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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Gary Millar has given us that rare combination, an accessible book written in a warm, engaging, realistic style but with content that has a depth arising from a thorough and thoughtful biblical and theological understanding. It will be a thoroughly useful book and I commend it warmly.

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.

It’s overwhelming to think of all the things I’d like to tell someone who is starting their journey of following Christ. I’m so glad Gary Millar wrote this book; he distills and explains what you need to know in a way that anyone can understand. This book is clear, faithful and relatable, and will be a joy to start giving away to friends!
