Item description for What Now Lord? by David S. Massey...
Overview Now That I Am A Christ Follower The purpose of What Now Lord? is to help you move from where you are now in life toward where God wants you to be. From the non-believer to the most mature Christ follower, my prayer is to help you move forward in your life's journey and to make the principles in the Bible relevant to everyday living. What Now Lord? takes the reader on a sojourn from "just what is the Gospel" to discovering what God wants us to do once we accept the Gospel. The book is written in a conversational style that candidly takes you along my trek from believing to doubting, drifting away, and coming home again. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Now Lord??
Recommended for all new Christians May 10, 2004
A small book with a powerful message, "What Now Lord?" is a Biblically sound guidebook to what you should expect after becoming a Christian. This is a real-world examination of how God works in the life of a Christian instead of the all too common theoretical description of what "should" be happening. Besides the expected guidance of Bible reading and establishing a prayer life he also tackles some of the common misconceptions of both new Christians and well-meaning older Christians. For example, the second chapter is about hearing God's word. Are you called to a specific purpose? Is someone telling you that your personality or your education makes you a great potential missionary and that is an obvious direction God is calling you? David Massey provides clear direction for determining whether you are being called by God for a particular purpose or are just being directed there by your inner desires and/or well-meaning friends. How do you know you are being called? This is a very important chapter. Other chapters deal with things like drifting away - it happens. He provides an excellent and detailed interpretation of the parable of the prodigal son.
Following that section he starts with the discipline needed to grow in the Christian life. This area covers things like how to measure your progress, accountability and the use of small groups, the twelve steps for Christian living (a particularly good chapter) and evangelism.
While many churches hand out booklets on doctrine and similar items to the new convert, this is much more valuable and practical information for them to have. "What Now Lord?" is a recommended read for new Christians and older Christians who don't feel they have grown in their Christian life since their conversion.
Much needed guide to Christian living!!! Dec 18, 2003
The authors approach is non intrusive. His practical teaching tools draws the reader to diligently search themselves and implement the necessary steps to maturity. As he states, Walk the Talk, I LOVE IT. This non intrusive guide is a must for all believers. I wish I had these pearls when I began my journey years ago. It would have helped me overcome some of the many hurdles in my process. I highly recommend this to everyone. What Now Lord will enlighten the eyes of your understanding. His practical, yet informative 12 steps program is so rich that I recommend it to all pastors and teachers of the word.
Refreshing and delightful and a NECESSARY addition to your library of Christian living.
