Living the Testimony

Living... The Testimony
By: Deidre Havrelock

Goodreads Summary:
We testify in accordance with what we know and have experienced.

…It’s time to learn and experience more!

The first book in this thought-provoking series explained how testimony relates to the Bible; this book will help you understand how testimony relates to living. Living…The Testimony will not only encourage Christians to reflect on who they believe Jesus to be (and why they choose to believe this), but it will also correct current misconstrued ideas as to what the Christian testimony is all about.

- a testimony is not about church;

- a testimony is not about God;

- a testimony is not about faith in general terms;

- this book contains numerous testimonies that will strengthen your faith in Jesus.

A strong Christian testimony is one that continually grows in the knowledge of Jesus, continually shares that knowledge boldly, while at the same time performs good works based on Jesus’ teaching of love—all while abstaining from works of darkness.

Because a biblical testimony deals not only with our belief system, but also with the way we conduct our whole lives, our Christian testimony becomes our most valuable asset. It is life itself.



I have to give this one 4.5/5 stars. For me, it is hard to find a book on Christian living that is applicable and has theological depth at the same time. Living... The Testimony does just that and more!

It takes a hard look at what a testimony is supposed to be based on scriptural references and compares that to what testimonies typically look like today.  I love how the author takes different testimonies and uses them as examples of proper and ill-focused testimonies rather than simply saying 'it should be done this way.'

Living... The Testimony is very practical.  Whether you are a new Christian or looking for a way to deepen your Christian walk, this is a perfect book for you.  The topic are deep enough for those who have spend years studying the Word.  At the same time, it explains things in a way that everyone can understand and apply to their own lives.
