An updated edition of the down-to-earth resource that offers twelve practices to make Christian faith a way of life

Many Christians are looking for ways to deepen their relationship with God by practicing their faith in everyday life. This best-selling guide helps take belief out of the realm of theory and shows how to live it out in a series of twelve central practices such as hospitality, forgiveness, healing, testimony, and keeping Sabbath. Designed to work across a wide range of Christian laypeople, leaders, denominations, and study groups, this is the second edition of the book that Theology called "... a stimulating contribution to the work of making explicit the connection between what Christians do and what they believe."

  • Contains information on the practices discussed in the book and shows how they relate to and intersect with prayer, worship, and Bible study
  • Offers a guide for conversation, learning, and growth at the back of the book
  • This updated and expanded new edition includes a new introduction and two additional chapters that describes new insights into and experiences with the "practicing our faith" approach

The book includes a variety of prominent contributors, who draw on their rich shared experience as believers, theologians, ethicists, and educators.
