Dug Down Deep: Building Your Life on Truths That Last by Joshua Harris

“What are you building your life on?” This is the opening sentence in the book and a question we should ask ourselves often. The title of the book is taken from the story of the foolish man who built his house on the sand and the wise man who built his house on the rock. Sometimes we have to dig a little to find the bedrock of truth to lay the foundation of our life upon. In this book, Harris points to the bedrock of Christian orthodoxy to show us where to start digging.

The book is laced from beginning to end with Harris’ personal experience. He is a winsome writer and I found myself engaged with his story from page one. The first two chapters are his apology of why he has written this book. I found myself identifying with his story in almost every way. The next eight chapters cover the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. Harris fleshes these doctrines out in a way that is conversational and fresh. The last chapter answers the question,”Now that I know this truth, how do I live in it’s light?” The answer is well worth the price of the book. This edition also has a study guide that can be used individually or with a small group.

Dug Down Deep is a much needed message in today’s quagmire of relativism. This is an excellent introduction to theology for a young or new Christian, a good refresher for a seasoned Christian and a corrective for those who have strayed away from humble orthodoxy. I recommend this book as a thought provoking yet easy to read addition to anyone’s library.
