"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

As the culture in North America becomes increasingly post-Christian and post-modern, Christians should not expect to continue to develop their faith in a privatized and individualistic manner. If the church is to truly be the salt and light of the world, namely, a city on a hill that cannot be hidden, then the church needs to begin corporately living out and embodying the fruit of the Spirit (Matt 5:13-16). How else will Christian's "light shine before men, [so] that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matt 5:16)? For the Christian witness to be powerful, the Gospel needs to be preached through word and deed (the deed being the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit).
Life on the Vine is the best book that I have read which has explained the fruit of the Spirit. It is such a practical guide that I am going to make it a regular part of my ministry and approach to discipleship
I give this book five stars out of five.
I bought this book to use as a guide for a Bible study on the Fruit of the Spirit. It was the best material I've ever read on this subject. My Bible study group was very blessed with what we discovered about God's blessings and what he can do through us. This book has the general information you've learned already about the fruit of the Spirit; but even better, the author really delves into what it is in our lives and in our culture today that hinders us from really cultivating these fruit in our lives to be effective servants of Christ. He also emphasizes that the fruit that God produces in us is not for our own personal benefit or enjoyment, but rather to serve our fellow Christians in church (as well and share the gospel with Gentiles).
It was evident that the author did lots of research and prayerful consideration to create the book. I highly recommend this to any Christian, although, since it's a little advanced, it may be a little high-level for beginning believers? Anyway, this book is fantastic and I'm buying my 3 siblings and my mom each a copy for Christmas!!
I am excited to try to apply these concepts to my life. I have often been interested in trying to analyze my own culture as I explore the cultures of others, and with the recognition that not only did Christianity originate in a very different culture but has also now moved back away from the West, I am learning to place a higher emphasis on cultural exegesis.
