Whether you are a new Christian, or have been for a while and feel in need of a refresher, or have been around church for years but things have only just clicked into place for you, this inspiring and practical book will give you the essentials—what you really need to know if you’re going to follow Jesus.

Gary Millar shows readers how letting the fundamental truths of the gospel take root in our hearts changes everything about the way we see God, ourselves and the world around us. He explores what this miraculous change on the inside looks like on the outside as we live our lives shaped around gospel priorities.

Packed full of warmth and wisdom, this book will set anyone up for a lifetime of living for Jesus. It's perfect for giving to new Christians and makes a great gift for baptisms or confirmations. Mentoring questions are included for each chapter, so it's also an ideal resource to use in one-to-one discipleship with younger believers.

D. A. Carson

Research Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Because more and more people who come to genuine faith in Christ have little or no Christian background, it is becoming more and more important to orientate them to Christian life and thought. What is needed is something of a cross between a gentle introduction to basic Christian belief and a ‘how-to’ manual. This book is it.

Former Archbishop of Sydney

I have been a Christian for sixty years, and I benefited from this book for beginners, and loved being challenged and encouraged by it. I wish I had been given it when I started out, but it would be worth reading at any stage.

If there is one profound yet simple book to read that will help you watch your life and doctrine closely, this is it. Gary Millar has written an engaging, Bible-saturated and Christ-exalting guide to the gospel-shaped life, which he clearly lives.

“Thorough, concise, engaging, helpful for those both old and new to Christianity.”

(Review written for 'Need to Know')

I was looking for a book to share with others new to their faith in Christ. This book drew me in right away, not just for others but for myself. It is thorough, concise, clear, true to the gospel, and engaging. I would recommend this book for anyone, old or new to the Christian faith, as well as those exploring. It always left me wanting to read more. 6 short chapters, recommended resources, and mentoring questions make this an accessible and helpful tool for use in groups or one-to-one discipleship.
