Why We Need a Fighting Faith

by Byrd, Aimee

Your spiritual life should be a battle! The writer of Hebrews tells us to “hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering” (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply “holding fast” turn into such a workout of faith? Author and blogger Aimee Byrd invites us to join her in some “theological fitness” training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the “fighting grace” God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life. Endorsements: “What a gem this book is—so full of encouragement and so honest and genuine. . . . Wonderfully practical and readable . . . grounded in good theology.” —Thomas R. Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; “In this Scripture-saturated book we are rightly warned of the rigors as well as promised the rewards of holding fast to Christ when we feel the burn and want to give up.” —Nancy Guthrie, Author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament; “Aimee Byrd is the very best kind of theological sensei. . . . She shows how to gain and maintain theological fitness—and how to find great enjoyment in the exercise.” —Phil Johnson, Grace to You radio program; “Aimee drives the point home vividly in her distinctive, memorable, and popular style. Challenging yet enjoyable and valuable.” —Fred G. Zaspel, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, Pennsylvania.
