Doctrine and theology – no matter how they are viewed today – are vastly important and inescapable. Theology matters, because if we get it wrong, then our whole life will be wron. e’re all theologians. The question is whether what we know about God is true. And with that, the book takes off on the course of a systematic theology, though you’ll find no dry, dusty doctrine here

In Dug Down Deep my longtime friend Joshua Harris explains the basics of Christian theology in a way all of us can understand. They have the courage to stand up for truth humbly . Dug Down Deep is an incredible book! It's a tangible and incarnate look at theology. I would give it to any young Christian who wants to understand their faith.
Dug down Deep : Building Your Life on Truths That Last. This book will introduce the young Christian to the glory of orthodox Christian doctrine. It will also encourage those who do know doctrine, to aim for a humble orthodoxy and see how such knowledge should fuel love and service for others.
About book: Dug Down Deep is not your typical doctrinal or theological study book. You most likely will not find it in a pastoral theology class. Yet, the book offers a profoundly simplistic view at doctrine. Without getting tied up in weighty words and denominational divides, Joshua Harris writes about his own journey in Christianity while teaching the reader the doctrinal truths. By producing a relational approach to doctrine instead of a conceptual approach, the reader grasps a firmer understanding of concepts and story. very good book!!build on life!! arpitam123.

Harris begins Dug Down Deep with a thought-provoking question: what are you building your life on? He then goes on to talk about Jesus' parable in Matthew 7, comparing the man who built his house on the sand with the man who built his house on the more solid foundation: rock. Harris argues that building on the rock takes work, it takes some digging, but in the end, after the wind and the rain and the storms, the house remains standing. Another recommended chapter is the last one, where Harris writes on humble orthodoxy, bringing home the point of how crucial it is to remain humble in our lives. This is something I think many of us should read and take to heart, as pride is ever so subtle and we must be on guard.
As I mentioned before, he wrote the book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, a book that turned Christian dating on it’s head, advocating courtship over dating. Since then, he has become a pastor and written several books on the church. In Dug Down Deep, Harris takes on the pragmatism of most Christians when it comes to doctrine. It’s sort of a toned down version of J. I. Packer’s Knowing God for today’s Christian. Many Christians tend to eschew doctrine just for following Jesus, whatever that means to people.
