There is a problem within today's churches that in many cases causes them to go stagnant. Christians can get discouraged, unattached to the church, and desperate. Leigh Crane-Freeman helps the reader get back on the right track. She encourages the reader to focus more on who you are through Christ and less on what you do.
The book is well referenced with end notes at the end of each chapter and loaded with scripture as a guide. It is divided into two parts. In the first, she lets the Christian know that they are not alone in feeling a spiritual void from the church and explains some of the problems in today's church. In the second part there is specific information for the struggling Christian to put them on the path for spiritual growth. She answers questions such as "What does it mean to be led by the Holy Spirit?", and "What does God need from me to work through me?" There are eleven questions in all that the author answers using scripture and practical advice.
This would make a nice devotional, Bible study, or could even be used in a church setting because she does encourage anyone that has fallen away from the church to go back.
