The journey of faith can be risky and overwhelming. Yet we join up, knowing that with the challenge comes excitement, the sense of being fully alive, and the extremity of living a life completely sold out to Jesus. And our goal is to become spiritually strong enough to stand till the end. Author and teacher Ben Patterson calls you to develop muscular faith—the faith of a Jesus follower whose heart, soul, mind, and time are committed to a cause of supreme worth. Through biblical insight and wisdom, you’ll be equipped for the only fight that matters—doing the work of God against the snares and temptations of this world. You’ll build up your spiritual muscles on the hard road to glory . . . and become stronger than you ever knew you could be.

Headline for Book Review: Real people with real struggles-Where do we find Strength? The bible is full of "regular" people that discovered the "muscular faith" to carry them through their struggles. Ben Patterson displays how to strengthen your heart, mind, soul for the only challenge that matters. If you are a Christian this book is packed with scriptures. He has quotes from John Piper and other famous Christian authors. He explains why the Nicene Creed is so important today. He talks about Heaven and hell, the importance of Salvation today, prayer and church membership. It answers questions that I have had in the past and in the current economic times of 2011. When I received my complimentary copy of the book Muscular Faith by Ben Patterson for a book review from Tyndale House Publisher, Inc I was so happy. In my opinion of this book if you are a new Christian than it is not the best book. I found it a great book because I have studied the Bible several times and taken classes. I loved all of the quotes and scriptures. What it made me realize is how lucky I am to be a Christian in 2011. The most important thing in my life is to study the bible and be able to share it with others. The scriptures and topics it covers is a review for me so that I am able to share it properly.more
