Are you ready to really live your faith?

Ask a crowd of Christians whether they believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior, and all hands will go up. Ask the same crowd whether they live like Jesus, and most of those same hands will come down. Why is this? Why is it so hard to bridge the gap between belief and real life?

Our way of living the Christian life is often more about intellect than experience. In this winsome book Gary W. Moon offers a thirty-day apprenticeship with Jesus, a journey in which you can actively practice being with Jesus day in and day out. Each day's reading uses compelling stories and Scripture and suggests an apprenticeship activity to help you bring your faith into real life.

"Moon's book is full of wisdom, laugh-out-loud humor, moving stories, and practical exercises designed to help the reader develop a lifelong practice of continually being with Jesus as his apprentice. . . . This approach to the cultivation of one's life with Jesus in a continual, moment-by-moment way will be paradigm shifting, and a breath of fresh air to many who feel stifled by traditional devotional habits commonly prescribed to Christ followers. Moon is to be commended for attempting to move us away from the exclusively forensic understanding of salvation that has contributed to the lack of any noticeable different between those who profess to be followers of Christ and those who do not. By casting a vision of discipleship as an apprentice relationship between the Master Jesus and ourselves, he invites us to see discipleship as a life of participation in what the Master is doing both in us and through us. . . . A worthwhile, accessible resource."--Journal of Spiritual Formation & Soul Care
