Nourishing Your Faith: Top Books on Spiritual Growth and Identity in Christ

by Daniel Hanson II 15 Apr 2024 1 comment

Spiritual growth is a lifelong pilgrimage that strengthens our relationship with God and anchors our lives in His truth. Books, serving as vessels of wisdom and experience, can guide us on this sacred adventure, equipping us to build firm spiritual foundations, understand the Bible, and discover our true identity in Christ.

Our spiritual journeys are as unique as we are, but the principles of faith are universal. These handpicked book recommendations offer nourishing insights into these universal principles. Whether you're taking your first steps in faith or you're a seasoned believer, these writings will challenge, comfort, and inspire you.

Breaking Our Religious Understanding

"Pagan Christianity" by Frank Viola

Have you ever wondered why we Christians do what we do for church every Sunday morning? Why do we “dress up” for church? Why does the pastor preach a sermon each week? Why do we have pews, steeples, and choirs? This ground-breaking book, now in affordable softcover, makes an unsettling proposal: most of what Christians do in present-day churches is rooted, not in the New Testament, but in pagan culture and rituals developed long after the death of the apostles.

"The Naked Gospel" by Andrew Farley

For those who are weary of Christian cliché and compromise crowding out what was supposed to be good news, The Naked Gospel offers the fresh take on the story of Jesus you've been waiting for. As a university student, Andrew Farley found himself physically and emotionally addicted to street evangelism and Bible study. Yet despite his fervid behavior, he knew something was missing.

Understanding Who You Are in Christ

"Victory Over the Darkness" by Neil T. Anderson

"Victory Over the Darkness Study Guide" by Neil T. Anderson

Dive deep into the heart of your identity with Neil T. Anderson's pivotal work. This book emphasizes understanding your identity as God's child and offers practical steps to live victoriously.

Laying Spiritual Foundations

"The Pursuit of God" by A.W. Tozer

Considered a classic of Christian literature, Tozer's powerful meditation challenges believers to pursue a more intimate relationship with God through the foundational truths of faith.

Getting to Know Jesus

"Beautiful Outlaw" by John Eldredge

Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things. In BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. 

Walking the Path of Spiritual Growth

"Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis’s articulate defense of the Christian faith transitions seamlessly into a guide for Christian living. It’s a solid foundation for anyone looking to understand and deepen their faith.

"Dangerous Prayers" by Craig Groeschel

In Dangerous Prayers, Groeschel will show you how to pray the prayers that search your soul, break your habits, and send you out to pursue the calling God has for you. But be warned: If you're fine with settling for what's easy, or if you're okay with staying on the sidelines, this book isn't for you. You'll be challenged. You'll be tested. You'll be moved to take a long, hard look at your heart. But you'll be inspired, too.

"Sit, Walk, Stand" by Watchman Nee

Sit, Walk, Stand is an inspiring look at Ephesians, opening our eyes to the central issues of our faith. It describes the process of Christian living and maturity in three words:
These three key words clearly show us the way to victory in this life—and for eternity.

More Sanctification

"The Bait of Satan" by John Bevere

The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God--offense. This trap restrains countless Christians, severs relationships, and widens the gulfs between us. Jesus said, "It is impossible that no offenses should come” (Luke 17:1). Although you will encounter offense, you can choose how you will react.

Drawing Closer to the Bible

"How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth" by Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart

This accessible guide provides readers with tools to glean a deeper understanding of Scripture, offering clarity on the Bible's many genres and contexts.

"Knowing Scripture" by R.C. Sproul

R.C. Sproul emphasizes the necessity of Scripture in the believer’s life, while giving straightforward advice on reading and interpreting it.

Our Story

Get, Do, Be Better is all about embracing life's journey: the winding roads, detours, and moments of growth that define us. I'm Danny, and like many, I've faced the challenge of aligning my life with God's will.

In 2020, I rededicated my life to Jesus Christ, and out of obedience to His guidance, I created Get, Do, Be Better. Our designs and products are not just apparel; they are crafted with purpose and infused with prayer, each item carrying a personal testimony.

Our dedication extends beyond clothing; we're committed to living out God's Word and advancing His kingdom. That's why 10% of every sale goes toward tithing to my home church and supporting a local Christian camp for kids I actively participate in.
