Item description for So, You're a Christian! Now What? by Catherine Painter...
Overview Congratulations! You've made a decision and made the commitment. You've accepted Christ as your Savior. So, you're a Christian! Now what?
Someone once said, "Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional." Scripture disagrees: Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good (1 Peter 2:2-3).
Christianity is all about growth. Just as physical newborns must grow and develop, spiritual newborns must develop skills for functioning and growing in the Body of Christ.
Too often, though, when someone accepts Christ as an adult, they receive little if any assistance to assure that spiritual growth. As a result, they can wander for years in a labyrinth of confusion, never understanding why they're so unsatisfied.
If you've found yourself in a quandary, or know someone who has, this book was written for you. Born out of her personal struggle to grow spiritually, this study by author and pastor's wife Catherine Painter encourages and assists spiritual babes through those first, important stages of Christian development.
Both new and long-time believers learn the similarities and differences in being born, and being born again; how to communicate - with God in prayer and quiet times; how to feed themselves - with God's Word; how to dress themselves - in the armor of God; how to assume their role in the family - using their talents and spiritual gifts; what it means to bear the family resemblance - by manifesting the fruit of the Spirit; how to share - their testimony; how to walk - the road that leads to life; and how to talk - the language of Christians.
So whether you're a new Christian wondering where to go from here, or a long-time Christian who knows you've missed something somewhere along the way, Congratulations! You're a Christian! Now what?

In the past, Catherine Painter struggled with what it means to be a Christian, and now she wants to help those who are unclear about what living a life of faith looks and feels like. An easy to read and understand book that is filled with scripture, So You Are a Christian, Now What? is suited for both the individual and those in study groups.
Perfect for a Beginner May 24, 2006
I'm a new Christian and have been searching for resources to help determine where to go now. Just as the title says, this study helps you to find answers to questions that you didn't even know to ask. The book is made up of thirteen lessons about beginning your new life as a Christian. The author received Christ as an adult and writes from that perspective, which I found to be very helpful. I highly recommend this for new Christians who are trying to figure out where to go after accepting Christ.
