnomah.
