Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've often thought that Romans 12 offered a "rule of life" for the Christian, and that you could base your whole life off this one chapter of the Bible.

Evidently, Chip Ingram thinks so too, and in his new book "Living on the Edge" he lays it out for us, point by point. I highly recommend taking this book in small sections and doing some of the exercises it offers. Romans is thought by many, including me, to be a letter that could get you the whole Gospel if it were all you had of the New Testament.

But in addition to teaching us what to believe, we can learn how to LIVE.

Surrender your whole life, you body, your everything, to God, and learn how to do it. I've had some occasions over the past few years where I've basically just sat and read this one chapter of the Bible in it's entirety every day for a month or two. I recommend this (obviously, in addition to regular readings), and Chip's book is a great way to make this work for you as a way of living, not just thinking.

If you want to understand how to really live a Christian life, explained with clarity and honesty, this book is for you. It will hit you right between the eyes, but is delivered with a tender heart, directing you to where God's biggest and best blessings are found. Based on Romans chapter 12, it lays the foundation for how to be surrendered to God, to live separate from the world's value system, to have a sober self assessment, to serve others in love and supernaturally respond to evil with good. I am recommending this to everyone I know, in the hope it will impact their lives as much as it is my own.

Whether you are a "babe" in Christ, a veteran soldier of the cross, teacher, student, pastor or layperson, you will be enormously edified by this work, which is suitable for group study, or personal study. I am currently using this book in a small group and it has blessed me enormously.
After reading this book, I can see why. Romans will compel the serious Christian to "earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints."

Compelling analysis and teaching & personal application of the Christian life at its essence.

I have always been somewhat intimidated by the dense theology of the book of Romans and was intrigue by this author's proposal that Romans 12 is the one chapter in the bible that most encapsulates the Christian faith-life. I think that the author delivers on that promise with thoughtful teaching, step-by-step analysis of the scripture, real life examples, and modern day application. It breaks down each verse and concept slowly, and challenges you to funnel your life experiences and perspectives through the screen of scripture. I found that this book helped me as a long-time believer to realize afresh the potential depth of my faith in Christ. At the same time I felt that it was a great book for a new believer (or study group with the additional video curriculum). The basic foundations of faith in Christ are so well defined.

Format: Hardcover
Author, speaker and pastor Chip Ingram has worn many professional hats as a Christ follower. But no matter where he serves, there is a sense of urgency and passion about his work, message and compelling need to convince hurting people to trust God again (or for the first time). In this expansive resource, he expounds upon Romans 12 as the foundation for understanding and experiencing a daring faith walk with Christ. He writes in the Preface, "Life is short and your time is important."

From there, Ingram suggests that every reader ask themselves 4 Big Questions before delving into this material. If you are spiritually stuck, are tired of the spiritual status quo, long to discover who you really are, wish you could experience authentic community, or need a clear pathway to spiritual maturity, then LIVING ON THE EDGE is for you. On the flip side, this book is not for you if you are satisfied with your spiritual life, want a quick fix to your problems, dislike being spiritually challenged, or being spiritually mature is not a high priority.

Second, Ingram answers the question What is this book about? In short, he talks about how scripture explains what an authentic disciple of Jesus Christ really is and how to become one. He shares that this text will help believers learn how to give God what He wants most, how to get God's best for your life, how to come to grips with the real you, how to experience that genuine community with others, and how to overcome the evil aimed at you.

Next, Ingram tells his readers how LIVING ON THE EDGE will be different from others written on similar themes. Throughout every chapter of this practical handbook, he presents an actual profile of a specific discipline and a proven pathway to become more like Jesus as it is applied.

Chip has great stuff on parenting. He has worked on living spiritually in his own life, has some great lessons learned, and so this book might help others do the same.

Heads-Up: this is normal, from-the-Bible Christianity. This is not a book, or a person, who believes that "spirituality" means that you go to yoga once a month, and have Buddhist sayings posted around your desk, and decorate according to a Fung sui book you got a Books-A-Million or Half Price Books because it was on sale.
