The Walk – Hardcover
Written for Christians at all stages of spiritual growth and development, The Walk takes readers down several different paths toward greater spiritual maturity. The focus of most of the chapters is the identification and measurement of a wide range of qualities and behaviors associated with spiritual growth, including 12 major “measuring sticks.”
The Walk by Dr. Gene Getz borrows its title from the Bible’s numerous references to the walk of life and the need to find and stay on a good path. For instance, in Proverbs 3:6 (NIV) we read “in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight,” and “Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.” (1 Jn. 2:6, NIV)
Each of the twelve chapters begins with an introduction by an internationally acclaimed Christian leader. Introductory comments help set the stage for what follows, namely, an appeal to individual Christians by the author, Dr. Gene Getz, for a greater level of commitment to biblical standards of conduct. Specifically, The Walk addresses 12 major “measuring sticks” of maturity that include faith, hope, love, prayer, fellowship, worship, generosity, outreach and family. Easily understood, the book contains numerous nuggets of wisdom for readers who are seeking to improve their walk with God.
