Be Mature: Growing Up In Christ by Warren W. Wiersbe is the first book I’ve chosen to begin my review / blog book club because it truly is a wonderful book.
I believe it is necessary to always encourage one another and help one another to increase our spiritual maturity. This book is based off the teachings of James and how we are able to apply them to our everyday lives.
This book has a foreward written by Ken Baugh, a word from the author, followed by 13 chapters. The average chapter is between 11-15 pages in length, but go over in detail solid key points which should be pulled from the chapter and allow understanding in how to apply them in daily modern living. Because of this, I have decided to do one chapter per week, allowing this review to be broken down over 15 weeks. This is including both the introduction and auto-biography to begin with and closing out with final thoughts and what was grasped most from the book.
