More About the Author

Who Is Greg Laurie?

Greg Laurie is the senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California. He began his pastoral ministry at the age of 19 by leading a Bible study of 30 people.

Since then, God has transformed that small group into a church of some 15,000 people. Today, Harvest is one of the largest churches in America, and consistently ranks among the most influential churches in the country.

In 1990, Laurie began holding large-scale public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. Since that time, more than 4,219,000 people have attended Harvest Crusades events around the United States, and in Australia and New Zealand. More importantly, more than 350,300 people have registered professions of faith through these outreaches.

Laurie is the featured speaker of the nationally-syndicated radio program, A New Beginning, which is broadcast on more than 500 radio outlets around the world. A New Beginning is also one of the most popular Christian podcast downloads on Apple's iTunes Store.

Laurie was also a guest on CNN's Larry King Live in August of 2005, and he has appeared on many other television news programs. Along with his work at Harvest Ministries, Laurie serves on the board of directors of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, among others. He holds honorary doctorates from Biola University and Azusa Pacific University.

In addition to speaking and assisting other ministries, Laurie has authored over 65 books including Hope for Hurting Hearts, For Every Season, The Greatest Stories Ever Told, Signs Of The Times, and God's Design for Christian Dating,What every Christian needs to know, to name just a few. His books have been translated into many languages, including Korean, Latvian, Portuguese, German, and Spanish.

His autobiography, Lost Boy, was released by Regal Books, is one of the best selling Christian biographies in recent times. The accompanying documentary film, Lost Boy: The Next Chapter, has won a number of awards at film festivals around the world.

He has written study notes for two Bibles in the New Living Translation: the New Believer's Bible and The Seeker's Bible. He was also the editor for the recently-released Start! Bible in the New King James Version, published by Thomas Nelson.

Format: Paperback
Laurie's engaging, no holds barred, honest writing style draws you in immediately from the opening pages, and keeps you engaged. This is no dry "theory" or fill-in-the-blank approach. Laurie is gifted at leading the reader into such topics as "How Being Saved Makes Me Different," "Getting to Know Him through Bible Study," or "Overcoming Temptation" in a way that is easy to follow, fleshed out with real examples, yet full of Scripture along with his applicational insights. It is also quite comprehensive for such a short volume, dealing with such topics as sin, salvation, assurance, true faith, repentance, confession, temptation, Bible study, prayer, fellowship (no excuses for skipping church), trials, seeking guidance, and sharing your faith. In the first two chapters he makes a strong case that your faith, if it is genuine, will create a real change in your life. He is careful to point out that faith alone, apart from works, saves, but that genuine faith results in works. He maintains a healthy balance, however, there is one section he calls the six "indicators" from 1 John that proportionately runs long on the "fruit as evidence" of faith aspect. If you were to put the book down at this point you might get the wrong impression. Keep reading and you'll see he wraps this very challenging discussion (i.e., James and Paul on faith)up well. The tone is encouraging and prophetic, not legalistic. Recommended! Especially if you won't be able to get with someone regularly and you want something that they might actually read on their own. But it would make a great book to discuss as well.

I ordered this book to see if it was one I would like to share with new believers I have won to the Lord. I reviewed it briefly and think it is great. It has simple explanations of what it means to be a Christian and how to grow in the Lord.
