Whether your salvation took place today or decades ago, this book is a Holy-Spirit crafted tool that will deepen your maturity. Abby Kelly clearly partnered with the Spirit in writing this book. Expanding the definition of maturity to incredible depths, the study clears a path for believers to walk upon.
Exploring maturity as a key to unity, Abby builds a beautiful case for pressing into the design of God. Moving on to the topic of humility and then moving on to masterfully balance grace and law, the guide helps believers march forward to freedom. This study guide provides disciples with an awesome journey; I will be taking the journey again.
Kelly carefully closes the study by leading the reader to explore the depths of a love-powered, spirit-filled walk that produces for eternity. Beyond Belief is the study every Christian needs to live the life Jesus intends for us to live!
to my relationship with Jesus. God answered my desires through this wonderful book that I also used as a journal. Thankfully,
interacting with Beyond Belief: Jesus Saved You...Now What? coincided with some challenging emotional hurdles in my life, through which I have become more grounded in God's love, experiencing how much of an anchor His Spirit is inside of me.
I ear-marked several parts of the study for future reference, but the most powerful take-away for me at this time in my
life was in Week 3, Day 5, receiving more tangibly God's "matchless, unbroken companionship." The whole
study could be said to inspire this unbroken companionship between God and His child, and to minister to feelings of disappointment and loneliness. The Spirit-led progression of the study prepared my heart and mind to experience a more satisfying fellowship with Jesus and the joy that I felt when I noticed His help, input, and presence more often.
Objectively, Abby Kelly's theology is solid. As a Christian who details a few stories of her own, she is aware of the pitfalls
that Christians can easily fall into--and then uses the correct application of scripture to edify and encourage. Additionally,
her writing voice is loving, gentle, yet precise, and at times, humorous. At the end, I was thinking of who I might pass the book
onto, but then remembered the personal notes throughout, and was kind of glad that I will have it to refer back to. The study pointed me
to love, and how everything I think I might do for God is worthless if not done out of love. Highly recommend.
Now, most people equate spiritual maturity with the old people at church. The serious types who don’t have any time for silliness because they are wholly wrapped up in and committed to the ways of God. But that definition falls short.
In Beyond Belief the author goes across much of Scripture to show the richness of spiritual maturity and answers a few questions along the way:
What is it?
How do we get it?
What can we do with it?
Why does God want it?
Without going into specifics of the content, I can tell you some things I found extremely helpful within the book. First of all, the book is laid out like a workbook. The six week study is made up of 5 days each which consist of stories, Bible verses, questions and even the occasional mini lesson into the original languages.
I appreciated how thorough the author was with this study. This is not something you can just whip through on a Sunday morning. It’s meant to be involved and to challenge you.
I highly recommend this book if you are in a group looking to learn more about spiritual maturity, or are planning on doing a deep dive in your own time.
Though the book itself is not long, it is divided up into a six-week study with each week containing five lessons. Again, the lessons are short, but Abby has taken a lot of time and effort in providing various Scripture readings to accompany each one. These verses drive home the point of the day’s lesson, in addition to giving the reader more information to meditate on throughout the day. Some of the chapters even include personal stories or anecdotes to help drive the message home, and I found myself laughing or crying as I related to some of the stories.
Overall, the book was an enjoyable read and a valuable tool. I highly recommend it for Christians–young and old alike. Whether just beginning the believer’s walk or having followed Christ for many years, readers are sure to gain spiritual insights from this well-written guide to maturing in the faith.
